Sunset In My Neighbourd

Over the quarry

Some time ago I noticed a huge ball of flaming red and I realised if I went to the end of the street, turned right then left and left again at the end of the street I could see the sunset. There's a disused quarry in the foreground.

Red velvet sunset
Serenades earth and sky
An opera in red

Ribbons of color
Harmonize across sky
Red velvet sunset

Ah, what an amazing sight! And you were able to catch it! There have been times I have "lost" the perfect sunset while hunting for my camera. Or my batteries die. Most frustrating. :)

Now it's time for bed.
