Skywatch Friday – Colorful Skies


We had some color in the sky the other day so I fired up the drone and sent it up from the back yard. The color was not to the west because there were no clouds. The above shot is to the north.


This is to the east.


And northeast across the greenbelt.

I am thinking about the victims of Hurricane Laura which made landfall early Thursday morning in southwest Louisiana and is still causing damage far inland as I write this.

    I love that bright pink sky! Your drone is such an asset in obtining such beautiful photos

    Our skies have been filled with smoke from the Colorado and California wildfires all week. We’ve been staying inside with air conditioning because of that.

    PS: Hatch chiles probably have been around for a long time but only achieved their *star status* in recent years as an advertizing ploy. Colorado is trying to get their “Pueblo chiles” to compete with them

    I like reverse sunsets. This is a nice study; I find sometimes the color is actually better in the reverse direction, too. I’ve never had to shelter from a hurricane but have been caught in a couple of floods caused by tropical storms. A high school friend who lives in Florida has sheltered through several hurricanes; she says it is a terrifying experience, especially the one where she was also undergoing radiation treatments.

    Alan – is that color real? Wow! The closest I have ever been to a hurricane was a tropical storm, and a weak one at that!
