Final Glow/ Sky Watch

Star in the west going down over East Gwillimbury

And nobody seemed to notice! Perhaps they were all inside getting ready to watch the evening news.

My eye goes straight to that lovely bit of red coming up over the black trees.

This is far better than anything the evening news might offer. Certainly more intelligent and thought provoking.

Beautiful red glow. I can't imagine being inside when all this glory is outside. Super shot. Look at those heavy dark clouds too. MB

Lovely!

Jacob said...

To notice, one has to look. And for many of our contemporaries, the only thing they see are the numbers on their cell phones or iPods!

Love shot!

Rose said...

EG, this is absolutely wonderful!

judi said...

Great Catch. Reminds me of a forest fire at sunset.

BJ Roan said...

I fear Jacob is right. This is a scene too beautiful to miss.

Stunning, dramatic colors! Gorgeous shot! Fire in the sky -- that's my kind of sunset! Have a great weekend!

Mojo said...

It took a minute to figure out that the clouds were clouds and not mountains and that the sun was the sun and not a fire in the forest!

Really gorgeous!

I have never seen a sky as red as that, that is truly beautiful and I envy you the moment, wonderful shot.

Thanks for the visit, it was not ice but a twisted obelisk sculpture outside the O2 Dome in London.

Have a great weekend, wishing you many more sunsets like this!

The red sunset reminded me of the old saying:

Red sun at night, farmer's delight,
Red sun at morning, farmers take warning.

Beautiful shot.

Martha in PA said...

What a beautiful sunset. I miss the sunset most evenings here in our new home, as it is blocked by trees very close to our patio. I need to go out for a walk more often at that time!
