Skywatch Friday

Sunset in the Similkameen 


And the moon hangs like a pendant under an apricot cloud in the south western sky


To the East the sun's rays catch the top of a potential thunderhead with a heavenly glow


and to the North a few cloudy fish swim in a subdued sky

Some nights, after a hot cloudless day, the sun goes to bed weary with its constant blazing, and doesn't bother putting on a show, but when a few clouds linger around he is seduced into creating  ethereal fireworks for us mortals.

For more wonderful skies visit here to reach Skywatch.

I've decided your sunset skies there in the Similkameen are some of the most scenic in the world. The colors, shapes and textures are ever-changing. The moon looks like a jewel in the sky. Have a wonderful weekend, Hildred.

Beautiful glowing sky. And your glowing words -- just perfect.

We are visiting our granddaughter and gs-in-law and their new forever family -- our great grandsons. Wonderful meeting the boys (and seeing their parents) But as I wind down after a busy day, I certainly appreciate the opportunity to see your peaceful skies. I haven't had time to look up!

How wonderful is the way you describe a sunset:"the sun goes to bed weary with its constant blazing, and doesn't bother putting on a show, but when a few clouds linger around he is seduced into creating ethereal fireworks for us mortals."
That's very poetical!
