Magnificence


It's been a strange week here, getting back from time away, Mavis' vets appointments, visiting Mum, family staying with us, not much time to post on here or do the smaller things I usually manage to fit in for myself.  But I simply couldn't resist grabbing ten minutes on the computer to show you this magnificent sky.


The sky is so vast here, framed nicely by the hills across the road giving edges to the shots I take with my little 'point it and shoot' digital camera.  The panoramic shot dims and mutes the colours but shows the variance wonderfully. 


 The doggies were all snoozing on the sofa and we were battening down for the evening, as I went to close the roller blinds this was the view that faced me.  I simply had to grab the camera and step onto the front porch and capture it for posterity.

The colours gradually dimmed as the skies went dark, but I had spied the magic and captured it for myself.

  6. A million times better than any artificial lights. I would pull up a chair and watch it till it disappeared.

  11. Lovely skies. You are blessed with a lovely sweep of skyline, but ours is narrowed by trees and a nearby hill. Not to worry, I still stand and watch the wonderful dawn and dusk skies!

  12. What a beautiful sky. Your view is very similar to ours up here in north of Scotland and we get lovely orange, pink and gold skies too. We were lucky enough to see the northern lights this year but we had to drive out of the village to see them as we are surrounded by hills.

Sorry but I have added word verification to try and curtail the unprecedented amount of spammers recently posting comments. I will try this rather than stop Anonymous Users commenting for the time being to see if this will solve the problem. Thank you for your patience.
