This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

Last Friday evening we were at Mountain Air, North Carolina, enjoying a delicious meal prepared by my son and his girlfriend.  We were sitting on the deck of the condo when the sky slowly changed color after the sun set.

I couldn’t get around the trees in the foreground, but I did manage to capture the red afterglow.
