SkyWatch ~ Afternoon and Evening

Driving up our road in the afternoon, I had to hop out of the car
and catch these lovely triplets coming down the hill.

Later that day as evening approached, I nipped out to the
garden to supervise the Prof's excavation for a young cherry
tree, I dashed back to grab my camera. The sky was gathering
some colour.

The final wave goos night was deidedly spectacular.

Worth enlarging if you have the time.
