SkyWatch Friday

Spectacular Skies in the Similkameen

So many magnificent evening shows I hardly know where to start....

A week ago today, on Thursday, July 23rd, the curtain rose with subtle lights on the hills of the Cawston Basin...



and the setting sun tipped the face of K Mountain.



Five minutes later the eastern sky was a fiery cauldron...



On the 24th a lovely rainbow reached up and pulled the curtain on a more mellow sunset.



First an angelic sky....



followed by the lovely pastels of a fair weather summery sky.



Squint your eyes a little and look at the cloud-clown who stood off a little to the north and watched for the moon floating languidly amongst the clouds in the south.

Spectacular shots. I loved the partial light on the mountains and the beautiful sky shots.

A whole set of beauty, but to me those two with the golden light on the mountain sides must be the winner.

There is no word to do these photographs justice other than exquisite, Hildred.

So lovely, Hildred - your skies are amazing! I did see the clown...
My favorites would have to be the golden tint in the rising and setting sun on the rocks.
