Catch Me If You Can


After a cloudy day the sky opened but not fast enough to let the Sun come out.

Even if I could run like the wind I think I would rather sit on a balcony with some friends and just stay there watching this piece of heaven.

A true masterpiece.

Daniel J Santos said...

Amazing color, a beautiful sky watch photo.

Andrea said...

May I join Quint in gazing at this beauty. Wonderful color you have captured.

Old Wom Tigley said...

I agree with Quintarantino.. when enlarged I could make out the trail of a plane flying off over the horizon.

Great scene.

SandyCarlson said...

The dance between sun and clouds is a lively one. The sun has surrendered gracefully here! Beautiful.

ellen b said...

Oh that is fantastic. I'm glad you were fast enough to catch it!!

RuneE said...

Magnificent colours, but that plane coming in from the right and the discreet bushes(+) in the foreground really made the picture.

Julie at Virtual Voyage said...

striking shot! I really like the shape of the bushes against the cloud.

Carole said...

Beautiful. It looks like a tear in the sky.

Donna said...

You missed it by "that" much!! It's Still a Beautiful shot!!!

Ted Roth said...

What a wonderful contrast of moods, all calm above, a the silent plane off in the distance and heading to unknown destinations, but then suggestions of something rather different in waiting below. Also lovely just taken as abstract.

Anne-Berit said...

That`s a wonderful picture:o)

Lilli & Nevada said...

Another fantastic sky watch from you this is splendid

Alan said...

Beautiful golden hues. Almost the opposite of my Skywatch this week where the clouds only left a thin sliver of sunset on the horizon and blocked out the rest.

Ik kan het niet anders, dan met iedereen eens zijn. Een zeer fraaie foto. Het onderste gedeelte lijkt wel onder water.

A sky of gold - beautiful

Paulie said...

A silver lining sunset!!!!!!! It was so eye catching, I almost missed the silhouette below! Looks like a piece of art with torn edges paper to separate the two.

Small City Scenes said...

I call that color 'creme brulee'. Yummy! And the the glow line---superb. MB

Dick,
Je vraag "of ik zeker weet dat het een vogelnest is"( foto Skywatch Friday) kan ik niet met 100% zekerheid be-amen, dus wat denk jij dat het is? Ik heb de foto met een enorme telelens gemaakt.

Een ehhh de foto's vergroten gaat nu prima, vraagje, bestaat er een nog groter formaat dan 640? Hoe kom je trouwens aan het getal 640? Ben zeer benieuwd.

Thanks for visiting my skywach Friday, and enjoy your weekend too!
Greetings from JoAnn Holland

Anil P said...

The sunlight curdles the horizon very nicely.

oldmanlincoln said...

Thanks for your visit. To answer your question about the picture of four grumpy starlings, "No," the only thing I did in Photoshop was crop the picture and sharpen it a little.

Amrita said...

Travis said...
