Sky Watch Friday




Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. --Helen Keller

great sunset photo

Deborah Godin said...

Wow - the first thing I thought of when I saw that was Symphony Fantastique. Wish they hadn't used it in that Julia Roberts movie; ditto Ravel's Bolero in "10"
I can't listen to them the same way anymore...sometimes pop culture destroys the good stuff. But I'm getting off-track. This is a wonderful photo, both the ominous and uplifing caught together.

Building Character is like a Sculptor Chisseling

Mary said...

Wow!!! Is that just storm clouds, or is something on fire?

AphotoAday said...

Nice and moody -- just the way I like it...

Deborah Godin said...

Another synchronicity - you had one about geometry and my blog, now I just discovered my email Word-of-the-Day is "idee-fixe" which it said is a word coined by Hector Berlioz to describe the principle theme of his Symphonie Fantastique, which I mentioned earlier here. Cue the Twilight Zone theme!

Maria said...

This is a very beautiful sky watch picture! I love it!

Angie said...

Hello again Bob,
Marshes are fascinating places aren't they? What fascinates me particularly about the marshes I show on my photos is that it was once part of the river Dee.Part of the river began silting up round about the 17th century and has gradually formed the marshes.Every time I walk either on or near the marshes, it always amazes me to think that the river once flowed through here! Parkgate,which I don't suppose you have ever heard of, was a busy port when Liverpool was just a small fishing village! I hope I haven't bored you with all this,lol

Very dramatic and ominous.

Coffee Messiah said...

Great shot and quote.

Merisi said...

This pretty much illustrates what "under a cloud" can mean under the worst of circumstances.

Out of so many choices of great sky watch images, I selected your entry because I wanted to find out what Bob Dylan was blogging about. *g*
Love your blog's name! :-)

A stunning and surprising lightshow. How clever of you to have baggedit!

Louise said...

Wonderful sky. I love how the dark and light are together. Nice quote to go with it.

imac said...

I love this photo, its the colours and their contrast that catches my eye.

chrome3d said...

Excellent quote. The colours in the pic are so fine. Orange and blue and no gradient in between.

WAT said...

Yeah, I hear ya Helen, but it still sucks to suffer.

I'm working on doing something outrageous to inspire ya Robert Z.

Incredible capture! The clouds look so heavy and menacing. Nice work.
