thanks Rick for the sugary inspiration :) it is a long moment, but never long enough for me (my favourite time of day – well, apart from the similar time in the morning, with the light doing a similar thingy :) ) but I am too sleepy in the morning, and too in need of caffeine to appreciate the photographic light!

I’ll take that moment every day. Skyes are beautiful, calming, inspiring, I suppose I look at the sky because I dont have the ocean near by!

You have frozen the fleeting scene in words and picture!

I always want the time of the day to go on longer – have to be content with the words doing that colonialist :) thank you

Yep, that’s my kind of bliss!

note: fairy floss in Australia is spun sugar – cotton candy in the USA (and not sure what it is in the UK) :)

Lovely to feel that way about a time and a place, Gabrielle!

“Fairy floss skies” – love that. That is a sight for sore eyes after all those angry, threatening skies. Beautiful photo. (PS why is time “running out”?)
April 15, 2013 at 2:20 pm
thanks bb :) ‘time is running out’ – an existential thorn that pierces the skin of us all ;) unless one is a Time Lord, and oh Lordy I would love to be one of those.
