Sunset photos.... the only ones I took all day.....



Our Location: 

North of MM 4, Ogilby Road, Winterhaven, California


I'm becoming a lazy sluggard and haven't walked for a number of days now. On the plus side my hip feels pretty good. So maybe a couple more days of sluggardness is in order. Sleeping is a tough thing for me and I often wake up in the middle of the  night and can't get back to sleep. Such was the case last night, although I did manage to fall back asleep about the time I'm usually getting up and so I slept through sunrise. The rest of the day was spent doing very little and I enjoyed every second. Some visits with Deb & Tom and the end of the day is the only time I took any photos. So enjoy. 


The new neighbours make it a bit more challenging to get good sunset photos.

The problem when I zoom to get the colour is the photo looks fake.

And far away doesn't show the colour nearly as well.

Over the Stinger Bee is some pretty pink, I think Tom is starting to BBQ.

It was yellow and pink and orange with the rippled clouds low down more reddish.

Across the wash the colours and clouds are changing.

The Cargo Muchacho Mountains basking in pink.

As it sinks lower the sun leaves fire in it's wake...

The pink is darkening a bit and beginning to show almost a purple hue just before it starts to fade...

The temps are dropping just as quickly as the sun.

Turning more bluey purple than pink as it starts to fade.

The colour is losing some fire and black/gray is starting to show.

The fade to black was quick and I missed it. Sorry. All of tonight's photos were taken with my iPad. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the sunset tonight. 


Until next time...


Take care, be safe, 





  1. Nice to be retired and do nothing some days and give the older body some time to rest up and repair.

  2. Enjoy the rest. We all need to slow down on occasion. Great sunset pictures. Today was gorgeous. I didn't do much either.

    1. I have been enjoying the slackers life! No sunset pic seems quite right as we are used to seeing the WL in the photo but I’m sure I will get used to it. It sounds like yesterday was stressful enough and resting should be in order.


  3. Nothing wrong with a couple of down days. We have been busy getting packing and getting a few last minute things done. Two more days!

    1. Isn’t the count down fun? I always enjoy it, although I usually end up two days ahead of schedule and seem to be too rushed at the last minute with those things that can only be accomplished at the last minute. I’m sure you folks are looking forward to a little warmth. Safe travels!
