Sky Watch #116: November 5 and 6 Sunsets

11 Nov

November 5 – Leaving work, walking in parking lot towards the car.

This greeted me. I thanked my lucky stars that I brought the camera.

In the blink of an eye, the fire in the sky is gone. So quickly.

November 6 – Encouraged by yesterday’s display above, I decided to keep the camera in my purse, just in case and voila………..

So beautiful!

And zoomed.

If I’m not mistaken, we had rain the following day.

I would be out all day on Thursday, but I would be conducting my bloghopping duties in the evening. Have a lovely Veteran’s Day.

Sky Watch is a weekly gathering of sky lovers and sky watchers.

    That first looks soft – like feathers, but the last is definitely fire in the sky.

    You captured two fantastic sunsets here – awesome shots! Both in the morning and the night, that fire never lasts long, at least not where I live.
