sky watch friday


we're taking a break from friday neon to try out sky watch friday. i love the concept of a day to honor the sky. in fact a blog called the sky is big in pasadena should have participated in this a long time ago! my own theme day prevented me from joining so i'm going to try it out this week and see how it goes.

the other problem is that i don't have any unused pictures of pasadena neon currently on my computer. and i've heard from a few of my readers that they wish more of my neon would be taken at night... a good critique. so neon will be on hiatus for a little while until i decide if i want it to resume - or if people complain loud enough. maybe shifting it to another day?

all that to say that this shot was taken of the setting sun the other night. you may not believe me but this is actually looking west from the los robles overpass over the 210. enjoy!

I'm trying to imagine what your neon meme was all about. How could it be more lovely than this sky? ;-)

eg tour guide is right. This is such a lovely sunset! And that little silhouette compliments it perfectly. Do come back to Sky Watch next week and show us more.

Ben: A colorful sky you have captured here.

What I like about skywatch is it's just the great leveller. One thing at whatever level we can photograph. Those pasrles against the silhouette are just beautiful.

ben wideman said...

Agreed. Pretty much anyone can point a camera and capture something spectacular in the sky.

I'm interested in your neon meme. Is there a link to many glowing photos? But more importantly, welcome to Skywatch Friday! This is a great group of photographers around the world. Many beautiful shots, and your entry is a perfect addition.

Did you see the fighter jets in the sky this afternoon? I wonder what that was all about. Well, we're still here, so it was probably just practice time.

Really? In Pasadena??? That's pretty crazy.
