A Winter Sunset

As you know...I love me a pink sunset.  The evening of Feb 6th there was some beautiful clouds in the sky and I was hoping they would turn pink as the sun went down....so off I went on the hunt.

taken at the end of my road. a slight pink tinge,  but more orange. sun not quite down yet.
nice wispy mare's tails though

a few miles away I stopped at the crest of this hill. a bit more pink but the sun wasn't down far enough yet. still a lovely sight. here I am looking west...of course

take note to the road and follow it clear through the shot to the where it disappears. That's where I stop and look back toward the east and see this. 

It always amazes me that you get more of the alpen glow effect to the east of a sunset.

Next week I'll show you the end of the sunset in the western sky.

Linking with SKYWATCH FRIDAY

Stop over and visit Yogi, Sylvia and Sandy to see great skies from around the world.

Phenomenal sky photos Felicia, a wonderful transition of color. That last photo where you show the eastern part of the sky is gorgeous. I learned this a few years ago at the Grand Canyon. I couldn't understand why all the tourists were staring in the opposite direction to the sunset, and then I saw the same as you. It was incredible. I look forward to seeing your end of sunset photos.

Absolutely stunning displays of beauty. Love the colors in the landscapes as well as the lone roads and houses dotted through the snowy fields.

What a beautiful sunset Felicia!
I love the orange ones, they warm my heart :)The pink ones are nice too, but I don't like pink as a colour :))
Have a fine day

Nice progression of color through the various photos! Such idyllic scenes with those snowy rolling hills, I haven't noticed many winter sunsets here, but we're in a nice sunrise phase right now, so I'm trying to keep vigilant in the early morning.

I wonder what artist colored your sky :)
Valerie said…

Totally gorgeous sunset in all it's various stages Felicia.. Winter sunsets are particularly lovely.
Debby Ray said…
Awesome shots and I LOVE your new header. I noticed what looked like a contrail. This seems very strange that we could see the same sky on the same night in our two different locations...I was in middle TN and the sky that night was amazing AND full of contrails. After the sun was below the horizon, the sky turned bright pink and the brightest pink contrail arose into the deep blue sky. I haven't gotten all of my photos off yet but will post some later. Of course there was no snow to add to the beauty :(

Very nice. I too love the different ways the camera picks up the light in sunsets depending on the direction you have it pointed.
