SKYWATCH FRIDAY – Coyote Steals the Sun (Lake Erie)



When I saw this sunset, it looked to me like arms and odd little paws holding onto the sun, and that made me think of the Zuni tale. I think Coyote’s face and body are there, too, but perhaps take a little more imagination…

I see something wrapping itself around the light, but it doesn't look like a coyote. I do see a huge arrow pointing at it. Your photo is beautiful. Isn't fun to imagine how those legends began?

I'm bad at finding pictures in clouds, but the clouds and color here are fantastic!

Art in the sky, fantastic. I love it.

Perfect photo for the story. One would think a trickster like Coyote could have done better at stealing light than he did. Maybe I wouldn't be buying a winter coat if he had!

Hi! Yes I can see the paws holding up the sun. The higher clouds appear to be bird feathers. Very beautiful. Thank you. Lisa

That's an awesome photo of the sun setting over Lake Erie. I don't think Lake Erie has EVER looked so good. ;-) Happy Sky Watch!

I just love the colors and clouds in this photo. I love the angle of the clouds in the sky. How creative to link it to that tale. I will have to go read it now! This photo is breath taking.

beautiful colors as texture - I see the paws holding the sun too. Nicely captured.

I did see the underside of coyote and its furry chin stretching out across the sky. Lots of wispy white to tantalize a person's imagination in your lovely photo.

The coyote story hasn't filtered dow to Australia, nothing better though than an old folktale to hold up such a pretty sky.

Dewdrop said...

I wasn't able to see that, but I am able to see what an amazing sunset you experienced and thankfully shared. Blue and yellow radiating, wonderful wisped cirrus clouds... the tranquil sea. Wow!

Beautiful colors in that sky, with or without the coyote arms. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
