Surreal Skies

December 29, 2013  •  9 Comments

We are fortunate to have an amazing view of winter sunsets from our porch.  I can remember a few evenings that were extraordinarily beautiful, but nothing as colorful as the show we had last night.  Scroll down and experience a 15 minute span of changing beauty...

 

5:13pm (it starts out looking like just a 'nice' sunset, nothing too special yet)

6:13pm

 

5:16pm (there were so many cloud patterns reflecting the gold)

 

We had some good friends staying over...so I tried a few silhouette shots.

 

This one's got potential as a cover for a 1980s love ballad montage...

 

...'It Was the Winter of 2013' (the sequel to the Summer of '69)

 

5:19pm (getting some good purple tones now)

 

5:19 (zooming into the golds and purples...)

 

5:22pm (and then pinks...)

 

5:23pm (...then...in the span of 1 minute...it just got plain re-donkulous (as the kids say))

 

Karina was snapping photos too...

 

5:24pm (starting to break up...)

 

5:26pm (three rays peaked out through the pink waves of cloud)

 

5:27pm (the blue sky starts to peak through)

 

We all couldn't believe it...what a surreal sky.

 

And then it was time for dinner...so the fading sunset got trumped.

Mmmm...homemade curry...I can still taste it.

Double Wowza!
