  13. Ann, it was a few weeks ago on a Sunday evening. I was driving home and noticed the amazing show in my rear view mirror, so found a good lookout spot to take some snaps.

  15. Awe-inspiring... but I have to say there is more than a hint of ominousness. Would fit right in a Ghostbusters movie ;-P

  19. Heippas !
    Mistä voi löytyä noin ihania taivaita vai onko sitä Islannin tulivuoritaivasta. Suomessa en sitä havainnut koko aikana lainkaan. Suomensininen taivas on kyllä aina yhtä kaunis ja sitä kuvailenkin usein. Sinulla on hienoja kuvia ja juttuja blogissasi, ihailen niitä suuresti ja tutkin mielenkiinnolla maailman kauniita rakennuksia ja siltoja ja muita ihmeellisyyksiä, joita olet kuvannut.

  44. are shepherds to see the red sky? It is so beauitfully red that it is almost unreal.

    When I was young in Borneo, in August, we had skies like that. Mum tells, it is the time the natives have slash and burn. At that time there were a lot of timber, now? so sad, the orang utan has no where to hide.
