    Yes Michael, Keelin brought the sunsets with Second Floor Sunset to a next level.  Very funny title.

    Nice dark blue atmosphere on Sunset  #401 btw.

    Thank you for launching us into Volume IV, Michael and Hans with your dramatic and astonishing celebrations of the dimming of days and nights. I shall need to venture outdoors either earlier or later to contribute more to this colorful topic, but here is a simple blush that caught my eye not long ago. Almost as if the Sky were playing coy and flirting with long shadowy Cirrus lashes.

    It is a very subtle Blush you captured Keelin. love it.

    Here a picture of the sun at his his last attempt at the end of the day to shine through the altostratus making it look like being at the horizon (but it isn’t yet).

    Hans, my moonrise today was very akin to your last sunset #320890.

    I missed this but The Times published one 27NOV2018. I loved the winning sunrise sky and there are other interesting skies too

    Fantastic pictures can be found in the link you provided Hygge. Thanks for sharing. I agree with you about the sunrise. The morning dew on the foreground makes it enchanting and otherworldly.

    Here – more simply – a composition in reds.

    In The Times, UK, the caption adds that this is Utah Lake shore at sunset near Salt Lake City.

      You are right Shiprock45. Typical Maxfield Parrish colors on Arizona Sunset #402.

    Hans, your image of the sun’s last attempt has a pleasing patina to it — lovely subtle colors there, and in your composition in reds as well.

    Hygee, thank you for links to stunning photos.

    And Micheal, ah, another beauty with a blush.

    Below, crepuscular rays stretch out the final moments of a Winter’s day.

    A colleague of mine caught this sunrise scene while driving into work (I have to believe he was stopped at a light) and knowing my interest in clouds wanted to share it.

    So what kind of clouds are these? Altocumulus? I have trouble identifying with confidence.

    Anyway, I think the colors and shapes are quite unique.

    Nice sunset George. It reminds me of a picture I posted in a former volume of Sunstes and Sunrises:

    There are some similarities

    Nevertheless any picture of the sky is unique. These formations at sunsets are hard to classify, because the shadows of the streaking light of the setting sun underneath gives the cloud a different appearance. Anyway my guess is stratocumulus. Any other opinions?

    Next one is easier to classify as altocumulus. A  classical view at sunset.

    Hans, is that Jason’s Golden Fleece you captured on the 25th of January? It’s a beauty! As are the posted images following it. Nice work, all! Below, a smeared sunset announced the end of a rainy day here.IMG_2406_Smeared Sunset
