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 was on the back deck Wednesday evening and said that I should come out to see the sky from the fairway out back.  I went out back with my camera and found that Betsy was right — the sky was beautiful.

The sun had dropped below the Plateau, but the sky was still blue.  The clouds and contrails to the west were a beautiful pink.  The sky wasn’t exactly red, but I was reminded of the saying, “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight”.

When I turned around and looked to the east, the clouds were a beautiful orange-gold.  It truly was a gorgeous evening.

    Look at those contrails crossing!

    Great photos George, but I suspect those red trails are the vapour
    streams of jets flying over. I love when visiting mother in Young to see
    the vapour trails of the jets flying over – Melbourne and Adelaide to Sydney and the vice versa from Sydney with the international flights
    also from Europe and Asia going into Melbourne. They criss cross the sky in strange patterns. It is really interesting to watch. Just one after another on clear days. Great photos.

    While my travels in Australia’s Top End during the dry season mean the sky is generally unrelieved blue, the variety of sunsets never ceases to amaze. Especially love the criss-cross of lines in the 2nd pic! Have a great weekend!
