Skywatch Friday

I think it's interesting and great how the colors in the sky can change almost dramatically in just a matter of minutes as evidenced in the shots below.


And when I see the mountains like in the photo below I always think of the part in our national anthem "for purple mountains majesty, above the fruited plains....". The mountains really do look purple.

Isn't that so true. Sunsets don't last long enough I thought. But wonderful captures.

It is majestic and peaceful at the same time. Great captures, as always.

I've learned since doing Skywatch. That if I see something in the sky I went to photograph. I need to take the picture right then, if I can do it safely.
Great pictures.
