SKYWATCH FRIDAY - IN THE CLOUDS




That time of the week again, Skywatch. Yesterday I was out and about snapping the very gloomy sky over Ramsey. This was over the Nature Reserve again, but the other side, looking towards the mountains.

Often I say that I get questionable looks snapping images around Ramsey, but not today. A gentleman I met in the park asked if I was a professional. We entered into a converstation about taking sunsets and the awesomes skies for granted and how I would never be short of those to photograph. I explained what Skywatch was, and it's worldwide links. He didn't think this was odd, wierd, or time consuming. On the contrary. He thought it was a marvellous idea and said he would look out for me and tell people, I know that girl, she's a photographer for Ramsey Skywatch. So here it is the one I settled on.

If you want to particpate in skywatch see Tom at WIGGERS WORLD.
Only genuine skywatchers need apply. None of your advertising for sales sites please. This is for enthusiasts only and hosted by Tom of the fabulous WIGGERS WORLD

Beauty, drama and wonder - all rolled into one excellent photograph. Love it, Baboosh!

Rambling Round said...

Great shot!

Louis la Vache said...

Louis is a bit late to the party - it must have taken him a while to traverse the space, even though it is cyberspace, between San Francisco and Ramsey. Be that as it may, Louis is very glad he made the trip.

Outstanding photo!

Louis has found many fabulous shots up with this week's SWF participants! Louis says, "What great fun this is!"

Impressive photograph! I like the composition and how you captured the full range of tones from the shadows in the dark part of the clouds to the highlights.

Powerful clouds!

Anna said...

Beautiful clouds and light! I missed this on Friday, but I'm glad I saw it today.

Texas Travelers said...

I don't know how I missed this. It's a great photograph and terrific story.

About 1 in 10 people ask me what I do with my photographs, and I tell them I put them in a box under my bed.

Then I tell them that they are stored on external hard drives and used for occasions like this.

Thanks for sharing,
Troy
