  1. I assume you took these beautiful sky pictures on different days and times, or you can be in three places at the same time :)

    I see you can't wait for friday again. Didn't you just had a long weekend there?

    What kind of trees are those in the first three pics, why are they leafless?

  2. You really get beautiful sky images. We rarely get much to photograph, always a visual treat coming by your blog.

  3. SR - hi, i was actually surprized upon opening my site this morning. I thought i programmed it for Fri morning. Anyway, i can't just revoke it as i already have 2 comments. Thanks as my first reader! Yes i took them in 3 separate places, as my labels showed! The 1st photo is a group of bamboos near the lagoon, leafless because it is the middle of dry season, dont know if they will still recover. The 2nd photo is avocado, dead already, courtesy of very dry environment. Mabini has a climate type like the Ilocos Region because we are at the west side of Batangas. BTW, there are trees which are called deciduous like narra, leaves fall during summer months but recover again. We have a tree in Mabini which looks like the first photo now!

  4. Donna - i am glad i can provide you some diversion sightings, aside from your cold surroundings you can see them warm and hot in my posts. Actually the whole day here provides a lot of wonderful sky variations, and they also vary in different places. Just like the 3 photos, which i took riding on the 2-hr bus from my town to the city where i live. The last photo was on top of the preceeding two.

  5. I note that you always look up no matter where you are and where you go. :) We can walk side by side and see totally different things.

  6. One - haha, that might be true somehow, but i always see the small creatures, it is just that i cant document them with my less efficient camera, which gives more justice to the scenes above. miss you!

  7. The sky always looks better in the provinces, I think.

  8. Hello Andrea! Glad to see such a wonderful blue sky. I miss the blue sky. We had many days of rain in the afternoon here lately. Today, it looks like it is going to be a sunny day. I am keeping my fingers crossed for it to last till end of the end of day. Have a great weekend!

  13. Great pictures, Andrea... We finally had some beautiful blue skies today--after some horrible storms yesterday.

    I love them all--but the 3rd from the bottom is my fav... Wow!
    Hugs,

  18. A grand trio of skies, Andrea... and yes, I agree, it's hard to beat a Philippine sunset!

  19. Yes, I cannot dispute that your sunset pictures are better than ones I can take from my backyard! Well done, Andrea!
