Margaret, I would gladly send you some snow, we still have plenty!LOL

I haven't taken part in this series in recent times for the simple reason that I had not taken many 'shareable' shots. This morning I was up there on the balcony early and enjoyed this sunrise beneath that coconut frond. The silly camera does not read my mind. It thought I was looking at the frond rather than the lovely sun!

I managed to catch the sun slipping away Friday evening. As you can see the trees are all pretty much leaved out again.

That is very pretty Dinu. I agree those crazy cameras, have a mind of their own, sometimes. ;) It happens to me a lot with bird pics. It'll focus on the branch, instead of the bird.
Kim, I would love, to be able to take shots on the lake, like you do. Love the reflection of the setting sun on the water in your pics.
Aww Moon, now you'll have to go behind the tree, to take the shots. lol Still nice though.I especially like your March 14 shot.

We had a nice sunset a few nights ago, but was not willing to get in my car, to go get some shots. If I take it from home, I get the power lines in it.
This one is from January.

Thanks much. Burn, if I go to the other side of the tree line I will have to climb my neighbor's back fence, or drive a couple miles to get there. I really like the bands of color in that shot. In a couple months the sun will set a bit further to the west and then it will just be roof tops...grin

We have had so much cloudy weather and rainy weather that there haven't been many interesting sunsets and the trees are in full leaf now, so I don't see the actual sun before 8am.

Kinda looks like everyone is missing in action...hope you are all busy in the gardens ...

Ah yes, Lily Love. There is one recent photo of sunset I took Sunday last. At the lake in Mysore. I was able to just make there in the nick of time, virtually as you can see. I was passing by the lake. The sun was still there in full and by the time I parked my scooter outside the fenced area and went in to the walk way some 100 metres away, I was just able get this shot.

Bernadette, is your snow gone ?
Jean, we had rain and Sahara sand over our country these days...they said it was a sandstorm and brought some of the sand over here. Everything is covered with dust and the rainwater was yellow...go figure! Your sun behind the clouds looks misterious too!LOL
I have a sunset from a week ago, also behind the clouds.

Hi everyone, I haven't taken any sunset lately. Adina It's has been so beautiful here, the pass few days, most of the snow that was left melted. I still have a little bit of snow and ice on the pond. Kim, nice to see you've succeeded with your cotoneaster, looking good! No hummingbirds yet. They usually arrive around May 10th. Sorry you guys are getting the lousy weather. Glad for your garden though ;) Jean sending sunshine your way.
Dinu, that is a beautiful view!

It's not a recent pic. Dug it out of the archive.

Just what you needed Adina...dust on everything right after you finished Spring cleaning...that must have been quite a storm to carry so much sand your way.

Thanks, Bernadette...I just need it to dry up enough to be able to get into the beds...the weeds think it is party time. Your pic almost looks like a brush fire.

Wow Margaret. Those are spectacular. I think you got every sunrise color in there.So vivid I thought they were sunsets...

This morning, my newspaper delivery man showed me the sun having 4 lines radiating from it. In fact it was the thin low clouds that were playing that trick. Only 3 days ago we had discussed about sunrise and how nice it is to watch. He is lucky as he goes on his bicycle to deliver newspapers to homes at that time.

Kim the lake does look tranquil and serene, perfect setting to wake up too.
Margaret, beautiful sunrise, the silhouette of the tree are stunning with those colors.
Adina, are you still cleaning dust and sand. Poor you it's been quite a year for you. Hope you get a break from all this weird weather.

It's been going really slow here. Rainy and cool, we might be getting some snow tomorrow. Hopefully this will be the last of it. My toy (camera) is gone to the doctor, don't know when, I get it back.

So nice.

Love your shots of sunrise over "tranquility bay" Kim. So lovely.

Adina, Nicho just gets cuter...such sweet "sugar cheeks"

Sherri, I love your Grandson's smile...he is a cutie...and certainly makes his Grandma happy. Love the sunrise/gerbera.

This is from a couple weeks ago...

Awww, we've had a nice sunset this evening, but I was too late. All I caught were these two hunters by the water. A great egret and a Black-crowned night Heron. (I think).

Aww Adina, he's such a great gardener. You've taught him well.
Interesting shot of the sunrise through the century building Dinu. Very nice.

