A delay of two hours due to an inbound passenger’s illness and the need for a forensic clean. I suspect Virgin Australia assigned us a different plane.
The later flight awarded a view of the setting sun; clouds looking like a bushfire, blazing in the distance.
The Autumn sunsets are a welcome sight as I near home. Taken from the footbridge crossing the Parramatta Road, Leichhardt.
I was willing the bus to get the stop near the end of the road on way home this evening. I wanted to be able to take a picture of dusk from the footbridge over the Parramatta Road, Leichhardt.
When I think of the words dusk and dusky they conjure images of muted tones and dusty pastel shades. I am happy with the photo of the sunset above, I think it is in this ilk.
After experiencing this spectacular sunset yesterday the adage was proved wrong. Today the sky has maintained a cloud-filled mantle of gloom.
Last evening I noticed the sunset transforming the metal trim on buildings into golden bands of light. I was not quick enough to capture the moment, however as I neared home I caught the sun dipping below the horizon.
Within seconds this scene faded into a memory. Sunset after the rain.
I had to be quick to snap this sunset behind the UNSW Library Tower.
Loud country silence is heard.
Distant sounds; insects and birds.
Transition from day to night,
Air hinting of chill.
Softly bathed in Autumn light,
The landscape is still.
This peaceful moment was captured during a recent trip to Orange and Mudgee, five hours’ drive inland from Sydney.
We are being treated to unseasonably warm days and colourful sunsets; I’m not complaining.
