Out of all the sunset colours I prefer the purple hues.

You may know of Venus as the Β Morning Star, if you live in the northern hemisphere.

    Awesome awesome photos! The color is amazing. I don’t recall too many skies this color, at least here in the middle of a large landmass. Maybe you need to be near the ocean?
    Still, very very beautiful.

      Thank you very much πŸ™‚
      I’m really not sure about living by the ocean, but mostly we get more the orange pink sunrises and sunsets. But I do love the violet πŸ™‚

    Beautiful photos Sci! πŸ™‚ ❀ I agree with you dear. I prefer the purple more since it looks more romantic and happens occasionally. Purple skies usually happens before raining in HK. Does the same happen in SA?

      Thank you πŸ™‚ And Yes, the Moon used to be 21 times closer to the Earth! I often contemplate this when I look at the night sjy and try to imagine just how massive and bright it must have been then. Eventually the Moon will escape Earth’s gravity all together and drift off onto space. Our tides and weather will go crazy, as it is the Moon’s influence that stabilises our planet. But not to worry, it’s a few years yet! And I doubt any humans will still be around to witness it.

    My favorite sky color at dusk is purple with a hint of blue, favorite moon is the skinny one especially with Venus near! Thanks for sharing these lovely photos.
