Disappearing Clouds/Sky Watch

From a ridge overlooking East Gwillimbury

A couple of Saturdays ago, the sky looked promising for a pretty sunset but the clouds were disappearing quickly, which is very common on very cold evenings. Luckily a few clouds stayed around long enough to catch the last rays of the sun.

A couple of minutes later

The color is amazing -- I'm glad you were able to stand the cold for a couple of minutes longer because it is lovely to see the changes from the first to the second.
