evanescent = any fleeting moment in time

I used to do more sunset pictures than I do now. That’s because the longer we live here, the taller the trees around us are – and the less of a sunset I see. But these moments of clouds underlit by red light after the sun has gone down behind the hills of the Islands are indeed fleeting. In order to catch them I have to have a camera to hand – and stop whatever I am doing. I don’t sit gazing out of the window very much, especially in the early evening. But when the light changes, if there’s a glimpse of a red cloud, I drop what I am doing and try to find a clean space of window without a bug screen in front of it. Before the light fades.

This one was fairly recent, but it only got put into the MacBook last night when I was uploading the pictures of a day out. I was going to look for something “evanescent” in them, but this is better I think.
