Bush fire at Putty Valley Road outside Singleton causes pink smoky sunset in Hunter

NEARBY bush fires, namely the one at Putty Valley Road outside Singleton, provided a pretty sunset on Wednesday.

Nine-year old Bella Rose Sparkes saw the gorgeous sight at the Pender Place car park at about 6.30pm, and decided she needed to take a photo straight away.

“She thought that it was pink because it was Valentine’s Day and all the love was in the air,” her mother Aimee Hanson said.

“She loves [photography] – she’s right into all that sort of stuff and being outdoors.

“She loves helping and loves doing things outside; she’s not a video games person.”

Bella Rose, who recently moved to moved to D.A.L.E at St Philips Christian College, Cessnock, also really wanted a photo so she could show her new teacher.

“She was so happy,” Ms Hanson said.

“She actually said ‘that should be in the newspaper mum – I want everyone to see the love, and capture the love in the sky’.”

The pink sky may have disappeared, but Bella Rose still wants to share the love around.

“Have a great day,” she said with a giggle.
