Great captures. I love the third and the fifth especially with all that golden light.

I've never seen a funnel cloud, does it signify anything dangerous?

I have no idea what those funnel shaped clouds mean here in the NC Mountains..but when I lived in Ohio..I did see a few first hand on the ground..they were tornados.
We never get tornados here in the mountains or Hurriacanes.

It's a beautiful sunset. I didn't know it was possible to have a funnel cloud that wasn't a tornado. I learn so much from skywatch.

Arija said...

Dear Eaglesbrother,
I love the eastern sky , it is so unusual to have a fabulous sunset all round. I love your name, somehow, when I see it I get tears in my eyes. I myself am a sister to the grey timber wolf although I am banished to this country that only has a few in zoos which breaks my heart.

Happy Chritmas or whatever you celebrate at this time of yeal

Regards, Arija.
