Sky Watch Friday

 
 
 
 
Posted by Picasa


This is exactly what I saw last week Saturday.


Loosen your hands,
Let go and say good-bye.
Let the stars and songs go.
Let the faces and years go.
Loosen your hands and say good-bye.

Carl Sanburg

I fell for the second one with the framing of the two trees. It gave a special feeling.

How beautiful, the pink and blue, with the silhouette of the trees adding drama! Wow!

jeannette stgermain said...

Great skies you caught with your lens -high winds here today, so everything that's loose is rattling outside.
Can't keep up with your prolific blogging :) - just read the Australian song - yes, full of emotion. It's good to remember some things, but also good to forget some things.
cheers.

vincibene said...

Gorgeous pictures, I love the colors and the silhouettes of the branches.

Louise said...

The color is so soft, yet vivid. I love that darker cloud in front.

VALKYRIEN said...

I love the colour - and the second one! The two trees makes it really special!

The two crooked trees sure make a statement about the will to survive
in whatever shape it takes.

Beautiful pink sky...the kind you want to hold on to and say, "Don't go away." But it does all too soon...except yours in these lovely photos. Your grandkids are cute and smile pure sunshine.

Mooi die kleuren! En met het silhouet van de boom op de voorgrond knap gedaan.

Miss_Yves said...

Le poème et la photo sont vraiment en accord!

RuneE said...

Re comments to B & W: I beg to differ - I see no reason to leave the use of b & W to Hitchcock and other purveyors of fear and darkness. There is too much beauty in all aspects of life. The patterns, shapes and contrasts that exist often drown in the blaze of colours. The simplification that B & W can bring might show it.

That is just one aspect.

JoAnn's-D-Eyes said...

hi Wil,
Great sky , do you know why the sky is red? Someone asked me on my blog, tobe honest I do not know for sure:)

Happy weekend happy skywatch

RuneE said...

Me again: Thank you for "the comment on comment"! I have written this also on my own blog:

I think we are much closer in what we see in the use of B & W - the differences in approach, goal and what can be expressed, but also in what cannot be expressed.

Thank your for the praise, but I'm still at the bottom of the ladder! :-)

Find that poem very conforting reader wil. I am losing a great friend to cancer, slowly - she is going away this weekend to a nursing home far away, so it really is goodbye - that poem helps a lot.

Miss_Yves said...

"DERISOIRE "signifie:
insignifiant, infime, négligeable, petit, minime, anodin,sans importance, banal, quotidien.
Cependant, il y a une certaine ironie dans l'emploi de ce mot:
These things, these fragments don't seem important, however, they are important.

Idon't know how to translate this meaning in English.

Pam said...

Beautiful sky shots, thank's for sharing ;)

alicesg said...

Lovely series of photos for SWF. I love your header photo, your three grandchildren are so cute and lovely. The cave behind them has some pictures, they must be left behind by ancient people. Very interesting.

Tarolino said...

Yuo did loosen your hans around the camera and the result is just great. Such vivid pink tones that you were blessed with. Love it.

Gramma Ann said...
