Sky Watch Friday N:o 30 - Blessed with sunshine

I have been so busy with my study work lately that I have had no time to participate in any memes. Even today I can only post my entry and have to leave the splashing through other participants entries until tomorrow having just got the last urgent assignment e-mailed to my tutor.

As the header claims we have had some rather nice days even if today was as dull as before.

Here is a series of images taken during different times of day and I have been naughty and pointed the camera towards the sun too. Just could not resist it after such a long and grey period. The camera is still working fine though :)

Dusk and clear again. Venus as a tiny prick in the sky is blinking to me as well (and to you).

Please do visit sky watch friday to see some spectacular skies around the world:

I envy you such wonderful weather a bit:-) Your sky is so clear and huge. Beautiful.
I especially like the poetic snow-and-moon photo and the last one with the Venus. Charming.
Happy skywatching, and hope you are going to have more free time soon:-)

What a beautiful dawn to dusk series. I love the variety of tracks in the snow - some of them look rather huge!

Mojo said...

That final shot at dusk needs to be in a gallery. Seriously. I mean people pay folding money for such work! Spectacular!

Utrolig fine bilder av en vakker vinterdag! Falt veldig for det første og siste, alldeles nydelige farger! Men bildet med "kirsebærene" frosset fast duvende utover vannet var et morsomt innslag!

Magnificent skywatch shots, and the Celine dion music to go with it is very peaceful, Thanks.

Cheers!

Venus tuikkii illalla kauniisti ja se oli minusta hieno lopetus tälle talviselle sarjalle.

Upeita kuvia kaikki - kylläpä teillä onkin ollut kirkkaita ja kuulaitakin päiviä siellä! Mukavasti eri vuorokauden aikoja olet kerännyt ja jokainen on omalla tavallaan kaunis.

Heipparallaa! Viimeinen valokuva on todella ihana! Värit ovat kauniit ja vaikka varmasti on talvi-pakkanen niin kuva tuntuu lämpimältä.

What a great series. I like the all day idea. The sea shot is my favorite I think.

Linnea W said...

You've taken some gorgeous SWF shots in spite of your busy schedule. Your hometown is so picturesque even in the dead of winter. I really like the pic with the long shadows from the trees. Looks like you got out quite a bit yesterday! Enjoy the weekend.
