Peach Melba Skywatch

Sunday's sunset in Brisbane. It was one of those moments where my fella was doing the dishes and staring idly out of the window.. then he must have snapped out of his daydream as he noticed the sky and he was suddenly calling me. I was scrambling out the door trying to cram my feet into my shoes and shoving the battery that had been charging into the camera, hair all over the place and clothes completely disheveled. All this was of course of minor importance. My mind was set on getting to the corner so I could look west with an uninterrupted view and when I finally did, I was not disappointed. The colours were stunning in their saturation and their luminosity.

Check more fab skies out at Skywatch Friday and have a colourful and luminous weekend!

Stunning! I had to laugh about your comment regarding your clothes and hair. The majority of the time, I catch myself looking down to make sure I'm wearing pants! LOL!

Fantastic - it looks as if the clouds had baked in the sky. I love how you had to run out for the picture all helter skelter.

Im thinking more along the lines of a peach daiquiri.... :P

Karen said...

WOW... that sunset is stunning !!

Love the vivid colours. Unfortunately, we only get sunsets like that when there are wildfires burning nearby..

You sound just like me ... the neighbours are getting used to me wandering around outside in my pyjamas or some other disheveled state, snapping photos..

I'm originally from New Zealand ...so it must be something to do with us downunder types... :-)
