Ribbon in the Sky

Ribbon in the Sky

 Host: Skyley

Does this look like a ribbon in the sky or a 7 layered cake?! 

Camera: Nikon D200
Location: My View

I took this photo around 5:00 a.m. and I'm learning about dusk and dawn lighting. A friend mentioned that one should focus on the ground before aiming up at the sky and the same with taking pictures at the beach, mostly water shots.

So, I wanted to ask, why? Could someone explain the reason behind this... thank you! 

I love the color orange. Feast your eyes with gorgeous photos from Luna Miranda

I also love Stevie Wonder! Do you have a favorite song of his? There's too many to choose from... so talented and a great artist!

Ribbon In The Sky lyrics
Songwriters: Stevie Wonder

Oh, so long before this night I prayed
That a star would guide you my way
To share with me this special day

Well, ribbon's in the sky for our love

If allowed, may I touch your hand
And if pleased may I once again?
So that you too will understand

There's a ribbon in the sky for our love

Do do
Do do do do do
Hmm hmm

This is not a coincidence
And far more than a lucky chance
But what it is that was always meant

Is our ribbon in the sky for our love, love

We can't lose with God on our side
We'll find strength in each tear we cry
From now on it will be you and I

And our ribbon in the sky
Ribbon in the sky
A ribbon in the sky for our love

Do do
Do do do do do
Hmm hmm

There's a ribbon in the sky for our love

  1. I love that photo, it accompanies the Stevie Wonder song very well, which I also love!
    Really great 56 too! And so very true!

  2. Love in every room. What a nice feeling. I am a new follower.

  3. Great snippets. Sounds like a great house to be at. Here are my Friday Memes: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2012/01/friday-memes.html

  4. Very very wise words! And your photo looks like cake to me! Lovely shot!

  5. I don't know why you would want to focus on the ground... doesn't make sense to me. Intriguing shot. Almost looks like two images spliced together, and like the top of the ribbon is solid ground! Very cool.

  6. Gorgeous skyscape! And the colors!

    "You and I" by Stevie Wonder I love.
