Sky Watch Friday 1/16/09

 


Hi Skywatchers! I am b-a-c-k and on a roll! I took this shot as we were driving home from Indiana after Christmas. The sky looked like it was on fire. I know it is a bit blurry as I snapped it will riding not driving! LOL I liked the effect I got in spite of the blur. My friend Cheryl told me it looked like a charcoal drawing which I thought was neat since I am an artist and especially since I cannot do charcoals well. I find them very, very frustrating. I did take some more sky photos this week so I am prepared for next Friday.

It was c-o-l-d here today. The wind chill was 11. Us southerners are not used to these temps. It made me so very thankful for my warm home and the warmth where I work.

Our son Rhett won a spelling bee at school this week and I was able to surprise him by attending it. He will compete at another school the end of this month with 3rd through 8th graders. If he should win, he will go on to Birmingham. We are so very proud of him.

My Uncle Frank has had his 4th brain surgery to remove more fluid. He is in a semi-coma, but was waving his arms on Wednesday so we are taking that as a positive sign and trying to remain optomistic. My best friend Genie's father is in hospice with pnemonia, but seems to be on the road to recovery due to all the vistors he has had and we are indeed thankful for that blessing.

I'm with Louise, Beck.This is a great shot. It captures an interesting mood!

Becky, that is an amazing shot - it looks like a painting by a French Impressionist.

You should frame that and hang i on a wall. Seriously.

It's so different - that's why it's brilliant.

The colors make my eyes travel to the right -- great shot!

IS that you in the mirror in the bottom of the photo?

Sandy, thanks for calling me "Beck" as well as the compliment on my shot. I never thought it creating a mood. I was just thrilled to take it. WOW! My day has been made by you, David. Coming from you, I KNOW I did well now. Thank you so much for your comments. They really meant a lot to me. I shall have a copy made today, frame it and hang it soon. It reminded me of something I saw in the art show I entered but it was of a different subject of course. Still it had the same movement. It was long and narrow sort of like this one could easily be. I have always tried to be different and take photos of different things. This certainly paid off for me. Yes, Walker, I thought it was a cool effect also. Thanks, Paulie. Yes, that is a mirror in the bottom of the shot. Thank you all for stopping by and making such wonderful comments
