Skywatch Friday.....

These photos were taken just after 7am on Wednesday March 25th. Within fifteen minutes the pink clouds were all gone and it was a dark overcast sky. It didn't actually start to rain until around 4pm that day. Those pink clouds were so unusual and so pretty.

These pictures have reminded me that it's been a long time since I've seen the sun setting. I'm never out in the evenings these days.

Thanks for stopping over earlier and have a great weekend!

What beautiful colours you have captured Gill. WIth the pink so deep you must have thought it was going to rain all day.
