Sky-Watch Friday: sunset and twilight

One of the joys of being outside rather than vegetating on the couch is the sight of this lovely sunset. My Sunday afternoon routine of running/walking has been rewarding, not only because of the health benefits but because I love this time of day...sunset then twilight.

Photos were taken at the officers' club oval track last Sunday.


Twilight: A time of pause when nature changes her guard. All living things would fade and die from too much light or too much dark, if twilight were not.

Oh wow, these are stunning! Especially the first one - my favourite. Yes, I would agree, they certainly do add to the advantages of a running schedule!

I hardly get to enjoy sunsets or sunrises in person so I am always thankful for players like you who shares them with me.

What gorgeous shots! I couldn't agree more with finding beauty while walking/running. Some of my favorite views have happened during those times!

Miranda-
Your first shot is INCREDIBLE! It looks like something you'd see on an ad for a travel agent or airline. It is very, very nice. Sorry I don't mean to gush but the composition and the colors are perfectly done. Very nicely done!
