Skywatch Friday: Accidental Sunsets

As usual at the beginning of a new quarter, the past couple of weeks have been filled with meetings and the first week of classes.

The photo below was taken during Twelfth Week (as we call the "in-service" portion of the interim between quarters). I left meetings at sunset only to be surprised by a pretty western sky seen from the sixth floor of the parking garage.

Monday evening, after my first class, I was treated to an even better sunset which wins top spot in today's post.

Both shots were taken with my trusty antique, first-generation iPhone looking toward North Park Center in Dallas. The weather was cold and clear, but I have a feeling that our notorious smog had something to do with the colors.

Since there's still work to do on my new class (Pioneers of Modern Design), which premiers this evening, I'll sign off now, and wish everyone a happy Skywatch Friday. Many thanks again to our great team.

Both sky scenes are terrific especially since you shot them with your iphone. It's handy to have it with you; you never know when you might need it! Happy skywatching and all the best with your class.
