Sky Watch Friday


Just before 10pm last Monday, I saw this cloud gently lit by the setting sun. I took three photos at five-minute intervals.




For more Sky Watch pictures, visit our host at
Wiggers World
and have a good weekend.

It's fascinating how the light changes.

Your 5 mins intervals were timed just right. These are fantastic images over the houses. Bouncing light and shimmering colours. Excellent set I would have been proud to have snapped.

Unfortunately Tom is on bed rest today and for the first time you are stuck with me. I have my orders to visit as many as I can, and make sure the links are working and everyone is being good. I am sure you are all being good.
Tom and I thank you for Sky-Watching this week. I am sure that as soon as Tom's heart beat settles down he will be back here and visiting.

Wonderful shots ! I did the same in Italy, the skies were so beautiful and so different all 5 min ! It's a miracle that I didn't get a stiff neck, lol !

I just love how the lighter colors form in the darker one, beautiful set of photos

JC said...

Very nice! By 10 pm we are all dark. Your shots look like around 8:45 - 9 pm for us.

Rosebud said...

I only posted 2 photos, but just as you have, I too, wanted to show how rapidly the sky changes at sunset. How neat is that?

Little Baby Nothing said...

Lovely photos, especially the first one - it's gorgeous!

Babs (Beetle) said...

I love taking these kind of photos at intervals. These are great, Dragonstar! Thanks for your encouraging words on my Y post.

Your sunrises are perfect moments!

10 p.m. sunset! I used to live where, in the summer, the sun would stay out late, but now it seems s alien. Year 'round, sunset here is more or less 7 p.m. and sunrise is right around 6 a.m. -- weather also almost never changes. Which means our clouds almost never change. I enjoy the drama unfolding in your clouds. Very beautiful.

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Those are fantastic pics.

nonizamboni said...

Nice views of minute to minute changes. Lovely!

CrazyCath said...

Lovely colours above the clouds. Well captured.

John said...

Great sunset shots!
Have a nice weekend.

B. Roan said...

I can't decide whether I like sunrise or sunset best. I love the way the clouds move during the five minute intervals. Great idea.

WillThink4Wine said...

Your skies stay bright quite late! Stunning shots. I confess that I have a much easier time with sunrises than sunsets. I can never seem to stay up that late. ;)

CherryPie said...

Very beautiful :-)
