SkyWatch ~ Purple Sunset

The sky's unusual colour caught my attention, a seemingly
random mix of blue and red . . .

















a flash of bright light on the horizon,

fading as the clouds darken to purple and seem to sink towards
the earth,

leaving just a trace of light in the purple sea of clouds.

The effect enhances with enlarging ....

Thanks to the SkyWatch Team for the opportunity of enjoying
each other's skies.

  3. Gorgeous colors and skies! What delightful shots, Arija! I love how the colors deepen, fade and change.
    Hope you're feeling a bit better, my thoughts are with you. Enjoy your day -- once it gets there, I sometimes forget about the time difference!

  14. This is so beautiful. What does it mean, a dry autumn and risk of bush fire?

  24. The pictures look very crisp on the MacbookPro and also on the desktop which is a Dell windows. They also look sharp on my Dell work laptop. I think it depends on the resolution of the pc. The MacbookPro makes them brilliant. The third photograph is stunning, the contrast between the fields and the sky is so stunning like two different photographs. The sky a colored photo and the field a certain antique or black and white photo.

    I can see you crawling on the ground to capture some of these photographs. I am not sure if I can do it without sighing and fainting or squealling. I have a Cannon SXI and it can shoot bursts of 10 frames in one shot. OMG, I will need ten 32GB memory cards if I lived where you lived or travel where go. You are a natural wonder yourself.

    And...

    I love you.

    Tsup!

    How do you feel?

  25. But I can feel you within me but resting my head on your chest would be much better and I will play with your hair until you fall asleep, like my Mother and sisters used to do with with me.
