Skywatch Friday





From top to bottom: I took these photos traveling west on Northern Blvd as I stopped at red lights. I thought the cloud formations were extraordinary. There was about 10 minutes between the first photo and the last.

Go to Tom's blog, Welcome to Wigger's World, for more Skywatch participants.

It also looks like the clouds were moving towards you or you towards them. That big cloud just keeps getting bigger. Nice photographs.

Whenever my son stares at the clouds above when the car's moving he'll always say "The clouds are following us!!".
While looking at your clouds they gave me the same feel :)

p/s: Glad you like the Ruby Tuesday button :)

We all seem to share a common habit, Mary - we never leave home without our cameras! I love broody storm clouds! they're so much like snowflakes; always unique and fleeting.

Suzie said...

Those are some amazing clouds

Looks like they came fast. I was thinking about Skywatch Friday the other day when storm was coming in. Just did not have a camera with me :o(
Have a great weekend, teach!

Jim said...

Hey Mary, I took a picture out the car window of a storm approaching last night. It was dark and raining down our lake about a quarter mile. We were on our way in to town and did manage to stay ahead of the little storm.

Now to business, I am giving you an award ~~ "5 blogs that make my day." Thank you very much Mary, for doing that.

You can copy the logo for you side bar or where ever from my blog. About the only directions are that you are to pass it along to five others who make your day.

Again, thank you very much for making my day!

Amazing to see the sky change so from light to light. Northern Blvd.! That has a familiar ring for an ex-NYer.
