SkyWatch Friday - Over Camberwell Station

I was walking home from work on Tuesday when I found this sky just outside the office door.  I only had my compact with me – it lives in my bag, but it does not get a huge amount of use.  One of the problems with its under use is that I had to spend about 5 minutes working out how to turn off the “underwater” settings! (I’d last used while snorkelling!)  After a bit of inspired guess work I worked it out!
So these shots are taken from the rail bridge in Camberwell.  Dozens of people walked past me as I was taking the picture – and as far as I know most of them did not seem to notice the sky.  The one person who spoke to me worked in the local book shop – which is a reasonable predictor of being a decent human being if you ask me!
Somehow this post has strayed away from skies and entered the realms of psychological profiling – I think it’s time to call it a day and post the post!
You can find more skies at SkyWatch Friday.
You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking on the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the page.
Enjoy the skies.

Those skies are amazing. Such glorious colours. How on earth could people walk by without marvelling at all that beauty?

Bravo for overcoming technical challenges to capture that most wonderful of sunset photos. I can imagine you celebrating your good fortune to make such a find right outside your workplace, and at the end of the day when you could fully enjoy it.
