Almost Dark

It's Skywatch Friday again, and the sky transitions from blue to dark blue over the Songs of Selma Park as night sets in.
In the background, you can see the top of the Pettus Bridge.

Other skies are awaiting you! Head on over to SKYWATCH!

I know they honored the Martyr of Hayneville last weekend. Did it involve a walk across the Petus Bridge?
Are you really lucky enough to have lime green street lamps. That's so retro -- and so cool!

I like the color of the street lights. I never saw this color on lamps before.

Also,I hope it was worth the wait. I thought it was so funny that we kept photographing the same sky for those few days!

Haha! They aren't lime green in reality, but for some reason, every photo I took at this time of evening makes them appear that color. Any ideas as to why?

I took photos of other similar lamps down the street, and they don't look green.
Perhaps this park has gone green...!

Hey Pj, Yes, I thought it was pretty cool that you posted pictures of the same sunset at Pensacola that I posted from Orange Beach. Now, how often does that happen?

Looks like a little splash of Crepe Myrtle in the greenery in front of the bridge. Pappy

My first visit and I scrolled down as I have never been to Selma. Pretty and much different from NY.

BEautiful SWF photo from Selma, Alabama! I've never been there, but have always wanted to go! Great picture!

I see just a touch of crepe myrtle too. I know that the sky is bluer and the air clearer in Alabama!! Beautiful shot for Sky watch.

Petunia said...
