Sunday Selections #491




Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.

Huge thanks to Cie who gave me this wonderful Sunday Selections image.
  
The meme was then continued by River at Drifting through life.  Sadly she has now stepped aside (though she will join us some weeks), and I have accepted the mantle.
 
The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent.  Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to me. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen. 
 
I usually run with a theme.  This week I am going to revert to type again.  Skyscapes.  


Starting with a jet trail at sunset.



 If you embiggen you may see a flock of birds wending their way home.

And then to photos from just before to just after a single soft dawn.










In other news, our PC has been in the hands of two separate computer boffins this week.  It is, at the moment, sort of functional but we have been told that it is old, tired and on its last wobbly legs (like its owners).

Essentially we need a new one.  Himself has reluctantly agreed but wants to have one built to meet his specifications.  If I apparently disappear it will almost certainly be 'puter related.  My phone is also old and tired and I refuse to even attempt to post using that medium.  I will try and schedule Words for Wednesday to appear on the appropriate day.  

I am sooooo not looking forward to transferring things like photos/documents/contact lists/purchased programs to the new and improved model.

Stay well, stay safe.

  2. Oh, look! I'm early!
    Many people are counting on you to persevere through your computer tribulations. I know you can kick ass... or at least muddle your way to victory. *says the cheering section not close enough to help*
    Your two trees on the top of the hill look like they've declared themselves king and queen of all they survey. Or maybe my imagination has taken flight. Again. ;)
    Hugs and stay safe. Give Jazz a scritch for me.

      The twin trees are close to home and often feature in my skyscapes.
      Jazz graciously accepts his scritch this morning but suggests that you don't get complacent.

    2. I am NEVER complacent when it comes to Jazz and his mercurial acceptance of his due homage. ;)

    3. River Fairchild: Wise decision. When Jazz asks to go out in a little while (when it is light) he is going to be very unhappy about the weather. His mood is going to reflect that unhappiness.

  3. Good luck on your new computer, which will be a work in progress that you will quickly be so thankful for! Your sky photos are always so enchanting, the billowing cloud formations and the things we can see in them, amazing skies. Stay safe, watch those skies and take good care of you.

  4. Dear EC
    Good luck with the computer. We had to get a new one as our previous one was not being supported by Microsoft any more (rude). Luckily, we had a very helpful IT chap from work who helped us.
    Those skies are so beautiful.
    Best wishes and I hope you have a good week.

  8. When we look at skies, my mother and I have a joke that we wish we were painters. My mom was corrected by her aunt who was only about 5 years older than her that an artist painted skies. Painters painted houses. Mom was 16. The aunts also asked my mother to not tell everybody about driving a tractor. My mother loved driving a tractor. No one knew they were all a bunch is hillbillies, right?

    With a new puter, you will be as good as new for awhile. I would get a secondary drive to store my photos and files on. My original computers all seemed to work better than the new fangled ones. Or at least they did for me. I wish you better luck than I my friend. I go through a laptop a year.

    1. Ann Bennett: I wonder whether that aunt continued her bossy ways. Driving a tractor sounds like a useful skill to me - something to be proud of. And yes, there are painters and there are artists (and sometimes both of them paint skyscapes.
      We have been good about storing photos on a back-up drive. Documents less so. A lesson which I hope is not tooo painful.

  12. Beautiful photos of the sky and I'm always delighted at the perfect combination of colors of the sky shots. Nature never makes a mistake.

    Good luck with the transfer of data to your new computer. I never transfered data from one computer to another and had my son in law do it for me but since then, I no longer can access my old email and when I when I want to share from an email, I have to do it manually. Very annoying. My old email was one we use for the company and I can no longer access e-statements for the company and I don't know how to fix it.

    Enjoy the weekend.

The evening at twilight when the sky turns a lovely grayish purple, or the early morning sky with the same grayed purple and a few blush streaks here and there.

  23. I hate that computer failure horror, reentering passwords, file transfer, getting to know the new one. Once the last one failed here, someone sent me a refurbished one off Amazon. Cost $100 is all and has now been working I think three years of so. I'd never get a new one again, not worth how much they cost.

  24. I LOve all your skyscapes Sue and really could not pick a favourite. AH! Computers! I needed a new laptop and I have a "computer man" and he asked me my requirements, said he was going in the direction of a computer shop that very day, did I want him to look for one and phone me, I said Great, he did so, brought a new one home, I left him my old one and he transferred everything over. Hey presto! No hassle and that is the way I like it. Ok you will pay a bit more for his service but it was really worth it and I was only without my laptop for a couple of days and in that time was leant another one. Perhaps you should think along those lines and take the hassle out of your life. yes knee now nearly back to normal but not taking any chances. Stay safe and have a good week ahead.

  25. I hung onto my old one as long as I could. It was running windows XP. When I got a new one I thought, 'spend a little money and make this one last as long as I can'. I jumped to windows 10 with an i7 processor, 16 gig of ram, and a 1TB hard drive. That was 4 years ago! It seems like last year but it is still hanging in there. It should make it to 10 years or more also.

  30. Lovely silhouettes... I keep all my music and photos on plug in portable drives, with many gigs of space. And they are backed up. When I got my present desktop (which I love) it only took a few hours to load programs. My old laptop works OK, but is slower than frozen molasses. I use it primarily to listen to music through an appropriate DAC into my sound system. These things are not built to last forever. Keep your files separate.

    1. Lady Fi: A new computer was most definitely needed. We have it - and I am wrestling with the new one. Hopefully I will be back up to speed soon.

  63. My deepest sympathy for your computers passing. I fight with my laptop all the time now because of all the new stuff they want me to learn to use. I am on an older computer that serves me well so far, a desktop, but I refuse to change over to the new Microsoft program. One day I might. I love your sky shots, the beautiful colors and feelings they give me. Serene is the word.

    1. Glenda Beall: We stayed with our older computer and the older operating system for longer than we should have I fear. And I do understand the 'fighting' with technology issue.

  65. The skyscapes are beautiful. I love all the different clouds and colors. Lovely!

    Sorry to hear about your computer. Mine is also on it's last leg. I recently started the transfer of pictures etc.- but it is all my saved passwords I will probably miss the most when it finally goes. :( Good luck and I hope you love your new computer and it is way better than you think it will be.

    1. DMS ~Jess: Thank you. Saved passwords/bookmarks did cause problems. And at the moment I cannot send emails. I hope that soon I will be (more or less) on top of the technology.

  68. What beautiful sky photos! And good luck with your computer changeover, too. That's always a stressful and irritating transition, but I hope it'll all feel worthwhile when you get your speedy new machine!

    1. Diane Henders: Thank you. It was stressful and irritating and I have had to learn quite a lot of new ways to do familiar tasks. In the fullness of time I am sure I WILL enjoy the new PCs attributes. Not yet though.
