Sunset Strip

Tonight at about 9ish pm it was lovely to watch the hot day rinse away and the cool evening begin. Here is the view through the gap recently vacated by the macrocarpa.  It took about 20 minutes.  At first I was irritated by the street lamp but on reflection, it does give the view a certain je ne sais quoi.*

  1. Lovely to see the changing colours and light in this sequence. It is amazing how at sunset the picture can change from one minute to the next.

  2. Absolutely lovely. I have not stood and watched a sunset for some time, but I did watch an entire sunrise sequence on December 9th at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina. Fascinating.

  3. What a wonderful sunset. The lamppost can always be Photoshopped out whereas the macrocarpa would have been a challenge too far.

  4. PS I rather liked your comments with embedded enabled which seems to have come and gone in the course of a day.

  5. Thanks for your comment chaps. I'm pleased you enjoyed the show.
    Geeb, I didn't change the comments format, but I've now done so. Must've been a poltergeist.
