Betsy’s Sky Photos

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.

I’ve been telling Betsy for some time that she should show some of her sky pictures on this meme, but she always has some excuse for not doing so.  So today I’m posting some  of her photos for her.

When we go some place I usually do most of the driving since Betsy is often busy on her computer (we have mobile wi-fi for when we travel).  We went to Asheville a couple of weeks ago, and while was driving Betsy kept an eye on the sky.

There were severe thunderstorms around us, although we didn’t run into any of them.  The picture above was taken west of Knoxville just before we started up the Plateau.

We got up on the Plateau just in time to catch the sun dropping below the horizon.  That’s when Betsy got this picture of the sun and colorful sky.

Even after the sun dropped below the horizon, the clouds were still a beautiful red-gold.  It’s hard to believe that Betsy got all of these pictures from a moving car on the interstate.
