SkyWatch ~ Sunset, a Moment of Glory


As the sun was setting, there was a blaze of gold on the skyline
over Moon Hill.


Startlingly bright against the dark land,


after the brightness faded, the clouds changed to burnt orange


and moments later the show was over with just a touch of
soft pink lingering in the easter sky.



OK, this is my sky, now let me see yours . . .

  24. gorgeous shots. Those clouds look like golden cotton. I would have loved to see it. :)
    Glad you made it through to mu blog. I have noticed that there are a lot of problems accessing many of them these days. I think it is both blogger and explorer. Sometime I use Google chrome instead of explorer. It is a bit faster. But not much. :( Maybe there are too many of us blogoging.
