SkyWatch Friday; Variations and Impressions;


Very early morning on lake Rotorua NewZealand; I like how the sweep of pink reflects in the lake.
Driving along this black cloud was following us. In front huge NewZealand Flax.

A wind swept sky; beautiful stands of Pampas grass. I think it is a declared weed today, it was introduced by early settlers as windbreaks. I think it is beautiful.

On our way to the Coromandel we saw this huge wetland area. The sky was a splendid match to this natural wonder.

Please follow the link SkyWatch Friday;
Thank you to the team.

Lovely photos ... the first one is particularly beautiful with that touch of pink in the sky and reflected on the water.

These are amzing photos Titania, especially the forst one.
We have pampas grass in South Africa as well,and it has also been declared a noxious weed. Only problem is that it is very prolific

Wonderful captures of gorgeous skies! They look remarkably like many of the skies we have here in Seattle. The first one is exquisite and I do love the pink reflections on the water. Have a great weekend, Titania!

When I saw the first photo, I thought, you have the toe toe plant too in Oz? Then I am glad you showed New Zealand photos.

Glad you enjoyed your holidays.

All your sky photos are just fantastic but I especially like the first one with lovely pink reflects on the water and the photo with Pampas grass; it really is so beautiful.

I really like the picture with the pampas grass. I have never seen grass with such a beautiful flower head before. The sky shots are lovely. New Zealand is a wonderful place to visit.
