Skywatch Friday post

This photo, along with the ones I have posted over the last three days, was taken last Sunday, the last time the sun showed its face in Trieste. Here the clouds were moving in from the south and beginning to close in the whole sky over the gulf. Ten minutes after I shot the picture, just before the sun set, it disappeared behind a thick mantle of cloud and that was it, bye bye sun!

See more Skywatch here.

Right time, right place. I love the ships that appear to be exactly on top of the horizon. Rowers and ships put each other into perspective. Great light and dark. My compliments sir!
