Skywatch Friday post

There was a completely different feel to Molo Audace yesterday morning compared to the relaxed atmosphere photographed there a couple of weeks ago (see 11 October) .
A strong southwest wind (libeccio) raged across the gulf. The sea was swelling up and the high tide whooshed the water right up over the wharf.
The early morning black clouds were rapidly crowding together, looming over the sleepy town.

Very nice shot! I love the little pinkish and brownish tones in the clouds.

My SWF post is up here. Hope you can pass by if you have time. Thanks.

Beautiful photo!

I think that is a striking shot. It has a sinister feel. Should be the opening scene of a spy thriller, I think.

That is a strikingly good photo, Rob!! The basic monochrome tone with those hints of colour make it an excellent composition. Bravo!

I love this photo. Very moody the way the soft colors play off the stark black-and-white areas. Nice. Happy Skywatching~

Very dramatic and beautiful photo!

You are so right, not at all how I remember Trieste. The sea is ominous and moody but just right for All Hallows.

There is such a heavy mood of loneness in this shot! But the touch of colour creates a sense of mysterious beauty! Really lovely!
