Serenaded By An Autumn Sky

4.20 p.m.

I really didn't think I'd post today. But as I went about
the usual business of watering my plants, the western
horizon started to unveil its symphony of colours...

4.35

The softest of hues...the palest of pales....

4.46

A swirling concoction of orange...

4.47

The faintest tinges trailed towards infinity...

4.48

An orange dream fades...

4.56

When did the etchings turn to ink?

5.01

The stars are out--strips of gossamer clouds still float on a
darkening sky. When you're serenaded by an autumn sky, how
can you NOT post?!

Mildred, always lovely to read your thoughts...literally!

Carla, hope I'll be able to capture such scenes from time to time!

That's right, Tina. And everything changes so fast!

Joy, thank you so much! But soon after I'd posted mine, I saw yours and I thought they looked stunning!
I haven't shot such scenes lately.

Thanks for dropping by.

Lovely photos and poetic descriptions. If everyone stopped to notice the sky at least once a day, the world would be a more peaceful place, I bet. Thanks for being one of the noticers!

What a poetic post today Kanak. Your sky photos are lovely with their ribbons of color & texture.

Those autumn skies were definitely singing to you Kanak. You did a great job of being the audience. Sometimes it's nice just to sit back and let your surroundings talk to you. Glad you took a moment to listen and share.

Those wispy clouds look so delicate, as if a slight breeze would blow them away. Beautiful photos of a gorgeous time of day.
