Friday, 12 September: Skywatch Friday

The sun seems to set right at the end of McKenzie Street, Brooklyn, Pretoria in South Africa. The black tracery of branches are made by the leafless jacaranda trees soon to burst into mauve splendour. Myh first attempt to join Skywatch Friday.

Your profile story is really rich and I like it and what you do. The photo you posted is a really nice one and perfect for Sky Watch Friday.

My blog post for Sky Watch is on my Canon Pixels and if you have any spare time I would appreciate it if you could take a look at the sun peeking through the oak tree leaves.

Thanks.
