I hope everybody is enjoying a fine Sky Watch Friday !

I shot this several weeks ago when we still had a lot of smoke in the air from the multitude of forest fires that were burning in California -- hence the redness of the shot...

Brilliant colors Don. I guess the smoke was good for something after all.

Have you noticed particularly lurid sunsets since the Aleutian eruption a short while back ? I suppose with the fires you would not have seen a difference.

Great shot! Too bad that all that smoke actually makes some very pretty sunsets.

Most often the best sunrises and sunsets are the result of fire. I wish they weren't often so devastating. Beautiful capture.

Powerful sky with splendid colors!

That's so lovely - hate to think about the fires, though.

I like the vivid colors and stormy look of the sun.
We have frequent fall fires and attendant red... very red sunrises and sunsets. Until you've seen one, it's hard to believe they could be so dramatic. Nice shooting.

Too bad for the forest! That's regrettable to lose so many trees in a few hours! We get somez fires each years in the South of France.

The fire and the grey smoke accentuate the colors of your sunset, I imagine it is far more impressive for real! With the smell, and maybe the heat.

Nice sunset, but I absolutely adore your wet sand!

That orange is really striking. Sorry that it meant that you had to endure fires.

Ces said...

Oh my, you can see the darkened smoked clouds too. It's amazing how disasters can create the most gorgeous skies.
