Skywatch *1


Sunrise at Mt.Pleasant South Australia



Some watch the gentle sky, others' interest veers into other directions

Photographed late afternoon to-day from a moving car at
90kmh on a freeway in the wrong lane.
When God waves, so does my camara lens.

Last light at Forrest, Wetern Australia
Where the settlement is gone , but a wonderful landing strip remains
in the wild outback desert country.

Happy skywatching!

    don't worry about you link going missing this morning... i around 4 hours Sky Watch starts all over again... a new links list goes up every week at the same time... there's a countdown on the Sky Watch blog... you will not have to do anything at all now, as you sign on late... I have added your link already... you are either No.1 or No.2 on this weeks Sky Watch... just sit back and enjoy now... later when the new list appears you can see others who will be joining in...
    All the best... if you need any more info my email is available in my profile.. feel free to contact me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can

  25. Hello Arija

    I think your sunset shot trumps my one of the bridge to the Isle of Skye! Not much scope for sunsets just now - too much cloud and rain; another lovely English summer!!

    Best wishes, Adrian

  68. What wonderful collection of sky images!

    The photo of the crepuscular rays above the stadium is outstanding, especially considering the circumstances under which you shot it. Mamma mia! I venture to presume that you were not the driver. *giggle*

  70. Thank you all for braving my site and your kind comments. I hope it was not just the donkey vote I got being first on the list this month and that at least some of you come back. All of you will always find a warm welcome here.

    I am sorry I could not visit all of you as some of your sites elected not to open their doors to me. I have no idea why. Maybe next time. Happy skywatching to you all!

  73. Hallo, danke für den Kommentar in deutscher Sprache. Ich kann mitfühlen was es bedeutet alles in einem Feuer zu verlieren, bei mir ist es auf eine andere Weise geschehen.
    ... und danke für den SWF Beitrag.
    Ich liebe die Katze auf dem Pfosten.
    Liebe Grüsse
