Sunset In May
Last week, Elephant's Child - a lovely blogger from Australia - posted among her Sunday Selections a few photos of a recent sunset (if it was a sunrise, please correct me, EC), and the colours in her photos reminded me of a shot of mine, also taken recently.
If you haven't yet seen EC's photos and would like to do so, go here and scroll to the last three photos to have a peek. And take your time scrolling because the rest of those photos are worth lingering over too. EC has pictures of magical-looking birds and unfamiliar (to me) plants of all kinds.
And here is the photo I took at nearly the same time as hers was taken, but on the opposite side of the world, and in the opposite season (it's fall in Australia and spring in North America):
I was so pleased that the image was true to the real colours of the sky that evening. That's not always the case. I love this shot, partly because of the colours - two of my favourites - but also because of the still-bare trees silhouetted against the sky.
Thank you, Elephant's Child, for the inspiration for today's post, and for all the beauty and comfort I find on your blog.
Wishing you all a weekend with beauty and comfort in it.
