For more Sky Watch fun go to Tom at Wigger's World It is a lot of fun and there are always some fabulous photos. Even though it has only been very little time since I did my second post of yellow, I am anxious to let the fun begin with sky watch, so I am going ahead and posting. And if you want scroll on down and check out my shots for the Anna's Yellow Project.

ETA: I should have said earlier to click on this photo to enlarge it--it does make a difference.
I took the above photo the other night...my camera was on a tripod and the shutter was open for 25 seconds. and I used my software to get this out of the picture I took.

The pictures below are scanned photos...taken in 1976. I have been a sky watcher for a LONG time. The bottom two especially remind me of that old saying that behind every cloud is a silver lining. Also makes me think of a poem that I can in no way tell you who it is by nor any of the lines other than there is one that says something about behind the clouds is the sun still shining. Okay, I just did a google and came up with this:

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall

-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
The Rainy Day, 1841

Oh I love the poem, and it is perfect for this! (I'm thinking now of googling for sky poems for SWF!). It is sad but uplifting, too, especially with these beautiful photos illustrating it.

Hey Rose,
Great job - I love the moon shot. I know they are hard to get so congratulations!
I watch the sky everyday - white puffy clouds just make you feel good!

Gattina said...

I love the moon picture ! I had to look up where you are living because the half moon is not standing up like here in Europe. It's laying down like I saw in Egypt.

I like your photoes. The one with the trees, and an enormes cloud on top of them, remindes me of cotten!Have a nice weekend:)

Andrea said...

As I was looking at your sky pictures I thought these pictures look kind of like my pictures so I had to go back to your profile and see where you live. LOL I live in Georgia but my trees look like your trees and my sky looks like you sky. Isn't it funny.....I guess I think somewhere else would look different. Good shots.
