SkyWatch *15 Towards Sunset

All photos directly from the camera and can be
enlarged for full effect.

Whenever God closes a door, somewhere He
opens a window



The sky was so changeable, all these photos
were taken within minutes of each other



All of a sudden the angels were playing noughts
and crosss right across the sky



and shifting, ever shifting , they went towards
sunset



In less than 15 minutes, the sun had changed
its tune and brought some warmer tones into
the passing clouds.



To the SkyWatch team, my heartfelt appreciation
for giving us the opportunity to present our skies.
