At the end of my previous post, I said that we were not expecting a great sunset that evening; the late afternoon sky was mostly grey, and rain was more likely to be coming our way than sun.
But the 8th of May showed such beautiful evening light that we simply HAD to go out once more. We took a bottle of rosé wine and glasses along and walked up the hill behind the village to one of our favourite benches at the edge of the small communal woods, overlooking the village, the Rhine valley and all the way to the Vosges.
The pictures were taken between just before 8:00 pm until about ten past 9:00. That day, sunset officially was at 8:42, and we watched it minute per minute, with all the subtle changes of light, colours and clouds, accompanied by the evening song of blackbirds and others. Also, it was warmer than it had been all day, a preview of what the Sunday was going to be.
Walking from the bench after the sun had really set, down the hill back to the village:
Last photo stop before turning in, at the playground at the edge of the village:
What a wonderful way to end a Saturday! I could really get used to this :-)
