  24. Were the two top photos taken on the same day? If so, it's amazing how the sky changes in a matter of minutes...

    Great Skywatch Friday post!

  25. Yes Nathalie, the sky changed a lot. They were all taken on the same day. The first two were taken about twenty minutes apart and the third one was a couple of hours earlier.

  45. Those are really interesting light towers; never seen any like them! Great skies you captured too! Those towers remind me of the shipping cranes along the shores of Alameda, near my hometown. Thanks for your visit...

  54. Thank you for the visit! :) Nice shots! Are these things really supposed to be...leaning (?) towards the ground or is it the result of a wide angle lens?

    ReplyDelete
  55. Great series of shots. I love when the same area looks so different under different skies.

    Thanks for visiting me.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yes AKO, those towers do actually lean that way. I think they were designed that way to provide light right across the boulevarde because they only run down one side.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Very beautiful and interesting photos, I love the different colors at different times.
