The sky at night., a rare sight.

Where I live the sky at night is not normally as spectacular as last night. In fact, I can't ever remember seeing such a brilliant sunset in my part of the world.
It was so unusual it was even mentioned on television's weather forecast.





an interesting formation

In the distance I saw this aeroplane


Second time around!
I tried to get a clearer picture but the plane was just too far away.

Super sky pictures Valerie, that pink is really beautiful.

Sorry about the links but I don't know what to do about them now. I've been letting people know about the hide button in settings but not sure what to do in your case when that doesn't work. I think the cyber gremlins are playing a little joke on us :(

Absolutely amazing colours. Well done. It's not always easy to capture the brilliant shades that "wow" us as the sun rises or sets. I always feel graced to witness the brilliance let alone get an awesome shot or two. You got some great one!!

It's weird, but I've also noticed that the night sky is being particularly beautiful these past few days. Is it something in the air? If so, then more of it, please! :-)

Valerie said...

Mel, you're right, I was lucky that the camera didn't distort the colours.

Valerie said...

Hi Ron, wasn't the colour BRILLIANT? Living at the back of the house I could well have missed the colourful spectacle. I'm so glad I have the computer in the front room.

Valerie said...

Faye, thank you. The sky made me feel I lived in an exotic place... oh well, back to earth I go... grins.

Valerie said...

Pearl, we'll never know about that plane. It stood out against the red sky even though it was miles and miles away.

Brian, it was a real treat to see such a lovely sky.

Mona, thank you. You can tell I'm still practising with the camera.

Valerie said...

Denise, I hadn't read about the 'hide' button in settings ... will go and investigate.

Beautiful colors. I love this time of the day, especially when the colors are this bold and vibrant.

Hi Mersad, I believe I left a similar comment on your blog. The drawing in of evening can be quite magical, enhanced by a beautiful sky.
