Skywatch Friday



Photobucket

The cloud formation on the left intrigued me on this day I was waiting to make a left turn on my way to school. I whipped out my trusy camera and snapped a coupla shots for Skywatch Friday. The second shot looks exactly like this first one so I didn't post it.

This is a shot of a condo complex in Main St. Flushing. See the moon in the upper left of the shot?

Happy Skywatch Friday!

I always chuckle when I read that someone was doing something ordinary when a gorgeous photo op appears and out comes the camera. ;-)

Happy Sky Watch!

Well done, Mary. See - this is why we all need to keep a camera handy when we're out and about.

Great capture skywatch!!!! I am so happy to be part of this fun. I find myself excited visiting other sky photos all over the world. Happy weekend! Hope you can visit my SWF entry too...

Amazing what you see when you least expect it...I usually have my camera handy, too. :D

Great cloud formation Mary and I also love the one with the moon.

Great spur of the moment pic on the first one! Quite incredible! And love how the moon appears by day in the 2nd!

The first one is just exploding with clouds. I like it. It's always interesting to see the moon in the light of day...
Have a good weekend Mary!

The building looks to me like it has Aztec or Mayan influence.

I'm trying to work on aiming the camera without looking, for times like this. I'm not so good at it yet. :-)

Carletta said...

Those are some clouds - beautiful!
Love the composition in the second one.
Have a great weekend Mary!

The sky in the first shot looks like rain is on it's way.

The Texican said...

I couldn't make out the image in the first cloud, but I did get that you mooned us in the second one. Pappy

That first one looks like that cloud wants to drop down on top of the cars... kind of spooky in a way... crazy cloud...
the moon shot is awesome!
Nice post!

Have a great weekend!

That cloud is so powerful. Love both but it's the dramatci cloud swalllowing the sky that great me.


Obama won the last debate hands down.

Arija said...

Nice shots both but the moon and sunlit buildings are exceptional.

napaboaniya said...

Nice shots from the car, the moon is still up! Did you leave home real early for school?

p/s: The huge star is a decorative item on top of a tower. The place houses lots of eateries and fun shops at the beach. Remember my kangaroo hopping? The same place.

Happy Weekend Mary!! :)

The first picture has really a tormented sky ! Beautiful !
Quite strange to see the moon when the sky is blue !

vincibene said...

Gorgeous! The first one is very impressive!

Bond said...

Always an interesting sky shot....

storyteller said...

Oh my! I don’t envy your drive. I see YOUR skies are as variable as mine lately. The weather here can’t seem to make up its mind. I’ve published on both blogs this morning – SkyWatch/Haiku Friday at Sacred Ruminations and another HF post (in which I ‘reflect’ upon my upcoming Blogoversary) at Small Reflections containing a ‘Fall Thank You’ for all … just because.
Hugs and blessings,

Mary,
You make New York look so familiar and beautiful!

John said...

Great sky captures!

WillThink4Wine said...

Not doing SKF this week, Mary, but you snapped off a coupla good ones! When I read Flushing I immediately thought of The Nanny! hahaha! Did you ever watch her? Don't tell anybody, but I did. I'm so ashamed.

Enigma said...

Teach, VERY nice! I've got a moon in the upper left of my SW contribution also! Great minds think alike....

Jim said...

Hi Mary, you did good! I like the second on the best, just a nice daytime sky with the moon showing us where it likes to be.
