Sky Watch # 50

Sky Watch Friday is doing really well. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were a lot of people with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post.

A trip to the Mastropietro Winery to see the sunset over the lake. A friend of mine, Pietro in Torino, Italy, should enjoy the winery family name. The day was dark and dreary with storms in the area.
There was a promise in the eastern sky of an improving evening.
The evening did start to improve as it went toward dusk.
The Sun went to a golden color as the sunset approached. I took some artistic freedom and watch as things changed.
The dead tree lit up as the sun set and put on a neat show. It was our friends Liz and Rick's 27 Th wedding anniversary so it was a special time.
You can see other great skies by clicking above or on my side bar.

A great series of shots. I really enjoyed the very faint rainbow in the gray sky. Very good reflections on some of the others. They are all great.

Thumbelina said...

Wow FG - I love a sunset. I love how you did the reflection and it looks like the tree had a big light on it!

Some of those shots look monochrome and very effective. Great skywatch.

Great framing with the latice. And all the reflections are awesome. I love old snags for the knarled character. Excellent captures. Hope the wine was as good.
