BLUE SKIES OR STORMY WEATHER? - SKYWATCH

Do blue skies have purple rain?

Skywatch


Blogger is being a pain so I have to just leave you with this rinkie dink image today.
The text is just not being posted right and I'm working and no time to mess about with it.


This week was my one year blog anniversary. Thank you again.


Other images to compare perspective.
Wish you were here
Far and Away
Big Sky
Billowing Clouds



Back to say this is the jetty along the harbour.




Skywatch watchers can be found here. Many thanks to Dot for the inspirational idea, Tom for the first care taking and the My world gang for looking after skywatch now.

Wonderful pic - shame that blogger wouldn't play nice!

Pagan Sphinx said...

Beautiful, as always.

Blogger's always giving me headaches.

Is it your blog's anniversary or a wedding anniversary?

Have a great weekend!

istanbuldailyphoto said...

The sky looks angry.

Kitty said...

I usually get blogger issues - especially with the spacing of paragraphs and have to stick in asterisks the same colour as my background to make things look ok.

Great picture! I would say it wasn't going to come to rain for a while.

Brian Miller said...

ah but a wonderful pic it is...guess will have to wait til tomorrow for one of your amazing stories of the isle.

Louise said...

Happy Anniversary!!! Sorry for your blogging issues. Your picture makes up for your lack of cheerfulness, but then again, your lack of cheerfulness lends an amusing note to your text! For your sake hope that problem clears up soon!

Guy D said...

Congrats on the Anniversary, great photo as always.

Have a great weekend!

Babooshka said...

Louise, yes that made sense and it has been noted my issues amuse people.

Sylvia K said...

Ah, Babooshka, you always manage to make my day whether with your beautiful photos or your super sense of humor. Sorry you're having blog problems, I've had some, too. They seem to be gone for now -- but who knows???? It's a lovely Sky Watch shot regardless and I look forward to the next installment. And Happy Anniversary!

marley said...

I've just got issues! Haven't posted yet so not sure about blogger issues, though it is always acting like a naughty little boy!

Great skywatch photo. I bet purple rain is a nice change :)

JM said...

I like the perspective of the pier. And the great sky too, of course!

Jim said...

Very pretty, Babs. No, blue clouds rain clear blue water. Most of it falls in the ocean, you can see the blue color there.

Congrats on your first anniversary blogging. I had my third in December. I have delisted my Jim's Little Blog (3-yr plus) but still post on it. Until we finish our travels in May I will only use the Jim's Little Photo and Poem Place (2-yr plus).

I don't have any water in my post but do have a couple of older cars. :-)

Lovely puffy clouds above the lighthouse!
CONGRATS on the anniversary! You have given us many wonderful posts and I know that will continue.
Pass the JD and we'll toast to your accomplishment!

My post is here: Carletta’s Captures.

imac said...

Hello Bunny, Mines a little slow but thats all.

Love that sky of yours tho.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Happy anniversary! It's not very nice of Blogger to spoil your day.

Karl said...

Tissues and issues. No worries. Happy day.

Lois said...

I like it! Happy anniversary and happy SkyWatch!

susieofarabia said...

Rinky Dink shot? You've got to be kidding me! Sorry Blogger's giving you grief on your Bloggoversary! Go have a couple of JDs and you'll get over it!

mononeil said...

Be careful with the JD's or you might miss another day !

Erwin (BE) said...

I do not know if they give purple rain, but it will be close. Great view of that large sky.
Lovely view with the pier a lighthouse.

J Bar said...

Those clouds just hanging around there look like they are about to drop at any moment.

Shaun said...

Do you take an image then see the music or do you fit the image around the music? Very clever and creative, but Captain Pluton is mega.

Virginia said...

Blogger, Grrrrrrr'
Great photo. Makes me want to be there with the sea breeze blowing.

Today's Blah... said...

I love the platform on the side, it'd be a cool place to be there. The cloud show is also something. I wonder if there is purple rain.

BTW, blogger is having outage 4pm PDT 2/25 and 2/26.

Happy Blogosary!

Babooshka said...

Shaun-Image first. Here's a trade secret but don't tell anyone else shhh! I only decide on the post just before I start writing, so a title will pop into my head. Maybe it's divine inspiration. It works so I leave it that way.

V- Yoy can bring the FB wine.

alicesg said...

Lovely photo of the sky for SWF. Congratulations on the first year blog anniversary. Have a nice weekend.

Kilauea Poetry said...

Ah babs,a dinkie image is so big and bonnie.

Nothing rinky dink there. That is very beautifully done.

