A Springtime Sunset in Sydney

22 Oct

Silhouettes on the sunset

Sydney sunset in Spring

Sunsets have always fascinated me. Years ago,  a  superb view was ours without effort: through a back window, with a picturesque gum tree in the foreground.

Sadly, those days are long gone: redevelopment has seen to that: and what remains are mere glimpses.

Fortunately, tonight, a glimpse of red catches my eye, and I do what I’d never done before.

Camera in hand, I speed around the block to a series of vantage points,  and almost breathlessly try my luck. As a mere  onlooker, the magnificence of the sky: its colours and patterns:  is awe-inspiring.

Scientists write dispassionately about how it all comes about: through molecules, air particles, and light rays.

Somehow I prefer just to observe and admire  its glory.
