Hi from a cold November in USA,

You sneaky girl. You've been taking some beautiful shots, Sue! This set is exquisite. That golden sky is just amazing. Very nice work!

I like the moment, right after the sun disappears behind the mountains, when the light is so warm, so different from the morning light, which can be also very beautiful, indeed.

A Y* for this beautiful moment, Sue!

Hello from Wolf;°)

This is just beautiful, you have such a good eye. Where do you find these gorgeous sunsets?! A Y*.

Thanks, Jean, not1word, wolf and essence _artwork, I am so happy to see all your lovely comments, thank you all so very much!

I seem to quite by accident spend a lot of time in the evenings, facing West, both if at home, or the places I have to wait for the kids to do their 'after school' stuff, so I have a good view of the sky every evening and never leave home without my camera.

The other day, I saw a beautiful sky just as I was waiting at the front of a queue of traffic, nose of the van pointing at the sky, on a steep incline at the traffic lights and I got my camera out and stuck it out of the window, as you could even see the sunset under the passing vehicles, it would have been such a 'different' sunset shot, but as I focussed the camera and had it all lined up, and said to Maggie who was my front seat passenger, "tell me when the lights go green, Maggie!" they changed, I said a rude word, I wobbled, as I pressed the button, I had to accelerate away and the moment was lost forever! The road won't be that steep in that spot for much longer, as it's the site of major roadworks, and we were driving on the unfinished section of road, which will be built up to decrease the gradient. Darn it!!

Thanks again for stopping by and taking the time to leave your messages, - they make me VERY HAPPY!! :D

Cheers Sue

Sue Allen on November 27, 2008

Well the proof's in the skyline, as that's my own beloved Glastonbury mountain you see to the right hand side of the shot, so ha ha, no poaching from this side of the continent..besides it's so beautiful over here, I wouldn't need to!.. :D:D:D

Best wishes to you in flat sandy WA,

Thank you so much, Roger, I just had a look at some of the beautiful photos in your gallery, but will have to come back later, as I have to share this computer with the family now they're off school. Darn it, I'd forgotten about that!:D

I hope you're enjoying that snow. I did used to love the way it spread a blanket of silence over everything, on the rare occasion we had any snow in the UK. I remember looking out of my window late at night, when I was little, and the intense joy at seeing the first heavy flakes swirling, and drifting around the light from the street lamp. I would go to sleep with such expectations for the next day, but it wasn't often I would wake up to a magical world, where the rough holly leaves of the trimmed hedge would be carpeted in smooth, silent whiteness! Enjoy it, but keep the cold, thank you very much!

Very best wishes to you, Sue

Thanks very much for lovely message, vterezia I couldn't have done anything wrong with the sky on this particular evening, it was very kind to me and not too bright.

Very best wishes to you and thanks again for taking the time to leave your comment, it's much appreciated!

Sue Allen on April 20, 2010

You are most welcome, David, and thank you so much for the yellow *. I am honoured and am very sorry to have only just discovered it! You can only guess at the mess my account is in, with unanswered comments -- that stitch in time saves nine proverb is ringing in my ears at this very minute!

Very best wishes to you, and thank you so much for your visit,
