rhythmaning: (sunset)
The first couple of weeks in February saw several spectacular sunsets. This wasn't the most dramatic (in which the sky looked as if it was on fire, and has been well documented, though not by me!), but it was the one I was able to photograph.

Greenwich

Once I got there, I was impressed by Greenwich. I went often as a child, but only once in adult memory, a couple a years ago when I was exploring Canary Wharf and took the tunnel under the Thames; I didn't really look around much.

This time, Cutty Sark was back, and I looked around many of the grand Wren-designs on the way to the Royal Maritime Museum, where the Ansel Adams show was on. (When we were children, my brother and I spent many afternoons looking at the large model boats they have - or at least, I had - I didn't look much around the museum, though I was impressed with its architecture, both classical and modern.)

The painted hall and the chapel were stunning.

As I was leaving to find the station, I saw the start of a beautiful sunset. So I stayed on, wandering around, looking at the effect of the sky on the buildings.

The Islay sky was majestic, cloud-filled and impressive.

Then the sun shone.

A walk on Christmas Eve gave rise to a glorious sunset.

I took a great number of sunset and sunrise photographs around the turn of the year: a Christmas Eve walk produced a surprisingly colourful sunset, and two different sunrises just into the New Year were similarly beautiful. Then there was also the Hoover Building - a third January sunrise.

A friend asked why I was suddenly taking so many sunsets and sunrises; basically, it is because I can: they are more accessible at this time of year. For much of the year, to be honest, I can't be arsed with sunrise - you simply have to get up too early.

Also, though, there were some beautiful skies: the low winter sun passing through misty winter mornings produces some beautiful shades.

These photos have been on flickr for a while, and links were posted on Facebook, but I wanted to set them up here, too - these sets, curated, look a little different.

They'll follow in the next three posts...

Walking home yesterday evening was a lovely sunset; I noticed it first reflected in a new development:

Moonrise

Last week, I was walking to a meeting in Edinburgh at about 6pm and I noticed the Moon rising over the Old Town. I had my pocket camera with, and I took a long detour trying to find good pictures.

Pictures in poor light aren't easy with my little camera (as opposed to my SLR), and these took a bit a work...

The day after the memorial celebration [livejournal.com profile] frankie_ecap and I spent wandering around Oxford. She had been staying with [livejournal.com profile] white_hart and I met them in Broad Street, being dragged down the road until I saw one of Anthony Gormley’s sculptures balanced precariously on the corner of the roof of Blackwell’s art shop. Although not one of his series Event Horizon, it could have been: a human figure perched on the roof. It is very disturbing – a figure, silhouetted, stock still, almost as if waiting to fall. It is unnerving.

In December, I clearly caught the sunset bug. And the sunrise bug too. (This was just before I caught the cold bug.)

The weather in Edinburgh was good, so one evening I thought I should climb Salisbury Crags to catch the sunset. I almost missed it. It was gorgeous – although there were no clouds, so it wasn’t particularly spectacular.

New Year’s Day was a beautiful day: crystal blue skies. I finally stirred myself and went for a walk in the afternoon, where just after lunch suddenly becomes sunset, the afternoons being short this time of year.

So I saw my first sunset of the year. (But no otters.)

It was a good weekend for sunsets. I watched the sun go down behind Carradale from the jetty at Claonaig.
