Sky Watch #15



Hi everyone. I hope you have all had a won
derful week.

Two weeks ago, on a Saturday evening, I went out onto the front steps for a moment, and looked up to the east. The moon was almost full, and there seemed to be streaks of pink in the sky. Even with my little point and shoot camera, I thought it looked pretty good.



I went through the house and out on the back deck. It looked even better, but the color of the sky had changed.




I turned toward the west.





And then I started into the house, and caught this picture in the window.



I continued inside and called my friend, Lisa, to tell her to go out and look at the sky. She took one look and said, "Let's go up to the bay." That's where we headed.
Others had the same idea and were there ahead of us.



















Finally we got back into the car. The batteries in my camera were dwindling, but after a few minutes I tried once more, through the windshield.





Please go to Sky Watch, where Tom, Sandy, Klaus, Ivan, Fishing Guy, Wren and Imac - in other words, the whole team, work so hard to bring us these pictures every week.

Hi! These are all very beautiful. It was fun to go to the bay on the spur of the moment. And what a beautiful sunset it was. Well worth it and your photo's show it. Lisa

Absolutely gorgeous! There is something about the sun setting over the water that is just breathtaking. That's what I love about being here in Seattle.

Aileni said...

I think I would hoard those sunsets like gold and let them out slowly to amaze and astound over a period of months of SW.
The window reflection is great too.

Louise said...

I LOVE sky adventures like yours. It's so wonderful in all directions (the reflection in the window was incredible), then you drive and still get more. Very nice post!

So many varied sky pics! It was indeed a purple sunset. It looks so serene.

Just amazing ! looks almost unreal !

storyteller said...

What a gorgeous series of photos here … all are lovely, but the last three give me chills. Interestingly this week I tried a ‘moon’ shot of my own (albeit in the early morning therefore in the west) as the sun rose in the east. I’ve shared at Sacred Ruminations today. Hope you have a wonderful weekend too ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Daryl said...

Oh Bobbie, these are just wonderful ...
