Skywatch Friday - Fire in the Floridian Sky

After a stormy day last Monday in Cocoa Beach complete with a tornado watch and heavy downpours, our evening started with this spectacular sunset. Maybe facing the front hotel portico wasn't so bad after all. Our balcony gave us a great viewpoint for observing the blazes of orange and yellow fanning across the western horizon.


The downright awesome team of hosts - Klaus, Wren, Sylvia, Fishing Guy and Sandy - bring us Skywatchers together each week to share our shots of the sky. Come join us by clicking on the banner above.

That is a gorgeous sky. I like how you used the church with its cross to set off the image. Very well done.
