Half past eight and the sun goes under. The temperature has gone up and the daylight is long. I’ll be going to Iceland in a while and will have 24 hours of light. It always feels so natural to me to have long daylight. I should move to the southern hemisphere in the winter, shouldn’t I?
I think beautiful sunsets are there to enjoy. Not to take pictures of. So, sue me.
Supposedly, this is the last day -sofar- of the grey and rainy days. It will be warm and sunny from now on. Ofcourse, we’re talking about a finite phenomenon.
Every day now starts white and after an hour or so, the wet snow is gone. It stays cold during the day. The spoonbills that we see in the fields must be freezing.
Again, as the last few days, the display of clouds is amazing.
The last rays of the sun leave golden, yellow, orange, red light in the sky. The sun sets fast. One second later and it’s gone.
The late afternoon sky just before dusk sets in.
It is very cold outside but here in the Reitdiephaven marina it looks like spring is about to happen. That could be wishful thinking, though.
The boat with the black hull has the Groningen flag in top.
And suddenly the light got all red and golden. Just before the sun went under.
The ever impressive sight from the balcony.
