This Moment - 6WS - SIMC - Sunset


Miserable, wet day ends in joy


The day started wet, cold, windy and miserable. Can you believe it, I still went market shopping in that weather.

Then the day started to get a bit better and as I sat in my lounge and looked out of my window I was greeted with the view of a very different sunset.

There were thick dark clouds behind the hills and outlined was the setting sun, as if an artist had brushed a line over the clouds.

I love sunsets. And a unique or spectacular one amazes me each time and makes me feel joyful.

Here is that moment. Not quite well captured in the pic, but I hope you get the idea.




This is the moment 
This is the time 
When the momentum and the moment
Are in rhyme
Give me this moment 
This momentous moment ..
(from Jekyll and Hyde)

A moment I want to pause, savour and remember

    1. They sure can Katrina, though the sunsets I've seen have been a tad more spectacular than the sunrises.
