Friday Skies #1

My balance, or lack thereof, makes it difficult to take photos.  So I decided to share this Memphis sky that my daughter captured moments before the sun sank from view last night.

I couldn't resist playing a bit. I don't think it's possible to beat nature, but I did think that this version, created with a PSP Chalk effect, accentuates the details on the ground and gives a different perspective to the sky. It's lighter and made me wonder if that was how the sky had looked a little earlier.



  1. Your Goulash looks good.
    And you sky pictures too! :)
    Happy weekend from Cairo!


  2. A very nice orange sky, the chalk effect looks nice too.

    Thanks for stopping in my LATSOF. Have a great weekend!

  3. Lovely sunset! I like the first photo, but the pastel chalk effect is interesting.

    So where did you get that kitty cat walking by? He's so cute!

    Thanks for visiting me this morning

  4. Beautiful sunset! And I love what you did with the second photo, it most likely looked like that a bit earlier. Happy latsof!

    Thanks for visiting. :)

  5. That's so pretty and I love the effect you did to it! :o)

  6. The sky is a bit rugged in style yet delicate in texture. No balance problems apparent to me!. The edit gives this sky the look of an Impressionist's painting. Neat!

  7. What a beautiful sunset! I wish we'd had the sun up recently in order to see it set but alas we seem to be buried under the clouds! Makes you appreciate the sunsets even more, though!

    Thanks for visiting today and welcome to the meme!

  8. I liked the original but the chalk effect is really neat. I wish I had gotten a few of the earlier sky, alas I was shopping for a new power supply instead. ~ Calico Contemplations

  9. The sky was lovely over Memphis. And I know what you mean about finding it hard to resist playing. LOL

  10. Beautiful golden sunset.
    Have a nice weekend, and thanks for your comments over at mine.

  11. Grandma, lovely photos! Great chalk effect! Thanks for visiting my blog. I really appreciate it! :)

  12. Beautiful sunset photos. Love the colours and the formation of the clouds

  13. Very nice sky shot; I like the colors a lot!

  14. Hi Patti,

    Glad you like my kitty. I made him using Paint Shop Pro and Animation Shop graphics software.
