Colourful Twilight Cloud - Timelapse

A timelapse over about 15 minutes caught this cirrus as it reddened in the twilight. Fortunately the stream was coming towards me so the clouds remained in the field of view for most of the time.
Speeded up about 50 times.

At the start the colours were quite pastel.

Fortunately there was no cloud to the west to cast shadows so the reddening continued as the sun got lower.

Even as the light faded the reddish colour was still distinct.
