Violet Skies........




~  Port River Estuary  ~


Last week I posted a capture taken from almost the same position.
This pic was taken about 15 minutes later when the skies
 had deepened to a rich shade of violet
and closer to the horizon a beautiful colour
 that I can't even put a name to
could it be vermillion?

This is my contribution to
"Skywatch Friday"

A sky that evokes poetical words in someone, though I can only stammer, like the other bloggers:"Beautiful, beautiful"....
Thank you for your visit and comment. It is bad for this family and the whole country sympathize with them of course.It's tragic.

I like everything about this image Dianne, the sky colours are amazing as are the reflections, I also like the bursts of light highlighting the underside of the bridge.

Such a gorgeous picture.

NixBlog said...

Delicious capture, Dianne! Vermillion is bright red. I'd say your sky is a rich dusty pink. I particularly like that streak of Naples yellow in the sky and of course the reflections!

Stephanie said...

Amazing capture...I love the lights reflecting in the water.

Arija said...

A great sky image Dianne, the pink in the sky is more a very diluted rose madder.

Sorry I haven't posted your memory stick back yet. Not much seems to stick in my heat at present. I sort of just muddle through the days.
