Sunset/ Sky Watch

Sunset over fields north of Mount Albert (East Gwillimbury), Ontario

From my archives as either the skies have been dreary or I've been busy at sunset.  (Don't you just hate it when your non-photography life gets in the way of taking photos?! LOL)

To see tons of beautiful skies from around the world, visit  Sky Watch

You let life interfering with photography/blogging? Off to reeducation camp with you!

I like the difference from top to bottom - soft pastels become fiery red skies.

see you there! said...

Wonderful colors no matter when you actually captured them.

I love the yellowish orange below and the blue above and the transition between.

And yes, I get mighty annoyed when my job and family distract me from my photographic and blogging duties.

Kathy said...

I know exactly how you feel!

Halcyon said...

It's beautiful! Maybe we can get together next week? Hopefully the skies and weather will be more cooperative. :)

Martha Z said...

Yes! One problem with our Southwest tour was they always had us busy at sunset.

Malyss said...

The silhouette of the tree makes the sunset even more beautyful!

Small City Scenes said...

Excellent--no matter when you took it. MB

Terrific capture as always and I, too, love the soft colors high in the sky and the blazing ones on the horizon! The bare tree is perfect! I feel the same way about all those family, household duties that interfere with my blogging/photography world!! Have a very Happy Easter!

we have had nothing but gray skies here in N.H. today it is sunny but there is an arctic wind blowing about 30 miles per hour. Oh I wish spring would hurry so we could get outdoors and take more sunset pictures

Yup, I'd say we're pretty obsessed with this photography hobby... but what joy! Both the taking and the sharing!

[Yes, I'm having a wonderful break from work here in Austria; but don't laugh, I'm in my brother's home alone. He and family took off to Germany for the week! :-D But I have the use of his car and it's great to drive around and stop whenever I see something I like. I'm revisiting places seen before, but now at my pace. I only miss my sweetie to share all this with; this will be our longest separation in 26 years.]

Beverley Baird said...

A gorgeous sky! Know how you feel - lately I have had too much work - and have not been able to answert blogs as much!

Genie said...

This one is a beauty even if from the old archives. I cannot wait for school to be out in June so I do not have to have it interfering with my picture taking and experimentation with processing. I am so in love with it all. Hope you have a nice weekend. Tomorrow is the last day of my spring break so back to my little prison cell and the bad buoys and girls on Monday. The week was just tooooo short!

NicoleB said...

That is ONE gorgeous photo!
wow!

Joyful said...

Very nice! I hope the weather is warming up for you. It's been very strange here. It even snowed briefly on 3 consecutive days (I'm still out of town). I hope the book arrived.
