Sky Watch Friday

Sky Watch Friday by Tom Wigley. To find out who's participating go to see Tom.




Upside down Fosters lager -

The AmberNectar - for our Australian Bloggers.
My Photos for Sky Watch this Friday, I have used 2 cameras and 2 glasses of lager to get the reflections of the sunset through the lager also through the lens of my camera on the table, using DW's snap camera.....Hows that for sunset reflections then..

All this was discovered by mistake, we went for a drink one warm evening last week with cameras hoping to get the sunset, while drinking - my camera was on the table - I noticed the sun reflectin from my camera lens ---so --- I tilted my camera a little to get the whole pic of beer -table - lamp - sky and setting sun, then with DW's camera photographed the whole scene.

Ye canny git better sunset reflections -fer SKY WATCH -without a pint - wot say u all.lol.

I'm definitely going to try that one, though I doubt the sun will reflect well through a pint of Guinness.

What a fun idea. Thanks for visiting my site, Imac. I looked at some of your blog just now and it's really wonderful. I have to have some breakfast right now but I will come back and look at more of them. I love the bluebells.

For The People said...

Last but not least I hope. Great shots. Great idea.

Halcyon said...

I love reflection photos and this one is extra creative!

Judi-gmj said...

Now that is letting the "creative juices" flow! Great job and good eye to spot it.

Jules said...

One of the many benefits of having a drink.

Chuck Pefley said...

Very clever and creative indeed. Good thing you noticed the reflection before you'd drained your glass, otherwise it would have meant a second pint to do the photo. And of course you'd be required to drink that one as well :)
