Christmas Eve - a New Forest Sunset



It was late before we walked the dogs today. Last minute preparations for Christmas took up the daylight hours. We set off across the heath, just as the western sky began to lighten into the pinks and golds of a winter sunset.

The sequence of photographs shows snapshot seconds of the sky as the colours changed so quickly. A glorious ending to a mild, grey day.


















Wishing a very Happy Christmas to everyone who reads my blog and especially to Followers who leave comments and share their news and feelings. I know I`m not always good at replying to comments (I don`t know where the hours go every day) but I do appreciate your visits and I love making return journeys to your blogs across the world.

Hoping that this Christmas leads us out of an often difficult year, into a more peaceful world.

We always miss the sunsets as we only have one window looking out at them at the back of the house. We do sunrises instead!

Loved yours! Merry Christmas and wish I was there to say so in person.


All the best for 2012.

Our sunset was hidden by low grey clouds. We are getting pelted with little white pellets that are lying on the ground pretending to be snow. Just below freezing here at 3 am of an xmas morning. Hope everyone's holidays are filled with warm fuzzies and all the best goodies. (8>)
