    I've just emailed you a repaired version of that last one. But I don't think there is really too much stuff in the foreground. It does not intrude into the main part of the picture, i.e. the misty scene but, if anything, it frames it.

      I haven't noticed any really nice sunsets here in Singapore lately. This is the nearest to one:




      Ivy will be happy to know that the "scary plant" has be cut down. It became too dangerous due to the large leaves it kept on dropping.

        There, and I was just training myself to love it! Your sunsets just won't be the same without that looming over them.

          At the moment the sun is setting in a NNW direction from my viewpoint. As the sun is now moving south the "scary plant" would have been more prominent at sunset pictures, at least until equinox. After that the sun will be setting more in a WSW direction and it would have been a feature at the right hand edge of any sunset picture.

          Actually, the difference in azimuth of the sunsets from when the sun is at the Tropic of Cancer until it reaches the Tropic of Capricorn is all of 47 degrees as seen from any place on the planet. At equator it sets exactly in the west at equinox and at 23.5 degrees north or south bearing at solstice.

        Extreme weather in the north create extreme sunsets in the east of Norway: http://www.vg.no/protokoll/ekstremva...e-skyene/1919/

          Another hectic sunset-view from the study window. I use Paint to take out the phone wire but otherwise that's how it was. The timing is just right for a week or so now for me to have a good sight of any colourful sunset - although I know there have been some good ones over to the right out of view.

            Sunset in Taizhou, China a few days ago.
            I don't know why that damned Containership had to choose this time to leave the drydock anyhow:

            Could it have something to do with high tide maybe?

            There, that is better. A near Pakarang:


            And thare she goes, at 1702 hrs.:


            Taizhou is just about as far east as you can get in Mainland China, hence the early sunset. (Time zone based on Bejing, much further west)

              Sunrise in Aalesund 16.12.2015 was a long drawn affair.
              First light at 0850 hrs.:


              A bit brighter by 0935 hrs.:















              Kind of daylight by 1000 hrs.:


              At 1115 hrs. the sun is ready to show itself above the hills:


              It's not every day there is any determinable sunrise worth the name, however.
              Same scenario at 1000 hrs. 18.12.2015:

                Welcome "home" to Norway, ombugge... a bit chillier here than Singapore I guess?

                  Thanks. Yes chillier than Singapore but not exactly a "winter wonder land" at this night time temperature:

                      The orange sunrise today was noticed by many: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/2015/12/28...e-11968608.ece
                      Incl. me. Panorama at 0930 hrs.:


                      Same time directly into the sunrise:


                      Same 15 min. later:




                      At 1040 hrs. it is climbing the hills for a short while:

                        Do you have a similar saying to ours:
                        Red sky at night, shepherds' delight
                        Red sky in the morning, shepherds' warning.

                        Not perhaps in Singapore as I doubt there is room for any sheep, let alone such an anachronism as a shepherd!

                        The sunrise this morning was purple:




                        Don't know what that signifies to the shepherds??

                          The last day of 2015 opened blue in Aalesund:




                          And warm (relatively):

                            The first day of 2016 opened gray and cool in Aalesund:

                            Now Master Frost is expected to take the scene.
