A superior sunset

The sunset begins.
The sunset begins.

Sunset time last Thursday.  There in the  sky was a large, puffy, bruise-coloured cloud, washed at the edges with a soft copper tint.  As it swelled, it briefly developed brilliant aquamarine edges which had disappeared by the time I’d fetched my camera.

We watched from the window, we watched from the roof terrace.  Then I grabbed Daughter Number 1 who was staying for a few days, and we marched up the hill together to the square outside the Church to watch the spectacle from there.  Here it is.

  1. It’s amazing when the clouds captures the shadows and colors of a sunset. It’s been clear the last few sunsets (or completely cloudy) and there has been little color on the sky. Beautiful.
