    • Kiki, do you ever get anything done in the evening if you have such glorious sunset views from your kitchen window?
      Looking back through the last few pages of sunset images by Yves, Tommi, Ombugge, Thijs and yourself it is sometimes breathtaking to see the beauty portrayed there. Thank you all for posting them.

        Something tells me it is nice living on Jersey.

        I bet the storms during winter could test your nerves though.

            • Strange how the sun has caught the lower, dark clouds yet those higher up have barely a tinge of colour.

                hi Ivy, My front window faces south over St Aubins Bay, the kitchen window faces north , I spend hours looking out from both windows. Pity the building are in the way. the moon was fantastic a few nights ago, should have gone out to take a photo, it was big and bright .

            • Some sunsets from Singapore this last month or so.

                  Low light makes this a bit grainy. They do this at times, but it is infrequent and the glow is not constant.

                    • It's really annoying when you upload something to Photobucket after their last update, the latest uploads are all spread out over the album!

                      Anyway, here are four sunset images taken from my place of work in June this year - and which I hope some of you may enjoy!

                      • No matter how many images of sunsets or sunrises one sees, there is always something to exclaim over when seeing new ones, like those above from Ombugge and Jan Olav.

                          I'm glad you took the extra trouble involved in looking these out, Jan-Olav, and, as well as the splendour of those dramatic sun rays, thank you especially for including that last image (which of course I remember from your CaptainsPixel). It stopped me in my tracks as I scrolled down and saw it once more. It stuck me again as being specially skillful to have captured the subtle rays of light against the dark hills from that bright band between the clouds. Most of all I realise I love the mood of a moment of calm and contemplation, and the colour purple.

                          I enjoyed this collection ombugge - so much to see in them, and the unusual glow from Jurong too.
                          The day and month of one struck a personal chord with me, for it was then at sunset very many decades ago that I began to set a different course in my life, and I have taken some quiet time to watch the sun set on that date every year since then. A sort of personal New Years Eve.
