Posting two weeks Sky Watch in one!

As a few of you know, we just got back last week from a little vacation...if I had had my wits about me I would have posted these first five photos then. They are from the sunrise on our outward journey. Not too bad for taking through a windshield going about 60 mph.




Again from our trip, but these last photos show the sunset on our return journey. Again while moving right along down the highway.



I hope these post...I notice I am getting an Error message saying that the autosave failed, so who knows if this will post at all. I tried to put a badge for skywatch on here but that failed also.
If you want to join all us skywatchers, go to the Sky Watch Friday Blog and throw your name in the mix.

I am just going to go ahead and see if this will post....I normally don't post till right before the link page opens at 2:30...our time. Now I am wondering just how much trouble I am going to have to get this posted.

Just beautiful collection you have here. The color is very dramatic. I have to go back to see if you did say sunrise and you did. What a fantastic coloration for a sunrise.

Happy skywatching.

Carletta said...

I have a sunset this week I'll post a little later.

I think you must wash your windshield every 5 minutes or so. I don't see any dead bugs. ;-) Nice photos, Rose. Happy Sky Watch!

Roses and Lilacs said...

Rose, you sound just like me. I was so frustrated with blogger last Monday! Anyway, your photos look great.

Rose: What a neat set of photos going and coming home. I really like the yellows in the return trip.

Leedra said...

Great photographs from a moving car.

Yes, I am very familiar with Cumberland Gap. I am probably 1 1/2 hours from it now. But I used to have responsibilities for the phone central office in Cumberland Gap (supervisor) along with all the other towns for MILES around it (south of it, not into KY). Love to see the fall colors from the top of the mountain there.

Coloradolady said...

What wonderful shots. The colors are terrific. We don't see many skys that color here.

Max-e said...

Hi Rose, sometimes the best shots are taken in the most difficult circunstances. Nice series.

Quiet Paths said...

This is a great idea - going and coming home. We did this in part this summer when we came back from the ocean but ended up with crazy family shots with us all worn out looking. I love the colors in both sets. We just don't get that here too much.

Tammy said...
