Blue and Pink Overhead...

This is a Blue Monday Post hosted
by Sally, at the Smiling Sally Blog.
Thanks, dear friend, for your faithfulness
in posting, commenting and hosting this
weekly party.

I did not enhance these photos.
This pink was fading to gray so
quickly as I raced to capture it.
But, even so, you can see the pink
in the white cloud.

After a good day together as a family
at church and then with friends at a
park we headed home as the skies changed
constantly overhead.
Unfortunately I had no camera with me
so rushed into the house immediately
to grab it and then I ran down the road
for a better view.

The evening was coming on so quickly and the
light fading into this amazing blue hue.

It made it nearly impossible to get clear
pictures as the shutter stayed open so
long. A tripod would have helped a lot.
But, I loved this shot
of the blue, moon, trees
and clouds!
Fuzzy and all.

Hi Becky,
I love gazing at clouds and you captured these beautifully! I’m always grabbing anyone in earshot to come view a glorious sunset before it’s lost.

I kept mentioning how beautiful the sky was last evening to Belinda at McDonald's. We took the kids for 59 cent cheeseburgers.

I just love October skies!

All your pictures are stunning. You are right, by the time you get your camera ready, the cloud formations have changed. You did really well on your blue Monday showing.

Hi Becky! What a beautiful sky! The colors in the cloud were so beautiful and the photo of the early night sky looks like a painting.
