Tonight’s winter sunset.
Well let’s hope that we get a winter, though I do not mind the weather we have had. As that mean more riding my bike, just been beautiful and mild as of late. But I do miss a spot of snow, just about 2-3′ that hang around for a few weeks – five, six maybe eight or nine – and get topped up with a good old snow storm every now and again.
Not a bad sunset tonight and it didn’t turn out bad either for a phone snap.

It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated from Celtic harvest festivals which may have pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain, and that this festival was Christianized as Halloween. Some academics, however, support the view that Halloween began independently as a solely Christian holiday.
Yesterday’s sunset on a harvest moon, sadly it clouded over so I didn’t get a snap of the moon.
See I told you brilliant sunsets from Corncrake Cottage over Uig Bay on Isle of Lewis.
I just found this in my photos, totally forgot about it. It was taken back in Feb. as we drove home over the moors. Stunning and colourful sunset of Pendle Hill.
Brilliant sun set and moon rise, a few months back, over Uig Bay on Isle of Lewis.
Few weeks back we saw this dramatic sunset over Dunbar between/under the rain clouds.
The main land is on fire let’s all stay on Isle of Wight 🙂
No matter where I end up I always hope for a good sunset to end the day with, yesterdays one didn’t fail.
Visited Isle of Wight – or as some call it “Ile de Blanc” – last week. While waiting for the sun to set I walked along the beach at Colwell and Totland Bay.
Brilliant sunset tonight, truly enjoyed it while driving home and had to stop to snap this.
But it was utterly destroyed by fly tipping. We live in one of the most beautiful/stunning/wonderful areas in the UK, heck the world, right on the door step of the brilliant Yorkshire Dales. I know that this parking lot is a known dogging spot. Hey, why not it is a great view to be doing a bit of “alfresco”, each to their own 🙂 Yet some right old numpty, I guess needed a bit of comfort, but couldn’t asked to – pack it in, pack it out!
I know the various councils run a tip/recycling centre where you can pretty much bring anything. Some councils will even come a take away you old banger, free of charge. So there is no excuse to do fly tipping.
I just can’t get my head around peoples minds, when they are OK with dumping their shit/garbage wherever they want. How can they live in and accept that the area/world they are living is, for the lack of a better word, a skip/landfill.
Come on people – clean up after yourself, it is not that hard!
Side note : Walk in “Skip”ton …
Today it was a mad day for weather and skies.
While out walking Tilley, it rained heavily, the clouds were shining orange and we had a massive double rainbow. I couldn’t get the phone out without soaking it or myself and hold still enough long enough, when I had a dog that soo needed to talk to the ducks on the canal. So you gotta believe me here 🙂
Seconds later the clouds cleared and blue skies appeared and a very fiery sunset was on display. Every second it changed as the sun sat and the clouds moved about. I was lucky to snap this one, since there was a post I could lean against and Tilley had no birds or other distractions that she had to look at.
Took this last night, from up near Pinhaw Beacon, as the sun was setting and breaking through the clouds. Just had to stop on the way home and watch. In the distance you can see Ingleborough (723m) an fell in the Yorkshire Dales.
Camped on the side of the road and watching the sun setting over the Tierra del Fuego. We are pretty much looking directly due south and the colours was very strong and vivid.
Never seen such a blue sunset before.
By the shores of Lake Wakatipu – on the south island of New Zealand as far as you can go past Queenstown all the way past Glenorchy, do remember to stop and enjoy this wonderful part of the world – we camped up and while we cooked our dinner a very nice man came up and told us not to dive into our tent, to get away from the sand flies, but stay up and enjoy the coming sunset. He had experienced a stunning sunset the previous night and the weather forecast was looking to be the same tonight. I could bore you with 20-30 photographs of the stunning sunset we experienced, at first we were thinking that we were out of luck as the clouds were drawing in thick and fast. But then the golden colours came out in force, hitting the different layers of clouds, just stunning and changing all the time.
Sailed across Lake Victoria in The Lakes National Park in Victoria Australia. Had our dinner on board and then enjoyed this beautiful sunset before we climbed into our bunk.
View from our flight from Portland to New Zealand. Sunset looking out over the Pacific Coast some somewhere over California.
We were at Harris Beach State Beach and went down to see the sunset. And we all agreed that getting the birds into the shot would make the shot.
Peli at Cape Lookout enjoying free camping, State Park Day, and a good sunset after two rather wet days in the saddle on the Oregon Coast.
We have just booked out tickets for our trip to the Pyrenees again this year. Lovely little spot in the world. As a reader of this blog you will have seen a few pictures for that night we spend camping at 2400 meters 🙂 But it was a brilliant evening and a stunning spot to do a bit of camping.
I was out and about in France taking some infra red photos. And noticed the very colour full sky and snapped a photo, forgetting that I still had my wratten and neutral density filter on. So the great red colour of the vapour train and clouds never showed up.
Though still I do really like the photo.
Nothing special though some great colours in tonight’s sunset over Wandsworth Bridge. The starlings were out in “dance” but as soon I picked up my camera they went into hiding. Camera-shy birds, who would have thought?
The picture was taken on our first pootle of the year, down past south Croydon, great but a hard ride.
