Unexpected sunset [SWF]

@ mirandablue
It was a rainy weekend and the horizon was grey and gloomy on Sunday afternoon.  I wanted to go out for a run but the intermittent rain discouraged me.  By late afternoon, I was hanging out at the roof deck taking photos of tiny wildflowers growing on some planters when I noticed the light changed.  When I looked up, I was delighted to see this vibrant sunset sky a little after 7 o'clock.

The vibrant amber sky is magnificent. And that silhouette of water tower (?) adds a very nice element to the whole picture.

some people think that if you admire sunset, you're most likely a pessimist.
