Sundown symphony

Would you get mad at me, if we took a quick break almost as soon as we got started? I know I promised you some exciting shopping down Magazine Street, but I just have to show you this picture I took yesterday coming home in the Jeanerette area on Highway 190.

There was cool front pushing through and as I came north on Highway 90 toward Lafayette, dark clouds of the cool front were starting to clear. The sun took its cue and composee a full length sunset symphony that lasted from about 6 to 7. The sugar cane fields were broad and flat -- affording a panoramic view.

We will get back to shopping in tomorrow's post. I never did a Sky Watch Friday, post, and decided it was time I did. Click the link to see more exciting sky photos.

Your Skywatch photo is stunning! I think you made the right decision! I see this is your first skywatch post. Today is my first skywatch post also. Like you I have posted sky photos in the past and even have posted on Fridays, but have never linked to the Skyley site. It should be fun!
