Hammad Rais is our host for the weekend sky captures, a challenge I came across last week.

The sky looked like it was on fire as the sun was setting this evening and I took these pictures through our bedroom window. Enjoy.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

cool you got to see a nice sunset! ❤
It was a beauty!
Wow! Beautiful pictures
The Canon did a fine job. If I;d used the Nikon, I don’t think the detail would have been so clear
I am not an expert at cameras but the beauty you’ve captured is awesome
Me neither, but the Canon gives better definition. The sky was quite dramatic so I;m glad my pictures came out.
Hey, Di, if you don’t mind, What model of cannon you’ll recommen?
The Canon I purchased is a Powershot SX540HS.
I haven’t played with half the capabilities yet because I’m a ‘snapper’ but this one is recommended for someone who likes to take snap shots, but also special pictures, like nature. The zoom is built in and fantastic for closeups (think my moon pictures). It was worth the money. This might help
Thank you so much Di. This is big help. My brother recommended Nikon but you said Cannon is better.
My small Nikon digital camera is a Coolpix and I was very pleased with it, but it eats batteries using the flash and the zoom wasn’t very good. I used it today actually and the pictures aren’t that well defined because it was artificial light in a dark place. Will be posting them shortly, so you can have a look. The Canon takes more detail so when you’re reducing the size, you don’t lose so much as you do with the Nikon. Battery life in the Canon is also longer (though I invested in 2 spares as they are rechargeable lithium batteres) and the images are definitely sharper. My Nikon was only £50 five years ago, and the Canon way more expensive, but it was a gift to myself for my 65th, and I’m glad I bought it.
Thanks Di for the detailed answer. I have saved the model number and will look around for it. Due to Covid and fluctuating $prices, imports are at a halt. I hope that I can get one soon.
Good luck and have fun!!
Thanks a lot

Lovely skies,we haven’t seen anything like them in years.
Thank you. Hammad put together a video of his pictures and it was wonderful!
This certainly looks so amazing.
The sky doesn’t show up colors like these in my town very often, so I’m loving this view very much.
Thank you very for sharing these amazing captures with my challenge 🙂
Our beach is quite lovely, even nicer when it’s just the sea and sand LOL. Glad you liked this one.
