Skywatch Friday

Last Sunset of Summer 2015
I've always been a fan of sunrise and sunset photos.  The other day, about 6:30 p.m. I noticed that the sky looked like a great sunset was going to happen, so I grabbed my gear and headed to a local lake where I knew I could get a good view of the sunset.  Between 7:15 and 7:30 p.m. this happened.  I am told that the closer we get to the seasonal equinox the quicker the sunset happens and I believe it.  Farewell summer 2015.

 First Autumn Sunrise 2015
I got up this morning around 6:30 to get ready to go the the gym and as I headed into the kitchen I noticed a colorful glow coming through the window.  I looked outside and knew that a special sunrise was about to happen.  Again, I grabbed my gear and drove a few blocks to the gym.  Across the street from the community building is a farm that has escaped local development and a pastoral image is still possible to capture.  By 7:05 a.m. this is what I saw.  I don't know if the early bird gets the worm, but I do know that he gets to see some of God's best "Good morning" greetings.  Have a blessed week-end.
