SKY WATCH FRIDAY


We had bushfires on the eastern edges of our village in October,2004 that threatened homes before thankfully being brought under control by the wonderful volunteers of the Rural Fire Service and a couple of helicopters carrying those big 'buckets' of water. The sun & the light cast through the smoke were very eery.


If you waft over to the SkyWatch home page, you'll find a gorgeous photo & poem, & links to a host of other SkyWatch Friday posts.

This is the kind of adventure that's more fun to see in pictures than to actually live, SCARY!

Interesting shot, but terribly dangerous looking fire... We've had more than our share of wild fires here in California, so or skies have been smokey for quite a while now.

Probably the most fascinating skywatch photo today CabaC. Does look eerie. Have a good weekend dear.

Great drama caught in your shot. So scary. As Photoaday said, we have had terrible fires here in California too. So smokey and the air is so polluted.
