Sky Watch Friday - Fire in the Sky


I took these photos late one afternoon quite awhile ago, when we were walking on the beach down in front of our house.

The colours haven't been enhanced - this was exactly how it looked.



Pop over and check out the other Sky Watch posts here.

Crikey, that's just too magnificent for words.

One minute after midnight.
Don't forget, a girl needs her beauty sleep, blogging is such a trap, ain't it.

Okay, okay. Now I'm going to go home and slam all the doors.

Jilly said...

This should be a template for how to do it! Fire in the Sky indeed and what a fire! Just fantastic photograhs. Congratulations Jules. I'm in awe.

Katie said...

Fabulous! I know you hate it when the internet goes down there, but at least you can sit and gawk at the amazing sky. I just want to sit and stare at your photos on my computer really really hand and try to magically transport myself there!

That is an amazing view out your door. Beautiful, beautiful.

Julie said...

These are very intruiging, Jules. I think it is the little island that adds the mystery. A silhouette will do it every time for me.

babooshka said...

Magnificent. What a image for me to wake up to here.

Marit - "Som Mine Dager Er" said...

Stunning views... the little island looks beautiful out there.. great shot Jules.... I got your message about next week.. I have made a not to remind me..:O)

Jules said...

Thanks Tom - you're a darl'!!!

M.Benaut said...

Sounds like a shipload of kissin' comin', cousin !
If I get kissed by a Frenchman, I'll just have to deal with it at the time. Or I could bring some back in a jar for you. Then what'm I gunna doo ?

Jules said...

M B - Keep the lid screwed on tight, pop it in the freezer (to keep them fresh) and I'll work out how to get them here!!!

Ann (MobayDP) said...

Jules that sky is nothing short of amazing! Beautiful my dear girl.

Thank you so much for the well wishes. I think every tropical island has some sort of connection. There are always so many similarities, even if there are no cultural or historical connections at all.

One of the reasons I stopped was because I just couldn't find time to post, answer the comments and go visiting throughout the CDP community! :-) I will be visiting more regularly now. I've missed out on so many of your pictures that I now have to go back through the archives!

Talk about a sunset walk. If that doesn't soothe the soul, then the soul can't be soothed.

Louis la Vache said...

Fantastic Sky Watch, Jules!

Jules said...

Ann - will miss visiting your wonderful island but hope you can pop in and say hi so we don't lose contact!!!!

Steve & Louis - many thanks!!!

Arija said...

There's nothing like palms against a sunset...simply stunning. Love your dunnies, mum and dad and sense of humour. Last week's skywatch piccies were bonza too.

Louise said...

Oh my! Can I come for a visit? What beautiful colors with wonderful surroundings. Excellent pictures.

Jules~ said...
