Unexpected November Sunset Part 1

 November 21 started out looking as though we would have our average sunset.  It was cold, and with a circulatory issue I have with my hands and feet, I asked my spouse to take pictures with his iPhone SE 3rd edition so I wouldn't have to take my gloves off.

Once I got out of work, it was sunset time.  My spouse and I headed to the local park where we do a lot of our evening skywatchings.

We started around the walking track.

The sun was already dipping below the horizon of nearby hills.  We weren't holding out that much hope for a special sunset

But now, there was a hint of what was to come, as the sky started to color up.

I looked back at the east, and saw a reverse sunset.

I saw the sky colors rapidly changing.

As I looked back at where the sun had set, I suspected the best was yet to come.

To be continued....

  5. Oh wow, look at those sunset shots. The early shots are great but the later ones are spectacular!! Hooray for the Iphone SE. That's what I use.

  6. Very pretty. (Allegedly, there is a thread that can make it so touch screens work when you're wearing gloves. I have yet to see this magical thing work yet.)

  7. That is absolutely gorgeous. Carol C

  8. You beautifully captured the sky going through so many changes as the day ended. Love those final pink shots.
