Skywatch Friday: Colorado Sunset

Welcome to this weeks addition to Skywatch Friday. Visit the Skywatch site for more wonderful pictures from around the globe. Click Here and start your journey.

This week, I have two photos taken in Hartsel Colorado at our cabin in the mountains. These shots are of the sky just before sunset.


This was taken about 8 minutes before the next shot was taken. The colors of the western sky are very vibrant.

It is amazing how you can look at the sky one minute and look back again, and you will see something totally different.


Have a great weekend everyone! Happy Sky Watching ~ And thanks for stopping by.

  17. These are great shots. I often do the same thing -- just keep shooting every minute or two, especially during a sunrise or sunset. It's amazing how much the sky can change in a very short space of time.

  19. How beautiful! We were camping this past weekend and when I finally surrendered to nature's call and dragged myself from my warm bed, the sky was gorgeous. But I was too sleepy to grab the camera and by the time I returned to the tent, the beauty was gone--fleeting! how sad.

  21. CL: These are two great shots of the sky.

    Do you have a survey linked into your site. This is not proper to have as part of your Sky Watch post. You need to turn it off for Sky Watch posts.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
