The Setting Sun...


These past few days I have been too busy to spend much time in front of my computer, or to visit my favourite blogs. Tonight, here in Vancouver there is a spectacular sunset which I thought I would share with you, should you happen to pop by my blog for a visit.  Between now and May, Vancouver will have some of the most beautiful sunsets -- like paintings by John Constable or J.M.W. Turner.  There is something about this time of the year that produces wonderful colours in the western sky.  And, if you squint your eyes ever so slightly, you can see Vancouver Island in the distance.

Have a wonderful evening, everyone...

Jo, that's extraordinary. I took a nearly identical shot of a sunrise in Weldon Spring last year! What makes the ribbons of gold appear?

I find it magical...thank you for sharing!

Oh, and I LOVE Constable and Turner, too.
