Oh, What a Sunset!!

I took 28 sunset pictures, all in ten minutes.

We live on the east side of the highway and the west side of the sunset.

It was amazing how fast the clouds moved, changed colors and changed shapes.

Please overlook any wires in the pictures. I had no choice.

The unusual cloud kept its shape. I wonder why and how.

The sunset colors gradually grew darker.

There must be a reason for the changing cloud shapes.

I wonder if the clouds need to be somewhere else at a certain time to put on the same differing-cloud show?

 

 

Evening Web Building

 I became interested in spiders and their webs during the first part of September,

when I watched an orb weaver spider weave its web in the front yard for the night. ( I watched take it down the next morning.)

The color varied from the changing angle of the sun, the color of it and surrounding darkening colors.

Obviously, the sun made for a dramatic picture too.

I don’t remember if there was a breeze or not. Cars and trucks passed on the highway. I ignored them.

I can’t explain what caused this picture to turn out like it did. It had to be a combination of the light and sudden movement to create those web shapes.

The spider went round and round, patiently building its web.

I almost ran out of daylight. I would’ve of liked to see what the spider caught for its evening meal.

… It had already taken the web down before I got up the next morning.

 The combination of colors, shapes and the backlighting creates an interesting abstract design.
