Skywatch, after and before

Well, we're hot and dry again. Truly, I can't recall a more brutal August in our little country! The dry heat provides sunsets like this one from tonight - nice, but without much oomph:
And so, I decided to make this post a little more interesting, and present you with another sky photo from our trip to the beach last week. That was a bit more picturesque!
Ah, that's the stuff! As always, feel free to click on either photo to get a closer view.


And for more fun sky-oriented photography from around the world, go check out Skywatch Friday! You'll be glad you did :)
Have a great weekend, everyone!

Beautiful sky shots, Toby. Thanks for sharing them:)

Marvelous captures, Toby! There's something breathtaking in the starkness of your first shot and you can almost feel the heat. And, of course, I love the clouds in the second shot and the rays of the sun shining through them. I don't think you have to "wish" to be a photographer any longer, you ARE a very good photographer! Have a lovely weekend!

I think both shots are lovely, Toby! I will admit that the second one has a bit more drama, though. :)

Great sunset shots. I like the rays from the sun in both of these, and the sparkle on the water in the second shot.

Both are beautiful in their own way
Well captured.

Clouds make all the difference in a sunset! Our skies have been disappointing of late too. The autumn will provide different and better opportunities! Meanwhile, these are great shots! Happy skywatching and happy Friday!
