When the Sky Comes Calling #Skywatch

For those who love Nature, beauty is everywhere and although we humans are messing up with Mother Nature big time, there are moments when we all watch in awe the surreal and the ethereal happenings which the spectacles of Nature bring into our lives. The only prerequisite to enjoy such everyday spectacles is perhaps having the heart to see and appreciate the beauty amidst us and staying mindful of the fleeting moments because they do keep changing ever so frequently, and literally, in the blink of an eye that it’s all over before you’ve got your phone camera to freeze the moment. My sky shots happen on the go, in between my chores or my walk, always while I’m busy with something unless I happen to be holidaying, in which case, I happen to dedicate myself wholly in the pursuit of random sky captures.

This week for Skywatch Friday, I bring you some shots of the sky that I’ve taken over the past ten days, while figuring out my new phone while the iPhone was off for repairing (due to an accidental fall!) I’ve come to love this phone even though I’m not a great fan of Androids. I love the camera too, and have been tinkering around to find new settings that work better in getting me some good shots. Anyways, here go the pics:

I hope you enjoy my colourful sunset skies even though the netting in the balcony might seem to be irritating for some of you. Wishing my fellow Indians from all across the globe a very happy Republic Day and everyone else a wonderfully productive Friday.

Above everything else, I wish you moments that you may call your own, to enjoy as you love best. And, of course, do try and spend some time with Mother Nature and share your pics because we at Skywatch love to share our skies with everybody else. So, looking forward to your slice of the sky.

Have a great and relaxed weekend. See you next week.


Linking this with #Skywatch Friday, where people post beautiful sky shots from different parts of the world.) In case you’re interested, here are my previous #SkywatchFriday posts. Thank you for stopping by. Hope to see you again.

  1. I too get my skyshots on the go. Sadly I hate the netting that ruins my shots and often fail to get sunrises because of that irritant. Greetings for Republic Day to you too my friend .

    1. I too think the netting is an irritant that can be done away with, at times. But, given the relief that comes from putting one up I’d be happy to put up with that too. After all, we can always position the camera through the gaps to get a net-free shot. But, keeping the pigeons away is one hell of a task, esp on the higher floors!
      Btw, Happy Republic Day to you :)!

  2. Love the orange and yellow hues in your shots, Esha.
    Even though iphone is aspirational but given the innovation that android manufacturers are coming out with Apple is now playing a catch up! Thanks for sharing beautiful sky shots.

    1. Thanks, Arvind. The colours, well and truly add life and beauty to the tree. Have to agree on the iPhone bit. But then, I’m loving the ease that comes from my android too…the camera is good I’d say.

      1. Certainly, colours are really important. I have seen some amazing results from mid range Android phones. Anyways it’s always a debatable topic 😜😊
