Random Fridays: Currawong at sunset

Currawong on a TV antenna, against blazing clouds at sunset.

Currawongs are a type of black bird, similar in appearance to ravens and crows. At sunset in Sydney, their haunting calls herald the onset of night. You can listen to one here.

This is the same sunset featured in this photo.



In search of an angel

I spent last evening in a cemetery. An odd way to fill two hours after work on a Wednesday, I grant you. But it was a lovely summer evening, and I wanted to find a particular angel memorial. I thought I knew where it was. I was wrong, as it turned out! I didn’t find the memorial, and I ran out of daylight because I kept stopping to take photos. The dramatic sunset was an unexpected photographic bonus.
