Skywatch Friday: Autumn Sunset



It's been such a long time since I've joined Skywatch Friday! My daughter was sitting at the kitchen table doing her homework earlier this week, when she called out to me to look at the sunset.

Wow. This has been such a colorful autumn -- beautiful leaves and skies, too. I can't help feeling like it's a great last hurrah before the cold and colorless winter to come. :(

Please take a moment to visit all the wonderful images at Skywatch Friday.

I find it that late, leaveless autumn is less colorful then full bloom white winter.

I like your watermark as much as the sunset. Yours is the only one I've ever seen that doesn't annoy me to no end. Great idea, I'll have to work out one for myself. Have a great weekend.

My daughter's always running outside to see & take pictures of the sunset, too. Beautiful. I like the way you caught the single leaf at the tip of the branch. It really captures the time of year.
