Looking Westerly, Looking Easterly/Sky Watch

I was concentrating on the sunset so hard, that I was surprised when I...
...turned around to see that the sky was lit up in the east as well. How's that for a pleasant surprise?

That sort of sunset happened here a while ago... to the west, nothing; to the east, the reflection on the clouds was stunning! Great colours in your pictures.

Dewdrop said...

I love it when the sunset swallows you up and surrounds you! That is incredible... I love the cumulonimbus that was behind you. Wow. I bet it had some cloud to cloud lightning.

Gorgeous photos!

Willard said...

One needs more surprises like that!
Excellent job as always!

I liked your previous post about sunflowers as well. I used to grow them until I was somewhere in my late 20s and then quit until this year, when I decided to plant a few rows--mostly just so I could enjoy seeing them once again on a daily basis.

Carver said...

Those are both so beautiful and dreamy. I'm glad you turned around and caught the surprise view.

Marie said...

Good job! When I'm outside taking sunset photos, I always have to remind myself to turn around and look at what the sunset light is shining on in the East.

I don't know how I missed this one before on my rounds. This is really nice.

My blog post for Sky Watch is on my Canon Pixels and if you have any spare time I would appreciate it if you could take a look at the sun peeking through the oak tree leaves.

Thanks.