Boy oh boy, he grew up fast. We first saw him struggling with the shovel in the snow, and then helping Nana in the garden, then poof, he's into race car. LOL Very handsome little fellow, Adina.
Jean, sorry your experiencing all that heat. Hope things cool down a bit there. Remember to drink plenty of fluid. I hate skeeters just as much, those little buggers sting and hate it when they make that buzzing sound when they get too close to my ear. Whispering too me, "I'm coming for your blood". And of course, It drives me into a panic mode. ;)
Kim, nice reflection shot. Your harbor is well ornate with all the beautiful foliage.
Margaret that is a great shot of the Pelican at sunrise.

Good Morning.

Yeah, Kim and I live in sauna land...grin. watching the news last night the weather man said our humidity was at 43%...it rarely ever drops below 50% here. And that just means we haven't had enough rain...but, they have been forecasting rain since Saturday...all the way through til next Monday...as yet, nary a drop.

Kim, what a cutie and such a sweet baby grin. Won't be long before he will be up on skis...and Grandma Kim will be watching like a hawk...grin.

Too funny Margaret...it used to be you used the baby in the bath pics to blackmail them with...grin

Bernadette, there are some days when I "slosh" my way around the yard...we have a rule around the house for summer...8 ozs of water in every hour spent outside. We each have our own 2qt/litre water jugs to make it easier to keep track of intake
.
As for mosquitoes, if ya hear them buzzing, it is a female and she will bite. The males also buzz, but they are not drawn to humans as male skeeters sip flower nectar, not blood. Females buzz around your head because they are attracted to the body heat...warm bodies equal lunch...grin

Love the pictures. It gets cloudy here in the evenings...does not make for a pretty sunset.

Yes, Jean. Can't wait until the little 'guy' gets up on the skii with Grandma Kim. I and my daughter double skii a time or two, but if my son, his baby and grandma will tripple skii, that would be something else wouldn't it?

Rain more often here, so I need not gauge at the humidity level. lol. I enjoy gardening, and my feeling about humidity? It's a love/hate relationship. For my plants love the humidity, me? not so much.

It's so humid, that I can easily propagate cuttings from breaking off a branch, stick it in the ground -- forget about it for a time. Then viola! Few weeks later their is a new plant in its place.

Yes those skeeters are something else. Neat info. on 'em Jean. I'm more concern about the disease they transmit.

Will try to catch some more sun rise/set to post soon.

On the camera-readiness. We'll have a way to go down into the future. Hopefully I'll have our camera upgrated by then. lol At the mean time, I need to "get back onto the saddle" so to speak. Skiing didn't come as a second nature to me. It takes practices, and last year I didn't try to ... so I'm working on getting back at it, begun at the Gym... (sweating ~).

Sunset last evening; My! Am I glad that way pass 8pm and there was sunlit outdoor.

There is something so serene about watching the sun come up over the water...understand why folks leave so early to go fishing.

We have had rainy, cloudy overcast weather for the last week or so. What little sun has been "watery" looking...I snapped a pic of our new residents (mated pair of woodpeckers) as they checked out the bird bath...everything has a muted, hazy look due to the clouds.
You can just make out the female hanging on the trunk to the right. Then she got her turn...

Hi Kim. I am often amazed at the difference between what I see and what the camera "sees". They seem to be settling in nicely...the little male is quite feisty...size doesn't seem to matter in proportion to moxie. Just a few minutes after their bath, they settled to have a bite...this blackbird was already there...but not for long...grin

Lily just love all your lake shots, must be so nice to live right on a lake. The orange/yellow roses are very nice, sort of sunset colors in a rose. Your grandson is an adorable happy lil' fellow!

Bern, love the pink sunset, nice when the sky has that pink coloring, doesn't happen too much here...and you have to be quick to catch it.

Jean, I'm late but Happy birthday! Nice catches of the woodpeckers, we have lots of them here...one likes to peck on my house, can be very irritating, scares the cats.

Adina, my goodness does Nicholas love that cake, I don't think he could open his mouth any bigger...lol. Love all your flowers, they are so beautiful, especially after all the snow pictures.

Margaret that is a wonderful photo of the pelicans with the pink sky.

Grits, welcome, love the lone fisherman on the lake shot...keep them coming.

Well we were on vacation down in south Florida in Ft. Myers Beach all week last week and I hoped to get some beautiful sunset shots for you all, however we hardly saw the sun, it was very cloudy all week. Didn't mind too much because kept the temperatures down in the 80's...I did manage to get some one night.

