SKYWATCH FRIDAY - RAMSEY, DAY FOR NIGHT

RAMSEY, DAY FOR NIGHT
BABOOSHKA
This image is copyrighted.


July 4th, we had this marvellous sunset. Never seen a sky like this in the 5 years I've been here.
For those who saw the previous posts you know I took a heaps of the setting sun that night over the nature reserve. Most of them I am using on a project which requires exclusivity, but this is one of the surplus I had left over. The other surplus stockI may post at sometime, unless I have alternative use for them.

For the record, no filters, photoshop or any other digital enhancements used. This was the sun setting between 10.pm 10.30pm July 4th 2008. You can check other sites to see I was not the only one who got this night's sunset images, but I am one of the few who got it at the optimum moments.

Not a lot else to say tonight. Need a blog break, due to small minded people who really have nothing better to do that belittle the blog. I'll let the image do the talking instead.It has a lot more to say with such colourful vibrant language than I do tonight, and that really is a change.

Please stop by Wiggers World tonight, as the sun is setting on the blog. Thank you.

To join skywatch go to SKYWATCH
The concept was Dot's, the next host WIGGERS WORLD the guardians of skywatch now are Tom, Imac and Sandy

Amazing deep colors, a joy to look at , and pretty unique as I understand.

Leora said...

Stunning colors and a great sky

CrazyCath said...

Babooshka - as I said before, this is an awesome sight and I am so glad you caught it on camera.

I know how you feel with blogging. I am struggling too with similar reasons, but I will not let small minded people dictate to me what I do or do not do. I will not give them that power.

Do as you wish to. Do what is right for YOU.

I couldn't think of a more dramatic
SWF picture. The colours are unreal. Here we never have such late sunsets. It is dark at 8pm.

Pearl Maple said...

Stuning colours for Sky Watch Friday, thank you for your kind comments on my post and thank you for sharing all your beautiful photos with us.

Abby said...

I love this! It is so deep in the purples. It seems like we don't get many like this around my part of the world.

kaye. said...

Just stay as you are. The photo is so pretty and your words are so funny.

Faye Pekas said...

That deep purple is simply gorgeous. Great sky!

Your sunset is superb. "Creeque Alley" coming at you in the a.m. Get those vocal chords warmed up.

Denise said...

What a stunning photograph, the colors are gorgeous, Mother Nature at her best. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving the very nice comment. I have enjoyed looking at all your other great photos.

PJ said...

Baruch said...

Awesome sunset and you have captured it so well!

Ce serait dommage de stopper le blog ! Moi je vois de très belles photos. Il faut continuer et ne pas s'occuper des critiques !

Louis la Vache said...

Babooshka, this is one of the most fabulous images you've posted! Truly exceptionally beautiful!

chrome3d said...

Lovely sunset once again.

Hey, get over the little minded people, okay?

Aileni said...

It's one of those specials when the atmosphere is just so and all the other conditions. Gave you a great shot but YOU had to be there to grab it.
The colour cast on mine is not my doing either but actually lousy processing of a roll of transparency.
I was dyingto use trans parency once more after maybe twenty years but its hard to get here and harder for good processing. I'd love to do my own once more.

ArneA said...

For the record, no filters, photoshop or any other digital enhancements used.
That makes the day.

Snap Catch said...

The way of fortune is like the milkyway in the sky.... Wonderful capture for skywatch! Mine's up too hope you can drop by, asking for your vote too..Happy weekend!

Indrani said...

Exceptionally beautiful sunset!

Olivier said...

"C'était pendant l'horreur d'une profonde nuit......." magnifique ce ciel

"It was during the horror of a deep night ......." this magnificent sky

Ann said...

That one is surplus?! - I'd love to see what the ones you used are like. Its hard for me to believe the sun can set at 10.30 pm. It sets by 8.30 here in summer, twilight is such a strange phenomenon.

Jules said...

Wow - the hand of Mother Nature just constantly amazes me!!! You were so lucky (and clever) to capture it for us!!! Thanks!!!

LeenaM said...

It`s really an impressive sky and a photo!
I am never tired of seeing sunsets or sunrises or photos of them, they are always different and so rich of nuances.
Happy weekend to you, BAABOSHKA!

magiceye said...

brilliant colours! beautifully composed!

Z said...

At the right place at the right time... beautiful image you have here.

I'm afraid I haven't had the chance to follow your blog on a regular basis so I missed these comments of which you speak. I'm sorry to hear of it -- why don't people have better things to do?!

Thank you for popping by my Villigen blog. Glad to hear that your recycling program is a good one. Best wishes from CH.

Bergson said...

just a word : magnificent

Marit - "Som Mine Dager Er" said...

Oh what a marvellous capture. That's awesome. This is bingo!

Looks like you have got a great fire going on behind that black silhouette - very nice contrasts.

Greyscale Territory said...

What deep, magic colours! There is a breathless sense of waiting for the next stage of night!

fishing guy said...

Babooshka: What a wonderful capture of the Sunset, those are great colors.

Mo said...

What a stunning sky. I envy you having skies like that around you. Stay with the positive feedback and ignore the rest. Life is too short to put energy into negative people, comments or surroundings.

B. Roan said...

This is an absolutely amazing sunset. I can only imagine how beautiful the ones you chose to hold out must be, if this is surplus! I can't imagine anyone having anything bad to say about your blog. I, for one, look forward to my visits here. BJ

jacqui said...

You know it's a winner, they aleays are.

Louise said...

That is one fantastic sky! I'm only sorry it took you 5 years to see it! But maybe it has much more impact when it is so rare.

The colors are fabulous. I love how they fade into the clouds. Excellent photo.

Bradley Myers said...

Good Lord! Friday again already?? Seems like last Friday was yesterday. Oh well. Actually there's still some of Thursday left, even in Ramsey :) as it's only 10:31 am in Seattle.

Last Friday seems as close and as far as my first day in school. Nice to have those short memory bytes. Nuts? Good thing ... winter is coming.

Knoxville Girl said...

wicked cool, B.

sue said...

Babooshka.

I have an island blog not on blogger. We have two contacts in common. They are not island ones. I have had horrible emails and wondered if we could compare notes.

Is it ok to email you?

Sue
