MANX FAIRY MAGIC - RAMSEY SKYWATCH

Could it be Manx Fairy Magic?


Well I don't think it's the Isle Of Man Fairies weaving their Manxie Magic and painting the sky with ribbons of gorgeous colour. No I think it's just another wonderful sunset over The Poyll Dooey Nature Reserve. There again with a name as weird as Poyll Dooey you would expect faires elves and Mystical types to be living here. Might even be Ginnie the Witch another famous Manxie. Click on the red words to find out what I'm on waffling about.


Good news - The Maxtor is working
Bad news- No new laptop yet
Good news- I can start taking new images again
Bad news- No laptop to upload too
Good news- The Maxtor holds tonnes of images
Bad news- Gary needs his laptop back.. er now.


Gary is now designing his Christmas Card. Not just any Christmas Card, but a Political Christmas Card. You have no idea the places that this card will turn up, but put it this way a Black Door with a black door knocker and a White House will have a little bit of Ramsey, courtesy of Gary Barker, BBC now and again Political Cartooinst. Do you dare me to add my name, Babooshka Ramsey Daily Photo? Anyway he needs are greater we are sharing his laptop. By the way the cards are being rush printed tonight in America, yes that's right America. The best price and the best service. Now that's not manx magic.


To join us go to SKYWATCH.


The concept was DOT'S, the next host WIGGERS WORLD the guardians of skywatch are Klaus | Sandy | Ivar | Wren | Fishing Guy| Louise

RuneE said...

Colourful! (And I'll never buy another Maxtor - they depend on their own drivers which can make the disk totally inoperable).

JennWasHere said...

Oh nice! I love it when the sky turns purplish.

My SWF posts are here and here. Hope you can stop by if you can, it'll be very much appreciated. Happy weekends!

imac said...

Just sat in awe at these beautiful colours.
Could not see Ginnie flying around tho.

mirage2g said...

For some reason I think the witches and fairies of 'Into the Woods' are there than in mine! Great colors there, hope you enjoy it...(did the maxtor come from the Philippines?)

Maalie said...

I really enjoy me weekly visit to the Isle of Man! Lovely picture!

Tanya said...

Those colors are breathtaking! Awesome skywatch babooshka!

bowledover said...

Wonderful colour capture here, its impossible to improve on nature. Thanks for sharing. Good luck with the cards too.

Alan said...

Quite lovely colors.

Nice to be in the top ten for first comments on your site for a change instead of past 100... that is just one of the perks I get for taking today off of work. :)

Gaelyn said...

Looks like magic to me. Nice capture.
Does the American printer mail them out for you also?
Sounds like things are looking up. Yes, I know, better when you new laptop arrives.

Brian Miller said...

What wonderful colors!

Afanja said...

What a beautiful shot with all these fine colours. Great!

babooshka said...

Yep print, mail them too and even with delivery and quick turnaround it's still cheaper and quicker than anywhere on the island. Looking into the possibilities for my photos.

John said...

What a stunning capture, Babooshka.

Have a nice weekend.

Life with Kaishon said...

I like this picture a lot! So cool! Like always : )!

SandyCarlson said...

If the fairies were at it, they are some artists! Beautiful shot.

Ruth said...

Most unusual and beautiful sky colours. I like the way the trees are silhouetted.

mannanan said...

Manx Magic...It's the spell you weave Babooshka when you take stunning images like this. The colours are just divine.

alicesg said...

Lovely photo for SWF. Have a nice weekend.

Ken Mac said...

Another lovely sunset. Do we get to see Gary's card?

A very magic place! The colours are fantastic and so are the trees!

napaboaniya said...

A magical purple skyline that's gorgeous! :)

Laurie said...

Brilliant. Oh, I love this one so much. I say yes, it's fairy magic.

fishing guy said...

Babooshka: I must say purple is a new sky color that you captured. It is magic for certain.

Robert V. Sobczak said...

Really great spread of colors in photo. It give such a soft hue ... sadly, so ephemeral. But you captured it.

Natural Moments said...

The purple sky does look magical... I hope it is not an omen....Beautiful exposure and happy holidays to all.

