A sunny day at Parkgate ended with an interesting, rather than spectacular, sunset over the marshes and reedbeds. Sand was in the air blowing up from the Sahara, so the cloud patterns were unusually striking.
The sun slips down behind the hills of Clwyd.
Sun gone, but effects remain.
These spectacular clouds took over the sky over Tatton Park towards sundown yesterday. Apparently, they are called
The pleasant scene with the sun behind the camera becomes spectacular, when shooting into the sun a few minutes later.
The last hurrah of a sunny afternoon on Knutsford’s Small Heath, the sun dropping towards the horizon.
A sky to raise the spirits, before hunkering down to a freezing night.
Two different framings; each has its merit.
Regular readers will be aware of my penchant for spectacular sunsets. How about this one over the fields at Neufchatel en Bray in September.
Move in closer and it keeps on giving.
Sometimes a photograph comes out just right. For me, this is one of them.
Taken from the beach at Barmouth, Wales, with the sun setting to the right. Just around the headland is the next seaside resort to the south, Tywyn.
Serenaded by blackbirds on a country walk, coming up to sundown. The pattern of clouds in the luminescent sky, or archipelagoes out to sea?
Silhouettes of the living intricate skeletons of trees, soon to be bedecked with thousands of leaves.
Shot just to the left of the declining sun.
Once I was taught to write proper sentences.

A rather cloudy afternoon turned out quite nicely as the sun began to descend below the surrounding hills mid-afternoon. The effect on the calmish surface of the
Errwood Reservoir was quite striking.
The reservoir is in the scenic Goyt Valley, near the Derbyshire-Cheshire border.
Sun going down over the sea in North Devon, after a bit of a cloudy day. It starts like this.
And then the magic happens.
Every evening, a different show.
