Just wanted to share…

One evening this week I was taken aback by the beautiful light and color I saw in the sky.  After running an errand to the grocery store, on what had been an unremarkable, cloudy sort of day, I saw the trees across the street from the store lit up by a gorgeous light, but the light was almost “cut off” at the top if you can imagine what I mean.  Looking toward the west, a dark cloud cut a horizontal line across the sky, but the great, golden orb of the sun was sinking just below that line.  I admired the amazing, golden color before me as I drove home from the market and hoped there would still be some nice color for me to photograph when I got home.

When I got home, color had changed but it was still beautiful.  Surrounded as I am by the things of suburbia, I have no clear view of sunset and the horizon, but I was able to capture these shots.  I haven’t adjusted anything in Photoshop; these are SOOC using my 50mm 1.8 lens.






I’ve never been a big fan of November: no leaves, no flowers, No-vember; however, this colorful sky was a lovely exception to a normally colorless month!


  1. I love magical sunsets too !

    • A pretty sunset is a good excuse for stepping back and taking it all in – if only for a moment.

  2. Your colored skies are especially welcome in what has been a series of very gray days. I haven’t noticed the lack of color in November in previous years, but it’s been slam-dunk in my face this year!

    • Glad you liked them Carol. Today is dawning gray and colorless as I type this, so we must enjoy that color while we can!

    • Brown is usually the only color November likes to share with me, so I felt pretty lucky to see this! Thanks Robin.

  4. I saw that sky and took some photos as well. I even got a rainbow when facing east. So beautiful. My sister calls November Stick Season.

    • Stick season indeed! Will you be posting your rainbow picture?

  5. Wonderful! Aren’t those evenings just the best no matter what month they happen in. But they are especially wonderful when it’s been so drab.

  6. These are beautiful! I don’t have a clear view of the sunset (or sunrise) either….and can’t be bothered to go somewhere to photograph it. Those are the few times I wish we lived out in the country.

    • Thanks Michaela. I’ve tried driving short distances for a better view of such things, but it isn’t easy to come by.

    • Thank you Kate – I wish I could have had my camera in hand to show the beautiful gold I saw too!
