A Month of Glorious Sunsets

Moments at Sunset on 11 November 2013.

Through the clouds. Moments at sunset on 11 November 2013…

During the time I’ve had the pleasure of living with an expansive view of the western sky, I can say that never have I witnessed such glorious sunsets as those experienced in November 2013. Every afternoon I was drawn to my balcony like a joyful child in wonder of the play of light. Each sunset was so different and within a night’s dusk period the sky was transformed into many glorious moments that unfolded and continuously evolved. Some days there were wild storms followed by electric fluorescent colours or silver linings. Other days were more modest with hazy clouds and delicate highlights.

Here I have selected my favourite sunset moments from the month – many of which occurred all in the same afternoon – the sky transforming before ones eyes in the space of minutes. The 18th of November was a particularly amazing sunset day! Please enjoy the sheer beauty and immensity of nature captured here!

...colour intensifies...

...until the sun appears like a skirling orb on the horizon.
