Skywatch Friday

Photobucket

I've been following Dew Drop's lessons on clouds at Skywatch Friday. This looked like a shelf cloud over the New York City skyline which I took from the passenger seat on the go down the Van Wyck Expressway. Here's another:

Fantastic. I wanted to see more photos of the shelf cloud. It looks like it can take a few people for a ride.
How wonderful it would be if we could ride on clouds drifting away in the sky?
Happy Skywatch.
Have a great weekend.

My sky hangout is here

Wow … these are DRAMATIC skies for sure! Love the new holiday header! Makes me think I could get busy and change mine … almost. Life’s just too busy methinks … seriously! That said … I did include ‘holiday’ graphics in today’s post at Small Reflections, and I’ve shared a ‘foggy’ Sky Watch/Haiku Friday post at Sacred Ruminations this morning.
Hugs and blessings,

Debbie said...
