SkyWatch ~ Goolwa Sunset Part 2


. . . and so the sky show continues with Hindmarsh Island
lit up like a Christmas tree


as the Christmas lights fade, a magical rainbow appears


and grows brighter still.


Off to the side the voluminous rain clouds colour up


as the rainbow intensifies and the surrounding clouds lose
some of their pink.


The horizon below the pink cloud dulls to blue, yet all is not
done yet, the dynamic skies are still in store for next week.



Tune in again next week for the exciting part of this particular sunset.

All photos enlarge.
