The sun had set beyond the horizon, and was lighting up the sky in the most wonderful way. Deep terracotta orange at the base, lightening to yellow before transitioning into a cavalcade of blue, with white tips on the few wispy clouds that gently floated in the sky.
The rooftops that could be seen out of the window blended in with the bare tree branches in a silhouette of black, lining the skyâ€™s kaleidoscope of colours.
I was transfixed by the view as it slowly changed.
Then someone turned the lights on and all I could see was my reflection.
