Meanwhile... for Skywatch

Last week for Skywatch I posted photos of the Big Lenticular Sunset. It was one of the most amazing sights I have ever seen. However, as I mentioned in that post, when I turned away from the lenticular clouds over the Organ Mountains, I was greeted with another stunning sunset show--just a little more subtle.

Be sure to click on the photos for a better look.

Looking toward Picacho Peak


It looked like the pecan trees were ablaze



For sky photos taken at all times of the day and all around the world, please visit Skywatch Friday.

The desert does offer some stunning sunsets and sunrises, these are great.
I'm glad you edjoyed my fog. Today we have the "after a storm" blue skies, I like that better.

Great colours in your skies which, somehow, would expect. For Ruby Tuesday I did an O'Keeffe piece, in case you are interested!
