SkyWatch Friday: Another Single Day

Last week I showed you the skies of a single day.
I decided to do the same thing this week.
The day I picked didn't have much of a sunrise but the moon setting at day break was lovely and so were the clouds.
I took a lot of sky shots during a lunch break walk in downtown Durham, NC.
The sky was changing fast during my walk.
I like photographing the sky and scenery in the winter when the trees are bare.
 I have a fascination with railroad tracks.
 I like the way the modern building peaks up through the older buildings.
 The weather vane in the shot below appealed to me even though I could barely see it.
The red benches pop out amidst the increasingly gray sky.
Although I like to work from home in Raleigh, NC I also enjoy having different photo opportunities during breaks when I go to the office in Durham.
I had a long break between meetings after I finished up some work on a computer in the office building.
 I like the mix of styles in the architecture.
The sky added to the drama of the Durham Auditorium below.
 I couldn't have asked for more from the sky.
 There's a new building going up in the shot below.
There wasn't much of a sunset that evening but we did get a little snow that night.
 I think it almost looks like a shower of stars.
