Sunrise Sunset over Khartoum

Last week my husband had my camera (for the first time ever, perhaps it was after he photographed me going to the spaza shop!) and caught this vapour trail and airplane. If you click on the photo to enlarge, the aircraft is clearly visible(Photo credit above: Grant Hedges)
That is when I noticed by the pink glow in the sky, that from our east-facing balcony we were not noticing the most awesome sunsets. (I always take the sunrises from this direction) I dashed up onto the roof...
and was rewarded with this...

For the next few mornings I made sure...

...I was up on the roof at sunrise
One particular morning I was up on the roof

and captured these angel wings

Not being able to decide which images to post

I eventually chose these. Hope you enjoyed them
