Sky Watch Friday N:o 27

Another week gone and not in the finest of wheathers - unfortunately. Still to appreaciate a beautiful sky there must be some dull ones in between. The most colour in our sky for the past few days have been during early morning just before sun rise, when even the totally overcast sky has taken on a slightly purple complexion.

During the light hours one must focuse on something different than the actual sky to incorporate any interest at all in a picture.

It can be something in the foreground...

... or something in the middle ...

... or even spanning all the way to the background

Late in the day there have been the odd moments of some kind of colour breaking through...

... and one rare moment with a glimpse of the sun just before she went to sleep behind the horizon...

and left behind her a black night time sky.

What a remarkable post, love all your pics, from the fantastic night city scape to the beautiful sunsets.

Mojo said...

Magnificent work! The first one alone is enough to make me glad I came! But you followed that with a series of brilliant shots. The second one and the two "actual" sunset shots are breath taking.

Ida said...

Great series with a rate of variations.

Linnea W said...

Oh, so nice! And I love your commentary. Cheers from warm and sunny California (where the sun always shines! Send us some rain!)

This is a great selection of SWF pictures. I must say that I really love your header - it has an air of mystery about it.
I have also been enjoying your other posts and pictures.

Wau, mikä kuvakavalkadi taivaasta eri vuorokauden aikoina ja eri paikoista - todella hienoja! Oikein ihanaa viikonloppua sinulle:)

Arija said...

A good lesson in photography with lovely picturess to back it up.
The second last one just sings.

RuneE said...

Jeg ser du liker å eksperimenter! Svanen og bildet ved standen er mine favoritter.

PS Strandbildet har en veldig fin innramming og ikke for strek kontrast. Svanen ville jeg personlig hatt litt lenger til venstre. Da hadde den svømt så fint "inn" i bildet (dersom du har noe å gå ved beksjæring..

John, Baaboshka, Rune, EG Tour guide, Imac, Mojo, Ida, Linnea W (my namesake), Greyscale T, Photo cache, Skies, Max-E, Patricia, Gerald, Good Life of V.
Thankyou all kindly for your friendly visits and commentary.
Auringonkukka ja Inkivääri. Kaunis kiitos.
RuneE: I do experiment yes as this camera of mine is rather new. I've owned it for about a month and before only had a digital pocket camera. I love your tips and chatting about angles and placements as well as contrasts. It is very useful to get opinions from more established photographers. I'm still just learning and soak up any constructive information. So please keep it coming :)
Goes for all my other visitors too.
