Skywatch Friday, Ironman weekend

Friday will be really hectic so i am cheating a bit and posting this evening.

As promised when I featured the Ironman contest the other day, I saved some of the sky shots from last weekend for Skywatch. We went to the Pier on Saturday at sunset, and were there again before sunrise on Sunday for the start of the race. Both times the skies were wonderful, so enjoy!
Sunset........
As we arrived, there was an interesting cloud hovering over Brookes Hill

The sunset started out soft and gentle..



but it soon brightened up...



and lit up the sea too...



until it became really spectacular



Sunrise:

.......was altogether gentler, almost monotone, but it turned the sea and wet sand into molten silver....



You can see lots of other Skywatch pictures, the links are over at Wiggers World.

The people in your early sunset photo are so tiny! I love that. Such shots really do put us in perspective. These grow more and more stunning. I especially enjoyed the first one and the way the clouds framed the parking lot lights.
