Skywatch errr Thursday... or "Can't this woman ever get it right?"

I could literally fill my whole google upload allocation on sunrises and sunsets I have seen this week, it has been so beautiful, and so difficult to choose. Anyway eventually I settled on two, this one, of the sun rising through the little gap between the Church Manse and the Bed and Breakfast in St Phillips Street......


......and this one that I took this morning. Max spotted the body surfer in the clouds, whooshing down from the top right towards the church.



And as a tailpiece.... hehe..... I REST MY CASE!

2 posts ago I wrote about the perversity of cats for insisting on drinking from the oddest places in favour of their lovingly filled kitty bowls. I had no sooner hit the publish button, when I spotted Fergussen on our front steps....

I still want to tell you all about the trip to the spa, but it is SOOOOO tiring being pampered, so I will do it tomorrow, hehe! Cheers.

(To see more of Skywatch, go and visit our charming and dedicated host Tom.)

Great shot for Sky Watch! We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made or only just happened... mine's up too hope you can drop by. Happy SWF!

It must be really nice living by the ocean... one of my favorite places to visit.

Marvelous Sky Watch photos!

And, yes, cats will drink from the strangest places. My three will abandon the fresh water in their bowls to lap up leftover drops from the bottom of the tub after my shower! Nutty cats!

Post away, any day with these beauties. Absolutely stunning. I have aid this before and I will say it again. Photoshop cannot match mother nature, so you won't get a gorgeous African sunset unless you are there. Perfect example right here. As for kitty, what a peverse little thing to do. I thnk it was just for he camera.Wanted to be a blog star.

I guess I'm the only one who sees the angel flying in the second photo.
Fantastic sky shots! Miss you on Picture This

Rose said...

The second one is my pick, but both are too beautiful for words.

Had to laugh when I seen the cat picture, though.

Sheila said...

I have seen the church in many different photos that you posted, but this is one of my favourites.
It has an interesting silhouette..
Still on a break, but wanted to stop by and say hi..!

Lilli & Nevada said...

WOW! WOW WOW! and well what else can one say about such a beautiful sky watch

Sharon said...

Both of those sky pictures are amazing! The colors in the first one are breathtaking!

Cats are something! They go out of their way not to cooperate!

Alan said...

Both lovely shots, though I prefer the atmosphere of the second, I think. The one in the previous post is perhaps the most stunning of them all.

You must live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. I love your pictures. I couldn't believe I actually saw the surfer. Cats, I love them but they are odd. By the way it is 3:06 p.m. central standard time on Friday afternoon where I am. Love your site. I'm going to come back because I really want to hear about the spa trip. I'm all about being pampered.

Tammy said...

I love the sunset photo. My daughter loves the kitty!

Nita said...
