Skywatch - an unexpected sunset

Here in Israel, there isn't really Spring. I mean, technically if you ask someone what season it is now, they might say Spring, but if we're being honest, we only have Winter and Summer. Spring consists of those days where the weather hasn't yet made up its mind. It will be broiling, sandals and short sleeves weather one day, and the next day cold and raining. That doesn't sound like Spring to me.

Anyway, I had thought we were pretty solidly into Summer, and then this morning was suddenly overcast and cold. And then it started raining! Wow. Anyway, the skies were gray all day, and I wasn't expecting to see the sky before dark. When all of a sudden, I glanced out my living room window, and found that it was semi-clearing, just as the sun was setting. Pretty cool, right?
Feel free to click and enlarge the photo, to get a better view. And do go check out more sky-photography, at Skywatch Friday. Happy Skywatching, everyone!

Hi Toby. Those are lovely skies and I think you ARE a photographer. One could say pretty much the same thing about spring here in Florida (subtropical -- not the Spring we used to have up North/West.
