Vernal Evening Sky.

As the month of March moves into April, the evening sky outside my windows offers a gallery of natural works of art, unlike any other made by man. While the sun ever so slowly sets over the western horizon, I have the privilege to see it vanish in the most glorious way ever imaginable.

Spring and autumn sunsets are my favourite by far. Even though there is nothing like the fiery midnight skies during Midsummer, when the white nights rule the North, the vernal sunsets are enchanting in vision and light. Whether the sky is dramatic, covered by dark clouds, or artistic, painted by strokes of colourful water vapor, or whether it is pristine and clear - the shows taking place outside my windows are spectacular every time.

Below a selection of the sunsets I have been lucky enough to witness over the course of the past few weeks.

Danish evening skies, they hold a special kind of magic. You captured them beautifully.

A robust sunset just before twilight reminds me of a time when TV stations would sign off for the day. It’s like nature saying; “I hope you enjoyed the show I put on for you today.” Your photographs do justice to the ever-changing displays we're privileged to view every night.

Beautiful skies...especially the one with the clouds in the lower right. Thanks for the loveliest of comments yesterday. I knew I would do this one of these days. I reviewed three very nice comments (yours included) and hit the "publish" button and stared at the screen that said I "rejected" the comments. I couldn't believe I clicked on the wrong button. But I did. I guess I should be surprised it didn't happen sooner. So if you don't see your comment from yesterday that's why. Hopefully I will do better today. The birds are singing as I type this. I'm hearing them through the fireplace so I hope that doesn't mean they built a nest there. Have a wonderful day Zuzana.

Hugs,

Hi Zuzu,
My Father-in-law has been in Copenhagen for the last week to bury his mother. I wrote a tribute to her for Sepia Saturday, last week.
Those are magnificent skies.

Your blog is always filled with such gorgeous photos.

Hope you are well,

Kat

...and I thought my sunset captures were OK. These are simply gorgeous Zuzana! Beautiful. Here in the city, one can't always capture a good sunset (though I have a couple of photos), but those by the ocean, in the Pacific coast, are marvelous. Looks like summer will slowly start its way to you!
have a lovely day!
*hugs*

Beautiful photos. I'm wondering what your sunset will look like tonight with all the volcanic ash in the air.

sprinkles said...

I really need to get out at night and check out some of the sunsets here! I'm pretty sure they aren't nearly as beautiful as yours are but I'll never know if I don't look for them.

I love the new picture you posted of yourself!

Cottage Garden said...

Your sunset pictures are sublime Zuzana - your photos capture every little nuance and they are all so different! Such special skies you have there in Denmark.

Thank you for your comment at mine today dear friend ... oh yes I do wonder what the sunset is like from the White House on the hill this evening with all this volcanic ash in the atmosphere!

Your name felt right at home and I wasn't that much wrong. Just on the other side of Tatra mountains.
