    JonMikal, this is just to show you that I didn't miss the red sky this past week.

    Everyone, of course is welcome to view them and comment.

    I didn't edit these pics in any way (except shrinking them). I'm actually not too happy with them; the buildings seem blurry, but I reckon that that cuz the sun was too bright to allow the camera to focus properly?

    Anyway, these were taken facing west (obviously) over I395, which runs right behind NASA HQ. It's looking out tward the Jefferson Memorial.

    Enjoy:

    I like the plane one the most. I'd probably crop the right side and the foreground a little.

    Reminds me of a song from the early 80's. Can't think of who the band was, but the lyrics of "Red skies at night" came to me imediately when I saw the pics.

    cool shots Jo.. that sky is brilliant. when I am shooting any shot towards a subject in the far distance, I manually focus on a point in the horizon.. even the moon, you need to focus with most lenses.. what mm were these shot at?

    Thanks again for the comments.

    Raymond, I shot these on my Canon PowerShot S2. I put the EXIF info in the original post. The camera does have a manual focus, but it's not very good. Yet another reason I want a DSLR :)
