SWF - A proper sunset!

The fine summer weather allowed for swimming in the New Danube this evening,
and we were rewarded with a "proper" sunset:

A big red sun at the horizon...

a lonely bird in the purple haze...

deepening colours,
and an
artistic shot of the setting sun!

What a wonderful summer evening!

Well, we are not the only skywatchers on this planet:

Hi Maria:)

Amazing photos of breathtaking sunset. Absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking! The burning red sky with a golden,yellow sun makes a stunning visual treat. Wonderful photography.

Unfortunately, we in Kochi can't see the sun set because the sky is always cloudy and dark. So I can over to see your lovely sun set. But I could not see any one swimming. I think I am late:)

Have a bright and beautiful day Maria:)

Hi Maria!
very beautiful!!
I don't have rivers near my house.
So when I see your photo at the river side, I think I wish I lived in your town!
by the way do you have summer festivals in Vienna?
