Skywatch Friday: I Have No Other Star

Host unlimited photos at slide.com for FREE!
I love the handful of the earth you are.
Because of its meadows, vast as a planet,
I have no other star. You are my replica
of the multiplying universe.
(Pablo Neruda)

(Thanks to Rich for putting me on to Neruda recently.)

    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

    That is right -- tomorrow people blow up their money.

    What a fireworks.

    I think this is going to be the best Sky Watch Friday yet. The things I have seen are very encouraging and the photography is spot on.

    I really admire your photography skills and your critical eye for composition, lighting and texture.
