The sunset over Leeds on Sunday looked so magical when we was returning from our cold day visiting the Christmas Markets in Wetherby & Knaresborough, I quickly pulled over the car and captured this celestial skyscape, but it wasn’t until the lovely Wife said it looks like sand dunes when you looked at it upside down, but…when I did, I instantly saw something completely different …A PLANET, it was as if I’d photographed the Planet Earth whilst sitting in the International Space Station (wishful thing on my part).
Hope you like it, and watch out for more post over the coming days, even one about why I haven’t posted a blog in over 3 months.

I’ve missed your posts Carl, and this image illustrates why! WOW! Had you not explained, I would have thought – yep, something from the ISS (which I happen to catch flying overhead last night, amazing every time I see it!). Looking forward to more from you.
That’s so nice of you to say Alex, I’ve few lined up, even a nice one about an Astronaut and Poetry about the Moon.
It’s the closest to space I’ll ever get I think, but one can only hope…one day.
Thanks again for the lovely comment Alex
Great shot, Carl! I love that it works upside-down too!
Thanks Naomi, amazing what looking at a photo differently can produce
You caught a great moment. A gift of nature. Beautiful image. We all hope to see more from you in the near future. Happy Holidays!
Happy Holidays to as well Vera… you’ll see lots more over the coming weeks
I am so glad to see you dear Carl. Welcome back. 🙂 When I saw your photograph, first of all I thought that you shared something from space photographs… And I didn’t know that it was yours and also it seemed exactly like taken from space… This is amazing… amazing. Made me excited too. Thank you, I would like to see your photographs, you always bring interesting posts. Have a nice day, love, nia
Hi Nia, thanks for the wonderful comments, its made it so worthwhile that I started posting again getting lovely feedback from you.
Thanks Carl 🙂
Wow! What a shot! Good to see you back 🙂
Cheers Alastair, good to be back
Having enjoyed your photo upside down as you have presented it, I found it quite difficult at first to “see” it when I looked at it the other way up!
It was such a weird one for me, I was only admiring the grandeur of the sunset, but it’s so nice when someone see’s it in a completely different way… I’d have never posted this if wasn’t for the Wife’s different perspective.
Thanks again Alastair
