RAMSEY, ISLE OF MAN - SKYWATCH

Poyll Dooey - Sunset Surprise(not really)

Good news a borrowed laptop for a few weeks. Bad news it's behaving very strangely.

A quick sunset over the nature reserve from about a month ago. Not much else to say tonight.
Going to grab a coffee and come back and see if I can get to grips with this laptop. Still converting and uploading images one as and when which is painstaking and boring.


Why is the line break double spaced or cramped I don't know, but's its very annoying. Any ideas anyone.


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

Happy holidays!

The text is bunched up for you. You are not sure what the problem is though. New updates? Sky as always excellent.

Wonderful to see that colourful sunset after days with only grey and misty weather!

George Townboy said...

Beautiful sunset!

I don't know anything about computers, sorry.

Gaelyn said...

Great SkyWatch sunset. Glad to hear you've got a loaner. Is it Vista?
Hang in there, yours will come.

Ces said...

At least you have a laptop to use. Great hue in the sky. We had beautiful low lying clouds this afternoon and I forgot my camera! Your skies are very colorful for sure, we only have blue, white and grey. We have red, pink and orange during hurricanes and storms.

I don´t know, but it is a great shot and colors.

This is one of those sites which are a must to visit every week. Amazingly enough you produce excellent shots week after week even if you seem to have a lot of computer troubles lately. Whish I could help but I seem to be falling of the band wagon myself lately with all the new developments. Anyway I hope you have a nice and relaxing holiday season and thanks for posting these lovely images for us to see every week.

have a great weekend and hope the laptop behaves!

Sue said...

I hope you get your computers working soon. I am not good at figuring problems out, and my husband, who usually is able to help me, did not know what would be causing your problems.

I like your lovely picture. Thanks for visiting my blog.

The photo is superb. With regards to the problematic laptop: maybe the laptop is the one that needed the coffee :)

Happy weekend.

Pat - An Arkansas Stamper said...

Beautiful colors in your photo, Babooshka.

Hope the laptop settles down into a cooperative mode.

Thanks for your visit to my SWF post today.

Warmest wishes for a Merry Christmas!

Patricia said...

Did you solve the problem with your laptop?

Very nice photo!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Lovely photo. I had all kinds of formatting problems when I used IE. Firefox is better, but sometimes issues still crop up, especially when I cut and paste from MS Word.
Happy SWF!

Melissa's Cozy Teacup said...

Your stuff is always so good. Happy swf and thanks for stopping by!

SandyCarlson said...

I sure do like the warm, intense glow! Great work.

fishing guy said...

Babooshka: What a neat look at the beauty of the sunset, great colors.

Mojo said...

Looks warm and comfy, even though it has to be cold there right now. But yeah, I could look at this every night.

stan said...

Babs, My guess is same as Ruth if you are using IE. Just not a happy marriage with blogger. Safari or Mozilla are the way to go. Thanks for the glowing sunset.

alicesg said...

Very beautiful sunset photo. Love the colours of the sky, it looked like there's fire in the bushes. Have a nice weekend.

April said...

Just a gorgeous sunset!

Great sky picture, too bad about the laptop. Computers are wonderful when they work.

Ms. Hays said...

I like shots like this where the foreground is shadowed & the sun is behind! Hope the laptop straightens out for you!

Hello I cant help with the laptop but the colour in the photo is remarkable. Happy SWF.

Reader Wil said...

Good luck with the laptop. I am afraid I cannot help you there as my daughter always does the difficult parts of my computer. Your sunset is stunning! Thanks for sharing and thanks too for your visit. Yes windmills. I used them once for ABC and maybe I can use them again for My World.

Lindab said...

Computers = frustration in my book, so good luck!

Beautiful skies.

Pagan Sphinx said...

I love the uniformity of the color of the sky in your picture. It's almost like it was tinted. Magical.

angela said...

Glorious sunset...makes me feel warm just looking at it like a nice fire.

Glad to hear you got a loan of a laptop. What a pain computers are..

Have a great weekend.

Titania said...

Hi Babooshka, Your sunset is lovely with the nightfall around the corner, a very peaceful scene
Thank you for stopping by and I wish you a happy Christmas.

What a gorgeous orange. I haven't seen a sky that colour for years - certainly not in Glasgow anyway.

Hope you get to grips with the laptop soon.

Ohhh, that's so lovely! Gorgeous colours... very, very cassatta ice cream-y (I need my sugar fix... can you tell?) I love the way they blend into each other.
BTW, thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Beautiful glowing horizon! Many Christmas wishes to you. Glad you found another laptop to use.

This is very pretty! Isn't it insanely hard to live without a lap top?

BJ Roan said...

Good luck with the laptop! I'm technology challenged, so I have no advice. However, your Sky Watch shot is amazing.

Sorry to hear you are still having PC issues! Beautiful piccie the colours are so rich

Marie said...

Your sky is certainly more colorful than mine today :-)

Mo said...

Great sunset. I love the fine feathery texture of the trees.
The line spacing is a formatting issue. It depends on what software you are using. Is it Mac or PC. Mac I dont know. PC I assume your problem is in word. If so go to Format,Paragraph, Indents and spacing.

J said...

Gorgeous hun.

D Herrod said...

Love the pastels visible in the sky.

bookbabie said...

Very cool fiery sunset:)

Paz said...

Beautiful sky shots!

Mckay K said...

Beautiful sunset. The definition in the trees is stunning. From your picture, I can tell you are a perfectionist. Nevertheless, the spacing of your paragraphs does not take away from your exquisite post.

Have a great weekend!

George said...

An absolutely gorgeous sunset photo. Thanks for sharing.

Dawn said...

Natural Moments said...

Your sunset is like a smooth flowing tapestry of my favourite colours.

Thank you for visiting my post this week. Your sunset colours are so warm. I could use some warmth right about now. We've been below zero for over a week with lots of snow. - Margy
