Skywatch Friday


Clouds are rare in Acapulco, Mexico - and normally unwanted while you are there. Though, without the clouds this particular evening, we would not have had such a spectacular sunset. This was taken in February 2008 overlooking Acapulco Bay.

What's happening in other big skies?

Looks good to me. Nothing like that around here in this part of Ohio. I guess it might get this pretty in Acapulco.

Amber is my favourite colour for skies. Thanks for stopping by Photonic Harmony and congrats on a great SWF shot! All the best Toni, Andy.

That is just lovely - I would love to pay on a beach and look at that!

Cool catch for SWF! In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then beleive them to be true. Mine's up too hope you can drop by... Happy SWF!

Nice shot! I love the range of colors...for anyone that hasn't enlarged this, you are missing out on a fabulous photo.

BTW, I am a Hoosier, too, I live in Vermillion County.

I got so interested when you said "normally unwanted." But I so agree, if not for the clouds, this shot won't be as dramatic and as beautiful as this is.

My SWF pictures are posted in these blogs:
Jenn Was Here and Shutter Happy Moments. Hope you can hop by if you have the time. Happy weekends to you!
