Sunsets (after Turner)

Over the weekend, there was a delightful pink sunset forming over a nice set of cloud, over the ridge to the south-west from my house.For some reason, this set of clouds and the late afternoon sun combined to present some glorious views.I think Mr Turner, in grimy London, with his sunset skies brought to life by the volcanic eruptions in far away Dutch East Indies (Indonesia), would have liked to share my enjoyment of the more commonplace sunsets of Robertson.

Its all in the clarity of light we get here, I think.
No wonder the hills of Robertson are populated by artists.

Bugs and such like are interesting - but those sunsets are magnificent!

Thanks Mick,
I know bugs are not everyone's taste.
So when that sunset came along, I thought someone might like it.
So there you are.

Interesting that you can see distant showers. Sunsets and rain showers don't usually go together around here.

Hi Mosura
I had hardly noticed the rain showers, but they are very common here.
Little bits of rain get squeezed out of any decent cloud as the clouds get lifted over the hills.
