Skywatch Friday- Terracotta Sun





































The photo of the sun is straight from the camera- no filters or touch ups.
The orange color was incredible!


                         Terracotta sun
                               Lights sky with fiery beauty
                                     Proof that God exists

A little scary in a way.
Actually, very scary :-)
What an amazing thing to capture.
Your blog is very varied. Lovely flowers, birds, all sorts.

Oh, Mickie, these are spectacular! The third one is my favorite. I posted some Kansas clouds today, that I took last fall.

Have a great weekend,

I love the peachy pink color of the sun, the beautiful haiku, the silhouetted trees and the blurring of the grasses in the foreground of the last photo. Thank you for sharing he gorgeous pictures!

My goodness, how I long to be able to take a shot like that! Incredible! Dazzling!

RED SKY IN MORNING

Red sky in morning,
Sailors take warning!


Who knows what might happen out on the sea?
Waves riding high,
Waves to the sky,
Waves crashing and dashing all over me!

Red sky at night,
Sailors delight!


Leeward or windward we sail with no fear;
Water is calm,
Healing like balm—
Ahoy, fellow sailors, landfall is near!

Great skies - that is a fantastic sun. We had some wild sun colors this week because of the all the wildfires in the region, that's my SWF post for the week.

That first image is STUNNING.

Carola said...

Wonderful sun photos.

Stewart M said...

Hi there - splendid sun - I like the first one, but as always I think I like the images where the sun is framed by the trees more. Don’t really know why, but I think something else happening in a picture lifts the whole image.

Cheers - Stewart M.

That is an awe-inspiring capture of the sun. I heard there were eruptions on the sun recently and maybe that has caused the more orange appearance.
