There’s always time for sunsets

1 Oct

Autumn is my favorite season in Shanghai.  The winds blow away the pollution, the nights get cool and there can be beautiful, beautiful sunsets.

The first glance out the window

We saw this one from our kitchen window on a recent weekend.  Dinner waited as we both stared in awe at the colors that splashed across the sky.  The sunset felt prophetic – the light leading into the heavens.



Ten minutes later – it was gone, only a memory.

Just before it disappeared

I’m glad I took the time for this sunset.

Happy National Chinese holidays to you all.  Today kicks off a week of vacation during the best time of the year.  We’ll be staying in Shanghai – too much travel for me this year – and enjoying the fall.

Hopefully there will be some more sunsets soon!

    Nice westerly view! Too bad Fall doesn’t last too long here.

      I know, too short, but the last several days have been absolutely gorgeous! Best time to be in Shanghai!

      Yes, agree – just need to take the time to look.

    Autumn used to be my favourite season in Canada… the cool winds bringing crisp clean air, bright colours as the leaves turned, time to pull out the funky jackets (NOT the parkas yet!) and boots, walking with a jaunty step. 🙂

    While Delhi does have winter, Mumbai just shifts between ‘warm’ and ‘warmer’ so I no longer get to enjoy that little ‘nip’ in the air.

    Enjoy your time without travel!! Me thinks a little nesting is in order. 🙂

      Yes, settling in and enjoying picture perfect weather! Mumbai is not so known for crisp weather – I agree!
