And closer to home… a glorious sunset seen over Melbourne Port (in Australia that is).

2 sunsets for Skywatch, and a beer bottle to follow….

Have you heard of Lucky Beer?

My husband had it while he was out with his friends. It has an unusual bottle of Buddha holding up a gold ingot, so he brought it home for me.

You can see a photo of the bottle here plus an article on the beer. I was thinking of throwing the bottle away (I tried using it as a vase, then a candle holder… No good), but the article says that the bottle is fast becoming a collector’s piece. Maybe I’ll keep it for a while.

Dear Evelyn,
Oh, thank you for sharing these beautiful photos! I really love watching sunset. The bottle is very interesting, but I do not know. Next time, I'll ask a shop(even though I went for sketching at a bar tonight;)).
Cheers, Sadami

Very cool bottle indeed and you captured it marvelously in your sketch! And the sunsets in your photos!

Love how the sun is peeking out of the clouds in the one shot. It's so different than the sunsets here because it's all yellow, but I love the yellows.

Interesting bottle. I'm sure you could find some sort of use for it while it's becoming a collectors item.
