Sky Watch - & Some Waves

For this weeks Sky Watch I had intended to capture the wonderful coastal resort of Redcar on the North East coast of England (I work there) and perhaps some wonderful waves crashing on the golden sands with the sky as a backdrop, it was going to be a stunner!!

Sadly, I forgot my camera so you'll have to make do with these waves instead - at least the sky is real!




For more sky watchers visit Tom at Wiggers World.

Once upon a time there was this great and fantastic group of people who blogged and photographed … with a click, click here, a snap, snap there, all of them had a week to look upon the sky … day and night, by dusk or dawn, sunrise or sunset … and always there where great and fantastic photos to be seen when SKY WATCH was opened …

I am one of those proud sky watchers and I really enjoy each and every one of the photos you show us. I really think you are a first class sky watcher!

Gimme five! (Or is it ten -- you seem to have more fingers than people in general ;)
Thanks for the waves, they seem pretty friendly. And the weather seems fine (in England?!!?)

Hallo from North Norway. Last week I saw all Sky Watch Friday photos and they were all great, and I hope to see them all this week too. I love to travel around the world this way.

Thanks for sharing your :-) sky watch photos and have a great weekend!

Thanks for your visit to my SkyWatch Friday post, Gary.

I'm on the road and in the field doing another photo trip chasing the bloom of our Rosebay Rhododendron (white blossoms) in the northern area of the Southern Appalachian mountains, and with lodging that does not have the most reliable internet service. I won't be home again for a few more days yet, but I did finally develop and upload a few images to update my July 7 Rhododendron post.

Sunrise this morning was a washout, literally, with locally heavy thunderstorms--looks like the rain won't ease up until later morning so I'm going to breakfast soon. But I wanted to try and get around to all who visited my SWF, and others too while I still have good internet access. So, please forgive this cut & paste with a small bit of personalization added--I do appreciate your visit and your comments.

I do hope your feeling better today. Yeah, it really is pretty tough keeping a good mental attitude when you're feeling so miserable--it's a challenge!

I don't mind the waves and the sky is pretty. I know how you feel about not having your camera with you: I did a 2 week trip a couple of years ago and left my four 2GB memory cards at home! Luckily I was able to get online, buy some more and get them shipped overnight to my motel.

Visiting from Tom's site. Those pictures are enough to make me dizzy. My son's wife has crohn's disease. She's had ever since she was a child. There's alot of things she can't eat because it won't digest. She is sick alot. Hope yours is under control.

Come see my gators.
