Andy said...

I'm not the religious kind, but for want of a better way of expressing it? It looks like you took that first shot whilst you were sitting in the chair of the almighty. Fantastic! Great SWF! Thanks for stopping by Photonic Harmony, all the best, Andy.

I'm completely blown away by these photos. Awwwww-sum!!! The first one takes the cake. Part of it looks like a shadow mirror image and the bottom part almost looks like a water reflection.

Sorry to hear you're sick but glad you're feeling better. :-)

Love that first photo with all the dramatic clouds.

Celeste said...

Imac,
Say hello to St Ives for me, I lived there for several years! Be sure to walk out to the chapel on 'the island' and gaze out to sea. It is a lovely spot and you can taste the salt in the air.

Celeste said...

Thanks for the offer of a single malt - I am a huge fan of Laphroig. Unfortunately I won't be in Cornwall until December.

Anemone said...

Help!! Arne is nude in my hall!!!painting!!!

Gail's Man said...

Glad you're feeling better Mac. Didn't know it had been going on this long. What had you eaten, to be this poorly?

Enjoy your holiday. Think it has been the longest gap you've had between holidays. At least it'll give me chance to catch you up on Paintbox!

Great sky photos by the way.
