One positive side of the volcanic ash that's shutting down airports around Europe? Beautiful sunsets. Flickr recently blogged about a collection of images taken over the past few evenings, and I couldn't resist sharing the one below, since it has a literary angle. It was taken from Chesil Beach, Portsmouth, in the UK, where an unfortunate honeymoon takes place in Ian McEwan's On Chesil Beach. Perhaps if Edward and Florence had had a sunset like this to admire, things would have turned out differently?
