LAXEY BEACH BLUES - SKYWATCH


Red White and the Blues





As I am still sifting through the Laxey Blues Festival images.I mean no time to go hunt the skies tonight for sunsets and crepuscular clouds(Dewdrop, go see for awesome storm chasing images, will know what I'm talking about) We got clouds, we got blue skies, we got a flash of red to spice up the colour and even got a pebble sand beach. That'll do for you won't it tonight? Just be grateful in wasn't another Swinging bridge image. I mean we only had that yesterday and even I would suggest another one today would be a tad like overkill.

Laxey (Salmon island?) - I enjoyed th way you had kept the details in the foreground and led the eye into the picture. No to mention the light to the right.

Babooshka said...

RuneE -Yep it's one of those Viking words again, Salmon River we say here.

John said...

Another great composed shot.

Well, I like Ramsey but confess I think Laxey is quite nice too!

jabblog said...

Imaginative and clever - beautiful, too!

Robin said...

Laxey is salmon? Like lox! Cool, I've learned something.

Beautiful dramatic clouds. How was the festival? We also spent the weekend at the festival - I got a few shots, but was too busy listening to do much serious shooting.

No matter where it is, it's a beautiful subject for skywatching.

Pam said...

Laxey is pretty as Ramsey, if not prettier. More Facebook images. Can't wait for more rock and blues.

Very good composition and what a lovely place to be.

Great photo of the beach and do like the bridge photo with the bird as well. Thanks for sharing your wonderful views with us all.

Linda said...

Country Living couldn't have done better with its colourways for a marine theme!

m said...

Babs it's so nice to see Laxey so pretty.

Thumbelina said...

Well it's still a great sky shot! And a splash of red in there too. :)

marley said...

Red, white and blue. What more could we want!

Dewdrop said...

Wow! Thanks for the link... you almost worked it into casual conversation. I really appreciate you!

Weather has phenomenal power anywhere... and like you said, can destroy in no time at all.

Dewdrop said...

PS. Great clouds in your shot!

Bim said...

Lovely light and colours!

john said...

I stand on this beach most days and let the dogs out for a run. I never knew how fantastic it looks.

Sylvia K said...

Fabulous shot, as always, Babooshka! Love the light and the colors! I'd also like be there and here some of music. And give Jack Daniels a greeting from me! Have a great weekend!

Gennasus said...

Red,white and blue - great idea.

koala said...

Never mind the pebbles, I see myself chill out on that beach with some shandy or cider & black (yes I keep up with the Polish stereotype and did my time serving in UK bars)

Kitty said...

Nice and nautical! And is that some brave soul in the water, or just a rock?

Brad, Boston said...

Been a while LB. Still at the your of your game.

laxeylass said...

Thank you for ALL the Laxey images. Each one is so special for me but the beach best place of all.

laxeylass said...

Sorry but just one more request? Can you name the musicians in the captions.

Great sky watch shot overlooking the beach. I look forward to those summer days and beach outings. : )

napaboaniya said...

You're pictures are lovely as usual!

Tara R. said...

Something so beautiful about clouds rolling in over the beach.

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

Composition has great visual interest, as does the color scheme for the Yanks out here!

Carver said...

I love this shot. It's funny because the first think I saw was the red and white on the right (hmmm a rhyme) and then kind of expanded out to the whole glorious shot. So nice.

Tabib said...

Nice low clouds formation.
Great composition that include the red-white pole.

magiceye said...

this is a gorgeous composition. the clouds at the top of the frame look just overhead, close enough to touch..
lovely!

kazu said...

Wonderful shot.It is so beautiful sky. Great photo!

White Oleander said...

Happy Friday:)

Olivier said...

magnifique ciel du vendredi.

Lew said...

Still a fine sky to watch (and great photo), even though it's a few kilometers out!

Hilary said...

I crave beach space like this! Brighton is always so busy especially around this time of year. Serene yet dramatic picture.

Grace and Bradley said...

Great shot of the cloud, it almost have a three dimensione filling.

chrome3d said...

Wonderful blues on the beach.

Bibi said...

And I'm off and running on this stretch! Nice!

Wonder Turquette said...

Very nice photography dear Babooshka! Have a great weekend!

Mo said...

We are happy to tour the whole island with you B.

Jim said...

Lets go for a swim!

Greyscale Territory said...

Stunning beach sky! Lots of natural drama!

Karen said...

Love the shot..

I like that little touch of red amongst the grey and the looming clouds :-)

kim said...

Lots of fluffy clouds or are they rain clouds. Picturesque

Lily Hydrangea said...

I love the blue color of the water compared to the blue color of the sky.
This is beautiful.

Halcyon said...

It's a beautiful sky whereever it's from!

Happy Friday!!

Arija said...

Nice shot, missed you on My World this week.

postcardsfromwildwood said...

Great shot. I've been taking photos like this, this afternoon on the Isle of Wight. Beach, blue and grey skies. Very moody. I thought of you a couple of nights ago when Martin Clunes was in Douglas and other parts of Isle of Man for his Islands series. Did you see? Have never been, although am originally from the north (other side of Pennines though). It looks like a great place to visit.

Lisa Wilson said...

That's a great sky!

Susan said...

Wow. The light in the clouds is so beautiful, especially over the stony grey on the beach. Love it!

Willard said...

Very dramatic skies!

Maria said...

Great landscape here, too, and what a beach ;)
Happy swf, weekend, next week, ;))
Hugs, Maria

Island Style said...

I like this one..nobody around. I could see me picking up a pebble and relaxing! Nice-
Aloha

Frank said...

The beach looks so quiet and lonely. Is it cold there right now or is this spot always so empty. It's certainly a "mood" shot.

Jim said...

Hi Babb's, you have another pretty sky picture again. I think we saw the LAXEY BEACH when we went for our hour lunch walk waiting for the train to go back.
I have a French sky today, there isn't a cloud in sight for this one. Other pics do have French clouds.
Happy SkyWatching, :-)

Gaelyn said...

I like the Laxey sky very much, thank you.

sunnymama said...

vincibene said...

Baruch said...

Beautiful clouds rolling over - looks like a promise of rain ..,

Mojo said...

For a shot like this one I'm perfectly willing to overlook the locale. This is gorgeous!