It might come your way, just skirting our coast right now. But a 90% chance of it becoming a storm. Keep a watch if it gets into the Gulf warm waters.

My memory from home was always nice, but the best was when we went to our uncles house on the mountain cross the Danube. Late at nite we put on the ground some hay and we slept under the sky , just the blankets to protect us from the bugs. I never forget that big sky full of stars, you felt like you can reach and grab them. you never see stars that close in the city.
They say the sundown is very beutiful down in Floriday Keys, people sit on the dock and wait for it. One of these days I will drive down there just for that. Etelka

Florida Keys sunsets for kiseta.

None of these are from Mallory square, but really looks the same there, just ocean. My photos from Key West are in a box somewhere since they pre-date the digital camera.

The first is middle Keys, Long Key and the others are Bahia Honda at the Old Railroad Bridge. They are of different nights, so each a bit different depending on the weather and sky of course.

Thank you Sunkissed, for helping me decide to go one of these days down to the Keys. It probobly would take me 2 days. Will stop at Venice beach, the water was so blue, I could not believe it. But I guess sunrise is a same everywhere, it means anouther day to enjoy. I am always thinking, the same Sun was over my sisters house 6 hours before mine, what a wonderfull feeling. I guess I get homesick once in the while. Etelka

Etelka, thanks. I've learned English in school and liked it so much, then I started to learn from books and movies ... then I've found DG and learned from my friends most of what I know now. Such wonderful people here on DG who have accepted me as one of their own and helped me with my English too. Just reading their posts and answering, using the online dictionary, I've learned a lot. Thanks for asking.

Still raining this morning, could hear the wind during the night. Seems like this storm is never going to pass, she wants to linger. I feel sorry for those here on vacation. We have had four inches of rain just since yesterday morning, so far 6 inches total from this storm. Maybe she'll move on out today...if not I'm going to have to use the treadmill and I hate that, so boring. :)

Thanks to you all for your good wishes. It looks like Sherri may have to build an ark since the storm has become stationary for the most part. Those storms can be so unpredictable. The latest i read said a possibility of as much as 25 inches of rain could fall over northwest Florida panhandle.

Hi everyone.
Etelka, so good of you to join us. I love your story of sleeping under the stars.It brought back some fond memories of when we went sliding at night under a clear sky. It was so pretty with all the stars.
Adina, those shots from June 20 are amazing!
Pretty sunrise on the lake, Kim. I see your Brug is flowering. I got one forming a bud. Can't wait to see it.
Sorry to hear the hurricane season has started for you gals, already. Hope no one get caught up in a devastating disaster.

Hi Bernadette, thank you for the good wishes. Bad weather is very unpredictable and scary some time. Before the wind subsided, it has sent one of my prized container Plumeria into the lake, but today, the wind is calm. And the view is lovely outdoor. We're expecting tripple digit temp. however. I can't really complain though, look at the terrible heat waves out west and all the weird wild fires!

Wonderful shots everyone. Lily nice shot of the brugs and misty lake. Hope the plant that fell in the lake is okay. The wind did minor damage to some plants, nothing bad. The worst was a big dead branch fell out of my oak tree and broke half of my Poblanos pepper plant...ugh!

And moon that is a wonderful moon shot. I'm looking forward to seeing that moon again. Last month was real cloudy and rainy the whole time the moon was full.

We just finally saw the sun and moon again yesterday...glad Debby finally took a hike. Although the temperatures were nice while she was here, even the last two days have been really wonderful...but the heat is coming back today. Back into the 90's they say.

You all stay cool...I'll be sipping on one of these tonight.

Oh, poor Adina. That's a ghastly temperature. Does your house stay cool inside during a heatwave?

Yes, a mild winter. We have about 7-10 severe storms during a typical winter and we've already had a few, including a couple that were selectively extremely destructive. A tornado totaled several shops and houses during one of the storms.

Hi everyone, due to the tail end of the storm, yesterday we've got some relief from the oppressive heat, temp. remains in the 70-80F. which was really enjoyable. But today it's going to be hot again. Adina, thanks for the cool refreshing view of the snow. Margaret, when temp. is in the 3 digits, even the water feels hot out there. Though I'll try to skii on the coming weekend if boat traffic isn't too crowded. Moon ignorance and greed, a deathly combo. Yearning for a gentler, and kinder evironment ...

