Red sky at night shepherd’s delight…(and mine)

Red light

It’s a beautiful sunset; another beautiful day. This must be what Californians feel like. I wonder how long it takes before it gets boring to see the sun everyday. And is it possible to have too much vitamin D? I’ll wait and see.

    A little known fact: we here in Colorado have lots of beautiful sunsets … most people assume one needs to be near water to get a pretty sunset, but, here at the base of the Rocky Mountains, we have more than our fair share of stunning sunsets.

    I tell you this, in order to answer your question — I’ve lived here all my life, and seen many, many, many beautiful red, pink, orange sunsets, and, I never get tired of them.

      I don’t think I would either. I imagine Colorado has fabulous landscapes too.

    May those red skies in the evening keep on coming. Impossible to have enough of them.

      Oh, I agree. I was reflecting on last year and it’s difficult to imagine the difference. This time last year we had had so much rain the ground couldn’t absorb any more and we lived under constant grey skies. What a difference. Nature needs this to recover (and we do too).

    And west australians…although we live in sydney we go back to perth a lot. sunsets are more magical to me than the other end of the day 🙂

    Beautiful and NEVER boring. Interesting how expressions vary from place to place. I grew up hearing “red sky in morning SAILOR take warning.” ….and I don’t live by a seaside, but in the Midwest U.S.

      Thank you. The saying in the UK is very similar. We say ‘red sky at night shepherd’s delight, red sky in the morning shepherd’s warning’ and it is usually not far off.

    Just bootiful – as my uncle in Essex says. We live in central New South Wales and the sunsets are far more spectacular in colour the further inland you go – I think because of dust / smoke. When I lived on the coast, it was more pastel colours. Thanks for sharing what you see.

      NSW sounds very exciting and different. I hope to see Australia one day. I would so enjoy the opportunities for photography.
