Skywatch Friday: Katie's Sunset



If you look closely at the bottom left corner of the photo, you will see the almost ghostly image of my daughter's face.  She just happened to walk into frame when I was shooting.  She would kill me if she knew I was posting her picture, however faint.  Ah, the joy of living with teenagers...

Take a virtual tour of skies from all over the world; visit Skywatch Friday.

her image there makes this photo even more lovely.

i know what you mean about posting photos of your daughter though - mine is horrified if i post one of her without her approval and i've done it before. oh well.

Great photo!!

Sandradb said...

Wonderful picture, and I think that your daughter's touch made even more special (but we won't tell her that :-))

Maria said...

I also think that her image makes the photo even more lovely! Teenager.... *LOL*
Happy New Year to you and your family!

Your daughters deportment is wonderful and she is beautiful.
One can hear her saying. To be, or, not to be?, that is the question.
Lovely picture, thanks for sharing.

Happy SWF!Great photo!

Deborah Godin said...

I'm so glad you risked her teenage disapporval (not a small thing I know) to point that out. It's the perfect touch for this photo - a happy accident - her upturned face looks like it's reflecting moonlight that's just outside the frame! Lovely!

Beautiful colours.

Photo Cache said...

I wouldn't have noticed it, but thanks for pointing that out. It's going to be our secret, she wont find out that you posted her beautiful face here.

Lovely shot, btw.

Your words about your daughter's photo made me smile.

Her image makes the photo even more special.

Janie said...

Your daughter's image adds a nice touch to a beautiful sunset. Someday, when she's no longer a teenager, she'll be proud to have been a part of your post!

Bee said...

Her image there does make it more special. I love it.

Nothing like those teenage daughters, huh? I have one myself.

Nice SkyWatch shot and stunning image of your daughter.

Denise said...

She is a lovely addition to your photo, though I didn't see her until you mentioned that she was there. A very nice photo all round. Thanks for sharing it.

Kathy said...

You could have just told everyone you didn't know who that was and pretend maybe it was a spirit. LOL great shot. The blues and pinks are beautiful.

Country Girl said...

Well, let's not tell her. I think it adds to the oh, so beautiful photograph!

Mary: The beauty of this photo is so wonderful. You have made a really neat capture. She must not read your blog or you would get caught.

The pinks and blues make for such a lovely sky!

Your daughter's image is almost ghostly. I might have missed her if you hadn't pointed her out.
Living with teenagers - bless you Mary. :)
Have a wonderful weekend.

Beautiful sunset that includes your daughter!

Hildegarde said...

Haha, the secret pleasures of a collegue 'something reluctant housemom', great !!

FjordWoman said...

What a gorgeous shot!
Ah, teenagers {says the Mom of a 17 yr old boy, through gritted teeth, lol}...are they all the same? My beautiful kid won't let me take pics of him, as they may not be deemed 'cool' enough for viewing by the general public, so therefore, said pics are non-existent.

FjordWoman said...

She's a beautiful girl, btw!

Pearl Maple said...

Ahhh teenagers, a delightful but quickly passing time of life, just like some of the fantastic sky photos you share with us.

Thanks for your kind comments on my post earlier and Happy Sky Watch Friday.

I'm glad my kids are all young still and they don't mind their photo being posted at all. :)

What a lovely SkyWatch photo!

Ms. Hays said...

OMGosh - this is sooo pretty & WoW, the face is scary - it really does look ghostly! And what she doesn't know won't hurt you! hehehe
