RAMSEY GOLD - SKYWATCH FRIDAY

Apologises for another sunset, but small islands don't have great cityscapes. You work with what you have, so it's another Ramsey setting sun shot. It's taken from a friends flat,(a very understanding friend of this obsessive photographer, one of the rugby players from an earlier photo post) hanging out the upstairs window. Probably not the safest way to capture a sunset, but I didn't want half a window frame obscuring the view. The harbour front buildings and scaffolding I kept in, and refrained from cropping, simply because they are integral to the overall image, a slice of Ramsey.

Anyone want to learn another language? Do you fancy speaking a little Manx this weekend? You do? Then I have just the link for you. If your're game, then try this link - LEARN MANX
It's a wonderful colourful site dedicated to all things Manx. From the beautiful language, lastest news, a diary of events, puzzles, historical content and more, you'll find it at LEARN MANX
A special mention must go to my good friend, and radio star,"Manx Language Officer for the Manx Heritage Foundation," Adrian Cain. The details for contacting Adrian, for all your Manx Language needs, can be found on the site. Contact him, he won't bite, well only in Manx.

The foreground usually makes the picture - even if you have to hang out the window! It seems to have been worth it.

Interesting about the language - I did,'t know it was that Gaelic. I thought the old Norse presence would have left a clearer impression. Oh, well...

solrikioo said...

Wow, cool sunset!

You don't have to apologize for the supposed excess of sunsets. There are so few beautiful ones here that I like to view them!

Greetings from Nashville!
I wanted to let you know I stopped by and have been enjoying your photos!

Please excuse that I'm cutting and pasting this comment, but since my right arm (my writing arm!) is still in a sling, typing is pretty difficult, so I really haven't been able to make comments.

Have a great weekend!
Chris

Sherry said...

This is a glorious photo, awesome color!

ellen b said...

No need to apologize for such a lovely sky! Amazing color...

Marie said...

You don't have to apologize. This photo is fantastic! The sky is on fire.

Craver Vii said...

"Stunning" seems to be the right word, and I see that it has been used already. So if you can apologize for using another sunset, I will apologize for being redundant to describe it.

I started to look at the language thing, then chickened out. But if you insert a one-word lesson here and there, we might have something.

The Texican said...

Babooshka, Glad you came by today. That really is a firey sunset. Come back soon.

Loïc BROHARD said...

Beautiful picture, and I love your user name. Whenever I see it I hear that song and see Kate Bush in a...what was she wearing in that video, a gladiator-inspired bikini? :)

Ming the Merciless said...

Awesome photo of the sky. The color is mesmerizing.

Lake Lady said...

We can never get too many sunsets, especially when captured as well as you do!

Alan said...

Quite a golden sunset. A lack of skyscrapers is not a bad thing. And leaning out a window is no worse than snapping a photo out of a car window while traveling 60 mpg in traffic - not that I'd ever do that of course, no... :)

Greg said...

Wow - what a stunning picture of the sky

Jackie said...

That is stunning. One of the advantages of small island living I guess - you don't see many of those here in the city (especially through the rainclouds, lol!).

Bbsato said...

Great shot, it looks like fire…

Lake Lady said...

Re-visiting and found the link about the Manx language. I was just about to ask you to post a clip for us to hear, but see that you had already given us the opportunity. Beautiful language to hear, but must be very hard to learn to speak! Thanks again for the education!
