SkyWatch Friday - Grumbles and a Sunrise


Some things have not been going so well lately 
and I feel a big grumbling fit coming on

on top of that, whilst driving home, I was side-swiped 
by a great big bus . . .

but grumbling is no use at all, you just chew up the nasties up and 
spit them out . . .

Sunrise a few days ago, looked like it was going to be a beauty


but gradually, it started becoming a little scary


and as the gold on the horizon glowed, the clouds darkened 
as though it were the end of the world.


The darkness seemed all embracing,
just like my mood today.

I do hope others have happier skies to offer.

  1. Wow! The light offsets the dark clouds perfectly!! And isn't a 'happy' sky just a little - well - boring?? Hope things are better for you soon!

  2. Hello Arija, it's good to be back! Your skies do look dramatic. I hope today is a beautiful happy day for you - sending you giraffe greetings from our world!

  3. I know -- sometimes a sky like that looks magical and sometimes it just looks ominous. However it looks to you though, your pictures always look beautiful.

    I hope you get the magic back!

  6. Big hug Arija.
    Such dramatic skies and wonderful capture of the stunning changes. You don't do things by halves with the great big bus. So happy that you are still here and not in hospital. On the road out of Balhanna to Carey Gulley a large truck in front of me used his right indicator, - I thought he meant me to pass him, telling me as all was clear ahead. He was in fact turning into an indistinct (to me) road on the right. It was unfamiliar territory and I was pleased to get home that day!
    Keep safe, warm and well. Thinking of you. xx

  8. hahaha Arija, maybe the skies sometimes mirror our consciousness too! That first one is really a bit scary, i see those skies and feel the same sometimes. But yes, as the seconds pass the sky's emotion changes so fast, let's hope ours follow too!

  9. Love these shots Arija, especially the last rather ominous looking sky. Hope you have a happy weekend.

  10. I am a firm believer in 'give us this day our daily whinge'. Let it out, and let it go.
    I am sorry that things are tough for you at the moment and the bus dingle must have been almost the last straw.
    A truly dramatic sunrise (ours are usually galah colours in soft pinks and greys), which I hope is the start of dramatic improvement in your world.

  12. What glorious golden dawn skies! Hope your mood has lifted now.

  13. Being side-swiped by a big bus has to be scarier than that ominous sky. Hope you are OK.

  14. Lovely captures. I hope you are in a better mood now. Happy sky watching.

    My sky.

  15. Hi Arija - We can't be cheerful all the time! You are entitled to feeling grumpy. But just remember that things could be worse - you could be living in a place like Saudi Arabia, where you can't drive at all, just because you are a woman. See? There is always something to be grateful for. You can drive!

  16. Sorry, things are not going well Arija! I am glad you were not hurt with the side swipe. Your golden captures are lovely, a beautiful sunrise. Wishing you happy skies and a great weekend.

  17. Drama... how fascinating the way the external weather so often reflects our inner weather. If you are feeling happier tomorrow evening (and I hope you will, and this inner storm will pass) I'm hosting I Heart Macro... would love to see the love you have to share up close as part of the meme.

  25. I'd be in a poor mood if I were up before sunrise --LOL-- But, you were rewarded with some lovely shots; and, I'm certain that dark sky gave way to a brighter one.

  26. WOW! Those skies are on fire!

  27. Those golden skies are gorgeous. Thanks for asking about me. I was visiting a close friend who spent a week in the hospital so it wasn't me for a change. I'm doing fine and my friend was released and is doing well.
