Sky Watch


Tom at Welcome to Wiggers World is hosting Sky Watch today. Tom will be surprised to see that I was going to label my photo above "X marks the spot." Do you see the "X" over to the left? I didn't see it when I took the photo (through my moon roof) just when I looked at it afterwards.

This photo was taken about 10 minutes later. It's the only water tower within miles of me. Doesn't the sky look completely different?

I see the "X" and wonder how that happened. It is amazing how fast the clouds cleared out and left a nice blue sky.

imac said...

Nice fluffy sky.


my double reflection is now up please feel free to visit-thanks.

Wow I do see the X. That's a great capture. Have a wonderful rest of the week Maryt!

quinttarantino said...

Not only I see the X but also a fluffy amount of clouds!

Daniel J Santos said...

great images.

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

Yep, I see the X as well... that's pretty neat. I'm going to have to start paying attention to the clouds I think, I never really look for that... I wonder how many trees I'm going to "smack" into now looking for "X's" ... LOL
Great post!

Carletta said...

Love both shots! How about that little O in the right corner to go with the X :)

very interesting picture of the sky

Diane Vogel Ferri said...

When we were children it was so easy to find images in the clouds - maybe we just stop looking.

Mrs. Darcy said...

I do see the X!
Great shot :)!

Pretty pictures. Congratulations

Carole said...

The X is so prominent and so unusual! Good catch.

Rose said...

I hate to admit it but I don't think I would have noticed the 'x' if you had not mentioned it...I like those fluffy clouds.

John said...

I can see the X, great capture.

The sky has its moods! I do see the X, Mary. Yours is like an inversion of Tom's!

archiearchive said...

The clouds are so nice - I love that sort of formation. My first thought the "X" was an aircraft shadow and that the shot was from above :)

Me & my puppies said...

It is amazing how quickly the sky can change.

Debbie in NC said...

Debbie in NC said...

Oh Mary...you have me laughing! I've laughed so hard at your comment, my toilet paper hat fell off!

My son (21) read that post and all he could say was "What happened to Woman B"?

Thank you so much for the giggle!!

Lois Grebowski said...

Julia Smith said...

That's a heavy mackerel sky. If I were there I'd be having a whopper of a migraine. Wait - I AM having a whopper of a migraine. Are you on the eastern seaboard?

Mary - I've finally posted my Make a Wish Meme on my blog. Only two months after you tagged me. How's that for quick learning (the graphics thing threw me but now I can do it!)

Lilli & Nevada said...

Great capture and love the water tower

Your EG Tour Guide said...

The top photo looks a lot like cotton batting. And, yes, the sky sure did change in just ten minutes!

shubd said...

Another 'X' ... seems there is a lot of treasure to be found !! :)

The clouds look lovely ..and remind me of a carpet pile though :P

Mo said...

X marks the spot...
that pic kinda looks like my thighs... all cottage-cheesey!
Maybe X marks the spot where they should stick the lipo tube!
:)
Okay, clearly the coffee is kickin' in this morning, teach!
Cheers,
