It's getting that time of year where (usually) we're blessed with brilliantly colourful sunrises and sunsets, at sensible times of the day as well!
Though I have to confess, so far this month, the weather hasn't leant that way, but here's some to start you off.
Sunset from the back garden
Sunrise on my way to work one morning
Sunrise on my way out somewhere for the day.
Sunset over the Dee estuary yesterday …
3 Marsh Harriers (1m + 2f) were displaying their skills to the admiring audience.
There had also been long-distance fly-by's from 2 Hen Harriers (1 ring-tail + 1 male), an SEO and a Kestrel, so a v. good bird of prey count.
That's a lovely photo Hazel
That's a lovely shot Hazel, I had to sit down before I opened the thread just in case you had got up before 10 am and managed a sunrise!!!
Here's a photo from my brother who lives in Australia (northern New South Wales)
Sunset around 8pm
Really lovely shot, Nigel - with the sun peeping behind the interesting shaped tree...
It's not that photogenic near my house, but it was worth a quick snap to show Thursday's sunrise with different layers and colours of cloud
Nice photo Alan
That's beautiful Alan
Nice selection Bob.
Sunrises and sunset are not all about yellows, reds and other fiery colours, blues and purples also play a part.
