At the going down of the sun

Here in Ireland we are fortunate to have some pretty spectacular and dramatic skies as the sun sets. Living in the country as I do, I enjoy big skies and all the drama they bring. Every cloud does have a silver lining, adding to the spectacle if a few (and not too many!) around at sunset. On a recent trip to the Australian countryside, visiting my family who have become part of the Irish diaspora, I saw this beautiful sunset, just as a bank of cloud was moving in from the north-west. This particular sun was setting over the Indian Ocean, about 12 kilometres away, which probably added to the colours. So for my first post of 2015, I am delighted to share these images, and with them come good wishes to all my readers for a happy and contented 2015. Thank you for your support which is very much appreciated!
