Tickled pink

I’m not usually a big fan of pink.

But when Nature takes her paintbrush

And lights up the bowl of the sky with a rainbow of  pinks…

Well, who can resist?

And, judging by the looks of things,

I wasn’t the only one who was tickled pink

By the vibrancy of the sunset.

Who says November is always grey?

  6. This November has been the best one I can remember in terms of clear, sunny mornings and only slightly overcast afternoons, followed by colourful sunsets. Of course we don’t get the pinks down here – ours are much more in the yellow and orange spectrum. Yours are just stunning – like looking through a rose coloured lens.

This kind of beauty is not seen as frequently in November — at least here in Seattle, but when the colorful skies do arrive they are SO appreciated and enjoyed! Thanks for sharing yours, Fiona! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with lots of lovely skies!
