Sky High IV





Here are two pics that I thought looked worthy enough to post!! :D
I took them from my Nokia 6610.

I took the latest two pics the day before yesterday. Afterwards I was just standing on the balcony and gazing at the sky, and that triggered a memory of my childhood. When I was a kid I would just go up on to the terrace of our home in Hyderabad in the evenings and sit there and just gaze at the sky changing colours gradually until the sun had set or my mother called for me to come down! I just loved watching the evening sky, everything was so peaceful at that time; birds would be flying back to wherever they came from, one could see the eagles circling lazily in the sky lower and lower.
There's a mosque just opposite our home, and at that hour I would hear the aazaam calling out for the faithful to come for prayer. The melody of this would send shivers down my spine! It was a magical time for sure!
Someone had asked me why I post so many pictures of the sky on my blog, and at that time I'd said that I just like to, not realizing the deeper meaning behind me going crazy clicking away at the sky. Well, here it is then, it just takes me back to my childhood and more precisely to Hyderabad. :)

but what is this obsession with the sunset skies?
do you have some sort of special time during which you are allowed to use cam?

the evening slipping into its night gown and the sun retiring, the twilight offers such a wonderful backdrop for retro mood.

Sometimes it looks serene and lightens up fond memories n sometimes it just underlines the feeling of loneliness.

You really got passion for the skiies n tall trees n dwindling Sun :)
nice pics ..
