Sunset for Skywatch Friday


Yesterday eve I was standing by the kitchen sink taking my evening medications when I looked out the window and saw the sunset hues above the tops of our driveway trees. It was definitely an invitaion from Mother Nature to grab my camera and go out for an early evening stroll. It was just before nine and the street lights were just coming on. I only walked as far as the railroad crossing. It was a beautiful evening for a walk at the end of another hot summer day.

My appreciative thanks to Sandy, Klaus, Ivar, Wren and Fishing Guy for hosting Sky Watch
Friday .

Same here, I typed it in. I don't see purple hardly at all here, that bottom shot is lovely. With the tracks and lights it is a good moody shot.

What marvelous colors Ann. I see you have railroad tracks right down the center of the street too. How lucky can one get IF you are a rail fan like we are.
Happy SWF.
