September Sunset

While having dinner with my menfolk last night, I saw my husband glance over my shoulder at the window behind me, his fork held briefly suspended.
Still eating, I raised my eyebrows in question. Master of understatement, his response was a shrug,
and a muttered, "Oh, nothing..nice sunset."

Magic words to my ears! Dinner was forgotten as I gasped a quick, "Excuse me!", grabbed my camera and hurried out to the deck.

'Nice' hardly begins to describe the magical blues and golds that painted the evening sky! I love the mercurial quality of clouds, the swift and everchanging transformations that hypnotize and render one spell-bound. I took a few shots then leaned on the railing to simply soak up all that splendour.

"Your dinner's getting cold," I heard a voice warn me from inside, but there was no contest as to which I wanted more.

Food for the body or food for the soul...the feast for my eyes won out as it always will with this mad photographer!

Gorgeous!

And you were so right to grab your camera and let your dinner get cold. In my experience, that brilliant sky only lasts a few moments at a time - - -

Lynette,
Thank you for sharing this wonderful view!
It was of course well worth forgetting about dinner and even dishes, just to capture this 'one-off' photographic opportunity!
Best wishes,
Eileen

Oh this is my kind of sky but then I love skies of all kinds, I love the ever changing scenes that clouds and sunsets and sunrises give us. I can fully understand your dinner being forgotten, so many times I too have left my husband to continue dining on his own while I am feasting on nature.
Your photos are fantastic.

Wow, that sky is beautiful. We had a great sunset last week, alas I was in the wrong place, and had no camera with me anyway!
