Wasn’t it just the most superb sunset last night? I’d stopped off in Manuka to pick up some supplies for my mum and was literally stopped in my tracks when I glanced up while crossing the road (luckily no cars in sight!).
I took a couple of snaps in Manuka then pondered driving up Red Hill to take some more before remembering the stunning sunset photos taken during the one day cricket international at Manuka Oval late last year and heading there instead.
If you haven’t already booked tickets for the Prime Minister’s XI match on the night of Wednesday, February 15, here’s just one more reason to do so. Imagine sitting inside the ground watching Adam Voges score a lightning-fast century with a sunset like this as the backdrop?
Here’s the Facebook Live video of the scene last night.
OK, yes, I know I got a bit carried away there. Of course every sunset is different and no one can predict what we’ll see on February 15. One thing I do know is that I’ll be making sure I’m there with my phone well charged.
It was a privilege to step onto the edge of that very special ground (gingerly in my soft-soled shoes, I promise, Cricket ACT) in order to share the view with you all.
