Au revoir - Skywatch

Beyond the sea

Skywatch


Au revoir for a week or so my little Bloggers. This time next week I will be in France not lost in France, though I would like to be. Yes finally off to the South of France, St Cyprien and Perpignan for a week. Never been to this particular part so anyone been this way shout out. Simply can't wait now 'til Sunday. So next week I will hopefully have some scheduled posts appear but I won't be around to link in to anything. You'll have to check out the blog for me instead and amuse me with your comments and questions. While you do that I will have travelled beyond the sea, over to England, the strip of land you see on the horizon and under the low cloud and then onto France. I don't expect to see this lilac haze sky reflected on the water we get here for another week or so. Instead I'll be swapping it for azures, aquas, a pea greens and of course a darned sight warmer that the somewhat bracing chilly water we have here. Don't be fooled by the lapping silky smooth gently rippling tide rolling in. It's freezing. As you can see too the scene was disturbed by the onset of rain, those little dots in the centre of the image. That of course is when the Nikon goes back in the case. Of course we do not expect any rain in France. The Nikon will be happy.



Off to do some chores before we go. Of course I may not actually come back. Anyone want to offer me a job out there absolutely fine my me, and of course Gary the artist click here too. Artists and photographers like us need live and work in France. Simply the best. I digress. This is about skies, and to see more of those around the world click here.

Have nice trip and think of all those of us who have to stay at home. Remember - we get all the low-pressures after you!

Enjoy your trip. Love the image.

Oh, great shot! Have a grand trip and, yes, think of us here -- wherever home is! Tip a JD for me.

Enjoy!
Cheers!

Whatever you do come back. Purely selfish. Best photography of the island bar none.

Martha Z said...

You'll get tired of the warm weather and blue water, you'll be anxious to get back to Ramsey before the week is out--Sure you will.

Au revoir, Babooshka. A bien tôt! Hope you find your azures, aquas, pea greens and maybe some bright yellow tournesols too... And maybe bring some back here for us all to share...?!
