Sky Watch Friday

This rather dramatic cloud hung around while we snorkelled one Sunday on Little Pigeon Island.

Couldn't decide whether I liked it in B&W or colour - so posted them both!!!


Check out Sky Watch Friday skies here.

Hi there. It is so nice to be back in blog land and get to come by and visit with you today. I love these photos. You are right it is hard to decide which is more appealing. They each stand on their own because of the cropping.

Great capture, I like the b&w the best.

JM said...

The b&w is my favourite, but they are both beautiful!
You made me feel very nostalgic with the word 'snorkling'... I haven't beein doing that for quite a while, here the water is too cold for me to stay there more than 5 minutes! I miss the tropics and the coral reef!... :-)

Maria said...

Hallo Jules, finally I found your regular blog! Today I started with your Vietnam blog and I am as fascinated as expected :)
Also a very beautiful SWF post!
Greetings, Maria

Suzanne said...

I like both these photos so glad you posted both. The b&w has a little more drama. Happy SWF

Photo Cache said...

You said it right, it is dramatic indeed.

Rose said...

Either one is perfect, but I think i would take the B&W in this case...I used to always keep B&W in one of my film cameras.

Ann said...

Think I prefer the drama of the b&w - very strong.

Larry D said...

Great photos! Hard to decide but I think I like the BW.

lucy said...

Love the black and white...so dramatic!

Louise said...

Black and White! I LOVE the color one, but seeing the black and white one seems more dramatic to me. Both are terrific.

Tommy V said...

I prefer the color shot. It's much more cheerful.

You do sport a lovely sky way out there. Nice photos too.

Here is a shot I took at Shiogama, Japan 54 years ago when color film first came out Thunder Maker

Hilda said...

I love the b&w — dramatic!

And that is an interesting cloud formation. Looks like a shallow bowl seen from the bottom.

Hyde DP said...

The b&w one is more dramatic for me.

babooshka said...

So vast. The monochrome is marvellous.

photowannabe said...

More drama in black and white but the color is so enticing. Makes me want to be right there on the beach.

Squirrel said...

I love the sky--sounds dumb, but I do look at it a lot, and take pics of it daily. if it's dramatic, I take way too many pix of it.

Katie said...

I'll take the B&W to put on my wall as art, and the color to use as my computer wallpaper so I can easily take a quick visit to paradise whenever I want. They're both great!

Jules said...

Hi All - am very busy but will make a visit to you all tomorrow!!! Off sight-seeing and hopefully will have some new photos for tomorrow!!!

Squirrel said...

Oh I forgot--- it was 85 degrees in the big apple and its general area-- all week was like that --hopefully it will get cool and rainy.

D.C. Confidential said...

I can't decide which one I like either. They're both so eye-catching.

Dina said...

Shalom from far away. I just caught up on several weeks of your photos and adventures and I love them all. What an interesting place and life you have.

Maria said...

Thank you for visiting and your nice comments! Yes, we keep in touch! Maria

Therese said...

Black and white for the atmosphere of course!

Old Wom Tigley said...

B & W for me Jules...:O)
I hope this finds you and all your loved ones well.... thanks for all your kind comments of late my friend..

Tom..

Barking Quill said...

I like the black and white. I think it might be because it is landscape. They are both nice though.

Catherine said...

Beautiful captures! The second one is full of gorgeous color, But I think the b/w is my fav!
Happy weekend!
Happy sky~watching!
