Skywatch Friday - Silver Sky

The sun was on its downward journey as we drove into the city and it was that magic moment, a few minutes before the sky would start to take on the red and orange hues of sunset. I was in the passenger seat and here was an opportunity not to be missed. I quickly opened the window and took a few shots as we passed some trees along Cape Road. The only suggestion that this picture was taken in the city is the street lamp, trying to blend in with the stem of a tree.


More sky pictures from around the world can be seen at the Skywatch site.

Lovely sunset posted today. The next image down is amazing especially how you captured the eye and the open beak. Nice going!

Beautiful sky. I headed out for the sunset last night and as I lined up my first shot my batteries went.

A most dramatic shot and zoo are a wonder to cut out the city while photographing from a moving vehicle.

Beautiful play of light round these stunning cloud shapes. And love the drama of the silhouettes.

A striking image you've captured here!

Often I too prefer being the passenger just so I can take photos along the way.
