Sky Watch in Castricum

 
 
 
 
The sky over our heads changes every time. I find it most interesting how a blue sky can turn into a night sky, and especially when the sun is setting. I keep taking pictures of sun sets.

It is well known that we Portuguese once sailed the seven seas searching for new lands, wealth and adventures.
We were brave in those days and gave the world new worlds!

Luckily I don’t have to sail the big oceans on a small ship to sea the wonders of our world …
No Sir, I just need to check with Mr. Tom, the finest host there is, for a trip around the world with SKY WATCH TOURS and with a click here, a click there I am quickly in the USA, England, Brazil, Italy, China, Australia, Finland … well, everywhere.

And on each stop I come to see a little marvel of our world under a great sky!
Hope you can come and see my piece of the sky at lenses & visions

Hi Wil,

I hope things are peaceful and beautiful there where you are. It is lovely here in Ohio.

Me and Pat are doing OK.

I think this is going to be the best Sky Watch Friday yet. The things I have seen are very encouraging and the photography is spot on.

I really admire your photography skills and your critical eye for composition, lighting and texture.

Wil, Magnificent shots of a peaceful to less than peaceful sky... I especially love the last one, but I am into that kind of thing. Thank you so much for sharing.

Beautiful photos, Wil, as usual. The last one here is stunning!

Love the sunset silhouetting the foreground and the way it dips in the centre makes it look like it's cradling the sun to sleep fantastic photo well done.

I like your very first image, Wil. I like the largeness of the sky in comparison with the smallness of the people. Good composition.
