We had another stunning winter sunset in Sydney today, the near-cloudless sky darkening from clearest blue to a band of glowing orange along the western horizon, below a darkening blue above. Today had the added bonus of not only the planet Venus, but also a crescent moon.
And if you’re wondering — those small black smudges in the photos are not marks on my lens, or flies. They’re flying foxes (out of focus!) which at sunset stream east in their thousands. I often wonder where they’re going, because east very soon becomes vast ocean!
No dramatic glowing clouds for today’s sunset, but a cloudless blue sky fading to deepest orange — and the moon, “waxing crescent”, hanging low in the west.
The palm fronds are spiky seen against this sunset in Harlingen, Texas.
March’s square theme is Spiky Squares (spiky, jagged, pointy, bristly, serrated, prickly, spiny, and/or barbed)
The Pinnacles Desert is 190km (120miles) north of Perth in Western Australia. The pinnacles themselves are ancient limestone pillars. At sunset, some of the taller ones form jagged shapes on the horizon.
