5pm skywatch

In spite of a great many overhead wires, the sunset, seen from the garden, looked wonderful.
Time to walk across the road and look at the colours reflected in the lake.
I disturbed five mallard ducks on the banking and they flew out across the water making loud noises of protestation.
And then everywhere was silent. 
And cold!

    1. Hello Eileen, I often think that there will be no decent-looking sky for Skywatch Friday. We seem to have been sunk in a blanket of dull,dark grey for months. But every now and then, for just a few moments, there is a fantastic blaze of colour like this!

    1. I know when I see the sky lit up that it's going to be special over at the lake.

    1. Hello to you! I've just been over to your blog and had a look around, reading the description of your personality. The translation into English is very creative, giving the words a rather mystical, poetic slant. How delightful!
      If it ever stops raining I'll join your Sunday walk.

    1. I know, it just appears like this for a short while and I have the feeling that many people never lift their faces to the sky to see it.

    1. It is back to dull, dank and dreary, Bonnie but I'm just back from the shops with a special meal for Valentine's Day so, in spite of the weather, the weekend should be good!

  8. Beautiful sky, but a bit ominous. I'll take a colorful sky though, over the grey ones we have had lately.

    1. Oh, I'm with you. We had two days with some sunshine this week and it was so uplifting. Now it's back to dull, cold and wet!

  9. I really love this wonderful sunset. You made a great series of photos. We also have too many dull and grey days this winter with lots of rain and wind.
