SkyWatch Friday: Oklahoma Evening Sky

The evening sky in Oklahoma. June 11, 2011.

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.

Betsy and I were impressed — not always favorably — by the flat landscape in some of the western states.  But we found that one advantage to a flat landscape is sunsets that are as fantastic — if not more so — than those we have here in the mountains.  I captured the scene above as we were driving across Oklahoma.

    I like the way the sun rays are coming through the clouds. I know what you mean by the flat landscapes. There are places in Kansas and eastern CO that I could see the road 10 miles ahead.

    Gorgeous skies and colors and a terrific capture, George! Having grown up in Texas, I have trouble finding beauty in the endless flatness, but beautiful skies can even make that beautiful! Hope you have a wonderful day and a great weekend!

    Beautiful and lonely! So which has the best sunsets, flat or mountainous? I’m thinking it would all depend on the weather conditions.

    Makes me think of the music from the musical. 🙂
    I agree, in the mountains you have to someplace where you can get an open feel or looking down.
    The vast expanse of flat land makes for beautiful sunsets as this one shows! But, I wouldn’t trade my mountains. 🙂

    Beautiful sunset. Another thing that is good about the flatlands…you can see even more of the stars at night.
