    Yes Michael, Keelin brought the sunsets with Second Floor Sunset to a next level.  Very funny title.

    Nice dark blue atmosphere on Sunset  #401 btw.

    Thank you for launching us into Volume IV, Michael and Hans with your dramatic and astonishing celebrations of the dimming of days and nights. I shall need to venture outdoors either earlier or later to contribute more to this colorful topic, but here is a simple blush that caught my eye not long ago. Almost as if the Sky were playing coy and flirting with long shadowy Cirrus lashes.

    It is a very subtle Blush you captured Keelin. love it.

    Here a picture of the sun at his his last attempt at the end of the day to shine through the altostratus making it look like being at the horizon (but it isn’t yet).

    Hans, my moonrise today was very akin to your last sunset #320890.

    I missed this but The Times published one 27NOV2018. I loved the winning sunrise sky and there are other interesting skies too

    Fantastic pictures can be found in the link you provided Hygge. Thanks for sharing. I agree with you about the sunrise. The morning dew on the foreground makes it enchanting and otherworldly.

    Here – more simply – a composition in reds.

    Hans, your image of the sun’s last attempt has a pleasing patina to it — lovely subtle colors there, and in your composition in reds as well.

    Hygee, thank you for links to stunning photos.

    And Micheal, ah, another beauty with a blush.

    A colleague of mine caught this sunrise scene while driving into work (I have to believe he was stopped at a light) and knowing my interest in clouds wanted to share it.

    So what kind of clouds are these? Altocumulus? I have trouble identifying with confidence.

    Anyway, I think the colors and shapes are quite unique.

    Nice sunset George. It reminds me of a picture I posted in a former volume of Sunstes and Sunrises:

    There are some similarities

    Nevertheless any picture of the sky is unique. These formations at sunsets are hard to classify, because the shadows of the streaking light of the setting sun underneath gives the cloud a different appearance. Anyway my guess is stratocumulus. Any other opinions?

    Next one is easier to classify as altocumulus. A  classical view at sunset.

    REF:  Letter to the Editor, ‘British eccentrics’ from Malcolm Mitchell; The Times 11MAR2019

    Mitchell ends ‘The next day I was fishing in the Lee when Lady Carton de Wiart appeared at the top of the bank, ringing a bell and announcing tea. When I got to the top of the bank there were two chairs and a table on which were two glasses and a bottle of bubbly in an ice bucket. The perfect way to watch the sunset.’

    Hans, that makes me think of emigrating to France – Brentry I suppose you could call it. (Funnily enough part of Hillier Gardens where I Volunteer is called Brentry).

    This World Service program ‘Why do we find things beautiful?’

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3csz1sr

    mentions sunsets. I think the abstract is very good and well worth reading, but you don’t garner that much more by listening to the whole program.

    Hans, Yes the real timing of Sunrise/Sunset is based on what clouds are in the sky. Its best when there is a full range of cumo to cirrus available for the show. Once the sun hits the horizon line there is about 15 minutes of fast color changes .

    Thank you for sharing such beauties to softly close the day, Roma, Michael, and Hans. While I don’t catch sunsets as often as I’d like, the intensity of the one below drew me outdoors just in time a few evenings ago.

    The last several images here are gorgeous! I keep returning to favorites of Arizona Sunset #421 and #422 by Michael, and Hans’s most recent in between them. Again, I’m reminded of The Little Prince who could watch endless sunsets on his tiny planet simply by strolling (as opposed to scrolling). And perhaps because of this reference, I now see a purple rose in the image below. After several days with very few clouds here, yesterday closed with this brilliant surprise.
