Skywatch Friday: North Texas Summer Evenings

After posting nothing but cranky stuff for a couple of weeks, I thought I'd celebrate Labor Day weekend and our wedding anniversary (Thursday, the 3rd) with some of the skies Beloved Spouse and I have enjoyed over the last month.

The opening image is one of those lucky shots that can happen when you're not looking for anything. It was taken August 1st at the Ballpark in Arlington; my father would have loved the schmaltz.

A front was moving along I30 while we were on our way to the game, so we weren't sure what to expect. The clouds turned out to be somewhat distracting, though, as the weather moved through and provided some interesting colors and formations when the sun began to set.

Back home, a few days later, we enjoyed more cloud layering and another sunset.

I know that most Friday Skywatchers are suckers for color, but I really like the subtleties of the layers.

Happy Skywatch Friday, folks! Thanks for making it so much fun to look up.

Beautiful pink sunsets!
I have to say that I also love the two tone, two type, layers of clouds you captured the most.
Happy anniversary!
