Sky Watch Friday N:o 26

We've had such gorgeous wheather since Christmas Eve but today it is much warmer and clouded over. It's also snowing, which is not a bad thing providing it does not melt away to slush tomorrow. Being back at work it is the end of sky photography for me, except during weekends. A cloudy night sky isn't much to look at as it completely covers the moon, which is full in a couple of days or so. Last night it was still clearly visible.

Earlier in the week I took an array of shots and to spare you from having to scroll so much I made up a couple of collages instead.

For a couple of these images I was out on the sea ice, which has become strong enough to carry a car with the resent crisp temperatures sinking to -14 centigrades. A bit of a challenge for the photographer as the poor fingers freeze to icicles in no time.

Then there are others, of which some are taken late last year and others last week too. I did notice that one of the images had crept into both collages, but never mind this small blip :)

I hope these images are pleasurable to you and thank you in the same breath for visiting this humble territory.

Oi mikä kuu, tammikuussa nollayhdeksän, muiston siitä Taris tänne tallentaa. Kaunis muisto, kaunis kuu. ;-)

That top one was a real pleasure to see. I fear it will be slush in Finland too if you get the weather we are having. Total chaos along the coast.

PS There is an error in the link in the "postcard" with six pictures

Your whole collection of images is absolutely stunning. Faultless montage

Merisi said...

Beautiful collages and images, Tarolino!

Thank you for your kind comment on my post of last week's SkyWatch. I am sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I did not participate this week. I simply cannot manage to allocate the time to visit everybody else within a week's time. The wonderful thing is, I can still visit you and other sky watchers!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful world!

Meget flott bilde samling du hadde laget her.

God helg.

DriveBy said...

Wow! Each of your sky shots is lovely...hope I'd see them in person! Happy skywatching!

Tarolino said...

Thanks mates for your nice comments.
I so appreciate it coming from such accomplished photographers as you are.

RuneE: Thanks for pointing out the link error. I've fixed the html-code so now it should be working.

Merisi: I never get to visit everyone even if I know I must be missing lots of smashing photos. Each week I try to go somewhere I've not been before. Then I must confess I always visit everyone from my own country. Don't we all. Other blogs participating in SWF I'm then just hooked on.

Rune said...

What a beautiful series of photos. Thanks for sharing! :o)

Arija said...

Great series, but I prefer to see them singly although your collages, especially of the sunsets were quite nice.

Denise said...

Lovely photos, thank you for sharing them.

Kiitos käynnistäsi taas Joulutar. Sinulla on jokin virhe sivullasi eikä sinne voi lähettää kommentteja. Siispä toivon, että luet tämän viestini.

Kirkkaat yöt ovat kylmiä mutta mukavia vaikka niistä on vaikea saada paljoa hyvää kuvattavaksi. Auringonlaskuja tosiaan riitti suurempaakin satsiin!

Carrizo said...

Fantastic shots.

Lindab said...

You really have been spoiled for choice with so many beautiful sunsets. And how dedicated of you to be snapping away in such freezing temperatures!
