Sky Watch #19



The cold November sunsets do not seem to be as vivid as last month's evening skies. But though they are paler, they are still beautiful.


I was in a shopping center about a week ago, and as I walked back to my car, I looked up and saw this sky.



When I reached my car, I continued to watch t
he sky until it grew dark.









Please go to the Sky Watch site to see more wonderful skies. Sky Watch is made possible through the efforts of a growing team of people. Thanks to them all for their efforts in continuing to make this possible for us all.

Your fall sunsets look like ours, grayer, but still beautiful! Always look forward to your posts, Bobbi!

I think sunsets are grayer as well. But we sure have been having great sunrises here.

Deborah Godin said...

These are beautiful, I would have grabbed my camera, too. They almost look like feathers in the sky!

Dave said...

These were wonderful sky shots. A little scary actually, but amazing.

Still more beautiful than most.

I think they're beautiful too, Bobbie.
Happy Sky Watch!

These are lovely pictures Bobbie.
The clouds have a texture, which makes me think of lace.
Thank you for sharing.

As the weather gets colder, the air retains less moisture which is in part responsible for those fiery sunrises and sunsets we see in the warmer months. But even without vivid colors, these shots "work". Nicely done!

Great shots of the sky - moody!

Gaelyn said...

What a pleasant treat. Nice series of photos.

Jeanne said...

Isn't it amazing how the sky can look different season to season. Always something new to offer. Beautiful.

marley said...

Very calm but still striking.

Bobbie: A very nice capture for sure as the sky progressed to night.

SandyCarlson said...

I am glad you took the time to capture these. They are beautiful.

Carletta said...

I so love that first one! My eye is drawn to the white swirling-like cloud in the center.
Very beautiful!

Leedra said...

Beautiful skies, great skywatch post.

The Sky Watch intrigues me. Yesterday I saw Watery Wednesday. It's a good way to focus on a post, without having to think of too many options. Nice photos by the way.

Coloradolady said...

great sky shots. the gray sky looks like it is cold there. Have a great week.

Jim said...

Very pretty sunset you found. Isn't it nice to have your camera around all the time ready for these goodies.
Bobbie, do we get to vote on your profile pictures? I liked the 'forever' little girl child you used to have the best so far. I got to recognizing that one.
Thank you for peeking in, I liked looking at the fog and dew too.
Happy SkyWatching!

Wonderful photos! I wish we'd have a few gray and cloudy days here in Phoenix a little more often-we sure enjoy those gloomy days over constant sunshine! Sounds terrible, but true!

Dianne said...

I love dark gray skies!!

Doesn't if look like there's a giant cross statue at the horizon in the first shot!!

Tootie said...

Very pretty soft colors in your photo.

Indrani said...

Wow! Nice series of shots. The last few minutes of sun set happens very quickly, and suddenly it is dark.

Titania said...

A great way to say good bye to the day. A little blue and gold ribbons before all is swallowed up by the night. I love your photos they are very poetic.

Greyscale Territory said...

Lovely pale colours stubbornly surviving the looming darkness! Beautiful!

nana said...

Bleu, grey, red,... the sky is beautiful in any season.

Maria said...

I love your sky pictures, they are really great!

marina said...

It seems that we had the same sky these days...

Pagan Sphinx said...

I find the 'isthmus' shaped cloud connecting the two larger clumps in the first photo very interesting. Happy Skywatch Friday.

Naturegirl said...

Bobbie all images are striking however it's the first that is so expressive!

Jan said...

I love the progression of your shots. You have to capture the sunsets when they're there, they disappear so fast. Wonderful photos.

Shelly said...

I love how the clouds look like ribbons in the second and third photos.

GardenAuthor said...

Great sunset sequence... love the progression to dusk and the softer, more muted tones of this season./Deb

storyteller said...

Wonderful captures! Methinks variety is wonderful ... especially when it comes to skies.
Hugs and blessings,

Anil P said...

Do the tones change from day to day in the winter?

Kay said...

Yae, Bobbie! These are a great series of Sky Watch photos! Have a great weekend.

Kay said...

These are all really remarkable shots. I love all the clouds and their unique shapes.

Mike said...

Beautiful strokes.

Cliff said...

Great sky pics bobbie. It's a cold November sky in Nebraska as well. brrr
also: I didn't know Lisa would put up curtains. I'm supposed to do that today so I'm going to see if I can hire Lisa to do it for me.

Webradio said...

Beautiful skies always here...

Louise said...

They ARE beautiful. There is something about the quality of light in cold weather that is uniqute and beautiful.

Kathiesbirds said...

Bobbie, as long as you can see and appreciate this beauty you are alive in more ways than one! Just lovely!
