Midwinter sunset: red sky at night = festinos delight?

I went out to take pictures of the large full moon rising tonight – no success with those – but there was a spectacular sunset to soak up.  Grahamstown seems to specialise in midwinter sunsets but you have to be quick as the play of light alters very rapidly.  These two pictures were taken only a few minutes apart and the change in the depth of the colours was something to experience.

Those of you who know Grahamstown will recognise the blocky shape of the Settlers Monument on the skyline to the left – and next week sees the start of the National Arts Festival.
