Sky Watch


This photo was taken last night following a very heavy shower. The deer shelter in a nearby wood when it is raining and venture out when it clears. I caught them as they were emerging.
Raby Castle is a great place to visit with beautiful grounds . If ever you are in Co. Durham do take a look.
Click on photo to enlarge. Sorry the enlargement is a bit hazy.

There are some great photos

here.

Hope all my American viewers enjoy 4th. July.

Great catch for SWF! God and Nature first made us what we are, and then out of our own created genius we make ourselves what we want to be. Follow always that great law. Let the sky and God be our limit and Eternity our measurement.... Happy weekend! Mine's up too hope you can drop by..

It is well known that we Portuguese once sailed the seven seas searching for new lands, wealth and adventures.
We were brave in those days and gave the world new worlds!

Luckily I don’t have to sail the big oceans on a small ship to sea the wonders of our world …
No Sir, I just need to check with Mr. Tom, the finest host there is, for a trip around the world with SKY WATCH TOURS and with a click here, a click there I am quickly in the USA, England, Brazil, Italy, China, Australia, Finland … well, everywhere.

And on each stop I come to see a little marvel of our world under a great sky!
Hope you can come and see my piece of the sky at lenses & visions

I don´t think mine will be a match to yours but even so ...

I love castles. When I am in England, Wales or Scotland I try to see as many as possible. We haven't got such castles in Holland, not such big ones anyway!

It is such a nice scene. So peaceful and filled with life. I think it is an ideal SWF post.

Very different for skywatch, but great to see my one and only castle today.

The ramparts of your castle are stark against the overcast sky. But the deer - I cannot take my eyes from them. I did not realise they came in such magnificent herds. Nicely framed shot.
