Best Shot Monday: Last Gasp

There haven't been many photos around here of late. I had resigned myself to, yet again, having nothing to offer for Monday but then I saw this as I went to close the blinds this evening and thought, perhaps I will get a shot for BSM after all!!

Winter is definitely the time for spectacular sunsets from our balcony and yesterday was the first day of Winter so we are 'in the zone'. Just in time for Winter I have scored myself a cold and so was off school today. I figured I could afford a Monday off as it is just history whereas all the other days have Maths classes and I don't like to miss them as we get unsettled.

I spent all day resting and reading blogs which was a relief after the lunatic weekend I spent racing from one thing to another. I need to go to bed now but I will try and post more later in the week although, looking at the diary, it promises to be another intense one. I have a course to attend and a meeting out at our other campus to try and establish some cross-campus protocols. Then BA is away on camp but will be back in time for netball practice on Weds and selling raffle tickets at The Bestie's fundraising event on Thursday night.
Phew.
Roll on Queen's Birthday Long Weekend.

Got to start writing exams and reports soon too.

I feel a relapse coming on.

For some lovely photos, click on Mother May I and check out Best Shot Monday.

I am glad you contridbuted to BSM with that - it is gorgeous!
So strange to think of winter beginning now just as we're in the throes of hot, steamy summer!

Dawn said...

This is beautiful!! And to think you saw this from your window!!

Hang in there, dear arizaphale, with all of your many plans and busyness.

Isn't it just mind boggling how you turn around and realize that life is crazy busy? How does that happen?

And that shot is beautiful! I have been wanting to see a sunset shot for a long time - and this was just perfect!

Wow, that is beautiful! You Aussies have the BEST sunsets ever!

Beautiful sky in your winter weather over there. Just remember, it's 96 degrees here, and you will feel better after all:)

Take care!

I was up to see the sunrise this morning and it was equally stunning. I'm starting to find the beauty in my new home!

Maya said...

Beautiful shot! Hope you feel better!

This is absolutely beautiful.

"I spent all day resting and reading blogs" - sounds like a perfect day. :)

That is one beautiful shot! We have so many stinkin' pine trees we hardly ever catch a sunset at our house. Or a sunrise for that matter. Lucky you, even if it did take a cold to make you slow down enough to see it. :)

Gorgeous!

And I'm glad you stopped off at my blog because now I've found a new interesting blog to read-yours.

Australia, wow!

I left a comment here before, but somehow I think I deleted it...I just wanted you to know how amazing I think this shot is! What a sunset!! Your last gasp made me gasp as well...
(I just recently read the margin on the right about Adelaide)I love the fact that your city is so seemingly cut off, but is so arty and cultural...and with sunsets like these, I can certainly see why you live there! What a winter.
Oh yes, do take some time to REST!!
