We have had a variety of sky watching opportunities in late March and early April.
We've had everything from sun to rain to tornado warnings.
Fortunately the tornadoes didn't form.
I didn't used to take tornadoes seriously because I thought they were so rare in central NC where I live.
By that, I don't mean that I would be foolhardy but I never thought a tornado would be a concern where I live.
However, over the past 20 years there have been tornado hits in Raleigh, NC where I live as well as places near by.
I still think it's fairly remote that I'll be hit by a tornado but I pay more attention to the warnings.
I seem to catch at least a couple of good sunsets a week.
Ironically I almost missed the sunset tonight while preparing this post.
That has happened to me before.
I'll be writing about the sunset and realize that if I turn around I might catch one.
I have double windows in my den where my computer is but I face away from the window when I'm on my computer.
Since I am usually able to work from home on my computer if I was facing the windows which have a view of my deck and sky, I'd be too distracted by the birds if my desk went the other way.
I usually photograph the sunset from my bedroom window because it shows more of the sky without obstruction from my neighbor's house.
Starting with 3 shots above and continuing to the next to the last shot, I photographed the sky on April 1 when I had a meeting in Durham, NC.
I always allow too much time to drive to Durham for meetings which means I have time for a photo shoot.
I was very early but was almost late making it to the meeting because I became distracted by spring time ready for my camera.
I was on time for the meeting but only by a few minutes.
For me arriving two minutes ahead of time feels late since I'm usually sitting in the conference room for at least 5 minutes before anyone else arrives.
