Sky Watch Friday


Today is Sky Watch Friday and I took some shots today depicting our Salem Oregon skies. I love the fact that we ususally have great skies in the Northwest and we can readily obtain good photos.
These sunsets are only minutes apart and were captured off the coast of Kauai last August. We did a snorkling tour and this was on the way back to port. I always loved the sunsets in Hawaii, and will be returning for Hawaii's 50th anniversary of statehood in 2009.

Good shots! That Hawaiian sunset shot is perfect - but seeing it in person was even more perfect! Happy SWF!

Your Salem skies are gorgeous. My brother lives in Salem!

One of these days I want to visit Hawaii and see a few of those sunsets for myself.

All the photos are beautiful. I love the wispy clouds and then how the colours change and how much warmth they capture.

I've spent a few days in Oregon a couple years back. We were in Portland for ArtQuake. I bought an iron triangle from a crafter. Then drove to Tillimook for some cheese ;) I love your Hawaii sunset. I expect to see a sunrise after your next trip.

Your Salem skies are magic and witchcraft:-) Simply wonderful. And the sunsets are so tranquil with the reflection on the water. Very nice.

Just had to come back for another look. I think I've decided on the first and the third as my favourites - so different but both so beautiful.
