Who drives eastward when there’s the setting sun in the west! 
It is not something we like to do but sometimes we just have to. One day as we driving away from the sunset ( I know…), I caught these pretty skies along I-580 near Fremont and Livermore, CA. The light in the evening sky and the coloured, striped clouds did offer some consolation for missing that ritual of the sun diving into the Pacific Ocean.

It was the delicate stripes that I noticed first.

As we drove eastward, the strips turned into golden ones,

As night drew closer and we drove further away from the direction of the sunset, the striped clouds were a mix of several pretty colours. What a way to end the day!

      The pretty clouds and the sunset light deserve the compliments. The pics I took were on a phone (yeah) and from a moving car. So I think they could have been better.

      But I'll take the compliment for now and try to pass it on to the clouds and the light. 😀

      Thank you sowwwww much, Bik. 🙂
