Harbor Skies


I have been looking at the sky from my unique seated position. Therefore, for Tish's great Looking at the Sky, this week, I am providing a shot not just of a nice sky but of the classy and stylish Patti as well.

The time is June 2007 at a wedding reception at a facility on New Haven Harbor. The day was humid with scattered thunderstorms around th
e harbor and Long Island Sound. But when the darkest skies passed, the lavender and pink hues occurred when just the right amount of sun blended with the misty droplets. The setup was to get a picture of her on the deck, and she looks great in this near silhouette with the Southerly breezes in her hair. The sky wasn't staged, but the overall result is nice. To see other beautiful skyscapes, check out the other sky photographers at Tish's site!

This is a very nice shot. The scene is so very soothing and serene. Very nicely done, Ralph. Thank you so much for your support!!!

I love the way that Patti is demurely bowing her head in this shot as if giving way to the gorgeous hues behind her - which wouldn't look half as beautiful without her standing before them!
