Skywatch (34)

Sadly this is my last Skywatch and My World posts for a while.With regret with summer coming I am finding it harder to juggle blogging and work + time with DW.

I have met a whole lot of friends here and I will miss you all.

However I hope from time to time pop in to visit you all, I will also continue with my blog = http://imac-photosfromthemindseye.blogspot.com/, and hope if you do have a few moments - pop in and say "Hi" you all will be most welcome.


now on with my last skies.


Sunset with Snow from our loft window.

Sunrise over Paignton harbour.


Sun - playing Hide and Seek.


Nearly time to SIGN off



Good night from Him "GOODNIGHT" with the MOON from my last post.

300mm lens 33% increased to 100% - taken with no tripod - hand held (truly amazed at the outcome lol)



Hope to see you all soon.


I would like to thank the Team= Klaus - Sandy - Ivar - Wren - Fishing Guy - Louise, - for their hard work in SKYWATCH.


I would like also to thank my friend Tom who hosted Skywatch before the Team.


Now - A huge Thanks to the Lady Which SKYWATCH was her baby and that Lady is DOT.

Your moon is amazing. Sorry to hear you will not be posting to Sky Watch and My World, I know how it can be I have been busy with my course lately and have found it difficult to visit blogs.

I will visit often, good luck and enjoy the summer when it gets here.

Aw Imac!
You were one of the first along with Tom to comment on my first Sky Watch posts when it wasn't nearly as big as it is now. You will be missed in this venue.
Take Care.
Awesome shots to close with!

DW is very lucky to have a loyal husband like you! I am happy to hear that you will be continuing with your blog, as long as it does not detract from time with DW.

I love the Sunrise over Paignton harbour. Your photography is amazing. You are an inspiration and I am proud to call you my friend.

Lew said...

I have enjoyed seeing your world through your camera lens and your words! I'll be checking in to see what you post in the future. I'm sure they will be great, if fewer. Thanks for sharing your world and for your comments on mine.

vincibene said...

Wonderful pictures! Sad to read that, I'll miss your posts. Be good!

Jim said...

wonderful shots as usual. It will be strange to not see your name on skywatch.

Anonymous said...

How nice of pouty lips to call you a LOYAL husband!!!

Old Wom Tigley said...

It is sad news Imac... but I certainly know first hand how things can get on top of you... everyone should be aware that blogging can swamp you at times.... take note and take action like Imac is doing and you will not loose your enjoyment of it.

What ever way you now go with your blogging I know many will call by and keep up with your work, your sense of fun, and down to earth friendliness.

I'm proud to have got to know you and call you a friend.

The Tile Lady said...

We will miss you but I surely understand...my Skywatch and My World posts have been few and far between these last few months, and I so much look forward to doing more, but that is slow in coming....These are gorgeous shots! That moon is amazing!

Susan said...

Wow what amazing colours, and such a moon!

I completely understand your decision to step back from blogging, but am sorry to hear it; I've always enjoyed your photographs. Good luck with everything, and I'll be glad to 'see' you again when you post!

Denise said...

You will be missed but understand your reasons. These photos are incredible and I will keep checking even though your posts won't be as frequent.

Craver Vii said...

There is a nice diversity in these photos.

It is a good thing for you to spend time with your dw. Be a blessing to each other. I'll miss you anytime you post with less frequency, but you have chosen a nobler path, and I respect that.

OOH what a hero!!!

Gail's Man said...

I agree that blogging can get a bit much sometimes. The struggle to find something decent to take, selecting the best picture and writing the posting. Then there is the task of visiting other blogs and leaving comments. Not quite a chore, but time consuming. Now the light nights are coming, I might not be on so much either. I'll certainly do my daily blog, but my Flickr stuff might have to take a backseat. Perhaps we might get to meet up again this year. Thanks for asking about Gail, she's not too well at the moment (nothing serious) and trips out might do her good. Take care buddy.

Tash said...

Fantastic parting shots! :)
the moon photo is amazing - hand held, wow.

Willard said...

A beautiful well done series, stunning photography as always.
