Last minute

I've been so spoiled by the beautiful weather which we've had lately that I haven't even bothered
taking my camera to work with me. Normally it goes everywhere, even if it's not used. But for the
past week, the weather has been so beautiful that I've been able to go out and about in the
evenings, in the beautiful golden light before the sun goes down. Not so this evening. The
temperatures have dropped and we actually had rain.
I still have lots of photos to process from the weekend so I was sorely tempted to skip
my photo of the day today. But a quick glance out the window revealed that the sun
was going down in a blaze of glory so I got out just as another shower was starting.

What a blessing to see this at the end of the day. It would surely make anyone who saw it sleep well.

Lovely bit of sunsettiness.

Well done for getting out - when I see a last-minute bit of sunset I always manage to persuade myself that I'll have missed it by the time I get out there.
Super atmospheric shot :o)

Beautiful shot Mairead. We had one very similar tonight, but I only captured it with my eyes because I was working in the garden.

Excellent colours, particularly the way the saturation fades off as you ascend into the sky. Given the amount of shape in the clouds I think that keeping only a small amount of horizon was a good call; no more that that was needed.

Beautiful capture.

That cloud looks like a blimp on the horizon :) Very restful.
