Nature photography, plants and ornamentals and other interesting animal encounters from travels
I like the cloud formations in the first photo, it looks like cotton candy.
Great sky pictures, Andrea.. I especially love the one where the sun is hitting those clouds --and turning them orange... GORGEOUS.Hugs,Betsy
AL - thanks for coming over, i was able to know you and your lovely photos and travels. Betsy - thank you once again, you never fail to see and comment in my posts. I appreciate it very much.
LOvely shots, the last one is so cleverly done. :)
Andrea,I knew it, you lived in the land of giants! Nice clouds, the orange ones were my favorite.
wow! I liked them all Andrea. Beautiful pix n the last one is quite interesting indeed. A show stopper.
Dear Andrea, Beautiful cloud pictures. My favorite is the one of Tacloban City. P. x
I look to heavens each day and so love this post, Andrea! The last image ... amazing!
I must be dreaming... I thought I was surrounded with cotton candies and midgets.
the kids in Cagsawa are quite adept at photography tricks. i love the fiery strip of of cloud you captured in Tacloban.
OMG what have you done to the kids??? (big grin) Cool image. :) Love the skyshots. :)
nice shots of beautiful clouds
Dear Andrea, thank you for your visit on my blog and your nice comment! Yes, Egypt is a wonderful country, especially when you cruise the Nile or visit Kairo and Gizeh. I hope you will be able to visit this country one day. Unfortunately I have never been to the Philippines so far, and so I am very happy to see the beautiful sunsets and those wonderful cloud formations on your photos! They are so lovely! Thanks for sharing!The picture of your children is really funny! Haha, did you shrink them???
Andrea, you cracked me up with the last one! Clouds you way your captured them are beautiful. [To answer your question, I am a night owl and I stay up until 2:30 am to be among the first. It's like a feeding frenzy: the first 30 or so bloggers are all trying to link up at exactly the same time. If I waited till MY morning, I'd be #150! LOL! Btw, it's 2 am now and I'll think it's pillow time. Enjoy your weekend, Andrea.]
PS. You also asked if I PS my photos. They are almost always cropped, sometimes a lot, mostly a little. Then I adjust the contrast and perhaps the levels, I straighten when needed, and I add my copyright. But unless I state that I made adjustments, as I did with my street shots a few days ago, I don't do anything fancy to them, that is I don't do anything you couldn't do in a dark room. My sky shots this week are pretty well SOC.
The fluffy clouds in the first photo are wonderful, Andrea! And I love the orange clouds in the photo below.
Great cloud photos. I especially like the one taken in Legaspi, Albay. The clouds have been magical here, too. Unfortunately, very little rain from them. Thanks for stopping by blog and commenting.
I love the cloud pictures, and it seemed that the first one was taken from above? Do you live in the land of giant tourists and winged photographers?
gorgeous skywatch photos as usual! that last photo is funny - composed perfectly!
The last photo is a good one. Sky photos promising a woonderful weekend for you.Have fun!
I totally appreciate the feelings you give my photos. They all inspire me, and i also love the differences in opinions about them.Betsy - we don't have the amazing colors of your trees in the horizon, but we are gifted with wonderful sunrises and sunsets at the end of our endless beaches.Indrani - thanks for your kind words.Randy Emitt - you're my idol for butterfly photographers and carpenter, haha! Land of giants, correct, LOL.Radhika - I always think about your when i see bonsai trees. I hope you think of me when there are nice clouds and sunsets.Pam - you should have seen my old sunset photos, they are lovelier, as these set are just posted because i have nothing more to post, LOL.

I am also a SOC blogger.EG Wow - i tell you, trust me, our clouds and sunsets are even lovelier when seen in person.Girl Sprout - maybe you are from Legaspi, Albay, nice meeting you, and thanks for visiting here.Wendy - yes i am showing my naughty side again.Stephanie - I bet you also have these scenes in Malaysia as we have almost the same climate.

Such lovely clouds, but I just love that last shot. An interesting perspective! Is that amaranth common in your country? It's not very common here.
