SkyWatch ~ Loss . . .


Klaus Peter has left us and gone into the light, darkening my
personal skies. The sky will ever be reminder of the loss of a
wonderful photographer happy in his craft and always willing
to share his expertise . I do hope SkyWatch meme and MY
WORLD, which Klaus so successfully launched, will somehow
continue as a tribute to him.



The world has lost some of it's colour with you passing.
Thank you for being a friend.

I am 700km from home and only have intermittent access
to the net. Please leave a comment to show you have visited
and I will when and if I can.

  2. You can write so emphatically and the photo too is just right one.
    I hope, you have a holiday and you can rest there, where you are.
    Don`t worry about your visits!
    Good weekend to you Arija!

  3. So well said, Arija.
    I can't believe Klaus is suddenly gone.
    But look how the passing of a man most of us have never met unites us all even more. Klaus would like that.

  10. Dear Arija, this is a fitting tribute to Klaus. How shocked I was to hear of his passing and how sad. I will miss him, even though I didn't visit his blog much lately. It was just nice knowing he was there and I thought he would be there for a long time to come. I now wish I had visited him more often.

  25. Lovely verse delivered for Klaus, he was certainly a marvelous wildlife photographer and I appreciated so much when he commented on my blog. It was not often and yet when he did, it meant so much, because it was Klaus;) Enjoy your jounrey Arija, be safe and just get back with us when you are able.

    btw, in case I forget later... my blog post was taken about nine miles from my home~

    Have a nice trip, Arija.

  32. That's a wonderful post. Beautiful photo, my friend.

    MWT will continue, though we will have to find a new blog for it. Though my name was signed to a blog update that says it will be discontinued, I never agreed to this. So many people want it to continue. We will make it happen. Keep posting!
