For SWF--the sun going down

These photos are supposed to enlarge when clicked.
These really are best viewed when enlarged...you don't appreciate the sun until they are enlarged.
Sorry to post so many photos, but it was hard enough to cut the number down to these.
This is from Tuesday evening's ramble out to the strip pit area...I had to post that very first photo cause you can definitely see one of the many dragonflies that were out that evening.
The rest just show the setting of the sun....
as the clouds slowly cover it up...
followed by a couple or three of after the event.

To join SWF, please go to the Sky Watch Friday Blog. I know I am posting this even earlier than normal, but I am figuring I am going to have to reload some of the photos till they will enlarge. Almost every night I have reload at least one, especially if I have more than three photos. Also, I have started getting a lot of spammers commenting, so I am starting to moderate my posts again. I really hope that that will stop them but who knows.

Love this series! Each change is simply more beauty!

Ramblings of a Villas Girl said...

These are beautiful and I am glad you but on as many as you did.

I find that when you load pictures, if you rearrange the order while composing, they will not enlarge. I now write the order I want my pictures (last picture first and so on) and load them that way.

Neal said...

Rose, those are gorgeous, especially if you enlarge them.

Patty said...

Oh my those are so beautiful. I never see sunsets like that. Your lucky to get that beauty.

Craver Vii said...

Oh, these are so good! Definitely worth clicking on (enlarging) and taking my sweet time. Beauties, Rose!
