Soft Sunset

St Ives Bay – Trencrom Hill on the left and Knills Memorial on the right

You never know what you’ll get when the sun sets. Driving home along the north Cornish coast there was a bright orange splash in the sky, but by the time we had parked up at Godrevy, the sun had long gone and the clouds clustered along the horizon so all we were left with was this rather pastel-coloured soft apricot sky. But I still like it.

    It always amazes me how quick it actually falls below the horizon.

  3. I hate missing a moment in time trying to find parking. Happens often here with whales surfacing, sunsets, rainbows, etc. And drive-by-shooting never quite gives you the result you were hoping for either 🙂

      We had no trouble parking once we got there, but had to wait until we’d rounded the headland to see anything. The sun goes down very quickly at this time of year.

      Must confess I totally misread the ‘drive-by-shooting’. 😉

      1. Lol. Sorry. It’s a phrase I coined when travelling Namibia with my family and the driver wanted to keep going and I wanted to photograph everything 😉

          haha… the OH often tries to take photos whilst I am driving and can’t pull over (often at my instruction) but dirty windscreens and stickers often get in the way!

let's have a conversation...
