Skywatch Friday
December 31st - a magic night.

I have no fireworks in the skies to post, but we did have a beautiful sunrise the other day....

Beginning quite mildly but the sky was soon flaming

and there were gorgeous spots of celestial light above the snowy mountain tops

it all ended quite gently

with a few P.S.'s

Happy New Year to all with a few man made fireworks

For more holiday skies visit here at Skywatch Friday.


  1. Who needs fireworks when nature puts on a show like that for you. Happy New Year and thanks for adding to the Sky Watch party all year long.

  2. Mandy is right, who needs fireworks when you have skies like these! Superb captures and what a glorious way to begin one's day! Gorgeous colors! Hope you have a very Happy New Year! Enjoy!


  3. Glorious sunrises, Hildred. I agree with Mandy and Sylvia, who needs fireworks when you have that? You have a wonderful world in the beautiful Similkameen Valley.
