116/2011 falling sun

116/2011 falling sun, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Striking sunset tonight. The sun like a fireball falling through the blanket of clouds, colouring the sky in warm hues of orange, red and brown.

Somehow the scene looks religious, or a rather stereotypical romantic backdrop to type a twee poem on. Yet, it was what I witnessed with my own eyes, very real, and captivating. A good ending for a good day.

And best of all – this picture was taken at 8.30 pm, and the sun was still quite high – the clouds misleadingly look like the horizon.

    This is when your days get so much longer than outs. You are so right about this being a perfect backdrop for a romantic poem – it makes a beautiful photograph.
