Sunset via bathroom door

Over the last week or so we have been experiencing some rich sunsets through the trees as the sun begins its migration to the south-west for our summer.

A couple of days ago Fiona drew my attention to the fact that the sun must be a ball of fire - how did she know as the western blinds were down - she could see the distorted image below through the pixelated privacy glass in the bathroom door that opens onto the western deck. Why we have a bathroom door that opens onto our western deck is another story.

The actual sunset looked like that in the photo below.

Following are a sequence of photos of the sunset through the bathroom door as it fades to nothing.

And with these shots I didn't even need to use an iPhone app.


  1. Totally captivating - the last one is my favorite.

  2. most mesmerizing images of Fiona's ball of fire...

  3. Interesting how many things 'creative' people notice that many others wouldn't. Lovely pics.

  4. I love those compositions, delicious colors and textures in different variations. Very mysterious.

  5. non-pixel pixels...photographing the sunset (or the moon) can be such entertainment! nice work

  6. Your bathroom door is a substitute for enhanced digital imagery.. very beautiful.

  7. Hello, Barry

    Attractive works.
    You are the excellent artist.

    I thank for your usual and hearty support.
    And i pray for you and yours peace.

    arigatou gozaimashita !!
    ありがとう ございました。

  8. Hi VA, AM, JM, L, V, D & R - glad you enjoyed the bit of photo fun through our bathroom door. JM - so right I find myself seeing so many things that I want to capture and share - I didn't do that as much in the past when I was buried in the bureaucracy - but now I have the time and inclination to see. Go well all. B
