Further to my two previous posts, there is a 10-minute walk from the shore where we were watching the sun set and slowly fade away in the horizon to where we had parked our car. You will understand our astonishment as we were driving away believing the show was over and suddenly noticed the south-western sky turning all pink.
The evening twilight hour – the time from sunset to when the sun is 6° below the horizon (currently for us some 50 minutes) – may offer pleasant surprises depending on the weather conditions such as the type of cloud cover. We couldn’t but continue to Saaronniemi to admire the deliciously pink sky turn purple and mauve. A week earlier the sunset hour we spent at the location was little more than grey (post here).
I couldn’t imagine a more beautiful natural spectacle. Then again, I might be a bit biased as a hint of blue in any red or vice versa will immediately make the tone irresistible to me. Well, perhaps the Nordic lights might beat this but capturing those will remain beyond this amateur’s reach if not forever at least far into the future.
