Sky Watch Friday - Burning sunset

I'm so glad the days are getting longer!

Skywalkers and kitesurfers!

My friend Brigitte and I (the "Vienna Skywalkers" :)
took an evening walk along the Danube some days ago.

The sky was painted orange,

and when we crossed the Danube, it looked unreal as if on fire

as after a giant explosion!

Happy Sky Watch Friday!

Oh, I like the "explosion" pic! It's good to see the Danube again. In my memory it was wider:)

You caughst some beautiful sky shots, and interesting action with the surfers.
I like that first shot best with the glowing sun framed by the trees.
And the explosion pic is cool, too.
