As if it were gold

As if being an AvGeek is not enough, I did consider the position of the sun when picking my return journey from Germany. Covered in clouds for the last couple of days of staying at my sister's place, and expecting nothing but fog and cold in Ljubljana, a flight is probably the best way to boost my vitamin D production :) 
After some trouble with my train connection (that was solved in my favour by a super friendly Deutsche Bahn lady), a super fast security check at Frankfurt and lots of waiting due to my early arrival, it's probably needless to say that the breaking through the grey cloud layer can't be compared to anything else. 
Who has plowed the skies?
Of course the sunny side of the aircraft means reflections in the windows, especially as the sun was shining strong.
In fact, the sun seemed to be so high that I began to wonder whether we will be landing before the sunset after all, but the timing turned out to be just right.
With the evening setting in, the sky got this special warm, glowing touch... As if it were gold...
Somewhere above Slovenia, lake Bled in the rght lower corner.
As beautiful as a goodbye can be...
(And a try to get rid of the reflections)
Into the clouds...
But just when you think they're here to stay, it turns out to be a little cloudy intermezzo, while the sun turns orange.
Ljubljana basin covered in fog
And while the sunset ignited one side of heavens...
... Night began to take over in the other part of the skies.
Misty skies with an (almost) full moon
Evening skies above Ljubljana airport.
