MULTI COLOURED SKY - SYKWATCH

Rainbow Sherbet Dip Anyone?




Cracking sky . Never had one since like this. Been here 6 years too. As you may recall I grabbed G, and the camera(not that he wanted to be dragged out at that times of night with hayfever through a field, bless) and bolted over to the Poyll Dooey nature reserve about 10pm and rattled off about 50 images as quick as you like before the last light faded. Not my usual leisurely stroll over to the meadow. Actually broke a sweat to capture these, which is not good for the world's laziest photographer you know!


The last time I showed the others from the night someone commented that they call these skies Rainbow Sherbet Dip skies. I have seen that same statement a lot recently. I like it. It really sums up this multi coloured against the silhouetted trees. Yes there is a lone bird in there too, which isn't in the others. Notice though what colour you don't see? Green. There are reasons, but that's for another times. As usual no pixels were hurt in the making of the images. Just captured, not manipulated. I'm sure I'll get another sky like this again here, just might have to wait another 6 years. To see others click the sherbet colours below and dip in. Fill ya boots!

Wonderful photo
!Really beautiful to see!Thank you for sharing!Have a nice weekend!

Mo said...

I can so relate to the dragging one's loved one at great haste to grab some amazing light before it goes. Generally puts me in a big debt in the brownie points dept. Still I'm sure you can pay yours with a few JD's or what G's tipple is. All I can say is it was worth what ever it cost to race across that field to grab images like these.

m_m said...

Wonderful! Love the colours!

Sara G said...

WOW, that is an incredible looking sky!
Thanks for sharing.
Happy SWF

JuJu said...

The silhouette adds weight and an anchor to the scene. Far out and tripping.

My Dad would always say, "Red sky at night, Shepherds' Delight" - have no idea what this means but maybe an old English rural saying.

Great pictures Babooshka. Love your site.

Anne said...

Nice picture, and great text!!!

Love from Norway

VALKYRIEN said...

I can see it is not only the Viking sky that can have great colors! :) Must have been wonderful to see such fire in the sky!

WOW, I agree that the colors are similar to my husband's shot. Fantastic shot, well worth the work I'd say.

What a fantastic sky and so many colours just beautiful

Tarolino said...

Sherbert and cream doughnuts. Mmmm.

I love your description and it is spectacular. Your note about not hurting any pixels made me chuckle too. But yeah! It was well worth breaking a sweat for.

vincibene said...

Fantastic gorgeous picture!

marley said...

Creamy doughnuts and sherbert dip! Double yummy! Lol.

Loved this sky back then and love it now. Round of applause for the shot and the sweat! :)

Gill - That British Woman said...

in answer to your question. Eastenders we are around September 2006. Coronation Street we are a good nine months behind (I think) Liz and Vernon are splitting up at the moment.

fishing guy said...

Babooshka: What a beaty, such a wonderful colored sky. You could lok at it forever and still see more.

Connie said...

Beautiful colors spilling across the sky. Great sky photo.

Rob Inukshuk said...

A very apt name for that stunning sky. Good capture, even if you had to run for it. For skies like that, I might run too!

Dusty Lens said...

Gorgeous sky! but you knew that already. Thanks for practicing safe pixilating. We need our pixels un-manipulated. hooboy, too much Jack Daniels. he's onlyt one of the three wise men, you know. I'm a good pal of Jim Beam. Not too sure about that johnny Walker character, though. OK, ok, I'll stop.

susieofarabia said...

That is one amazing rainbow sherbet sky!!! Those colors are fantastic. What I'd give to have half the great photos in my archives as you do!!!

Loving the sherbert sky! Thanks for the warm welcome.

Beautiful sky...thanks for sharing.

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

Oh woman of the 60+ comments:

The colors hover at both ends of the spectrum (red + purple) of light. We are in there, somewhere in the middle.

You one is far north is the last light is fading at 10pm!

raf said...

Wow, you really did get all the rainbow colors into your sherbet dip, Baboosh. Splendiferous Sky Watch!

Jacob said...

Very striking...the colors we get in the skies depends some on the dirt and other junk in the air. These colors were common when we were in Colorado last September.

Gorgeous and well-composed photo!

All work and no cakies is not good...hmm...that's a catchphrase!
BTW, think I'm just as, if not even lazier, lay back as you are. I have loads of excuses not to take my cameras out with me. no time, bad weather, bad day, no mood, being stuck. LOL.
