One Coconut Tree at Sunset

I normally take photos of this coconut tree at sunrise. I must have taken hundreds of photos of it over the years…against spectacular red skies or pink clouds…or lit by sunlight as the sun comes over the mountains…or in silhouette…sheltering doves or baldpates or on one occasion a very steely-eyed johncrow. But today I photographed the coconut tree, not as the sun was rising, but as it was setting…coconut tree 12-9-18

This meant that I was standing on my roof with my back to the setting sun…P1330295 coconut tree…seeing coconuts at various stages of development…P1330297 - coconut tree…some very small ones, just starting out….P1330298 - coconut treeAnd all the while, behind me, the sun continued to set…dig

The Sky One Evening

Yesterday evening I went up on the roof to watch the sun go down, something I often do. By the time I got there, the sun had already set, but the sky remembered!dig

Every sunset is different. Even the same sunset sky goes through many moods, vibrant shades of orange giving way to subtle shades of pink.Pink sky at sunset 2

Eventually all sign of the sun is gone, leaving the night to electric lights and Venus…P1310214 night lights
