an australian sunset

How amazing is this sunset I almost missed!

I was baking in the kitchen and glimpsed out the window and caught the end of the most gorgeous purples and pinks setting in the distance.

Now being the long weekend I cant quite remember if it was yesterday or the day before, but really it doesn't matter, long weekends will do that to you.

I don't think it gets much more Australian then the palm trees and the power lines, the neighbours having a barbecue and the sound of a lawn mower in the distance do you?


  1. I think it was last night (Saturday night). I was driving from Gumdale into the city at around 6.30pm and saw these same colours. Absolutely gorgeous, I agree!
    Palm trees, power lines, bbq and lawn mower - nothing more Australian than that!

  2. lovely, lovely
    a bit Scott Redford? (those fluoro colours)
    I can smell the dusk air!

  3. Ahh the lawn mowers get me everytime. Remind me of hot,sticky, afternoons of my childhood. Yes, don't we have spectacular sunsets! A-M xx

  4. Gorgeous photo! I wish my back yard sounded like that, I just have barking dogs, drunken teenage guys yelling all day long, and a few apartments trying to play their terrible music louder than everyone else. Such are the joys of apartment living! At least I can always just go to the beach instead! :D

    Happy Australia Day!

  5. You are so right, you've captured it perfectly. There is a photo in my baby photo album of the sunset the night I was born, taken by my father who has always been quite 'handy with the camera'. The colours are the same. Happy Australia day bella xxx

  6. This is so stunning! I want to shut my eyes and open them and instantly be there! x

  7. Great photo Alischa! The only thing missing from your truly Australian setting is the "Hills Hoist" clothes-line.
