Home nature & wildlife Sky


by greenrabbitdesigns

I’ve been encouraged to pay more attention to the sky this week by Annie from Knitsofacto.
Annie has just launched Project :: Sky 365. Anyone can join in and you don’t have to commit to daily photos, they can be weekly or even less often, just join in when you like. Check out this post for all the rules.

I have decided to join in when I see a sky I really want to capture but that may be more often than I first thought as I’m already now more aware of what’s going on above my head!

The first three photos were taken yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon when the sky was quite angry looking.

This photo was taken just after lunchtime today (Thursday) and as you can see we had a beautiful day today.

This one was taken late afternoon today as the sun was going down.

And this one was of tonight’s moon with it’s beautiful halo, you can just about see some stars too!

So thank you Annie for making me look up!

Check out the Project :: Sky 365 flickr group for some stunning photographs.

Thanks as always for your visits this week, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I believe it’s going to be a chilly one and don’t forget to look up! 🙂

Oh wow! That blue is so, well, BLUE! The sky really is ever changing isn’t it. And the more I look the more I see subtle differences in clouds that I’d not previously noticed. Thank you for joining in Vivienne, and for the mention and link … I think you’re the first to have been brave enough to tackle the night sky!

Beautiful photographs Vivienne! Annie is full of inspiration, isn’t she? I often marvel at the way small children observe the ground and notice every single detail. This sky observation project is an excellent manner of doing the very same thing but there is something, well, uplifting about looking upwards.

Yes indeed; we all need a little uplifting from time to time. Speaking of which your previous post is AmAzInG! Very soon I shall be veering towards colour celebration too.

Have a beautiful weekend, Vivienne.

ps I’m still wearing my wonderful bag. 😉

Hi Vivienne, I am back in blogland and so dropped in to say Hello! Your sky photos are very dramatic, the one with the bird reminds me of my skies from the garden, with the amazing Red Kites flying … sometimes in formation like the Red Arrows!
It is so nice to see you and your creations again :0)
Have a lovely weekend,
Val and Bella xx

Lovely skies photos, especially the blue one! The full moon one is beautiful too as is the one at sun down. I think the colder the weather the better the skies so we should be in for some good ones this weekend!!! x

I have visited Annie’s blog, and this is just so interesting project. Simply yet different, and I am thinking to join in, too. Your pictures are beautiful! Have a wonderful weekend, Vivienne, and stay warm and cozy!

what a lovely idea – I love sky watching and it’s fun to see what’s going on over other people’s heads in different parts of the world. Keep warm this weekend – looks like a frosty one so I’ll no doubt have the ceiling over my head and the sofa under my bottom for a fair bit of it!

What a great idea Vivienne. The sky changes SO quickly there is always something to see. I love your photos. I shall have to look up now! We are off to the seaside tomorrow so I think I will have my head in my scarf most of the time….brrr it’s turned really chilly.
Have a lovely weekend, keep snug.

Love all your different sky pictures…they show how much it changes over the day. This is a lovely idea of Annie’s, isn’t it? We sometimes have amazing pink sunsets here, over the estuary…..I wonder if I’ll be able to capture one?? I hope you have a lovely weekend, Vivienne!

Hi Vivienne, this is an interesting project and I’ve always had a fascination for cloud formations so I’ve just joined the Flickr group to see if I can snap any interesting skys. Wish I’d seen this yesterday as we had a fab red sunset.
Your moon picture is very impressive.
Have a great weekend, I’m digging my thermals out as the temperatures are plummeting again! x

Hi Vivienne 🙂

I love your sky pictures, and after I’ve written this, I’m popping over to have a look at sky 365 :o)

I most certainly agree with you in your previous post about dead animals in sweets even……yuk… Why on earth do they do it?
Loveyour yarns and knitting too :o)

Have a happy weekend Vivienne.
Take care and wrap up warm,
Donna xx

Beautiful images Vivienne, it’s amazing how the same little piece of sky can change in just a few hours……….I would love to take part in ‘sky 365’ but I have a strange affliction when I look up at the sky for any length of time, I become incredibly dizzy and have to sit down…………then again I suppose I could lay down to take the photo’s, may look a little strange to passers by though!

Love your sky scenes, Vivienne. It is a nice change from my snowy and white sky.

Here’s to everyone’s photos and remember to “look up.”

Happy Monday,

What a great project this is, because it’s so easy to go through the days, weeks and months without really stopping and paying attention to the little details around us. I always think it’s amazing how the weather and sky can vary so much from day to day – your pictures, especially the night sky one, are beautiful! x
