At the end of last year we had an absolutely gorgeous sunset in Wellington. Myself and fellow blogger Off-Black both got out with our cameras and recorded the event for future generations.
Off-Black actually made it at least as far as the street, unlike me. His fantastic shots, including this one (above - copyright © Off-Black 2008), can be found here, along with a little science, and a little philoetry (it's like philosophy and poetry running together).I was lazy, and pretty much stayed on the deck of our house to get these shots as the sky darkened.
Then I got up the courage to head down to the pohutukawa tree which was in its brilliant Christmas flowering, and took a few there too.
