Close of Day's Play : Bhutan and Dooars


Watching the Torsa River run
My mother taught me, when I was quite young, to look out for 'special effects sunsets' at the end of the monsoon every year. As the monsoon clouds begin to gather up and withdraw before giving way to a new season, the evening sky becomes dramatic, while the weather turns milder.


A Little Heaven


Panning for Gold?


Sea of Tranquility


A Volcanic Cloud?

I liked the "sea of tranquility".. it reminded me of cotton candy!!

Here, we sometimes get these lovely pink-tinged clouds at sunset, which are so different every time.

Panning for Gold is a nice passtime and the place they are working at is just beautiful to see. All the pictures are.

My Sky Watch Friday blog is at my
Canon Pixels
blog. If you have time I would appreciate your having a look at the sky peeking through the oak tree leaves./a>

Carpe Diem!
