The sky!



God and Nature first made us what we are, and then out of our own created genius we make ourselves what we want to be. Together we can face any challenges as deep as the river and as high as the sky. When you realize how perfect everything is, we just tilt our head back and laugh at the sky.

  1. 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

  2. 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.
