I'm becoming something of a sunset connoisseur, in fact I now have hundreds of images, from the gentle and unassuming ones to the magnificent and spectacular. The slightest hint of pink or gold light shining through the windows has me running to the dining room where the camera is always kept and then out one of the numerous doors to wonder around in a happy daze. With eyes fixed on the gorgeous scense in front of me I tend to be a bit careless about where I'm walking and end up doing a lot of tripping and falling but in the garden it's usually onto grass so it's okay.
From my bedroom balcony a panoramic view
I'm fascinated by the shapes of the leaves against the sky and how the edges are gilded in gold
I've learned to turn around from time to time to capture the views behind my back. The soft light on the house transforms the colors of the walls from pale yellow to "Just Joey" shades. This was my dad's favourite rose and I've planted one wherever we move to. I'm not sure if it'll grow so close to the sea but I'm going to stick it in a big terracotta planter and hope for the best.
It's very difficult to finish that last urgent email or spreadsheet when the sunset shines so seductively into my office ...
... so I don't even try !
