Sky Watch Friday - Florida Sunset

It's Sky Watch Friday and it's your chance to post your Sky pictures and go to Wiggers World to join. Why don't you get a photo of the sky and join in.

A trip to the beach is mandatory when you are visiting Florida. I took this on the Gulf of Mexico.
The sun was putting on a nice show.
We left before sunset and i got some nice cloud shots as we headed home.

This cloud was lit by the sun over the horizon and lighting up the sky.

Great captures. While the sunset is beautiful the skyhigh clouds are even better!
Cheers, Klaus

Does my friend enjoy "caipirinha"?
That's because seeing this I thought it could be a great place for us to have a chair, some glasses, and something real cool to drink!

I'm back ... oh no, cried blog world ... he's back!

Anemone said...

Lovely pictures from the sky, and the clouds. And Mexico seems like a very very nice country to visit. One day, maybe when I have found the gould in the end of the rainbow :-))

Nice weekend, and nice fishing, to you my friend.

The two last ones looked really "smoky" - Florida must be a nice place for sunset.

Old Wom Tigley said...

As the first here you have certainly set the standards high with these beauties..

It's been so long since I've been to Florida, I sure wish I could go back! Thank you kindly for the colorful sunsets - really nice shots

Abraham Lincoln said...

Well you made it to number one. Should be a lot of traffic your way. Your photos are nice.

I am now taking a ten day dose of steroids for my Rheumatoid Arthritis pain and it works. I am pain free. I believe the chemotherapy drug is spelled "Methotrexate" that is used to treat a lot of things from cancer to arthritis will be used next. I just relish in being pain free.

So I am not participating in Sky Watch Friday just because I might not be able to make it around to all.


I enjoyed seeing your blog post for Sky Watch Friday and I thought your photography was excellent.

I don't know if you like to read or not but if you do this place is amazing.

I just got my first shipment of used books from Strand's bookstore in New York City, yesterday. They have 18 miles of used books. Think about that. Anyway, they got here and I am totally happy with those I chose to read. I had to start out by just choosing a category, like photography, and go from there. I don't know how in the world they can keep track of so many books.

Look up Strand bookstore or copy and paste the URL here: http://www.strandbooks.com/app/www/p/home/

Those are really nice shots. Glad I stopped by!

nonizamboni said...

That great big sky in Florida! Wow.
Lovely photos--thanks for sharing.

Alan said...

Yes, we get some great sunsets on the gulf. I am jealous because I am on the Atlantic side and if I want good views of the sun on the horizon I have to drag myself out of bed waaaaaaaaay too early. :) Makes it all the better when we visit the gulf side and can just wait for sunset and not lose sleep, haha.

esnorway said...

werry nice shoots

mirage2g said...

The sunset is speaking to us as if God is looking down.

The clouds looks so cotton-y I could sleep there forever! Happy Weekend!
