Red Sky at Night

Today, on day 12 of NaBloPoMo, I face a quieter than normal internet, as many writers compete with themselves during National Novel Writing Month to write 50,000 words in 30 days.

This year, for the first time in four years, I am not one of them.  I decided I was not going to stress myself out with my various responsibilities, especially as I have never touched any of those three NaNoWriMo manuscripts.
Instead, I am out taking pictures of sunsets.  We've had warmer than normal weather and my iPhone 4s captured much of the beauty of the sky. 

There is a saying "Red sky at night, sailors delight."  You decide.
These pictures were all taken in the past week, in my neighborhood near Johnson City, New York. I love the streaks of color in this one.
How about the sun setting over a pile of leaves?
And finally, one more "sky on fire".
The sunsets this month have been so incredible. So I will leave you one more - silhouettes.

Maybe next year, I'll actually touch one of my manuscripts. This year, I'm enjoying the beauty of nature.

Are you participating in NaNoWriMo this year?


  1. I am not doing NaNoWriMo (never have). Sounds like you made a great decision for yourself and I enjoyed the sunset pics!

  2. those skies are beautiful - the pinks and purples are glorious!

  3. Thank you for sharing these beautiful sunsets! Connecting with nature is often very healing. It's a good reminder for me to get off the computer more.

  4. Beautiful pictures. Every sunset is a soulful experience.

  5. I love a good sunset, your photos are beautiful.

  6. Now I've got that '80s song stuck in my head...

    Nope, not doing NaNo. I never do.

  7. I love pictures of sunrises and sunsets and you seem to have such beautiful ones around you. Enjoy!

  8. Those are some gorgeous clicks, Alana. I could just look at that beautiful red sky forever. :) Yep, I am doing both NaBloPoMO and NaNoWriMo. :)

  9. AM glad you did not do the Nablo. Cos, the sunset pics are just awesome. Hey Alana, why don't you start a blog where you can showcase the photos you've clicked. You write amazing narratives for such pics posted. loved it.
