Skywatch 2009!

I have never participated in Skywatch Friday before, but when I saw this beautiful evening sky, I knew I finally had an entry.


A few weeks ago I picked Rose up at the Indianapolis airport on her return from Phoenix where she visited her daughter and had the opportunity to visit some lovely places.


We stopped to get cup of coffee and something to eat and when we came out of the restaurant, we were treated to this lovely sunset. Both of us grabbed for our cameras!

She graciously let me take the pictures to use on my post. Thanks Rose!

Wow Beckie, these are stunning.

Rose said...

I had forgotten about this, Beckie--it was such a gorgeous sunset that night, wasn't it? It was the perfect ending to my trip, having the chance to catch up on all the news with you before starting on the holiday rush. You got some great shots!

Susie said...

Indiana has some of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. It pays to keep a camera with you at all times. Great capture!

Those photos are indeed lovely. Isn't central Illinois on the way to St. Louis?! ;-) Maybe you've wanted to go to MOBOT yourself!! ??

You gals captured some colorful sunsets! Thanks for sharing. :) That first photo took my breath away with that vibrant shade of pink.

You were in Indianapolis? Cool, that's where I am! That is a gorgeous sunset.

What's more beautiful than a pink sunrise or sunset? You nailed this one, Beckie!

Flydraon, thank you. I was awe struck by this sunset. Glad I could give you a smile.

beckie said...

Lisa, I'm so glad you like the sunset. It is glorious, isn't it?

Rose, it was a baeutiful sunset and I enjoyed it even more because I could share it with you. Doesn't take much to make us happy does it? :}

beckie said...

Susie, thanks! Happy to share them with you.

Robin, I'll agree that Indiana has great sunsets. Ever since I started blogging, I almost always carry my camera in my purse.

beckie said...

Monica, St. Louis is about 3 hrs. from here-not too far for a day trip! Glad you enjoyed the sunset.

Tina, you are so right. An enjoyable time. And awesome is a perfect word!

beckie said...

Racquel, pink is not the first color that comes to mind when thinking of the sky-but it is beautiful when you do see it up there.


Carol, yes, we were at the new terminal-very nice! We talked about you being somewhere in Indy.

beckie said...

Mary, I totally agree that a pink sky is stunning! Happy New Year to you and the 'girls'.

Amy, thank you. This was fun. Now if I can just get some more good pictures to share.

Gail said...

Wow! Maybe even double wow! I am so glad you had your camera...mine would have been elsewhere. Your photos are perfect, btw. Thank you for sharing them.

Beckie, your pictures were wonderful. I just love to watch the sun rise or set. I think it is such a special time of day and so often we miss it! So smart to have your cameras--I never can seem to remember to take mine with me.

Laurie and Chris said...

OMG!!! What great pictures. I can't believe how pink the sky is. I bet it was amazing to see it in person.

beckie said...

Gail, thank you very much. My camera is small enough that I always carry it in my purse. I've been fortunate to get a few good ones that way.

MG, I'm usually not awake to see the sunrise-working 2nd shift. :} And the sunsets are blocked by the houses on my street, so when I do happen to see one, I thrilled.

beckie said...

Laurie and Chris, Rose and I were both in awe of the beauty of this sunset. And a special treat to be able to see it with a friend.

joey said...

That's what friends are for! How lovely, Beckie. You are blessed to have such a dear gift like Rose in your life (but you already know that :)

Roses and Lilacs said...

Beckie, you captured the most beautiful colors. Happy skywatching;)

Wendy said...

They are absolutely beautiful pics! I love the colours! I'm glad you and Rose were able to spend some special time together after her trip.

beckie said...

Joey, yes I do! :} Hope you are doing okay.

Marnie, thanks. I was feeling pretty proud of myself and then realized-I only took the pictures!

Wendy, I was in awe of the colors. Rose and I manage to spend quality time together (translation-talking gardening and blogging :})only not as often as we would like.

Darla said...

Thank you for the nice comment on the ordeal our family is dealing with right now.

Sue said...