Grammy said...

Such a beautiful blue sky I love the color. Happy SWF !

TCKK said...

I think it's a great picture. Happy 1 year blogaversary

Carver said...

It's not just you, blogger has been erratic for me too. I think that's a beautiful shot. I love the big rain cloud on the blue sky.

Denise said...

Happy Anniversary. Great picture, love the photo, beautifully composed and that's a magnificent sky.

Congratulations on your anniversary! You've done mighty good work in that time. Beautiful clouds in this picture!

Those are really beautiful clouds!

Champ Townboy said...

So rinkie dink! LOL

You are awesome. Happy blogo-versary.

Indrani said...

Happy anniversary!
Blue skies and purple rain?! :)

mountain.mama said...

I would love purple rain to come out of blue skies!

Sometimes blogger cooperates and sometimes I want to take a hammer to it.

Great picture with a lot of energy in it.

Tricia said...

It isn't a rinky dink photo to me - It's very beautiful in my opinion! I love that sky!!!

Gaelyn said...

Why not Purple Rain? Congrats on you blogaversay!

With dial-up I never know if problems are blogger or not. Tonight with high winds I could get bumped off at any time. The trailer is rocking.

Great capture!

Jim said...

No blogger issues......today. Nice skywatch, I will take blue skies.

Carolyn said...

None the less a beautiful photo, I love the clouds. Happy anniversary. I thought it was me when I couldn't get things right on my post! Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.

Robert V. Sobczak said...

I love walking out on piers like that!

Naturegirl said...

Great image! I hate it when Blogger does not co-operate!

Lilli & Nevada said...

wonderful shot, Purple rain, HMMMM! would love to see that

gogouci said...

Purple Rain? I think I saw it in a movie once so it must be.

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

Greetings Babooshka. Purple rain would be fun to see. Sounds like a great opening line to a children's story. Perhaps this great photo could grace the cover!!!

Happy skywatch Friday!

Lew said...

Only the Prince has purple rain! But have beautiful xlouds in your skies.

Larry Jordan said...

Babooshka, happy blogoversary! Gorgeous skywatch photo. I,love your blog! Keep up the good work!

Tammie Lee said...

Love the heavy feel to the clouds above the gorgeous ocean!

RuneE said...

The picture was great, so that worked OK, and there are always some Blogger issues.

Tom said...

Nice Pic. You should download and use windows live writer as a desktop publisher, u`ll never have to worry with blogger`s formatting. give it a try. worth it.

Olivier said...

composition originale, avec ce ciel qui mange toute la photo. Superbe ciel
original composition, with the sky eating whole picture. Beautiful sky

hitch writer said...

beautiful !

Sally said...

Great contrast.

loulee said...

Great image. I tried to get images of the sky yesterday, but I have a new camera and need to play with the settings. All my images so far have been disappointing.

Old Wom Tigley said...

Another beautiful image from you...
I am so sorry that I missed the Ist anniversay of your excellent blog... well done for keeping it up and putting up with us commenting.. :O)

Here to the next year.

Tom

Mo said...

Purple rain. Sure would like to see that. Sometimes if I have problems with blogger then I find using firefox rather than windows resolves the problem.

Julie said...

Wonderful image!
Have a great weekend!

Kyle said...

Terrofic as always. Happy 0ne year.

Lori Lynn said...

Happy Anniversary. Here's a JD.

pantteri said...

Blue sky, blue clouds and blue sea. Beautiful to look at. Happy anniversary.

Elisabeth's bright side said...

Congratulations and your blue sky is just beautiful and the perspective is very deep too.
Blogger and me we defenitly don't like each other. Until I find something better I use Windows Live Writer. Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend!

auringonkukka finland =) said...

so beautiful photo :)
have a nice weekend!

Small City Scenes said...

No but purple skies has blue rain. MB

Gattina said...

What a sky ! and I love these light houses ! reminds me my holidays in Eastbourne !
I don't care which color the rain has, I just wish it wouldn't rain !
We are too spoiled with it here in Belgium.

Mojo said...

Oh I just hate it when Blogger gets in a mood. But I love this photo! The subtle threat of the clouds, the sweeping curve of the ... curvy thing at the lower right and the two... what are those anyway? Even embiggened I couldn't tell. Look like pint sized lighthouses or something. anyway, they keep you engaged. And you know I'm always captivated by large expanses of water reaching the horizon.

But purple rain? If I ever see that, I may have to check in somewhere.

syel said...

congratulations! looks like heavy downpour ahead, although its marvelous just looking at the clouds :D

Syaa_Fiqq said...

