SkyWatch: Pink Sunset

Another photo taken from a moving car. This is a new area of Jeddah where construction is booming. The growth here is phenomenal. Because of its location on the Red Sea, Jeddah’s growth pushes north and south along the shoreline, so it’s a very elongated city. We’re not usually out at sunset because of prayer times, so I felt lucky to see this spectacular pink sky at just the right moment.  I’m sure it would have been much prettier set on the Red Sea, but I just have to take what I can get!

    I am glad you were able to see the sky and capture the beautiful photo of your sun.

    Happy SWF and thank you for sharing.

  16. Oh! And I was wondering how you got away with taking some of these pictures? Especially the ones with people in them? I have gotten in trouble with the law once before just for having my camera out. Tricky!

  17. Oh, lovely picture!! I love your blog. I am a young American woman who moved to Jeddah in 2000 when my father got a new job. I too love Jeddah–it is such a fascinating, bizarre place isn’t it? 🙂 I will be following your blog now!! Check out mine sometime! Talk to you soon. 🙂
