Blood Red Sky

Blood Red Sky

The days are very short now. And the sky has been grey for a few weeks. But we did actually have a few hours of a blueish sky yesterday, so hurrah for that. I took this photo at four in the afternoon a couple of day ago. This really isn't my favorite time of the year.

Skywatch Friday.

Amazing, Steffe. Brilliant color. But four o'clock is awfully early for color like that!

I agree that winter can be depressing, but this shot is gorgeous.

Wow. It looks like the end of the world in Haninge.

Beautiful sunset... how many hours of daylight do you have this time of year?

Visst är novemberurrig och trist. Borde strykas ur almanackan om du frågar mig. Vackert var det i alla fall denna sena eftermiddag.

Powerful sky color. The sky may be red, but shorter days make me blue.

This is a spectacular sky, but I would certainly prefer it at 6:00 rather than 4:00. The one time we were in Sweden it was in June, and it stayed light until abotu 11:00 pm.

Thought I might comment what a blood red sky you posted, but you already beat me to it. Striking, Steffe!

It looks like something out of a sci-fi film.

freakingly beautiful. so much RED!!

unlike you this time of year is my favorite time of year - the colors and light - nothing like it! of course we aren't as far north as you and thus do not have the prolonged period of dark days as you guys....but you will find beauty regardless of the season or available light!!

It looks like the right time of the year to capture lovely sights.

Rob and Mandy said...

Stunning! Come to Barcelona, 25 degrees, blue sky, bis sunshine. No nice winter skies though.
