Dusk

.
The best skywatching over the Jerusalem Hills (Judean Mountains) is during winter.
And the best time is right after sunset.
This sky came at 5:47 p.m. a few days ago. The days are getting longer. There is hope.
.
Happy SkyWatch Friday to you all.

Gorgeous! I like the bright central part of the photo with white and pinks, and then the peripheral darker shades of purple and black.

Dina there is always hope. I came down this evening and it was still light and if I could have got out it would have been a beautiful sunset so I know what you mean. Now the days are getting warmer (are they) the skies change. Hope you are keeping well we are looking forwards to our holidays in June XXX Don

Ann said...

beautiful skies. I didn't know you have winter too. Used to imagine that you are a warm country, but the Bible and Church teaching.

Incredible, absolutely breath taking photograph. It just makes you feel so happy!

Arija said...

Dina, it certainly is a wonderful time of day, especially the way you have photographed it.
Hugs, Arija

In the few days I was in Jerusalem in December of 1965 I took dozens of sunset photos. With the very limited camera I had at that time, it was a waste of film, but the sunsets of Jeruslaem are forever imprinted in my memory.
