SKYWATCH FRIDAY (Sun-up to sun-down)


I woke up to this dramatic sunrise this week, it is another one of those almost abstract scenes.


Great! I thought, I can use those images for Skywatch Friday. Then when I came home from work on the same day I saw the sunset!
I tried really hard to get the new moon in focus but I obviously need to take more water with my whisky!! Or maybe more whisky with my water! Whatever, sorry it isn't quite clear.


It was definitely a two for one skywatch day.

For images of the sky from around the world, check out Skywatch Friday.

Lucky and talented you! The moods you caught are awesome! Dawn peeking through dark. That crescent moon against the brilliant colors and the building silhouettes. Glad I found you via SWF.
