Skywatch Friday - Clouds on the causeway

One day last week after work I was coming home late across the Courtney Campbell Causeway. The sun was just coming down. It was so bright but kept trying to hide behind the clouds. I had my camera with me so I stopped off on the access road and parked. There were lots of people out fishing along the causeway. It would have been a nice night out if it hadn't have been so hot. As the sun was getting lower it hit a wall of haze so it lost it's luster. The below juvenile night heron kept me company while I was taking pictures. He just stood there and watched, probably thinking "Why doesn't this fool go home and have dinner in her air conditioned house?".

  1. Isn't it interesting to see the way the sky changes from burnished gold to pastel pink and powder blue! Love the night heron. He can keep me company anytime he wants to!

  2. Beautiful pictures. I also love it when a bird or animal helps me enjoy the scenes.
