SKY WATCH FRIDAY - A piece of sky


For other participants in Dot’s concept, go to Sky Watch HQ.





'A Roman Cumbrian Sky'



this is a piece of sky 



the sky above Hadrians Wall


but ...


are you  thinking 



that something


 is not quite right?

Well you would be right ...

This is a painted sky 

which hangs over

 the Hadrians wall exhibit

 in the Museum where I work!

  2. This is gorgeous! I sat on a piece of Hadrian's wall back in '97. I should check out the sky in that photo. Gotta get choosing something for SWF...

  3. I thought at first you'd masked off the sky and applied a Photoshop filter to it to get that effect. (Apparently this is quite a good painting!)

    But be the sky faux or real, the photo is still smashing!

  16. Clever post. Thanks for sharing! A friend of mine posted a photo recently in another blog along the theme of "fake." Of course the flowers were obviously silk, but what she had done was shoot a reflection of the flowers. I love this painting. It is sooo realistic. Happy Skywatching!

  17. Ah, that explains the not quite right color, but it's a good way to post a pic without geting your feet wet.
