Sky Watch Friday: Front Porch Sunset


Last Thursday evening I was awarded this view from my front porch.
The view from the back deck was quite a contrast in color.
From my front porch seven minutes after my first photo.

I have just shown these views to Jane and she told me to tell it must be such a relaxing place to be at the end of the day... and she wishes she could share in with you... we look across the road to houses ... both front and back.

Thank you for joining in with Sky Watch this week and being part of the fun.
