Skywatch #185:

I love everything about a cruise. This coming from a woman who is afraid of water and cannot swim. What is not to love? Multiple destinations, only one time to pack and unpack. Entertainment galore on board. And the food is not all that bad.

One of the activities I enjoy during sea day is sit on the deck while skywatching, no matter what time of day one finds interesting cloudscapes. I never leave my cabin without the camera. I'm afraid I'd missed something worth capturing.

Sometimes you get lucky and get a sunset that's really stunning. When that happens I'm sure you all understand why I took about 100 shots of this jawdropping sky show at twilight.

SKYWATCH is a weekly gathering of sky lovers and sky watchers. Join us.

it's fantastic to watch how clouds change from time to time. they decorate the sky beautifully either in surise or just before dusk. and definitely a plus if you could watch it on a cruise!

the fourth photo to me is the best in this set.

Absolutely breathtaking!

Andrea said...

Even cloud watching is really a fascinating hobby! I am at the west side of the condominium building and i learn that sunsets are like finger prints, they even change so fast in 15 min. No two sunsets are the same! I am waiting for the posts about your destinations.

Truly magnificent!

You're right -- that sunset is spectacular and I probably wouldn't have stopped at 100 pictures. But the pictures of the blue skies are also beautiful.

Prem said...

Wonderful experience on the cruise and to witness such beautiful sky.

Nothing like being on the open seas during a spectacular sunset. I for one am chicken to get on a ship, but it is on my bucket list. Enjoy yourself!

i love the second one! i can't swim too. i'm not sure if i'd love a cruise. i don't like boat rides. they make me sea sick. when i went to guimaras, i wanted to die when we went island hopping. ack!

The first shoot resembles the ocean waves curling on the sides of your cruise ship!

Luna Miranda said...

the last 3 photos are my favorite. i remember stunning sunsets and sunrises while on board ships when i was younger. despite the sea disasters here, i miss the Negros Navigation trips we took, feeling bakasyonista ka talaga sa barko.:p

Indrani said...

That is indeed a spectacular sight!
Good you froze several moments of them.
