New skies

As it’s Losar in Tibet and New Year in most of Asia, I thought it only fitting to post the skies we had here on New Year’s Day (Jan 1).

The sun rose optimistically in the sky

Casting a glow on sleeping football nets

Pregnant with the hint of rosy promises to come.

By lunchtime the sun had cast off any show of shyness

To burst into a firework display

Of candy-floss spun clouds

And veils of pink and blue.

Click the pictures to really see them!

HAPPY NEW YEAR if you are celebrating one!

    • :-) Buster – or Oscar perhaps? – is fine! Running around with a hump on his back and without a care in the world!

    It’s lovely with pink and blue skies, but the bluest of blue skies is what I’d like to see…the other is so gloomy! Even though your photos are stunning-I’d like some sunshine and blue skies!!
