Skywatch Friday #6

The evening visiting hour at the hospital falls at that lovely time between the sun going down and the night sky getting interesting. Last night, on my way to visit Max, I was enchanted by some incredible puffy cotton wool clouds, so I did a little detour to Settlers Park to get a better view of them across the valley. By the time I got there, I had the bonus that the setting sun was tingeing them with pink....

And an hour later, when I walked onto the rooftop parking to go home, this is the spectacular sight that greeted me.

It is rather eerie but beautiful at the same time. Great pictures for Sky Watch Friday.

A sure sign of the visiting hours.
I do hope you find a lift in your heart when you look up to the sky as you leave for home. Soon you will have Max home with you & you can look at the sky together.

:) You know, I believe what you did qualifies for 'smelling the roses'. Good for you and thank you for treating us to the view. I kept thinking cotton candy - but then, for me everything seems to translate to food.

Thank you for visiting my blog and for such a lovely compliment.

thanks all, and Isadora, you are absolutely right about stopping to smell the roses, I have been trying to make a conscious effort to do that regularly, in order to keep my equillibrium and be strong for Max, and it works, a sight like that moon can give me a boost for hours and hours!

Clouds can be beautiful in the extreme, and you have caught four of them. It pleases me, though, to see that the ingredients are the same in the south as in the north.

PS And I enjoyed your paintings!
PPS Thank you for your own nice comments!
