Skywatch Friday - Sunset in the Kampung

Well, there is not a great deal of sky showing, but what is showing is nice...and I think it compliments the rest of the photo well....

I love this photo! And the sky is gorgeous, what you can see of it. You have to keep looking at this picture because you keep seeing more in it each time.

SandyCarlson said...

Ah, but the sky is present and is very beautiful!

Louise said...

What an artist you are. The sky (and the rest) is spectacular.

Jump Back! said...

That's some neighborhood blending in with the sky...would love to see more above the building.

Sherry said...

Wow, what a striking photograph. Stunning work.

Fantastic busy photo.

Love it! One would think from first glance that the people should be running in panic from the fire, but it's just the sky! Do you suppose they get so used to it that it's ignored? Great Sky Watch.

Amazing photo and the sky blends in so well with the other colour attractions. What a surprise this was when expecting a blue sky. GREAT picture!

What you can see of the sky though is aglow. This is a most engrossing picture of village life. So much chaos to look at. Quite engrossing.

Wow, Scotty - red sky rising! That's pretty cool. Though I was so occupied with studying the rest of the image, that I didn't notice it right away!
Good work!
Cheers, Klaus

WOW! Amazing photo across the board. That sky is so dramatic that it looks unreal and the rest of the photo is so rich in color and detail... and so ... well... it would take me to long to try ad put words to it, so I'll quit with another 'Wow'.

I almost feel like I'm there - the sky is gorgeous; but the rest of the photo is a wonderful composition of subject and color!

Rose said...

This is a very interesting photo...can look at it a long time and not see everything.

Wren said...

Quality, not quantity, of sky. Great photo!

babooshka said...

Wow! So much going on and topped off with that sumptious sky.

fishing guy said...

Scotty: Did you color that Sky? It looks so unreal with all the red.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Wow that sky is on fire and what an interesting photo this is.

JennWasHere said...

Wow, your picture is so vivid! I am sure you use a very high end camera for that. Brilliant!

Hope you can hop by my SWF post HERE. Happy weekends!

Scotty Graham said...

Fishing guy....believe it or not, that is the real sky...it is either the pollution in Jakarta or the volcanos (jakarta is pretty near Krakatoa) that gives our sunsets amazing reds...that is WHEN you can see the sun. Most days in Jakarta the sky is white, but on clear days, we can get some amazing sunsets.

Lori said...

Oh wow...is that sky for real?? This is such an interesting photograph with so many different things going on. I'd love to see it larger to really study all of the details.

Absolutely stunning!

chrome3d said...

There is so much stuff going on in here. Their life looks so rich without being rich.

Anita said...

This is so... clear, and there are so many things going on! What a beautiful shot of life...

Fish Whisperer said...

Very cool Sky watch photo and as for the rest of your work, might I say, WOW!! Great photos, I will need a little time to check them and all of your site as I only have dial up but I will. In the mean time I have added you to my blog roll on my photo blog, just so I can check back regularly. Great work again.
Cheers
ps. The fishing in Fiji is out of this world just like the diving.

Jules said...

Fire in the Sky it surely is!! Took me 30 mins to download your page and 10 minutes on amd off trying to open your comments page - it was worth it though.

i have been to many of the places you have been - including Africa and Santorini and of course Nth PNG so your photos mean a lot to me.
