SkyWatch Friday



Sunset w bonus
This was the most amazing sunset. I saw it starting on the way home from work and knew I wouldn’t make it home in time to get any good shots, so I pulled into the parking lot of a local sawmill and grabbed all the shots I could get.

I don’t know what the bright object over the clouds is. It looks like its smeared around it but that’s how it came out of the camera. Moon? Planet? UFO?

  3. That is indeed a great shot. I think the one on top is the moon or maybe a planet, Venus or Mercury. Hahaha! Lovely shot! Awesome sunset!

    You did wise to take the photo while you could otherwise you would have missed the right moment. The result is stunning!

  7. Ok, try again...

    It's really fantastic image. I wish I took this, Faye.

    I believe the bright object is lens flare, but it looks like something else. It's good fun to have some imaginations!

  14. Hi Faye, I'm betting on the moon. I took one like that and had a moon. That 'ride' that looks scary is a ski run. That would be scarier yet for me.
    Thank you for your visit and nice comment. Happy SkyWatching!

  15. Faye, great shot I love the golden/yellow color in the clouds.
    I think it is a UFO, I think it is calling us to go to the coast!!
    Still using the laptop, I will have my puter back by the end of the month. Miss you too

  17. Absolutely spectacular shot. Glad you had the sense to pull over.
    I suspect you were using a clear filter to protect your lens, that would explain your UFO.
