Sky Watch #22

Sky Watch is weekly meme that showcases skies, skyscape, clouds and cloudscapes all over the world. Click here to see this week's sky posts from the four corners of the world.

Been doing a little tidying up the pictures folders when I serendipitously bump into this shot. I thought this is the perfect entry for me this week.

I was a tad sad yesterday for reasons I wasn't aware of until hours after posting yesterday's image. Today is my father's death anniversary so I guess feeling melancholic is but normal. However, bloghopping over to Tiff's blog did give me that boost that I get only from a strong caffeinated joe. Imagine my glee to see Tracy elegantly trying to wolf down a pork sandwich the size of a piglet :) Thanks.

  1. I would imagine that melancholy is quite normal. Bless you in your grief. Beautiful capture... almost as if your father is looking down upon you. :O)

  7. I´ve just came back home from a short walk. The winter is howling outside, the temperature is so low that even my teeth were freezing when I smiled for a while.
    And now, sitting with the hot tea, I saw your photo. And it brought me back to summer, holidays and I felt sunshine on my face for a while. Thank you.

  22. This is a fabulous image, Maria! What camera do you use again? :D

    Aahh. You know what we'd say to that - syempre pag may nawala sayo na mahal mo, expected na ang isip at katawan ay maaalala ang okasyon. Hope you're feeling better now. Think happy :D Your father would rather you did that.

    Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments.

  24. This is a magnificent photograph, one worthy of a frame. Blogging is certainly good medicine for us when we are down in the dumps. I've been feeling a bit that way myself lately, and so I escape into my blogging world where all my friends show such grand photographs that can't help but make me smile. My own parents are looking down on me, as I know your father is. And I know it doesn't help much but I do understand. Sending a hug from here in Northern Virginia :)

  54. Contrary to popular belief, I do not believe that time is a healer, and grief is something deep and heartfelt, as I know only too well.

    On a lighter note, a gorgeous photograph of tranquility and peace
