And just one more because sometimes there are too many and you can't really take them in....and when that is the case, you miss the 'experience'....you know? I'm off to 'dreamland' now....I hope I dream about these gorgeous sky's....
More To Come.....
ALL of these take my breath away, Naomi. One of the things that constantly brings me back to my camera is the way the same scenes can be rendered completely unique by a simple change in light. It is such a subtle yet powerful force. You captured it in this series.
In answer to your excellent question, I save 'em all. Well, not the obviously failed pictures. But once I triage my images down, they get burned off and archived. I used to use CDs, but since I switched to the new camera, the file sizes are so huge that I've transitioned to DVDs.
Wow, these views are fantastic! We just don't see sky like that here...at least I've not!
Not only fabulous but breath taking - thanks for sharing!
Wish you a lovely Sunday and a great week ahead:-)
Sorry to be in a hurry but I have to paste this text in 42 blogs !
But I see the pictures are wonderful !
For infos Please come to my blog, CATS ON TUESDAY is created.
I love photographs of the sky, and often take them, myself .. I love sky watching even more!
we had the most beautiful sunrise yesterday!
I don't think we appreciate that each day is a gift when we are very young...
Beautiful shots Naomi.. I keep waiting for your tabletop book to come out!
Wanted to stop over to say how thankful I am to have found you and your blog...and for the beautiful stories and memories that you share with your readers....I love visiting you....
The skies are glorious indeed...I just posted some shots taken in Colorado last week....
So beautiful. And something to be thankful for.
Spectacular photos, Naomi. Sometimes it really is true...the best things in life are free.
Wow! It's amazing how much the sky/view changes from day to day - or even hour to hour - isn't it? Great pics as always :)
great, great views! particularly the last one, those vivid colors, wonderful!!!!
Hi. I'm back from my travels to NY adn thought I'd drop by and was greeted by your beautiful photos of your view. You are so lucky to have such a fabulous view and to see so much sky. It really is natures canvas isn't it? Hope all is well with you.
HOW BEAUTIFUL. I USED TO WALK THE BEACH ON CAPE COD AT SUNSET AND AT SUNDOWN...ALWAYS AWED BY IT...IT MADE ME FEEL LIKE PART OF THE UNIVERSE AND SO ALIVE......LYN
One can never experience too many sunrises or sunsets. And they are truly an experience. I particularly love the last one, the colors are so gorgeous, so brilliant and yet, so soothing.
Naomi, this is too weird. I was watching TV with my kids and I noticed the clouds outside. When I got up to come to the computer, my kids asked me where I was going. I told them that I wanted to email you to please take pics tomorrow of the pending rain storm as well as pictures afterward because you know how beautiful the L.A. skyline is after a good rain, plus the Santa Ana's that are supposed to be here on Tuesday. I love your view shots! And what do I find here? Your post on the view from your place!! I'd say that's more than a coincidence, hmmm? Great minds think alike, they say! So please, take pictures of your wonderful view during the next couple of days!!
Sunrise/sunsets are magnificant they have the power to relax and recharge your soul all at the same time
Awesome pix! You make me want to head on over right now !! :)
Ahhh! We do share the same sky! Our plants and views may be different, but our skies are a lot alike. I have some I've been collecting to post...soon!
That last pic is magnificent!
beautiful photos! there was a gorgeous sunset here tonight- bright pinks and hazy purples. but i didn't have my camera with me, darnit! you know, when i saw your comments on colleen's site before i ever linked over, i always pictured some mountain woman living way up in a holler somewhere b/c of your name! :)
You always make LA look its best.
They certainly do speak for themselves Naomi. Very lovely!!
Dear ole Lady !
There must be a misunderstanding (I first thought it were my english, lol) I wrote :
"You do what you want, a picture is enough too. Just let us have fun that's the most important thing !"
I never said a picture is not enough. I only said no full litterbox !
But if you want ....
If you don't like Mr. Linky there is no problem either. You just click on mine, so people know that you have posted and that's it. You don't have to put one on your blog if you don't like it. Everybody comments anyway.
Thanks for joinging and I am curious to meet your cat !
I feel the same, sunrise, sunsets or stormy black skies just let me sit down and watch and dream ... I always remember the feeling I had going on a camel back through the desert and watching a sunset this was so beautiful.
I'm going to enjoy these for tonight. The wind's a blowin outside here and the chill is on. The man tells me on TV when I wake for work tomorrow, I'll have 2" of the white stuff to deal with. First snow...I prefer your sunset :)
Beautiful photos, Naomi!
What a gorgeous view you have from your porch! Fantastic!
My favorite photos are nature shots and I particularly love sunrises and sunsets. I find you get such a dramatic color palette then. Though I never seem to capture all the colors on film that I see with my eye. I guess I'll just have to keep trying. Love your photos btw. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I'm still catching up on my reading after being away from the computer for so many days.
sweet dreams sweetie.
The great thing about you is that you actually appreciate your spectacular view. So many people live such hurried lives they probably wouldn't take the time to really enjoy that view!
Thanks for sharing, those photos are beautiful.
Oh and I hope you had a lovely holiday weekend!
hi! remember me??? i haven't been over here in so long because of nablopomo keeping me busy and bogged down... or is it blogged down? hahaha... anyway, i'll be catching up with you come december but
i have a writing dilemma on my blog about a paper i need to write... if you have any ideas/suggestions, i would greatly appreciate your input!
Those are beautiful shots, Naomi! It kind of makes me think I should slow down just a little bit. Soon, very soon.
One of my favorite things are clouds. I took courses in college in meteorology and climatology because I like clouds so much.
I have one I'm going to put up for Wordless Wednesday tomorrow ... it's from a few nights ago!
These are all just beauuuuutiful! I do love the sky --in all it's various forms!
It is ironic that the smog makes the sky look so much more beautiful in LA.
Me again. I had to have another look. I took a picture of the setting sun earlier today - a totally spontaneous moment that I was able to share with the munchkins. I thought of these images as I was taking my own.
I'm a continent away, yet the influence was rather powerful. Cool how that works!
