Yellow Sunset

Have you ever seen a yellow sunset? I have seen sunsets all over the world, but never a yellow one. My girlfriend Ann just returned from a 10 day camel safari over the sand dunes in Morocco. I am so envious. It has always been my dream to do this. Have you ever seen the movie Lawrence of Arabia starring Peter O'Toole, riding on a camel through the Arabian desert with the Bedouins? Ever since seeing this movie, I have wanted to be in the middle of the desert on a vast expanse of rolling untouched sand, draped in exotic Bedouin garb, riding on a majestic dromedary camel. Soon.

  2. I thought these yellow sunsets were pretty unusual. But apparently they were the same color every night. Maybe it has something to do with the sand dunes?

  13. Another dream coming to fruition. How great.

    We saw the restored Lawrence of Arabia at the Ziegfeld in the late 80s (could it have been so long ago?) Breathtakingly beautiful. And I think the score left a brain imprint. I can hear it in my mind right now...

  14. Hi Maryam
    Thanks for the vote of assurance. I know it will come, but I am impatient. It's an Aries trait.

  15. Hi Diana
    I too saw the restored Lawrence of Arabia and Wow I guess it was the late 80's. I too can hear the music! Sigh

  17. Hi SPF
    That's the same info that BB8 left in her comment. I would hate to run into run into bad weather in the middle of the dessert.

  18. Here's a photo I took last winter in Seattle. Not a great photo as the highlights are all blown out, but I swear the sky was this very colour.
