Sunset in the City

As I looked outside the window last night, the setting sun caught my eye.

Shades of pink covered the evening sky and lights twinkled from streetlights. It was a beautiful sight to behold.

A few hours later, all light had disappeared and the night took over. Light shone from windows, cars and streetlights.

As nighttime descended, the pace of the city slowed down. But as one knows, a city never sleeps. However I do, and I enjoyed a good night’s rest.

Do you often manage to see the sun setting?

  1. Sunsets are my favorite time of the day, especially where I live now.

    Your photos are wonderful; I agree with the “cotton candy clouds” description that Carol wrote!


    1. Sometimes I do wish to be living in a place where the buildings don’t hide the setting sun. But then when I am out of the city, I do appreciate it more 🙂


  2. Your twilight pics Colline, remind me of my nights overlooking beautiful Santiago Chile, the setting sun with the snow capped Andes as a backdrop.
    Theirs something beautiful watching the aura of a city closing down for the night.
