SkyWatch Friday: Just After the Sun Sets

Softly the evening came.
The sun from the western horizon
like a magician extended his golden wand over the landscape. . .

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I shot this beautiful sky about a week ago just after the sun set behind the little hill in the distance.

When I signed on, there were almost 200 other bloggers participating in SkyWatch Friday. Last week, over 3oo eventually signed up! You can check out the sky around the world by clicking here.

Isn't it amazing how beautiful the sky can be right after a sunset?

Cool photo! It took me awhile to realize that it's not mountains in the background but clouds making the shapes of mountains.

To respond to your question, the photo was taken with an iPhone.

Nice photo, Chris.

I have been dealing with rheumatoid arthritis in my hands. The chemotherapy drug doesn't stop the pain so my typing is limited.
