It had not been the most inspiring of days.
It was nor dry but then it did not pour all day
It was not calm but neither was it blowing a gale.
The dominant colour for most of the day had been a dull grey.
Around 3:15pm a brief walk to the pier was in order.
Oh! It was real good to be out and enjoy some fresh air.
It was interesting to see a repair had been made to the recent storm damage.
There was a touch of colour to the west but little hint of what was about to come.
About 4:00pm the sky dramatically changed.
No need to go out – the view was of a chocolate sky.
It was hard to take in this change in the sky to the west.
Our west facing living-room window became a real point of interest.
It was getting difficult to stop saying, “Look!”
To the west and to the south the palette was amazing.
Every time you raised you eyes to look out it was getting more dramatic.
The sky was awash with colour.
Perhaps it is more accurate to say it was ablaze with colour.
Darkness was descending fast.
Cars now had their headlights switched on.
Yet, the sky to the west remained a sight for sore eyes.
Sheep were grazing close by our house.
Looking west I became aware the silhouette of a sheep.
I wonder did it pause from grazing to appreciate the sky above?
Who would of thought that we would of experienced such a sunset!
What a transformation – from grey to such a rich palette.
Breath Catching Beautiful.
