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.

In mid-January we had a very interesting week.  It started out with above average temperatures, followed by rain, followed by sleet and some freezing rain.  We were supposed to have snow, but we didn’t get any (much to Betsy’s disappointment).

The weather started to clear late on Thursday afternoon, and as the sun was setting we noticed an unusual color in the sky.  Both of us went outside, cameras in hand.

The sky to the west contained clouds with both purple and orange-pink hues, as can be seen from the picture above.


But looking to the south, we saw a beautiful rose glow to the sky.  Once again God’s artistry was on vivid display.
