It is most unusual for me to go from photo to post within less than about 4 days, but tonight is different because the darling Dafter has very courageously gone on the school trip with her new school! So let me show you this evening’s sunset, which looked to me like fish flying over the rooftops of Aberdeen. (Are these the same fish I saw on a winter morning last November?)
What I particularly loved about this moment was how there were little flecks of green on the edges of the clouds (for example, around the fishes’ tails – I haven’t been able to make this any clearer, sorry!). I once took a course on colour, and our teacher told us that often Nature provides complementary colours. She said that if you look at a sunset or sunrise sky, you will sometimes see a flash of green against the red – and so it was tonight. A few minutes later, and around to the left a bit:
I do love these long days, and it’s still more than five weeks until the solstice!
