SkyWatch ~ Mt. Remarkable Sunset

Back in the circuit again!

Our first overnight stop was in Melrose, at the foot of
Mt.Remarkable where we climbed part way up the mountain
and just caught the tail end of the sunset.

Naturally I kept on shooting as I huffed and puffed ever upward.

Stopping to turn around and enjoy the moon in the blue of
the eastern sky (in case you can't see it, it is the tiny white spot
in the upper middle of the sky)

and trudging on to wonder at the whirling clouds overhead.

To end the day the full drama emerged and we just managed
to stumble down again before it was pitch dark.

All photos enlarge of course.

Thank you to the splendid SkyWatch Team for their tenacity
in keeping this great meme going.


  1. Cik interesanta krāsu spēle mākoņos. Manuprāt, izcilas fotogrāfijas.
    Man arī ļoti patika pelikāns lidojumā - tik neparasts putns un vēl tādā momentā Jums izdevās nofotogrāfēt.

  2. Isn't Melrose a beautiful place ,and so peaceful.
    Thanks for the notification of the Leafy Sea Dragon Festival Arija. Have fun with your photos! Unfortunately I may be away elsewhere at that time, but I appreciated your visit to Textilosophy to let me know, and your thoughtful comment.

  3. Oh, those are beautiful! I was trudging along with you!

  8. Gorgeous sunset shots, Arija. I like the last one the best--very dramatic! It is amazing how quickly sunset colors change as the seconds go by.

  21. Beautiful photos..I hope that you are doing well dear friend.... hugs..Michelle

  22. Sunsets through clouds are so beautiful.

    Thank you so much for your message. I'm glad your heart valve is doing well. I know how hard it is when loved ones health fails on top of everything else. You and your husband will both be in my thoughts.

    I also understand the gardening issues. It's hard in some ways for me to see my garden grow wilder and wilder even though I like the wildness in some ways. I guess optimally I'd like to be able to tend the parts I want to and make choices about what goes wild. As you said though it is a process and we all have to deal with it as we get older.

    Love, Carver
