Opening game skies

Last week Wednesday night I went to the opening game of the South Africa 2009 Pro20 cricket series with Hoender (Hoender is my brother and is Afrikaans for chicken. Since primary school his nickname was Hoender because he ran slightly funny. Didn’t stop him from playing first team rugby and cricket as well as being a provincial athlete).

As the sun went down the sky over the historic St Georges Park looked beautiful and I decided to get a couple of pics for Skywatch.

On Monday we had the ultimate Skywatch event which I posted about on Monday evening. We had a partial Solar Eclipse which can be seen here.

For more awesome Skywatch photos from bloggers all over the world, why not make your way over here and have a peek.

    Hehe, I love funny nicknames! My uncle’s nickname is Hansbeer – still can’t get behind the reason for that particular name, but I was about 15 before I realised it was not his REAL name, LOL. Beautiful colours in that sky and I love the clouds!
