Skywatch Friday



Photobucket

Photobucket

On the way home from a day with my nephew. Both shots are through the front windshield of the car. I was in the passenger seat.

I did not notice the moon on the right in the second shot until I looked at the photos on my computer.

Happy Skywatch Friday! Other Skywatch participants are here

The moon I didn't see until I read your post about it. It is still a set of nice photographs.

I missed a great sky tonight on the way home, there was a thunderstorm brewing with huge billowing cumulus clouds above a dark and ominous lower sky. It was quite spectacular and dont you know, I didnt have a camera with me, rats! Yours are great :-)

LOL! I'm going to be putting up TWO skywatch photos too -- in a few hours! I don't want to put it up TOO early because it also has my Day 6 Dragon Hunt on it! These are lovely - and I LOVE that one with the sun and the moon in the same shot! That's cool!

Great shots from inside of the car! Well, now we can get ourselves entertained when stuck in traffic! Just look up to the skies and be mesmerized by it!

Wonderful to get both sun and moon! I'm glad you weren't driving at taking photos at the same time. How you made a highway into two interesting photos!

Mary,
These are amazing--just wonderful. The closing punctuation on the day with your nephew. Perfect.

Jim said...

Hi Mary, you have found a pretty sky. I saw your moon, it has been lovely lately.

juliana said...

beautiful looking sky!

i thought the round object in the second pic was the moon, too, but then realised the almost full moon and the sun are NEVER in the same part of the sky so it must be something else... lens flair or even UFO? ;)

Kahshe Cottager said...

I had to look a second time to see the moon! You got a two for one in that photo!! Sometimes you can get the best shots out the car windows can't you?

My Sky Watch Photos are posted Here and Here
