Welcome the ‘Sky Painter’ #7

The last image this week (but probably not the last sunset you will see on here) is of St Michael’s Mount in tranquil Mount’s Bay.

Standing on the top of the hill with the sky lighting up all around is a very strange feeling. To the west, gold, orange, streaks of red, green and aquamarine. The rest of the sky has a diffused pink glow, clouds and jet trails catching the colour. A waxing gibbous moon grows brighter as the sun sinks deeper below the horizon. I wonder what our ancestors from the Neolithic Age thought of this spectacular light show.

    The thing I love about sunsets is how many different ways they can be beautiful. You’ve captured a very special one here

  2. The sky is so Big! Thanks for this series – it’s been such a treat to see all those sunsets.

      Glad you enjoyed it Elaine. I hope there will be more to come, but at the moment we just get the golden glow followed by a peachy pink. No streaks 🙂

    Another beautiful sunset. A lovely series of shots.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Back to plain old golden light and rosy glow now. I wonder why we get those amazing streaks some times? There has to be a scientific explanation – air temperature maybe?

      1. Lignum Draco says:

        That level of knowledge is beyond my skill set. 🙂

          Heehee… mine too 😀

    I love the soft pastels in your landscape, Jude, along with the sliver of land at the base. The mood is lovely.
