Skywatch – A Beautiful September Evening

 

Skywatch Friday

I think most of you reading News From Italy will have noticed that I post lots of photographs here. Photography is something I have always enjoyed so now with time to experiment and the opportunity to share some of the results with you here, I seem to be taking more than ever.

Yesterday evening the colours in the sky were beautiful and there was a haze around the moon. By coincidence the Beautiful World Themed Thursday subject this week is Haze, so I took a series of photos which I am sharing here and one over there.

For sometime now I have also been thinking about linking up with a popular meme called  Skywatch Friday, this series of photos has given me the opportunity to do so.

The photos were all taken from our roof terrace on the evening of September 7th 2011.

 

Finally the haze around the moon in close up that I posted for Themed Thursday on Beautiful World

Wishing you all a pleasant weekend and do take a minute or two to enjoy the sky.

  1. The colors in that eighth picture down are spectacularly dramatic. The fact that blue and orange are complimentary colors adds to the dramatic effect. That was a convention recognized by the Renaissance painters, hence one will see the pairings of reds and greens, purples and yellows, blues and oranges (not the fruit necessarily :) ), etc. in paintings.

    I like those hazy moon photos also, it looks like the moon is really glowing.

  2. Awesome! The colours are so dramatic and the moon shots are captivating. I took some photos of the full moon last month which appeared orange and hope to post sometime. Did you see the same where you are? The lack of artificial light in the Italian countryside makes looking at the sky at night so enjoyable.

  18. Welcome to SkyWatch!
    I used to work for a farmer who called that haze a harvest moon. It meant that it was going to rain immanently so better get the grain in quick.

  19. The moon in your first photo glows like a gem over the Italian skies. I visited Italy a while ago and found that its enormous history also casts a spell.

  38. My first message was so garbled I must have had my hands on the wrong keys.
    Your photos are breathtakingly beautiful. I can't decide which on I like best. Some one commented on number eight, I love that one as well. I also love the purple ones. With the beauty of the sky and your talents you have an awesome team.
    Since I don't have your talent I make jokes. Thanks for visiting, Bob and I are still laughing.
    Have a great weekend, Ginger

  59. Hi Linda, many thanks for popping in. So pleased you were inspired. It's a funny thing about gates, but I just love having them, I feel more secure and cosy. I never understood those electronic gates that people have before, but I kind of do now! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, I can't believe the temperature your having! Love Linda x
