Skywatch Friday - Drama of the Clouds

Today, for Skywatch Friday, I decided to show a sunset from two different angles.

I live in upstate New York, near a park which runs alongside the Susquehanna River.  Sometimes, I like to take walks at sunset to watch the sun set.
Last Sunday, this is what the sunset looked like.  At this time of year, the clouds look so dramatic.

But after I moved a few hundred feet, and took a shot from another angle,  I managed to pick up more clouds and some fall foliage.

Yesterday, we had our first snow.  By the time I was able to take a picture, the snow had melted.  Alas, it is only the first of what may well be many snowfalls here on the edge of the New York State snow belt.

Happy fall, or spring, depending on where you live, and visit the Skywatch Friday website to see clouds, sunrises, and sunsets from all over the world.
