Sky Watch

It's been suggested to me before & since it's a favorite photography subject of mine, I've decided to participate in Tom Wigley's Sky Watch when I can. This picture is of Thursday evening's sunset/moonrise. I was taking pictures of the other side of the sky & when I turned around to go back in the house, this was the image I saw. We get some stunning skies out here.

perfect catch for Sky Watch Friday! earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books…. Mine’s up too hope you can drop by but if you already visited then thanks.

Good shot. Don't you wish you had eyes in the back of your head so you would never miss anything! I like the way the trees provide the frame for the photo.

Erik Donald France said...

There's a moon in the sky called the Moon ;-> (B52s)

Miladysa said...

Whow!

very dramatic. it's amazing what you can see when you don't have tall buildings messing up the view of things.

Lana Gramlich said...

Thanks, all, for the warm welcome to Sky Watch &/or for the kind words!

Chris; A painting in the farrrrr future, maybe! This panel (for the park) has got me falling SOOO behind on my "usual" projects, but it's for a great cause. :)

Erik; Gotta love the B-52s!

This is a lovely shot, I have not tackled any sky shots yet, so this is tempting me to do some :)

b12dreamer said...

Wow. That picture is gorgeous.

Lana Gramlich said...

Thanks to everyone for the kind words. :) Ironically, sunset the next night was even more stunning!

Marvin said...

Great photo, Lana. It's beautiful.

The sun didn't set here last evening, instead it got blotted out by thunderstorms.

Lana Gramlich said...

Marvin; Thanks. We got thunderstorms, too. More thunder today, but no rain. We're actually badly in need of rain, so I hope it starts again.

Barbara Martin said...

Brilliant photo!! It's amazing the views we have in our own backyards.

Lana Gramlich said...

Barbara; Thank you. :)
