Squares in January – Day 31

Indirect Sunlight

We’d been told the sunsets in Western Australia were nothing short of spectacular, but I didn’t realise that you had to wait for the Sun to completely disappear below the horizon before that spectacle began and that clouds out there were a good thing.

That was the case on Friday, April 10, 2009.

I was in Perth for work and Dean flew over for the weekend.  It’s just a short 5½ hour flight.  When I finished work for the day, Dean met me at the office and we took the train to Cottesloe Beach to dine on ‘fish & chips’ and sit and watch (what I thought was) a rather unremarkable sunset.

Bitterly disappointed (to say the least), we headed back to the railway station to catch the train back into the city.  This was when I noticed bright red colouring in the side rearview mirror of a car I walked past, turned around and was amazed at what I saw.

We raced back to the beach and this is what (eventually) unfolded over the next half an hour or so.

It was, and still is, absolutely unforgettable.
