Whoopie -- it's  Sky Watch Friday !

O.k., this "wavy sunset" may be stretching the rules about what is and what is not a sky photo, but our sky has been so plain recently that I thought I had to throw in a bit of excietment with a splash...

There would not be that splendid light without the sky to give it. Great shot.

Denise said...

Fantastic! Just a beautiful capture of sea and sky. What more could one ask for, except to be there to see it for ourselves :) You have allowed us to do that in your wonderful photo.

Hi! I grew up in Marin and the sight of Mount Tam really does something to me... Thank you for stopping by my Skywatch! Please visit the Olympic Peninsula again - I have to say that it sure feels like home to me now!! -- Bonnie

PJ said...

This is a great SWF post and I love everything about it. I also love the post below of Lagunitas Creek. You know you're way around water

Louise said...

I love the splash. It is well-captured. And the sky behind it is pretty. I know what you mean by "plain" because I just finished a summer of spectacular skies, but I think it really isn't so plain. (But the water is a nice addition anyway.)

Gattina said...

how beautiful ! I wished I would be there and could smell the fresh air !

The Wavy Sunset is magnificent. Humankind cannot create such beauty, but we've been blessed with a way to capture and remember it through the camera. Wonderful photo, Donald.

I don't think it stretches the limit at all...it makes me feel like I am there almost.

photowannabe said...

Well, frankly...sky is sky and you caught the rosy reflections of the sky in both the droplets and the setting sun. I like it and don't think you broke the rules at all. And if you did...big deal!! i like it anyway.

Rocks said...

Thanks for visiting my skywatch photo today and giving it ten points :) appreciate it!

You also got a nice picture there, the water splash provided some moving elements..and love that light orange color of sunset you captured.

Tootie said...

That's an amazing photo. Enlarged, it made me feel like I could be washed away by the wave.

Debbie said...

Wow! When I enlarged it I think I got wet :)

Great photo.

Baruch said...

Well done - I love it and the title is great too.

Melissa's Cozy Tea Time Readings said...

Amazing, I can almost hear the sound of the water. Thanks for the comment.

John said...

Amazing shot!

Craver Vii said...

Marvelous contrasts! Near and far, light and shadow, peaceful sunset versus splashing waves... all very good stuff!

Antonette said...

Oh wow that is just a gorgeous shot!

To answer your question about my swf, yes the birds were all gathering in the trees.

Take care and happy swf!

Faye Pekas said...

Beautiful sky but even more gorgeous sea.

ChrissyM said...

Beautiful sky the colors are gorgeous but that splash is awesome. This looks like a painting.

Tomate Farcie said...

As far as I'm concerned you can stretch the "rules" as much as you want.

Look at all the movement in these shots.. It's been so hot anyway, just looking at the water splash on my monitor feels good!

Tomate Farcie said...

I will be away from the computer tomorrow but I don't want to leave without commenting on that photograph of my beloved bridge above... Wooooooooooooowow! Yeah, I know, but I had to say it :)

Thank you for keeping up with the daily shots of greatness.

Larry D said...

It definitely qualifies, great photo.

Ces said...

Donald your photographs are outstanding! Wow. It looks like you had a lot of fun capturing these beautiful vistas. I love the water. I scrolled through your blog. I must come and visit not just on Fridays.

Lew said...

The waves only add to the beauty of the sunset! And your golden gae photo with the blue sky is also a Sky Watch marvel!

I like all of your "water" related shots. Fine action and surf in your Skywatch shot. Very nice work.

Speedy - El Coyote said...
