SkyWatch Friday: clouds over the sky



All of a sudden, the sun disappeared, even if only for a temporary minute. Two stubborn grey clouds refused to budge, forming a shape reminiscent of the yin-yan symbol. The sky was dark enough to allow me to take a photo without the whitewash effect of a strong sun.

A turbulent sky is rare in Hania over Kalamaki Beach - I think this is the closest I'm going to get to one.

  1. It is well known that we Portuguese once sailed the seven seas searching for new lands, wealth and adventures.
    We were brave in those days and gave the world new worlds!

    Luckily I don’t have to sail the big oceans on a small ship to sea the wonders of our world …
    No Sir, I just need to check with Mr. Tom, the finest host there is, for a trip around the world with SKY WATCH TOURS and with a click here, a click there I am quickly in the USA, England, Brazil, Italy, China, Australia, Finland … well, everywhere.

    And on each stop I come to see a little marvel of our world under a great sky!
    Hope you can come and see my piece of the sky at lenses & visions

  2. Very nice shot; you caught the sun at just the right time to allow the photograph, and to show off some of its rays shining from behind the cloud.

  5. Clouds over the sky symbolically like our every day life. Ups and downs, joy and sadness...

  6. Nice. You really made the most of it.
    I think absence makes the heart grow fonder. We here have almost no clouds for the half year dry season.
