Provincial Admiration

“Sunsets are quite old fashioned. To admire them is a distinct sign of provincialism of temperament. Upon the other hand they go on.”
Oscar Wilde 1854-1900

This old fashioned sunset occurred this week over San Francisco Bay. The city is to the left of the sun and the Golden Gate Bridge is just to the right.

To see more Sunday sunsets check out Scott's blog at Finding Another View.

  8. Absolutely beautiful -- I don't see that view very often. I've heard that type of a sky called a mackerel sky, after the skin of the fish -- William Blake is supposed to have mentioned a mackerel sky in one of his poems.

  9. Lovely post, the cloud formations are beautiful, and of course, the lighting is perfect!

  10. Wow, nature is such a great painter!
