Sunshine on a cloudy day - Skywatch


Even clouds have a lighter side


Today not my words of wisdom, just another oh so cloudy day taken in the nature reserve, looking over the hedge. Well more like through at my height. I know you love the thoughts of Queen B, my rants, raves and dark, dark humour, but I noticed this comment left yesterday by a fellow blogger.and as they have a closed blog gives me here the opportunity to answer the question. Yes I am out of breath after that sentence. Sure you are too.

Here's the comment.

I found your blog quite by accident while looking for the name of a fish and chip shop in the center of Ramsey. I'm from the US, and lived on the IOM from early 2005 until mid-2007 and back in the states now. I miss the island incredibly and loved reading your blog. It's brought back so many familiar memories and emotions. Thanks for that.

Ellen

Don't blush Ellen being the star of the blog today. Not often I turn the precious blog over verbally to another. To answer the question the chippy is the Trawlerman. I will have to sneak a pic for you and next time I have a bag of chips I'll let you know. You can email me anytime if you have anything you want to know. Just wanted to reply to this lovely, genuine comment. Now stop blushing Ellen.

More fabulous skies can be seen here

Still a little non bloggy. My real life needs by attention too at the moment. I know it's a drag for you, but I do get to catch up with some very old friends.

I like the highlighted clouds so much. They remind me of really fresh sea air.

Texas Travelers said...

Great photo and I enjoyed the personal touch.

Photo Cache said...

Only virtual visitors Daryl, bit old, old friends.

Fantastic shot, as always, Babooshka, the clouds are gorgeous! And how neat for you to answer your viewer in your post! I'm sure she appreciated that!

Enjoy your weekend!

Tranquility said...

Wow - that is such a perfect, beautiful sky! I love the bright light reflection off all those clouds!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

I'm surprised to learn you had to look through the hedge to get this photo. For some reason I imagined you to be very tall. Funny, eh?

Babooshka said...

Well I can levitate EG.

Steffi said...

Great shoot and I agree with the other comments- I enjoyed the personal touch.
Have a nice weekend!

Mojo said...

I'd imagine you just whistle and some of the faerie folk come to give you a boost. After all you do for them? Seems the least they could do. Especially for light like this.

Gaelyn said...

Love your sunny clouds, especially the way you captured them in the bowl of the horizon. Have fun at the pub taking pics for Ellen.

Pam said...

So you are a witch then? Magical.

Carver said...

Fantastic shot. So much depth to it.

Rob Inukshuk said...

Great cloudy sky shot and restaurant info guide to boot!

Dewdrop said...

It warms my heart when people stumble upon my blog in that way and care enough to drop a note, a kind word which lifts my spirits and makes me feel that all my efforts are worthwhile.

Gail's Man said...

The singer is Zoe, if anyone was wondering. One of the few decent songs to come out of the 90's. You can tell my age from that comment!

I haven't skywatched for a while, so your photo has prompted me to put one on.

Rune said...

This image is fantastic!

cara said...

Fabulous shot! Wow! Thanks for sharing.

marley said...

Very dramatic!

Glad Ellen's comment got special attention. It deserved it. Comments like these help keep us bloggers going. Even when we really can't be bothered.

I'm aiming to post every day this year. It is almost draining. I don't know how Eric and a few others do it! Roll on New Years Eve!

Have a good weekend B.

J Bar said...

A great capture.

It's such a great delight to see a frame like this.

Lew said...

Sometimes, even with the beautiful sea all around, it's nice to look inland. Great shot over the hills! And fish and chips sound good.

Maria said...

It was a happy accident !
And a so fine pic.

Bibi said...

Exciting sky... Our sky is now a bit rainy, but I'm hoping for better tomorrow...!

Jackie said...

What a fabulous photo. I haven't seen a sky like that for ages. It seems to be either rich blue or murky grey, and nothing much in between.

Pearl Maple said...

How nice for someone to leave a comment for you like that. Goes to show that blogging makes for all kinds connections.

Lovely photo too, looks like a pretty afternoon for a walk outside.

Looks like it was a great day. An email like you got will make for a great day no matter the weather.

Great clouds..... we've had nowt but dull overcast skies... so I've skipped Sky Watch this week... but still got my 'fix' by visiting others.

Jan K. said...

It's a beautiful shot of that cloudy sky. I love the depth in your photo.

What a special looking sky! It seems like the yearly carnaval of the clouds. :)

Laurie said...

Ooh, you could get lost in that sky. So beautiful, Queen B!

Anonymous said...

Always so special.

Carraol said...

Ah, beautiful sky and a nice personal touch. Thanks a lot for your most kind visits.

Per Stromsjo said...

The kind of sky which can't make up its mind. Dramatic or nice, which is it going to be?

Chuck Pefley said...

Babooshka, my real life has needed my attention lately as well. Seems I've gotten sidetracked with earthly rather than "ether" type activities. We do get some nice comments from total strangers now and again, eh?

Blognote said...

A dramatically beautiful sky suitable for all moods!

Marie Reed said...

Clouds have a lighter side and such a beautiful silver lining!
