Sky above Mygardenhaven

Sunrise from my bedroom window.

I love the silhouette of the coconut trees. This typically tropical look is fast disappearing and being replaced with steel and concrete buildings. I tell myself to enjoy the view each day before all the trees are no longer there. Taking photographs like these is one way of treasuring them, and documenting the scene in an image for posterity.

Moonlit night from my study window.

I was entranced by the visibility of sweeping cloud formations even in this light, and clicked away without noticing that I had captured with my camera the source of this light, the benevolent moon high up above the trees, lending me her soft light in lieu of my camera flash light.

I would like to thank Skywatch Friday for making me more aware of the beauty in the skies above me than I had ever been.

  3. Beautiful mountain view. I also love seeing palm trees against the backlit sky. I also love the shot of the dog!

  4. Lovely shots,most of the urban natural views are fast disappearing
    and it's good to treasure it for old times.

  5. @ graceolsson, thomas and Debbie Smith - Thank you for your lovely comments.

    @ Staceemaree - The dog's cute, I agree.

    @ chubskulit - Your sky shot is missing. I've tried many times but couldn't link to it.

  6. @ Carver - Sometimes we miss nights like this when we forget to look up at the sky!

  7. Lovely shots. I also love seeing palm trees - to somebody who grew up in cool climates and now lives in Colorado, they speak to me of the tropics and warm weather year-round.
