All the colours of sunset

Sunset Colours

The sun had just sent when I went up on the roof the other night. We'd just had the news about Jeoff, and I needed to just sit with the camera for a while. Nature came up trumps with one of the calmest, most colourful sunsets I'd seen for a long while. The red and gold of the sunset slowly faded over the horizon, chased by the dark blue of the night sky.

A lovely moment in a stressful week.

Putney, London

That is just gorgeous. My favourite colour is the blue right at the top of that picture.

Watching the full spectrum creep across a sky at sunset is, truly, worth giving up a couple of hours out of anybody's busy life. And the colours re-organise themselves into different priorities, and the rainbow compresses itself until there are only blues, then only dark blues, and, at some point you can't detect, it becomes black.

Except, of course, in London! - where it becomes orange. Romantic...
