Oh, my god, look at that amazing sky, with the contrails making another layer behind the "heavenly" clouds. I didn't know where our beautiful winter sunsets went this year, but now I do! They took a vacation to Ocala.

I had to laugh out loud at the "ram" in Ramses. Yeah, right, and the pharaohs were speaking English :D

Last summer we had the most unusual and beautiful sky above Moscow. Now I see we received it from Ocala.
I hope this beauty in Moscow was not influenced by climate change.

A 'herd' of clouds! Amazing and spectacular, one of your best images recently, Jacob!

Bibi said...

That is just gorgeous. Am speechless!

BTW, I never knew what a lanai was until I watched The Golden Girls in the 80's!

I think it would be a dream to open the eyes and see lights ,colours and magnificent clouds like those in this shot!

WOw do I love skies like this. Fantastic capture Jacob. I especially love the way the sun is dancing on the top of the clouds in the foreground. This must have been quite a sight to see in person.

Marie said...

What a beautiful view! That must have brightened your whole day!

JM said...

Just beautiful!

Between us, as we say in France and in French, "he" is a mafioso (kind of) :-))))

Bob Poris said...

Lovely! We had a similar view. I think Ken Colen ordered it for both our communities.

A lot of great pix, but wondering if you have considered adding videos. Doesn't really cost much these days, they have pocket sized video cams you can carry around everywhere, and they are easy to upload to blogs. Some of your pictures would have been great as videos... FYI, here is a link to info on how to create a real video blog....

What a stunning capture of nature's beauty. I enjoy the pastel tones.

Lois said...

OK I would just be living on the lanai all the time! This is gorgeous Jacob. Sorry I haven't been visiting much lately. I am driving myself crazy with this wedding stuff!

Virginia said...

I want a lanai and I want that gorgeous sunset and some warm weather!

Rose said...

I love that sky! I am not sure how dumb this makes me, but you are the first person I have ever heard use the term lanai in real life! Only heard it on Golden Girls.

Halcyon said...

Stunning! I think this is what they mean by BIG sky!

Trillian said...

Wonderful photo! And early evening is my favorite moment of the day...

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Sure is pretty! The sky has been really nice lately here in EG and I'm glad we aren't hogging ALL the beauty.
