for Sky Watch Friday

Click photos to enlarge.
A couple photos from slides developed in August of 1994. I am not saying that they are pretty, but rather kind of strange. I did not alter anything cause I do sort of like how they look. I don't remember how the colors actually were so thought I might as well leave them as they scanned. And I think the water part is pretty well accurate, so who knows about the actual sky.

Sky Watch Friday is an actual blog that Tom and friends started just for our benefit. I am not sure who all was involved in developing it but I am thankful to them. So if you want to join, or just want to see some great pictures go to Sky Watch to find lots of links. You won't be sorry.

Hi Rose,
it is certainly a strange picture but beautiful in its own way.

Thanks for the comment on my blog.

Luiz Ramos said...

Beautiful shot. It looks like painting, didn´t it?

Cath said...

Those blues are wonderful and deep. I love how the clouds have formed almost in a ladder across the sky, or a platform, and their reflection in the water is awesome.

Great shots. Thanks for visiting mine.

SandyCarlson said...

The clouds seem to be alive--spirits in the sky!

Anonymous said...

They both have very good atmosphere! The bottom is my favourite due to drawing the viewer inwards. WHHHAAAA a little scary ;)

Kahshe Cottager said...

These are lovely .. the second is my favourite because I am partial to reflections! Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi! I am glad you didn't alter the pictures. They are perfect just the way they are. The reflection in the water is stunning. Lisa

Babooshka said...

Absolutely right not to change a thing. The deep blue is remarkable. They are very ethereal, and simply beautiful.

Country Girl said...

Rose, I'm so glad I dropped by here. You have beautiful photography that you're sharing. And you write to similar to me; it's easy to read, too.

Normally, I don't like music on people's sites, but this is Neil Young, so it's all good.

Sandpiper (Lin) said...

The second was is very cool. Looks like a face in the clouds. Also, like the reflection in the water.

Love the one reflecting in the water.

The color is effective in portraying the mood of very early morning or late evening. Very well done!

Tricia said...

Very dramatic - ominous looking - I love the blue & the reflection - I really like them!!! They're definitely "WOW" worthy!!!

Maria said...

Thank you Rose, I would also like to be in your photos! :)

Laurie Brandriet Keller said...

Hi Rose, Thanks for checking out my blog. Email me at laurie2k2@aol.com and I will email the photo back to you. Some of my pics enlarge, and others do not. Is there something I can do to ensure they all enlarge ??? Thanks, Laurie

Maria said...

Dear Rose, I just noticed your very kind comment on my swf post with the lots of rain...
Thank you!
We had a wonderful hiking trip on Wednesday and Thursday, the first day sunshine, the second day heavy rain, and we got wet to the bones...
But it was extremely beautiful! This is a region in Austria called Pre-Alps, farms with cattle and from time to time a village. Very green and very pleasant for hiking as it is not too steep. And always lovely outlooks.

I think it is very difficult to scan slides which are ten years old or more...
They sometimes remind of emotions one may have forgotton. Or whatever.
But the dark clouds over the still darker water look very exciting!
Have a nice weekend, Maria

Donna said...
