Powburn sunset

Powburn sunset was magnificent!

Did you see the sunset tonight?

It was spectacular: bright reds, oranges, yellows, magentas and blues. I managed to get some photos before it disappeared forever. You can see how rich the colours were. None of the photos on this page are enhanced and I didn’t use any filters. They are exactly as they came out of the camera.

I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised at just how wonderful the night sky can be – we get stunning skies in the Breamish Valley and, of course, we’re privileged to have Dark Sky status.
