I think Australia has the most dramatic light :) Great photos, Arija!ReplyDelete
Thank you for your congratulations, I am happy that my pictures touch your emotions! I am happy that you come to visit me! Thank you! I always enjoy your post. Needless to say...
Your photos are spectacular, the cloud formations are incredible and beautiful. Lovely photographs, all of them.ReplyDelete
Spectacular - that top one looks like a glowing crysanthemum in the sky!!ReplyDelete
I especially like the third one with the bare trees standing on each side!ReplyDelete
Fabulous shots, Arija!ReplyDelete
Beautiful and dramatic skies! And like everyone else, I'm so glad that you share them with us -- the beauty and your words! Thank you!ReplyDelete
Your cloud study is so spectacular. I love that one twinkling city light in the darkness shot.ReplyDelete
Very powerful and beautiful clouds!!ReplyDelete
Those are beautiful!! I love the pink and gray colors/ReplyDelete
Your photos are lovely and stunning...you are surrounded by beauty : )ReplyDelete
wonderful pictures, I just love clouds. I think I am one of the few people that can't stand a blue sky. lolReplyDelete
Arija, what a beautiful sunset. The first image looks like glowing smoke coming out of a chimney.ReplyDelete
the way you capture the clouds and dress them in prose makes for more than a perfect composition, is a song by itself, each and every time. Thank you for sharing your art and your vision and knowledge of the deeper meaning of life with us. It is a true blessing.
All the clouds, does it mean it is going to rain?ReplyDelete
Beautiful sky pix.
Your sky watch photos are spectacular!ReplyDelete
Amazing lighting in all of the photos.ReplyDelete
Beautiful sky ...ReplyDelete
Arija, thank you for your comment on my blog - I wished I could zaubern you over here and share my new hometown with you!ReplyDelete
Hugs from V.,
Very much worthwhile for enlarging !ReplyDelete
Such beautiful soft colors. They are more dramatic when enlarged. Thanks for shoaring those gorgeous shots.ReplyDelete
How gorgeous, Arija. Those clouds look like an explosion in the sky! Very beautiful. And lovely poetic commentary, too!ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos.Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Mary Elizabeth @ Now and Then
Wonderful photographs - so much light, movement and colour. A xReplyDelete
Gorgeous drama skies!ReplyDelete
Amazing especially the last two such intense colour.ReplyDelete
I love it when the setting sun shines on clouds. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Very moody shots, Arija!ReplyDelete
i so love that first capture...awesome and the others are beautiful too :)ReplyDelete
have a wonderful weekend.
What wonderful skies, especially the first photo and the last. Amazing and well photographed by yourself. Well done.ReplyDelete
Arija, these are a beautiful collection of photographs but that first one is absolutely stunning, such a beautiful capture. Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.ReplyDelete
Love the colours in the third one - dramatic.ReplyDelete
I love the first photo especially. It is like the cloud is being lit from within.ReplyDelete
Such drama and atmosphere - stunning!ReplyDelete
Sydney - City and Suburbs
That cumulus looks as if it is starting to tower - was there lightning?ReplyDelete
Stunning in all angles Ma'am Arija. The pillar of clouds gathering momentum reminiscent of the Exodus times.ReplyDelete
Impressive! The changing of the clouds :-)ReplyDelete
You could keep watching these sunsets and never see the same again, couldn't you! My favourite of all these is the third one. I like the almost monochrome feel, with just the one strip of colour.ReplyDelete
Wow, those are some serious clouds! And beautiful sky!ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate it!
I'm sorry you are going through such a hard time with the drought in your country. Were you anywhere near those terrible wild fires that took so many lives? I was really sad to hear about that.
I hope you are safe and that rain comes really soon to your country!
Oh boy! I just love that cloud formation and the sun reflection on that first one is just superb. I think that is absolutely beautiful!ReplyDelete
Wow, that was an impressive sky and you sure got some great pictures of it.ReplyDelete
The darkness of night approaching :)ReplyDelete
What a fabulous sequence of shots. So beautiful. Happy Weekend!ReplyDelete
Wow! That is an amazing cumulus tower! How beautiful! I love it when it is lit, so that all the boiling texture is very clear. How wonderful!ReplyDelete
Such beautiful and dramatic skies!!ReplyDelete
Oh! I enjoyed all your pictures immensely. How beautiful any of those would be to enlarge and frame. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Arija: Beautiful capture of the clouds at dusk, very nice captures.ReplyDelete
I love your photos of the dramatically leaving sun! Very spectacular! Thanks for sharing and for your visit. That's a great idea to hide in a cage of Faraday! Have you got lightning conductors?ReplyDelete
Have a great weekend!
Those are amazing! You must have taken these in Middle Earth. :)ReplyDelete
That first shot is really, really amazing.ReplyDelete
Wow those are amazing my favorite is the first one. Love the chimney's from the roof top as wellReplyDelete
Stunning sunset series and you captured it in a perfect sequence.ReplyDelete
Really beautiful series of shots.ReplyDelete
Stormclouds on the horizon. Nicely followed sequence from fading light to darkness and excellent photos of every stage.ReplyDelete
Arija such expressive skies you post!! That first especially is amazing!!Enjoy your weekend! hugsReplyDelete
Incredibly beautiful, I wouldn't believe it if I wasn't seeing it for myself in your photos, Arija!ReplyDelete
WOW! Awesome captures!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing them with us.
Wow - all photos are great! Absolutely love the first one.ReplyDelete
Wow, really incredible sky, especially the first one.ReplyDelete
The sky really is the perfect backdrop to all manner of stunning visual encounters. You made some great examples of how this works--from the outlines of human-made works against what nature brings us,to the unfolding of a dramatic sunset. Who could ask for a better venue? Thanks for sharing these; they're just lovely.ReplyDelete
Stunning sky series ... dramatic and fascinating!ReplyDelete
Hugs and blessings,
I love the way that by scrolling down gently you get the feeling of it getting dark. The colours are superb.ReplyDelete
The colours of the clouds and the drama of the setting sun, just extraordinarily beautiful.ReplyDelete
Beautiful shots of the clouds as the sun drops below the horizon!ReplyDelete
Wow. Your skies look as though they were designed by Cecil B. Demille himself! Spectacular!!ReplyDelete
Wonderful skies. How are you feeling?ReplyDelete
What a beautiful series of the sunset! The mysterious light on the 2 last ones are my favourites! Magical color!ReplyDelete
