SkyWatch ~ Sunset Serenade

Coming home from town the other day, we stopped in one of
the little towns on the way to pick up some milk . . .
Going back to the car, the sky was full of magic,

as it started to rain, I looked slightly to the right and saw the
season of rainbows still had something in it's pocket . . .
raindrops on the lens and all . . .

I think I would make a pretty good sharp-shooter, all the
following shots were taken from a fast moving car.

I thought this one looked like something 'out of Africa'.

This was more like a bushfire (wildfire for those in N.America).

This one is just a tad threatening . . .

I was amazed how with so many trees along the roadside
impeding my view, I managed to get quite reasonable shots.

Somehow I managed to gather the best clouds with even a
bit of foreground.

Enlarge and enjoy!

  3. These are fantastic, Arija! You did catch some gorgeous ones -- but then you always do!! An awesome sunset serenade indeed! Hope you have a lovely weekend with more beautiful skies!


  4. You encounter the absolute best clouds, Arija. These are even more spectacular and variable than usual. I'm really glad you take that camera with you wherever you go.
