Twilight @ the east/SWF


These are the skies at twilight from the hilltop at Liloan, Cebu.  The top photo is looking at the northwest, the next three photos are looking towards the east.  The sky was not as as intense as the western sky but the soothing hues of twilight were beautiful nonetheless.


Everything was dry---the grasses were mostly brown, the twigs brittle from the summer heat.  The colorful skies make a beautiful canvas for this otherwise arid and unremarkable landscape.

These beauties remind me of where I grew up on the Atlantic Ocean in FLorida. They are all so pretty. Love the palm against the backdrop of the sky. genie

I love the scenery in that first photo, but prefer the eastern skies! I've noticed that here, too - sometimes the prettiest sunset colors show up in the eastern skies!
