SkyWatch Friday: Second week of November

We had a stunning sunset after a gray and rainy day.

Sometimes the best sunsets occur when the sun doesn't come out until it's around sundown.

The pink sky below was in the northeast part of the sky while the dramatic bands of color were southwest where the sun was setting.

This time of the year seems to be a good time for dramatic skies.

I love how vivid the colors are.

The helicopter flew past my window while I was watching the colorful sunset.

We still have a lot of colorful leaves although many are dropping now.

I caught a moon sliver in the late afternoon one day.

I like to look at the lake through branches.

I think the leaves almost look like polka dots in the next shot.

Below is the afternoon moon several days after the one I showed earlier in this post.

This sky watch post looks like the sky has been mostly blue but that's misleading.

I've taken more shots on the sunnier days or the parts of the day when the rain stops and we get some clearer skies.

I did take quite a few shots Tuesday when it was overcast.

The colorful leaves below brighten up the sky and water tower.

As the branches become naked I think they lend a gothic atmosphere to photography.

The church bell tower was playing peekaboo below.

You got some amazing colors in the sunset shots, but then blue skies have a charm of their own.

Beautiful colors -- sky and what's under it! The sunset was fabulous. I've noticed when we're in Oregon that a grayish day can have a beautiful sunset ... it's almost as if the sun gives its all at its last gasp!
