      Looks like there has been a lot of fun with sunsets and sunrises so lets keep this thread going with volume 5!

      Your Arizona Sunset #435 (closing Volume IV) was gorgeous, Michael. I hope those who visit here will take a walk back to catch it. And you’ve launched us with another beauty for Volume V. Yes! Let’s keep this glowing!

      The photo below was taken at sunset, but in the opposite direction, just catching a tiny bit of rainbow against clouds soaking up the sun’s warming reflection.

      What a wonderful catch this tiny segment of a rainbow at sunset Keelin. Yes, let’s keep it glowing in this thread and you set a good example of your own wish.

      Love the rich brilliance of your Orange Jewelry, Hans. It is stunning!

      Nothing so colorful in the silver/gold sunset below. What caught my eye in the lower right corner were the dark streaks against the light, right above the light streaks against the dark. It began to remind me of an etching plate…

      so, just for fun, I inverted the image to see what it would look like…

      IMG_2529_Inverted Scratched Sunset

      surprised to find it looks more like what one might expect from the sky (except for that telltale palm tree).

      And I have Michael to thank for encouraging this indulgence of curiosity. Thank you, Michael! Ages ago, you opened my eyes to novel explorations of cloud imagery. The mind at play is a wonderful thing!

      Hello everyone,

      Just wanted to start off by saying that I think all of your pictures are wonderful but one in particular caught my eye. Correct me if I’m wondering, but I believe Alan has caught some Jetstream clouds. Either way it is a wonderful capture.

      I was going through the archives and have decided to do you this picture from a while ago. Just some wonderful orange colors brightening up the sky.

      Hope you all enjoy,

      Gregory V.

      Welcome to the forum, Allan! Love the sense of depth you’ve captured with the grey cumulus and the wavering streak of homogenitus. Hope to see more images from you wherever you are. The intriguing silhouette in the lower right corner has me wondering where that might be.

      Also enjoying #503, Michael. Another delicious serving of your lovely Arizona pinks and blues.

      And Gregory, thanks for dropping into your archives to share a peek at a warmly brightened sky. Sunrise or sunset? Doesn’t really matter, does it, when the sky lights up like that!

      Whatever comes sweeping in at the start or end of day is just fine with me.

      Sweeping indeed Keelin. It is fine with me too. And a great radiatus by Allan. Welcome to you.

      Wonderful sweeping cirrus, Keelin. It looks as though an artist has just taken his/her first stroke across the canvas that is our sky. And Hans, the purple color looks marvelous. I would have liked the rain that you said did not happen, as I do enjoy listening and sitting out in the rain.

      Here is a picture from May 2019 after a decent-sized storm rolled over our town. You can see the mamma formations on the underbelly of the cloud. The overall swirl of the cloud is what I find the most captivating.

      Best Wishes,

      Gregory V.

      Love those soft, subtle tones in your Swirling, Gregory. And the bright halo in your #503, Michael. And I keep scrolling back to the gorgeous hues in Purple Without Rain, Hans. A dramatic contrast in feel to what you’ve captured in French Sunset. That thin, grey arcing accent is a nice touch!

      Here is one that caught my eye just a few weeks ago.
