Gold-Dust On Silver Waters.......







Last night the sun crept slowly towards the horizon
not with its usual fanfare of vibrant colours
but hiding her face behind the dark murky clouds
while gently shaking out fine ribbons of gold-dust
to glisten across silver waters.

It was one of the few occasions I had specifically
driven to the sea-side to capture a spekky sunset
but it wasn't one of those nights -  it was very subdued
but in its own way quite beautiful

A marvellous result of your patience, perseverance and persistence Dianne. Although it doesn't have the colours you were hoping for, still it is an exceptionally beautiful take and worthy of hanging on any wall!

You know, Dianne, just between you and me, I see so many fancy sunsets on the CDP blogs -- but with no objects of interest beyond the colorful sky -- that I almost yawn. BUT, this one is quiet and reflective and special. You have perfect light and a perfect image. The sound you hear is my applauding.

Dianne said...
