SkyWatch Friday - Just another sunset.

Last Monday night heading home after spending a day in the mountains, the sun was setting and I made my son-in-law late as I had to stop and take pictures of the setting sun.


He could not believe how the blues created by the shadows of the clouds stood out.  I am always amazed at how quickly the lights change during a sunset or a sunrise.
This next picture was taken just four minutes before the first one.
                                      

Just the end of another wild day in Idaho.

Check out other beautiful pictures of the sky on SkyWatch Friday

Bill: Love the colors in both photos but that first is my favorite with the dark sections of sky.

Those colors are electrifying! It was well worth making your son-in-law late. :) So much happens in those few minutes. I'm honored that you stopped by my blog and left a comment. Thanks! Happy Friday to you.

I think that Idaho must have the most gorgeous sunsets in the world... Ours are pretty --but YOURS are marvelous.

Thanks.

Just stunning. That's a great observation, how quickly things change. Thanks for staying a few minutes longer to show us!

Also I loved the sapsucker photo in the previous post. I wish I could take better bird pictures.

Beautiful sunset. Once I get started I can end up with 50 pictures of a sunset. It seems like each minute is better than the last and I just keep clicking away.
