Eastern sky at sunset

I sometimes leave the YMCA at sunset time, and enjoy the view to the west of the facility.  But last week, I was awed by the color in the clouds of the eastern sky, opposite a nice but not unusual sunset in the west. The clouds were lit, making beautiful mixtures of pinks, lavenders, and blues. Here are several of the photos I took, made large for your viewing pleasure. I've printed out copies to make into cards. I'm also wondering if the photo could be repeated and manipulated in a way to make an interesting design for fabric. I'm doing a Photoshop course online that includes guidance on the process, so I may give it a try.


  1. That was certainly a sight to behold. What colors and textures!! Thanks for sharing your experience.

  2. Wow! Gorgeous! I especially like the ones that show a piece of the sun.
