Skywatch Friday



Since living here we have seen some remarkable sunsets and I have to restrain myself from reaching for the camera most fine evenings. Last week they were particularly spectacular when they were enhanced by the cloud of volcanic ash and I have already posted a couple of shots taken during that time.

However, the shot below is one taken before the Icelandic volcano erupted and we feel very fortunate to witness such beauty on a regular basis.



Thanks to Klaus, Sandy Wren, Fishing Guy and Sylvia who host Skywatch Friday. For more pictures of skies around the world, please click here.

This one looks very clear...... the ash makes things look mystical and hazy.
