SkyWatch ~ The night before the fog


I suppose I should have shared these last week but somehow
the poem grew out of the fog so I gave you that instead.

Something drove me out of the house just at the right moment
and this is what greeted my eyes . . .


so, for the next three minutes I did some serious snapping.


This one I did pop in last week but thought you would forgive
the repeat since here it is in its right context. That crazy colour
was over everything . . .


it took a while to get my mouth shut again, just look at those
colours!


From rich to richer, this one does not look like much but enlarge
it and you will see the fluidity of the colours in the sky


and then the sun scaled the horizon and the world became a
different place again.



Where would we be without SkyWatch Friday???
Just click the Logo and join up or just see what the skies in the
rest of the world are up to.

  17. Oh MY GOD!!! The sky is aflame!!!

    What I would give to see a sky like that that is NOT a precursor of a hurricane.

    I hope you are feeling good today. Please take care of yourself. I saw your comment at Bella's and am thinking of you.

  18. That is a very good question. Before SWF I already admire the sunset and sunrise but to showcase here in our blog and looked at the skies of other bloggers makes it more fun too. Just beautiful to watch the sky and blog hop too ^_^ Happy weekend!

  28. There's nothing like Australian sunsets and sunrises - my jaw dropped.

    My only consolation is that I enjoyed them so many times while I lived in Sydney !
