Welcome the ‘Sky Painter’  #1

There have been so many wonderful ‘sky at night’ recently that I couldn’t help taking one or two (hundred) photos, including some from a hike up the hill! So from today I will be showing a week of summer sunsets. I hope they delight you as much as they have delighted me.

    Those western skies are delightful indeed, Jude.
    This one’s gorgeous. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      Mid June they were pretty spectacular. Less so this last week, but still a pretty peachy glow in the sky.

  2. Oh, the colours are splendid! And the inclusion of the nettles and hogweed is a very nice touch!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Hard not to get the hedgerow in as it is so high at the moment! But I did like the silhouette.

  3. Stunning colors!

    We were staying over at Praa Sands last week and had some fab sunsets over Mounts Bay too!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Praa Sands is a lovely beach.

    Beautiful picture! I never knew that that was called Hogweed until now.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Very similar to Cow Parsley, but tougher leaves.

    It’s a perfectly composed photo, Jude.

  7. I’m wrongly situated for sunsets, so I relish yours. I can’t the colours, and silhouettes are always a bonus.

    1. Heyjude says:

      That’s my excuse for sunrises, though tbh I could go up the hill and see one.

    That is stunning it makes me want to get my paints out

    1. Heyjude says:

      Don’t let me stop you!
      😀 😀

    This first one is very lovely, Jude. A replacement for roofs? 🙂 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Had a week of sunsets in mind after we had several stunning ones in a row, but yes, a good substitute.
