Tobermory/ Sky Watch

Sunset last week over Tobermory, Ontario

The sunsets this week have not been great, as our skies have been almost totally cloud free, which is fabulous during the day but at sundown...not so much

 Ferry docked at Tobermory

 The ferry in the photo travels between Tobermory and Manitoulin Island, another place I would like to explore some day.

Tobermory is where the red bulb is pointing

Even with the lack of clouds you still did a great capture. Keep on clicking.

Even though there weren't many clouds and maybe even because of this, there is such a lovely soft golden glow on the water, beautiful images.

There is such romance in sunsets, isn't there?

Tanya said...

you still managed a good one! i'll take your skies, ours have been grey and wet, blah!

Buttons said...

I love it. I have never been here but hope to get there someday. I just love the sound of the name Tobermory don't you agree. It just flows off your tongue. B

One does need clouds to get good sunsets but then you did just fine without them in these photos. I really like the first shot - putting the day to bed!

I love sky pics, i love watching the sky, over water over mountains and on flat ground. the sky is amazing, even when raining or storms are brewing. sky watching is one of my most favorite things to do. this morning from the back yard, the clouds out at the beach were brilliant pink, but we have TREES that block the photo, but i can enjoy it each day

Yes, cloudless skies are not very interesting to the photographer. Always at the ready, you did manage to find a nice sunset.

Karen said...

Great shots! I like the subtle reflections on the water. You really should take the Chi-Cheemaun to Manitoulin, it's a beautiful place.

Those are lovely sunsets. I know what you mean about clouds adding to sunsets but these had enough variation to be quite beautiful.

Ms. Becky said...

whoa - Tobermory (love that name) is right out there on that point alright! your photos have a distinct look always - I could spot them on a gallery wall I do believe. I'm just enthralled by the light on that water. that is one glorious sunset. man, I love that photo EG. really nice. happy SWF to you!

Linnea said...

To me those skies are pretty spectacular!

Ann said...

I live at a point, and people come specially to view the sun rise and sunset and view the moon. I have yet to do it. Weather is still lousy.

Ebie said...

I love the golden "clumps" of clouds, the soft shimmering reflection, and perfect place to be to sky watch!

Hildred and Charles said...

Beautiful golden lights.

Stewart M said...

I like it when I find places that share names with other places that I have visited. Tobermory in Scotland was one of the last places in Scotland I went to before I moved overseas!
