Stunning Sky

My Sunday Photographs this week were taken within a few minutes of each other.
I was visiting another Scottish National Trust property and whilst walking the woodland trail, I suddenly stopped in my tracks to look at the sky.
(Yes, I'm one of those people who can just stop whatever they are doing or wherever they are going to capture an image). 
The light and sun's rays were spectacular.
I just loved the way the light shone through the clouds.
It gave an exquisite fan of light below the setting sun. 
I know it sounds like an lame excuse, but unfortunately my photographs don't do it justice.
It really was spectacular.
It was certainly a show stopper.
I'm linking up with My Sunday Photo and

If you have time then why not nip across (using the links above) to see more great photos.
Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again soon
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
xoxo

  1. It looks stunning from your photos and I can imagine it was even more so in real life. Love the way the rays of sunlight fan out from the gap in the clouds.

    1. The rays fanning out from the centre is what caught my eye Louise. It really was stunning.

  2. Very dramatic! It looks almost as if the light is fighting its way out by prising open a hole in the clouds.

    1. That's it precisely Tim. It was very unusual. It's just a pity that the photograph doesn't show it's full potential.

  3. What a stunning sky and great capture - it looks like there is a hole which is letting the light through.

    1. We had had a fabulous day at a Nation Trust garden Fiona, and had just finished walking the woodland walk, when we saw this sky.
      It had been a really hot, so it was a beautiful end to the day. I've never seen a sky like it.

  10. Hi Neesie, I love skies too and I can see why you had to stop and take those photos. So beautiful! I love it when the sun filters through clouds, it's quite heavenly.

    1. When we were young Debbie, we always called the sun filters coming through the clouds... 'The Fingers of God'. I adore sky photographs too.

    1. I think that's the norm for many people who have mobile phones. I love sky, clouds, sunrises and sunset to name but a few Jennifer.

    1. I really did try Elaine, but this was the best I could do. It was so unusual and not like any other sky that I've seen before.

    1. Me too Carol... I'm always gazing up at the sky and running for my camera if I think there's a shot about to happen.

  18. I'm another one of those people who's always trying to capture the magnificence of the sky but never can. You came close, my dear! High five! ;)

    1. Thanks for the high five Rita,
      It appears that there are quite a few of us sky addicts out there. I love the photo and am even thinking about making a print from it.