Stunning color!

Pietro said...

Babooshka, this is a fantastic picture! What light and atmosphere!
Enjoy Sky Watch!

Müge said...

Splendid sunset dear Babooshka! I'm curious about Gary's political Christmas Card, its design as you described seems quite powerful but it can be interpreted in many ways, no? Have a nice week-end! :-)

PJ said...

Well, it looks magical from here. And i love the pelican portrait. I do love seabirds so.

auringonkukka finland =) said...

Firefly said...

An awesome shot. I love pictures (taking and seeing)of sunrises and sunsets. You never know what the next one will bring.

Suzi-k said...

Hi Babooshka, been off the blog visiting circuit for a bit, real life rudely interfering with my cyber life, but great to be back, and greeted by this particular periwinkle blue sky, my FAVOURITE shade of blue. Great pic.

Jules said...

More like clever Babooshka than a clever fairy me thinks

Olivier said...

ciel magnifique et ombres des arbres branches au vent.
splendid sky and shades of trees branches in the wind.

Lew said...

Beautiful sky! On the printing - isn't international outsourcing wonderful? Someone here in the US is thanking Gary, but many are complaining about our work being outsourced to Asia. Hope your laptop comes back soon.

Peter said...

I trust that the laptop will be available for a while during the weekend, which I wish you in any case to be nice and (possibly and hopefully) relaxing!

Eki Akhwan said...

magic is definitely the right word. that blue violet sky looks magical, B!

Aileni said...

I gather my remark about a hard drive was prodding a sore point.
Sounds likethe is some light at the end of the tunnel anyway.
Great, in fact, gorgeous picture.

Grammy said...

I Very much enjoyed your beautiful photo.
Have a great sky watch week.

deslilas said...

Fairy picture.
Vraiment féérique, I don't know why but it seems less childish in French.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Wonderful how the gold becomes purple as the eye moves up into the sky.

Dragonstar said...

Those colours are a delight! I love winter sunset skies.

Greyscale Territory said...

Hilarious post! Loved all the added comments on bits and pieces in your life! I would be totally lost without my laptop! I tried it once by forced circumstance! Bad experience!

And adored your magical Manx sky too!

Mo said...

Hard to stay glum with a sky like that to look at. Glad the maxtor is working again. I've just paid £230 to get my images saved when my maxtor crashed. They are now safely on a western digital a far better drive in my opinion.
Hope the manx fairies can resolve the laptop problem.

Jim said...

Perfect SWF.

Babzy said...

The colour is stunning !

Anonymous said...

The colours are beautiful.

Knoxville Girl said...

fabulous sky. I hope you can continue your good news/bad news comments with some good news, like a working laptop. Cheers!

angela said...

For sure add your name :))

Glorious sunset.

laxeylass said...

Amazing each time I stop by your blog. Can no local business sponser you for a laptop. Photographs for a laptop? Just a thought. Take care and keep up the good work.

Kahshe Cottager said...

It is a magical sky and I do believe it was painted by faeries! Hope you get your laptop soon!

Thanks for your visit to my SWF!

Dewdrop said...

God is an amazing artist! Lovely, lovely colors in the wonderful sunset shot!

Cards cheaper in America, eh? Sounds like we are in a recession or something... desperate for business.

Neal said...

Very, very beautiful!!

Pam said...

You make the island look magical not the fairies.

Quiet Paths said...

There was definitely a little magic in the air when you took this photo, yes!

Pam again said...

The prices for the TT have shot up too. We may give it a miss.

Louise said...

The photo is fabulous, and I sympathize about the computer problems. Really, not much is worse it seems sometimes.

Bibi said...

I love the combination of these two colors together. Reminds me of a popsicle I used to eat as a kid!

Sunita said...

Absolutely stunning! How very dramatic. And the colours ...!
I'm quite overwhelmed... did you notice? No, I thought not ;)

Gresham Photo Blog said...

Sunsets seem to be flavour of the week this week, and yours is just as delightful as the others.

Perhaps you could run a competition for one of us lucky bloggers to win one. Hopefully you'll show us the card someday soon.
