Redding City Lights On The Sacramento River For Skywatch Friday

Redding City Lights Taken From Oak Run by Larry Jordan

I came home from work one day last week, on a cool, clear evening, in time to witness the end of this beautiful sunset with the new, crescent moon, big as life, hanging over the city.  I was inspired.  I had to take this photograph.  To see even more spectacular sky photos, head on over to Skywatch Friday.

@Rottlady thank you fro the comment. I love your turquoise skies!

@Michele I love those mountain photos and that one of the foxes making coffee is great! Is your header graphic photo taken anywhere near Squamish?

@Kallen thank you so much for your kind words! I love your sky photos, especially the one with the crow mobbing the hawk (of course). You can see my post on birds of prey being mobbed here

What a beautiful night shot. I love the way the colors blend in, and the moon is the crowning glory.

Hi, me again!
You asked if my blogger header picture was taken in Squamish, BC and no it is not. Squamish is the other side of BC from me towards the coast of the Pacific Ocean with their own chain of mountains that extend up into Alaska, I’m located way towards the Alberta Border … these mountains are part of the Rocky Mountain Chain…
Thanks for visiting!
Have a good weekend!
