Johanna goes to sleep - SkyWatch Friday

These images were taken over a 30 minute period as the sun was setting over Johanna beach. It was a windy evening so the clouds were being pushed through and the sky kept changing. Only saw one other person and they were taking photographs as well. All in all it was a splendid way to watch the day settle down for the night.













You can find more pictures of the sky at SkyWatch Friday.

Enjoy the skies!

I do enjoy those sky shots, they are an amazing series! When I saw the first one, I thought "that has to be my favorite", with the sky's reflection in the wet sand. But then I saw the second, and the others. All are great, but 1,2 and 5 are stunning!

BTW, this Johanna is going to sleep now too, as it is almost midnight here in the UK :-)

Wow..........stunning. I especially liked the one [I think it was the 3rd one down from top?!!] where the mist of the sea reaches upward and the cliffs in the backdrop.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.

Thanks for your visit! I like your words:
