Skywatch Friday: Colorado Evening Sky

What is better after ending the long day, than to look up from where you are standing and see a wonderful evening sky looking down at you? I for one, think there is nothing better.

This shot was taken this fall at our cabin in Hartsel, Colorado. Actually, this is the first picture I have ever taken that you can at least see a small moon in the photo. You can click on photo to enlarge the picture for a better view. I think it is a perfect addition for Skywatch Friday.


Be sure to check out Skywatch Friday posts from around the world. You will be amazed at the clouds, animals, buildings, trees, and people that bring ordinary photos of the sky to a whole new level. ~See ya' next week!

  9. A wonderful SW picture. The moon in the blue expanse of the sky looks good. I love the clouds with that warm afterglow coming up behind the trees. A very nice composition for SW.

  33. Your Colorado skies are lovely. I like the half moon floating in the sea of blue with puffy pink islands near the horizan! I feel about Idaho like you do about Colorado. I've written her love poems and painted some photos. You can see them on my Poet Tree blog if you like. Thanks for stopping by Sycamore Canyon. Welcome to Skywatch Friday.!

  34. Lovely photo. I've never thought about taking a picture of the moon in the sky. I'm always amazed how it sometimes is so large and visible in the daytime. I'll have to take a picture sometime. Thanks for the inspiration.
