Skywatch Friday - A Lethbridge sunset

To see more SkyWatch pictures, click here.

I'm getting in early this week (or late depending on your point of view and time zone) and posting my SkyWatch effort today as I will have to unfasten my safety cord and leave my computer alone for a week or so. Flying solo - scary thought!

This was the sunset at Lethbridge, Alberta last Sunday evening and it had "blog" written all over it - I slammed on the brakes of the car and skidded to a halt at the side of the road, much to the amusement of my front seat passenger and fellow road users. Well, OK, they probably weren't that amused.

I then opened my friend's side window, allowing the cool Lethbridge breeze to come in and gently tousle her hair.

An alternative point of view, I suppose, might be that when I opened the window, a Force 10 gale burst through the vehicle, whipping up bags, maps and small children, and which trashed any idea of a maintaining a hairstyle for any of the occupants. People say Lethbridge is the windy city - flippin' heck - they aren't kidding.

Anyway, then I delicately leant across her, shoving my elbows in her face, just to capture these beautiful colours. She was suitably impressed with my dedication to you guys - just after fishing her hairbrush out of her bag.

Again, apols for the grainy quality - it's the point-and-shoot mini camera again - but you get the idea.

Have a great weekend, everybody.

Back in a while!

  3. It's a sunset worthy of a little elbowing. If she's a real friend, she'll understand, especially if you take her to the beauty shop for Christmas. ;-)
