Artistic slant - Skywatch

Alternative viewpoint


Been a few weeks since my last Skywatch. Going for something a little different. Call it bored on the beach and looking for inspiration before that cloud which had been following me dropped it's heavy load. It did. Not before I got a range of from the ground images. Who would like to live here then? Those flats/apartments really do overlook the Irish Sea, over to England, Scotland and Wales based on Mooragh Promenade. Sure more Mooragh images will pop up along the bottom of the post for you to check out. Just behind this block of flats you will find more of my my favourite photography haunts Mooragh Park, Mooragh Lake and of course the rugby pitch. I did promise you I would lay off the rugby images on the blog for a while, but they are so hard to resist posting. I may have to drop another one on for skywatch soon, without the moody clouds above.


Leave you with the moody shot and looking into something I found out we used to have here.... a carnival and a campaign to bring it back. Now everyone loves a carnival and I could really do with that to photograph. Save that one for next week when I have more info. You know me and a campaign....and this time I am not a lone voice. More Skywatch images can be found here after 8pm GMT.
Ramsey Daily Photo now has a shiny new Facebook page where you can see more photos here. Exciting eh! I should also say as it is Thursday I will be in the pub.

Great shot as always! Love the perspective and the angle and lovely skies as well! Hope you have a great weekend, Babooshka!

Often for me, visiting blogs leads to fantasies of relocation. So many images hold such allure. This, Babooshka, is one of those times...imagining living in one of those flats looking over the Irish Sea. Wonderful.

I'll do my best to have a cracking weekend Sylvia. Brattcat, it's persisting down with rain, very cold and really windy. Not the stuff of fantasies today. True on a good day. Marvellous view.

Wonderful skywatch!!

Martha Z said...

You do have an interesting angle, but then, you do seem to enjoy being different.

About time you were back. Never boring photography. Welcome back.

The structure is amazing! With the sky in the background, it just looks very beautiful!

thanks for this moody shot. sometimes when all you see is blue skies, you long for those grey moody skies.

Carver said...

I love the way you shot this with the angled building and sky above. I'm not surprised that you said it did ending up pouring rain because that's what it looks like. I like stormy skies although nice to get some blue too.

Babooshka: Very neat shot with your artsy slant.

I diagnose subsidence, or a non matched pair of heals!

Babooshka said...

Funny your should say that about subsidence Rob, believe it or not we did actually have a mini landslide on the the island. Not my doing or Fleetwood Mac's.

Fun view from that angle of a changing sky. Thanks for adding to our Sky Watch Friday party.

syel said...

interesting perspective. the old building seems huge!

Dewdrop said...

Lovely moody shot. Exciting angle. Sounds like a great view from the apartments.

Unusual angle.

Vicky said...

This is a great sky!!!!!

Matty said...

It looks like a lovely building, and you gave it quite a different look with the angle. Lots of clouds and a bit of blue sky are nice.

Peter said...

I have for some reason for too long neglected your blog! Sorry!

To vary the skywatch from one Friday to the other is not an easy task! Of course you manage!

Gill - That British Woman said...

I love the angle of that shot, makes both the building and sky look so large........

Peter- it is I who has neglected the blog due to a laptop in a coma holding my images to ransom. Slowly getting back into the groove. Must get round to visiting others. V's sin bin awaits me.

I thought when I looked at this it must be a government building but flats - to live in - be still my little bit of Irish heart as I pull up a chair and gaze at the Irish sea!
Love the moody sky!

Flats? Really! I suspect they are not within my budget but it costs nothing to dream. I love how the colours are similar in the building and the sky but the textures are different.
