The Weekend Starts Here

Thanks to Sandra for this beautiful shot, taken from her back deck in Grange on the north side of Brisbane. Around this time of year the nights are balmy with minimums rarely getting below about 20 degrees celcius (68f). Sound effects to go with this picture: cicadas, crickets and frogs and the hiss of an ice cold beer opening. Smell effects: jasmine laced with BBQ. Are you there yet?

Drift from sky to sky, visit Skywatch Friday.

Cara,
Wonerful shot Sandra! But it wouldn't be as good without the wonderful sound and smell effects.
I miss summer! It's still stormy, rainy, snowy and chilly here! Thanks for sharing your summer.

Just like this for me on most evenings. Yet you know no two sunsets are ever quite the same.

I can never see too many.

An ice cold beer and BBQ is good under any sky mate, this one is a big bonus though. Frog legs as well?
