Chinese lantern in the gloaming

It may be because Melbourne is not hemmed by mountains to the west, but in summer the sunset lasts for hours. The gloaming usually begins lemon yellow and slowly intensifies through orange to red, to a ruddy burnt sienna, and then … black.

This is a Chinese lantern, illuminated from without by a fading sun.
