From Out of the Frying Pan to the Carrock Can't Post

So watching the movie for the first time on dvd, I noticed something which I'm surprised I didn't notice in my two theater viewings. After Bilbo gives his "You don't have a home" speech, the sun sets behind the mountains. When the eagles come and rescue the company it is nighttime. However, the very next scene shows the sun brightly shining with the eagles flying towards the Carrock. Based on how close the eagles are to the Carrock when they pick up the company, I feel as though it should still be in the middle of the night when they arrive on the Carrock. Is there a logical reason behind this seemingly quick change of time, or is this just to give us a visual spectacle of the beautifully rendered eagles flying both at night and in the morning?

"'Ai! ai!' wailed Legolas. 'A Balrog! A Balrog is come!'
Gimli stared with wide eyes. 'Durin's Bane!' he cried, and letting his axe fall he covered his face.
'A Balrog,' muttered Gandalf. 'Now I understand. What an evil fortune! And I am already weary.''
