SkyWatch Friday ~ Autumn evening

I was sitting at the window table answering emails last evening when I looked up and saw a beautiful sunset evolving.
It was a beautiful evening for a walk, 18*C and calm.  From the dune the northeast sky was just starting to colour and a loon was calling from the ocean.
I walked through the forest to the road to witness the last of the setting sun.
From the dark the sound of geese and sandhill cranes lingered on the air....migration has started.
A walk back to the dunes through a neighbours property offered this wonderful view and the view below is the view in front of the cabin.  (For more detail click on photos, especially the bottom one, to see the whale eye!)
For more wonderous skies from around the world why not join us at

What a beautiful evening - perfect for taking a walk - emails can wait!

What a wonderful spot you have to watch the sunset. To see the sunset at Mono Lake I must drive 20 miles. The environmentalist in me is reluctant to do that, the photographer always wants to see.

How wonderful to have a short walk to the beach and these beautiful sunsets. Love the eye of the whale driftwood sculpture.

Beautiful sky shots, Carolyn. I especially like the bottom one with the drift wood in the foreground.

How is your cabin coming along? Well, I will look back into your posts to see what I can find out. :)

Unbelievably beautiful photography, Caroline, just stunning!

I looked up the other day to see what was casting a shadow against the trees. It was two sandhill cranes...birds which fascinate me!

It's getting quite cold at night here. Sunsets are quite amazing...there must still be smoke particles in the air.

I'm glad you got up to take a walk. You've built a beautiful little cabin, by the way!

You have described the evening so perfectly, both in words and photos.

I can see why you were drawn irresistably outside on such an evening.
