  1. Wow! Crazy sky. What caused it to happen?
    We had a crazy sky like that a few years ago, but it was just after dawn, and I slept through it. I saw it on the news later.
    Fab shots Marina, and the perfect music to go with it!

    • Warm not war! Perfect!!! Warm and enveloping is a beautiful way of describing it. It wasn’t actually warm that day, slightly chilly. Odd morning! Thank you, my dearest Mary Jo! 🤗❤

  2. That was a wonderful ode to the cuttlefish by Hiromi. It looks like the sky painter made it to your neck of the woods and splashed about some sepia to give you a beautiful awakening. I used to use sepia and selenium and coffee and all kinds of interesting elements to tone prints back in the day.

    • Oh… me too!!! Back at college. I loved sepia tinted photographs.
      Sky painter has decided to grace us too with his presence! At last winter is here and painter favors this season! 😉
      Thanks, my friend. 🙏
