Neat photo kamaly, and nice blend of colours in the sky.

Great one, its great not to have the pink sky, it is nearly a brown, fabulous colourings. Dianne

thanks very much Guy, marbiz, and dianne ! LOL, Dianne, believe me - there are about 200 shots of the sky in its orange orange phase, and its pink phase, and the view back to the east with the anticrepsucular rays ( threw that in there for Dann ;)...It'll just take me a while to go through them all and pick one or two to upload. Your night has already gone by - hope you had a chance to go out and see this moon planet show, but if you didn't, Monday night is another chance- the moon will be pretty close to Jupiter (the upper bright star)

Greetings, Jacques

Boy, you sure take excellent twilight photos Kamaly.

Thanks very much jacques and cal - mother nature sure helps, with a great display like this and clear autumn air! I got a cool one tonight where the crescent moon stayed crescent - but I'll try to wait til these recent ones move to the next page.

Cool. You would love the stars out at my place Kamaly.

kamalyn on November 4, 2008

Thanks, zoe ! I know I would love the stars out there! But it would have to be in summer. When I do go out west, its for skiing in the winter - super crisp air, but waaaay too cold to stay outside!

That's a great array of stars you caught there, kamaly. Folks grump about light pollution and whatever else is vogue, but you show that even in an evening sky, you can grab quite a bit of the heavens. Nice photo!

Thanks very much, n1w , especially compared to your Jupiter-Venus shot. And yes - at least here, while we've got light and fog, we don't get your awful SLC inversions blocking out everything. But I'd sure love to be out there in your desert lands with the stars you can see.
