These ethereal hues were gracing the November sky for a few fragile minutes, fortuitously I happened to steal a glance out the window at the same time. I had time to get my camera out, open the door and take two photographs before the pink and blues started fading to grey.


  1. Sugared Almonds.

    A suprisingly gentle and delightful little rectangle to contemplate.


  2. Peacefulness personified! Thank you!

  3. What a wonderfully delicate sky.

    Yup, I took those pictures this morning from my patio with my zoom lens!

  4. I love moments like this. My fiance often asks me if I'm okay while we're in the car and I'm just staring out the window, and I say of course - I'm just enjoying the sky :)

    I just need a camera that can capture it :)

  5. What a lovely, peaceful, pastel sky! Lovely shot, J!

    Enjoy your weekend!


  6. Lovely pastel shades in the sky! Quick thinking on your part in grabbing your camera in the nick of time.

    I won't be commenting for most of December due to being in a secret location with no internet access. The secret will be revealed later.

    So...Have a merry Christmas with your family!

  7. After a hectic day I feel calmer just looking at that photo.

    Pat - how exciting. I hope you have a great time.

  8. Dreaming....perfect photograph for that word.

  9. So soft, so gentle. Like the dreamland photo.

    Have a good weekend.

    Alex's World! -

  10. These are little girls' fav colours, that what my girl students tell me.

    How long are you in China for? I have three nieces & nephews who went to China to teach English.

    My ancestor home, Kwang Neng is a small village in Kwang Chow, sued to be 4 hours by bus to Kwang Chow city.

    NEw Zealand is very small, and there are not many publishers. I told my girls, perhaps next time, they will publish the book. The novel is posted in my blog, Mail Order bride. It was written very quicky for fun. I also have a work in progress, a family journal, awaiting my daughter to edit.

  11. Beautiful sky. You caught it at just the right moment.
