Meandering with camera…
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
― Dylan Thomas, In Country Sleep, and Other Poems
Another beauty. I was reading sometime ago Gunta that the very red sunset pictures painted by Turner in the 19th century were the direct result of the eruption of the Krakatoa volcano which spewed dust and ash high into the atmosphere affecting the sunsets for years to come. Apparently sunlight scattered by airborne particles in the air appears more red than green so the redder the sunset, the dirtier the skies. The wildfires are clearly having a real affect.
For us it depends on the direction of the wind since the nearest fire is some 100 miles away, but there’s enough smoke all over the west to reach us when the wind shifts in our direction.
Love this one too Gunta
Thanks, D. 😉
It has always amazed me what beautiful sunsets arise from the destruction of fires. Wonderful shot Gunta! 🙂
Thanks, LuAnn. I’ve had a wildfire a lot closer when we lived in Utah, where we could actually see the flames. Then our previous house was across the street from a tree farm and they’d do the slash burning after a clear cut. That gets downright spooky with the sun turning orange in midday.
Whether it’s from the fires or the weather, it is beautiful!
Almost insanely so. Thanks!! 🙂
oh my goodness, Gunta. Another one of your brilliant sunsets – I envy you. And “oopsjohn’s” remark re a poss. David Lunch movie is just how I felt too, but, having said that, at the same time (with diff. eyes!?) it looks so serene and then you quoted Dylan Thomas – I could not get better. Hugs Carina 🙂
Thanks, seems this one took you all over the map. Nice to hear you enjoyed it.
That’s a sky out of a David Lynch movie – add some haunting music and you just know something’s wrong somewhere close by!
Hmmm… have to admit I had to google David Lynch only to realize I’ve never seen any of his. It seems I’m falling behind the times. But I’ll go with the haunting spooky bit…. 😉
I was actually thinking more of his television series “Twin Peaks” years ago.
Missed that one, too. Have only had TV for bits off and on. Get disgusted with it pretty quick.
and so pretty…what a lovely sky….and it has waves beneath it, too. 🙂
yeah, like you’d think that pretty color would be quite enough, but then they went and added waves, too…. almost excessive! 😉
Such superfluity…. I hope they don’t use it all up at once…. 😉
Beautiful shot….just the right amount of clouds. I really do need to visit the ocean 🙂
I couldn’t stand to be away from the ocean for very long. I wonder if it shows?
This is an amazing shot.
Thank you for the lovely comment.
Beautiful sky Gunta, and those big rocks make your pic just perfect. Very apt quote too. 🙂
I just know that someday you’ll come see it for yourself. 🙂
Beautiful colors! Love the birds feeding one last time before night.
Sometimes I think the gulls just line up to watch the sunset.
Beautiful. I know and miss that coastline. Thank you!
I can’t imagine living anywhere else. My pleasure!
The beach in one of it’s many, many moods indeed.
