What rhymes with orange?





Took these last month as the sun was going down within about ten or fifteen minutes of each other. Never ceases to amaze me how everything changes so rapidly at sunset.  This was the exact spot looking west to Carnoustie as I posted last week (Where Sea and Sky Collide). The golden/orange  glow makes it look gloriously warm and serene, but it was bloody freezing! I say golden/ orange but I may be wrong as I'm actually colour blind. (seriously folks!) so if my colour descriptions confuse, forgive me.

  1. I think "golden-orange" is a pretty good description. And I'm NOT color blind. I love the blue above the golden orange. The last photo is wonderful.

  2. Its great how the clouds fan out on the second photo. It's indeed hard to believe that they were taken so close to each other.
