Red sun sets


Thursday nights sun set was amazing, I stood outside mesmerised at how it just kept getting redder as it got lower to the horizon. There was no colour in the sky, it was all in the sun.

The day had a yellowy tinge to it as smoke from fires in Victoria made its way into South Australia. Apparently that is why we had a weird sun set. It was cool to watch.

Cockys in our trees, regular visitors in Summer. Front row seats for the sunset.
The birds seemed to be singing louder, and all the crickets and bugs were chirping at full noise too. It was one of those iconic balmy australian summer nights.

    1. It was amazing to watch, doesn't happen very often so I was glad I noticed it. Some people had no idea when I mentioned it the next day!

  6. Just gorgeous, though kinda sad that we only get red sunsets like this when somewhere else is experiencing the heartache of bushfires ...

  7. Oh, I feel I was right there with you! I really love these photos. The trees look so alive against the sky. And I'm dreaming of the sound of those crickets.
