Sky Watch Friday - Don't just look to the sky

Just after sunrise at Cape St Francis last Sunday we took a stroll out to Shark Point


It is just as well that we did not focus only on the sky, otherwise we may have missed this Cape Clawless Otter, fishing off the shoreline. What a delight to come across this shy animal.

The otter's swimming towards you for a photo op! =)

I have two Sky Watch pictures this week (completely different from one another) and are posted in these blogs:
Jenn Was Here and Shutter Happy Moments. Please hop on any of them if you have some time. Happy weekends!

You definitely must at all times look up, down, left, right, and behind you and then do it again in case you have missed something.

Slows things down but it's worth it.

That is one lovely otter! He's got a beautiful sky as well as the water to enjoy!

I do love the softness of grey clouds!

But that dear little face of the otter is simply adorable! Great capture!

What a great photo! And how nice to find another genuinely South African blog with photos of high quality! I had begun to think blogland was only populated by North Americans with an odd Australian thrown in here and there. I was born in the Eastern Cape, grew up in Cape Town and live in Pretoria. Miss that sea! Regards Eleanor at Thatchwick

I like both these: the otter is a delight and I am sure that I would be charmed by him. However, the first image is so evocative. The blasted sand dune at the front already forms how I will approach that frozen sky behind.

Lovely image. Thank you.
