That sinking feeling.

One positive from the dust and smoke filling our skies and lungs has been beautiful sunsets.  As the sun sinks below the horizon it is reflected off the dirt and ash that we hate and give us a stunning sunset to enjoy for a few fleeting minutes.  I guess I can handle a few more days of this yuckiness.

I did get some where you can see the full circle of the sun but this one showed to colours of the sky much better and I like the way the trees silhouette in this.  I tried to take some yesterday but I had fiddled with the camera's settings and hadn't put them back and didn't check what I was doing and by the time I noticed it was too late, the sun was just a little glow.  Thankfully mum sent me a text this afternoon letting me know that another beautiful sunset was on it's way so I left my crepe burning in the pan as I ran outside to shoot that sinking sun!


I got a worried little call from my sweet little Dragon yesterday

"Uh, Mum, the fridge has closed on me"

Actually it was "Uh, Mum, the ridge has blosed on me" but I figured out what he meant and went and rescued him... after I took a photo!


  1. I just figured "logs" was another Australian word, lol! Beautiful picture and the one with Dragon in it is adorable, lol!

  2. Here's to more beautiful sunsets.
    Dragon's predicament did make me smile. What a sweet heart.

  3. I just LOVE that taking pics of sunsets runs in your family :)
    I always know I can count on you to show me a beautiful skyline;)

  4. What a beautiful picture! Shame the fridge got so hungry!

  5. Typically blog mommy - first take the picture, then rescue the child. So exactly what I would have done.

  6. Great photos! My kids have done the same thing! Too funny!

  7. Have you seen the ad where the people get stuck on the escalator because the power goes out?
    That's what that picture reminds me of.

  8. A true blogging mom photographs first, rescues second. ;)


I'd love to hear from you, even if it's just to say "Hi, I stopped by for a read today"
