Skywatch Friday- remarkable!

For more SkyWatch photos from all over the world, click here.

These photos were taken in the last week or two and (forgive me!) I think they're great. Last week I took my son to the bus and we crossed the road and started up the hill and voila! out of the fog we came! So I grabbed my camera and started shooting as the sun came up and the sky turned from pink to gold to blue. The fog lays like a blanket and the beautiful hills of Don Pedro poke up through it.

Then a few days ago we had a horrible storm here. It poured buckets all night long (my poor horses!) and at 5 AM I was rudely awakened by a huge clap of thunder right over my head! The dog couldn't take it and jumped in bed with me then vibrated with fear so badly I was afraid she'd have a heart attack. The next day the sun came out and we enjoyed scattered showers and long moments of blue skys. This is the sunset from that day. I thought the colors were brilliant! (click on the phot to enlarge it to see the different colors of the sunset.)

Now for the bad news. I can't keep this blog up. As those of you who "follow" me and I follow you, you know I post only occasionally now. I tried to keep it up but it's just not possible. Too much homework, work-work, kid-work, etc. I'll check in on all of you this year but I have to give up regular posts on my blog.
This is not goodbye, just farewell for now!

Both of these are exceptional captures. You really were in the right places at the right time! Glad you had your camera with you.

I'll miss checking in on your blog, but I understand how life can get very busy and we need to prioritize. Let us know when you're back! Have fun...

Great photos! I love the fog blanketing the low country in the first one - looks a little like snow, but very different at the same time.

Thanks for letting us know what is going on! I hate it when someone simply disappears from the blogosphere, no explanation!

All the best, and hope to see you occassionally!!

Ah no, Caprice, here I'm only meeting you via my blog. You just go and relax and when you're ready you come back to blogger. God be with you, my new friend. Blessings Jo (North Africa)
