Sky Watch #62


IMG_0549, originally uploaded by M'roy.

With all the destruction/calamity happening lately, i.e. worst flooding the Philippines has seen in 40 years, the earthquakes in American Samoa and Indonesia, sky watching takes on a more spiritual turn. While we skywatch, let us say a prayer or two for our brothers and sisters who are in pain, grieving, devastated, and lost.

SKYWATCHING is a weekly gathering of sky watchers and sky lovers. Please join us.

  1. First of all, thank you for your thoughts. My family and I are fine. The earthquake shook the neighboring island of Sumatra. There are many victims, and we are already organizing relief efforts.

    Your photo today is just magnificent! I'd love to be in this place.

  7. Wonderful shot, and I find that I am always able to connect through my sky-gazing with our loving God. It's the way He and I usually talk. I have been faithful in prayer for all those impacted. What a nightmare...

  12. Breathtaking shot! And, yes, a very spiritual feel to it! In light of the frightful things that have been happening in the Philippines, Samoa and Indonesia, I think we should all remember to say a prayer for the people there and Sky Watch is a good way to recognize that we are all one world!

    Thanks for the beauty and the reminder.

  15. That is a familiar scene, great shot.
    Yes, our hearts go out to all who are suffering and in need. Money to aide organizations helps with material loss but doesn't make up for the loss of loved ones.

  26. I've had fond memories of my two trips to the Yosemites; the walk from Glacier Point back to the village being a highlight. It's a pity that it has to come with the recent disasters,

  39. Beautiful scene - and the single man included adds scale, showing the majesty of the mountain. I love your little series of Yosemite shots of the last few posts. And of course beautiful words and sentiments too - it particularly brings it home when some of the people we 'meet' through blogging are caught up in these tragedies.
