Sunsets, Orang Utans and Kit Kats

Skyline over Forfar from my bedroom window this evening.

And seeing as you're here.......

Next time you think about buying anything made by Nestle......

From Greenpeace's website:

'Nestlé, maker of Kit Kat, uses palm oil from companies that are trashing Indonesian rainforests, threatening the livelihoods of local people and pushing orang-utans towards extinction.
We all deserve to have a break - but having one shouldn't involve taking a bite out of Indonesia's precious rainforests. We're asking Nestlé to give rainforests and orang-utans a break and stop buying palm oil from destroyed forests.'

Check out this vid, it lasts about 59 secs:

  2. What a gorgeous sunset and superb capture, Neil! Thanks for the heads-up regarding Nestle! Have a great weekend!


  3. that's a nice view from your window.:p

  4. I think you've just put an end to my Kit Kat consumption, Neil, but sweetened with this fiery sunset.

  5. Great sunset and did you see that documentary a few weeks ago about so called fairtrade cocoa and palm oil. Had to do with habitat destruction, child labor, etc. And the Kit-Kat was mentioned

  6. That video should be shown worldwide - shame on Nestle.

  7. So - true what they said about the Ash cloud creating wonderful sunsets then? Cheers for sharing that one Neil!
