View from our hotel in Turkey.
And this one are the only two photographs on my Flickr account tagged with sunset but it should be more correctly tagged setting sun.

I am sure there are some classic sunsets in amongst all the slides I scanned last summer, I will have a look this evening.
I don't know why I have this aversion to taking sunsets. I suppose it just doesn't appeal to my photographic aesthetic sense. I don't want that to seem pompous, but I've always felt the same. I look at some others rave over and think... meh!
I’m not averse it’s just that sunset time usually clashes with feeding time!
I'm looking forward to shorter daylight. Sleep deprived, me. Also cataracts don't like the bright light. What a sad person I am!
I guess, too, I am a seeker of something (anything) new. Sunsets - seen one seen them all.
The nights start drawing in over the next few days… should brighten your day
Only found two, and they are not great.
I had not noticed that I have been avoiding sun sets, I have just been though all my FB pictures and non there either. This evening I'll get bridge to read all the tags on my 'negative file' HDDs which may take some time...
Do sun rises count.

The closest I ever got to a kingfisher had oof background too. Struggling to find “bokeh” in the usual sense as it is usually unwanted.

Really horrible bokeh - still looking for unwanted circular highlights, can’t have deleted them all!

Good morning to you both! Hot and sunny here. Hope that doesn't mean rain for you both at the moment.
A little curious sparrow.
Flowers and bokeh.
Good morning to you too. The last hour looking for pics seems to have gone quickly! Sunny here. Ought to be doing desk work today (very overdue ) but the cycle club destination today is a nice ride.
Here something close to (unwanted) circles. After looking at pics I guess the only bokeh I tend to keep is so slight as to be unnoticeable. I hardly ever deliberately shoot narrow dof.
