I couldn’t let the sunsets of this week wait until the sequence of scheduled shots that are due to appear on this blog over the next few weeks have finished, so please excuse this exceptional blog post of images with exceptional colours.
The first image was taken on Tuesday evening after Jenny phoned me and said “you must get out and take a photo”, why I hadn’t noticed what was happening, I can’t remember, but after taking a few in the street – which didn’t give the sunset any prominence, I went up to the loft and somehow managed to get my head and camera out the Velux window to capture this handheld.

I was better prepared for a repeat performance on Wednesday evening and went up on to Caerphilly Mountain to capture the image above. The sunset wasn’t perhaps as spectacular, and I may have packed-up the gear 5mins too soon, but it’s still rather a good shot I think.