Such a beautiful scenery. Good work. Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a nice weekend..

Kelly said...

Lovely skywatch!

Erin said...

bowledover said...

You know that book I spoke about, you will add your own photography too.
Wonderful picture.
Took me a while to know what JD was.
Happy blogaversary
Have a smashing weekend.

Babooshka said...

Mojo- That are lightouses. I will have to show you the up close ans personal views of them.

SCS- Purple skies blue rain, just cracked me up.

Tom - You never bother me with comments, the opposite. Good to have you back, especially posting your own.

Babzy said...

happy anniversary and great sky , i love the clouds !

Deslilas said...

80 congratulations for your post birthday !

David Brew said...

Belated congratulations. You make me laugh and the photography is first rate.

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Happy blogiversary to you, very nice shot. Now knock back that JD and blogger will be back to norm' before you know it!

Jan K. alias Afanja said...

For a rinkie dink image it's not bad at all. I love it. :-)
Congratulations with your blogging birthday.
I hope Blogger wil be ok soon, so you can enjoy your weekend.

Cezar and Léia said...

Wonderful sky!Great blog!

Kind Regards
Léia :-)

Daryl said...

You have the best eye for composition and I just love this shot!

Lisa Wilson said...

Beautiful shot! Blogger was acting up yesterday afternoon. I think maybe it had something to do with their scheduled outage for maintenance.

Dewdrop said...

I'm so glad you are enjoying the lessons in my blog... knowledge is safety! I love your rinkie dink image. The clouds are so interesting...

Mariz said...

Beautiful blue sky, but looks like heavy downpour is ahead. Great shot, love the perspective. Happy Blogiversary! Congrats =)

bobbie said...

a wonderful shot. Maybe they do have purple rain!

Congratulations on your blogaversary!!!

nadia said...

That is such a gorgeous shot!

Happy blog anniversary!

Marie said...

I don't know what rinkie dink means but I find the photo very pretty. Happy anniversary to your blog!

fishing guy said...

Babooshka: What a neat look at the clouds over the break wall. You captuered it with a great view.

Mediterranean kiwi said...

wow, so much blue!

John said...

As always a well catured and composed image.
Have a nice weekend.

Mary said...

Any one image you take is worth looking at, no matter what Blogger is doing :-) The sky makes the lighthouse look so small for the work it must do! I hate it when Blogger won't format the way I want. I waste so much time taking out blank spaces and getting it set right and then it only stays that way if I do a scheduled post.

Gail's Man said...

I've never seen it rain cats and dogs yet. Maybe if it did, I'd get to see some white dog poo again!

Violet said...

Happy Blogiversary.
Yeah, blogger's been a bit of a pain for me lately, too.

That sky looks so out of porportion to the land. Magnificent.

cara said...

Happy anniblogaversary! You're doing a fabulous job. Pictures and text are an inspiration to me and I'm sure many others. There was a note saying that Blogger was going to have an outage on Thursday at 4pm PDT - maybe that was the problem? Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog - hope you enjoyed the JD!

Linnea W said...

Happy blogiversary! Congrats...your photos have brought a lot of "ohhs" and "ahhs" to other bloggers around the world. Today's SWF is another great scene. Love those clouds...and the water...

Arija said...

Oh so beautiful with the stillness of the sea surmounted by those great dynamic clouds.

FA said...

Sorry about your blogger issues. I have trouble sometimes, too. However, these issues didn't hinder the viewing of an awesome photo. Thanks for stopping by monasterydailyphoto.

Tootie said...

I see blue sky and clouds, now I wonder what was the outcome. :-) Very pretty photo!

chrome3d said...

There is clouds of Cream and Purple Rain from the clouds. Dolphins swim in that sea. The Most Beautiful Girl In The World snapped the photo. She was wearing Diamonds And Pearls. Blogger was behaving badly which is just a Sign O´The Times.

All that if it´s a Prince-y world out there and today it must be.

magiceye said...

breathtaking image!!

Lindab said...

Not a clue about weather-y things, but I know a lovely sky when I see it!
Much Blogger pain here, especially in accessing other sites.

Happy anniversary!

NORWOOD UNLEASHED said...

Happy Blogiversary too!

I'd love to see the purple rain. I've had minimal issues with blogger.. Maybe.. with new templates. But I work on a Mac and at work on a pc. Windows doesn't format or upload images as well.. some of it is impacted by network security but the formatting is always off.

Lovely brooding clouds :)

Interesting question ... marvelous capture!
Hugs and blessings,
