SkyWatch *6

Are the cloud rising or going down the gurgler
off the edge of the earth?

Sunset at Port Augusta, South Autralia

Some of you have asked about the lens I used:

I have a Nikon D40x with an 18-135mm lens

the photo is as I took it, I just chased around to get the

right angle before the light faded.

    Nachsommer

    Hinter den Gläsern
    mit "Sturm",
    den kleinen vergitterten Fenstern
    die Rosen
    mit glänzenden Fäden.

  17. So pretty - I'd like to be on that ship's deck. What a great angle too!

  18. The dock draws you into the centre of the picture. Looks like you've used a Lensbaby or something similar, to get that strange angle.

  19. Simply beautiful photo for Sky Watch Friday. The angles and lines add lots to the horizon and over view that you have framed.

    Thanks for your kind comments on my post earlier. Glad you enjoyed the Anne of Green Gables series, she is a special friend to many of us so thought we would continue with a bit more of Anne's wisdom to celebrate her birthday.

  28. Love this - the colours and the perspective are perfect!!!!


    The volcano is not settling down but the wind has changed and it is blowing away from rabaul - very soon it will be heading this way. Rain is something we need to wash the dust off everything. It is very dry at the moment.

  42. Hi! I'll send you some Dutch rain! The clouds over Cairns didn't bring any rain at all. It was dry all the time, but the air was warm and humid. Sorry!
    Thanks for your visit.
