Sunset

After mostly stormy weather, wind, rains, snows we had a wonderful sunset a few nights ago. I glanced out of the windows of my bookstore and saw the medieval buildings on Castle Ridge turning a copper-red, the sandstone blocks reflecting the dying rays of the sun. I nipped out the door onto Princes Street and found the clouds arranged in an almost fan-like formation, uplit in a salmon-pink by the sun which was dipping below the western horizon. It only lasted a few minutes but it was utterly gorgeous and the picture really doesn’t do it justice.
