Skywatch (33)

My Skywatch comes from Pickering N Yorkshire UK.










The 1st pic is our last night with a super sunset.





Ive lassoed DW inversed



then lightened up the spot where DW stood, as I wanted to show the full colour of the sky and also show DW - this way I got full sky colour and DW.











This Crane caught my eye



To get what I wanted I had to crop slightly





Shooting straight into the sun, I captured a silhouette leaning on a lamp-post,



brings back the memory of the song by George Formby-







- I'm leaning on a lamp-post -



(for the full post of this - scroll down a few posts in my blog)




Between Pickering and Thirsk (nr Sutton Bank)



is Byland Abbey






The atmosphere was just right when we arrived there, it had been raining and was dull, with a patch of light grey sky shining through the windows - also the field was flooded - to create a reflection






To lean more -Google "Byland Abbey"








My last pic is from our last night sunset, with the cabin in.















Skywatch and My World goes hand in hand.

Great skies, Imac, and clever of you to lean on the lightpost!

Your photo of Byland Abbey is stunning!! I *need* to go to North Yorkshire!!! But, since I can't, I will enjoy your photos! Keep them coming.

Thanks for your visit to my SWF post. You were first! :)

Reader Wil said...

The colours of the sunset are amazing. You must have been very lucky to get a shot like that.

Wren said...

Nice selection - the abbey is beautiful, and your photo with the reflection does it full justice.

Pouty Lips said...

The picture you took of DW and the sunset is so precious. I think it was very clever to lighten it up so that you can see both! I have to say the photo of Byland Abbey is the best I've seen. It makes a perfect header.

Funny edit on the sunset

Byland abbey- you have the most intriguing places.

That log cabin looks so finnish. Strange to see one there.
