Skyhill Sunset - # Skywatch 83

Fiery


I'm going to keep this really, really short and sweet and just leave you with the image of a snow capped Skyhill under a fiery sunset. No waffling about life here on Toytown Island, mainly as I'm heading out later to hit the one horse town and actually get on with life so I can blog about it. Sure there is some logic in there, or a valid excuse to go for a drink. Back now after a gap of about a month. Caught the dreaded swine flu, which was rather annoying as I have not drunk with any swine for weeks! Ha Ha! I'm still doing humour though, this is not a travelogue.


For other skies of the world see here after 7.30pm

Sorry about the swine flu and particularly since you hadn't been foolin' around with any swines!!! You sound pretty much back to normal though -- well, as close as you and I ever get to that!! Gorgeous skies for the day and what a hell of a way to end any day! Fantastic! Get back to having fun and have a drink for me!!

That sunset is beautiful. When was this taken?

Winchester Daily Photos said...

Gorgeous sky, was this taken in the IOM? The skies down our way are just grey right now!

It was indeed taken in the IOM, Ramsey. I'm lucky enough to live here and that was the view looking from the promenade upto Skyhill about a month ago.

Glad you are feeling better. Enjoy a pint or two and wash away the last vestiges of the flu.

Gorgeous sunset, - not so good with the flu! It's always important to watch who you cavort with.

Love your photo. It's fiery but yet there is softness in the clouds that appeared in your photo.

OH dear! NOT the flu! I hope you get well soon. I'm glad you still have a great sense of humour. (I;m a grouch when I feel sick.) Beautiful sky!

Now, if you'd only been able to catch the flying pigs before they disappeared behind the snow-capped mountain ......... must use a higher shutter speed next time -:)