Thankfully we can keep touch with family via skypes without having spend an arm and a leg via long distance call expense like the old days.

Margaret, how cool is the weather during winter there? I so happened on someone having mentioned somewhere in Whasington State it was in the 60F the other day. It must be ever so nice...

Adina for July 4th celebration we joined our extended family for a cook out and fireworks after dark. It was a joy to watch small children fascinated with fireworks. Our little guy (grandson) squinted his eyes with every big loud "popping" noises while he was securely held in his Moma's arms. But, he was really jumping with joy watching the "sparklings". Nothing is more wonderful to see things through the eyes of a child!!!

It's been lovely during the day, Kim. We've been getting about 22C (72F) during the day, although there's a cold front expected and the daytime temperature will drop to probably about 17C and the night time temps will rise to about 9C. They've been as low as 7C where we are. Our winters are very mild. Summer is the season which is hard to take.

Jean, I agree about internet!!
Margaret, good to hear you are well and safe. The winter temps in Australia are fantastic, so mild!
My DD has moved out with Nicholas and her BF to an apartment in Bucharest. It'll be good for them to manage things alone and figure out what they would want to do in the future. We had so many arguments while they were here, so we are a bit relieved, but we miss Nicholas.

Yes being a grandparent changes everything... In a good way. I'm so very grateful for family.

The last few evenings we've had some beautiful sunset. I'll share some with everyone a few here. Sherri, hope you're having a nice vacation. Jean, how is things going your way? Speaking of summer heat, Margaret, although it has subsided some, but hot enough for one to get up early to get outdoor chores out of the way before the heat beating down. Adina, I've to stay out of the sun for several weeks due to some med's side effects. Grrrrr, I complain to complain, for I so love the 3 seasons here except winter...when I cannot gardening.

Thanks Margaret, the last few days we've had similar sunset. That same evening I saw a young couple with a young child fishing, I wished I could have captured the perfect moment of the unknown family on that setting...but, I wasn't quick enough. Missed opportunity to a great pic. for this photographer. :((
Here is the mentioned 'fishermen' as they heading home toward the eastern shore.

Great colors Adina and Kim...they are all so serene. Adina, know you will miss Nicholas, but that will make his visits even more special...and no one does well with all the discord...Hugs to you.

Don't ya just hate it when a subject doesn't realize you are trying to get a perfect shot? GRIN...but, even them speeding away makes for a nice composite. Lovely as always Kim.

Hi Margaret..hopefully it won't get too hot too soon. Here, even on the days when the temps are in the low to mid 30's C the humidity kicks the heat index into triple digits. We are counting the days when it does NOT rain here now...feast or famine...grin

I'm back from vacation and really like all the sky shots that have been posted since I was last on here.

Adina, best wishes to your daughter, hope it all works out well for her. My youngest son, Nicholas is moving our for the first time next week into his own apartment. 2 down and one to go, but middle son may never leave. ☺

Kim, love the pink sunset, I want to come sit on your dock one day, you're not too far away.

Oh burn, love love the orange sky, very nice!

Moon, you are too funny...I see all that rain on the radar up there.

As promised I was able to get some sunrise and sunset shots while at the beach. And a cloud that looks like a turtle ☺

Hah, we can surely use some rain down here, haven't had much but a few drops here and there. But being by the lake, we're fortunate not feeling the impact of the drought. DH installed an irrigation system for the garden and that's paid off many folds. It's wonderful having children nearby. But when they're ready to be on their own it takes some adjustment. Best wishes to all.

Sorry it`s so gloomy your way Jean, you obviously have a good sense of humor about it. ;)
Kim, so good your DH was able to set up an irrigated system, your place must look magnificent with all that hard work.
Wonderful back lit clouds Sherri, love that. The beach looks so inviting, would love to see my toes web in that water. Neat turtle clouds.

Hi Bernadette. There is an old saying Everyone complains about the weather but no one does anything about it...I have always thought that was a rather dumb saying as you can't roll back the clouds or dial back the sun...so I seek out a grin where I can...beautiful sky in those pics...I got up before sunrise today because the weather man said we would have clear skies this morning...wouldn't ya know, this was a morning when the sun did not make a grand colorful entrance...just sort of sprung up like bread in the toaster...ah well, at least it was a DRY sun...grin

lol Jean I'm very happy for you, that you got to see the sun today, even if it wasn't in it's glory. The sky will color up for you someday soon, I promise. ;)
