Just Another Uncommon Sunset


In spite of the cold weather I find that I cannot ignore those sunsets that sometimes appear out of a cotton gray nowhere as the wind dies down at the end of the day and the sun reappears for a brief time with just enough clouds lingering to catch the pink light before all vanish like  shape-shifters into the charcoal sky.  In the lower left of the photo above is my neighbor's sailboat sitting, waiting for them to return from a month in Florida.  I am sure it is thinking, "Why didn't you take me? How could you leave me behind?"    



The sun is moving slowly to the right and in a few months will set just over that little open space of water so that I can take photos from down by the dock instead of up on my deck.

We get some beauties here too and last night there was a long cloud in the sky similar to the one in your first picture.

the sunsets bring peace in finding the end of yet another day....tht first one, the orange cloud edge almost looks like smoke rising...

Lovely. On fortunate you are to be able to enjoy these sunsets from your home.

We had one similar tonight -- the clouds broke earlier than they predicted, and what we could see over the trees and houses was lovely, but not as lovely as your water view.

I'm fascinated with how the elongated cloud in the first image seems to follow the line of the central tree. What a beauty of a sunset.
