As sun goes down.......

Sunset from my window

I can't remember the last time I posted a sunset image here.....this one, last night warranted a special mention...so it's here....as seen from our bedroom window.

The color of the sky is something that always amazes me. Different regions seem to have different tones - which further varies depending on weather and time of day. Or whatever direction we happen to be pointing.

Whatever the case, the sky has painted an absolutely perfect backdrop for an absolutely perfectly composed silhouette. Breathtaking.

It was my daughter's birthday that day, so it seems appropriately beautiful, Moi! She's now 38. :)

Such a gorgeous sunset you captured! We have too many trees in the way unfortunately so seeing sunsets here can be difficult. I'll just have to come back and look at yours a few more times.

Congratulations on POTW from Hilary over at The Smitten Image!

That's perfectly gorgeous! Particularly the light in the vases highlighting it just so that it looks as if they are black flowers, with blue leaves.

A friend of mine who is a writer was talking about his impatience with classic literature, preferring to read contemporary. How classic lit tends to read a bit like it is attempting to be National Geographic, describing vistas in just exhaustive detail, trying to paint a picture in the minds of readers.

I pointed out that readers were incredibly unlikely to see some of the things described in a mass produced form, and that writers really did create the majority of visuals for their readers prior to the invention of color photography.

Your picture is the sort that could have an entire chapter dedicated to describing it. There's just that much depth, and atmosphere going on :-)
