Pringles sunset

A warm apricot glow finds its way through the trees and into the kitchen window. It catches my eye as I trail upstairs to bed.

I veer into the study, grab my camera and rush out into the warm, light evening – trailing kids behind.

Excited voices and laughter. The kids love leaping out of bed when they hear me running outside on a photographic adventure.

This time they are prepared. They have made a telescope out of an empty Pringles container to see the sunset more clearly.

It’s a good one, our Pringles sunset.

So good – that one is never enough and we just can’t stop (taking photos)!

    Can you imagine when they are all grown up….and they get together, “remember the time we took a pringles can to see the sunset.”

  16. How creative your children are! A Pringles sunset – wonderful! – and just in case they can’t quite recall all those beautiful colours they will have your glorious photos to remind them.

    The silhouette of your children in the last photo sharing the sunset with you made my eyes prickle with tears. Precious moment for sure.

    June 25, 2010 at 09:31

  18. Beautiful colours in these panoramic skies! Wonderful shots!

    June 25, 2010 at 10:30

  19. Your children are learning from you to delight in the moment – a real gift!

    June 25, 2010 at 10:42

  20. Those are beautiful pictures. I am so jealous of the Pringles! Pringles are not gluten-free, so I can’t bring them in the house or Peter is tempted — TEMPTED — to eat them.


    So I sneak them when I am over at my parents house.

    June 25, 2010 at 13:40

  21. both are beautiful but im leaning a bit on the last one because of the human element.

    June 25, 2010 at 14:44

  22. This was the same sunset? How amazing the color change! And so nice that your kids are learning from a young age to appreciate it!

    June 25, 2010 at 14:52

  23. Oooooo! Lovely colours, Is this really planet Earth?:) It’s magical.:)

    June 25, 2010 at 17:21

  26. the pringles sunset is indeed magical. and apricot is what it is: sweet! so dig the scene of you hustling through the house for the camera and the kids getting caught up in your wake.

    June 25, 2010 at 20:22
