Just Sharing Last Night's Sunset with You

I took a short walk to the mailbox last night to pick up the mail. I had a magazine and a package to carry back home, but I had my camera bag strapped on my arm just in case. I could not resist taking a slight detour to another block to get a view of the setting sun. It no longer goes down between the two trees across from my house the way it did in summer, so my sky shots aren't quite the same as they used to be. We haven't had as many clouds lately, either, so the sunsets weren't as interesting. But last night we had a few, so I decided to take the photo I'm sharing here. I put my mail down on the street every time I took a photo. Not ideal, but it worked. Have you noticed any change in the position of the sun in the sky since the change of season? Are your sunsets interesting this week because of cloud formations? How often do you make a point of observing the sunset? I consider a sunset a free gift of beauty from God. Everyone gets to see it who can get outdoors, regardless of race, gender, financial position, or nationality.

This is a lovely photo. Clouds often make for a more spectacular sunset. We found it strange when we were travelling in the northern hemisphere to have the sun following a different path to what we were used to in the southern hemisphere. We could never work out where to park our motor-home so that we'd be in the shade at a certain time.

It is a beautiful sunset. I admit I haven't paid attention to them, though I have seen some great dawns when coming home from the Y in the morning. Right now it's still too dark for dawn, so yes, I have seen a change in the position of the sun. It is definitely a free gift from God. Your picture is beautiful.
