Skywatch Friday



Photobucket

This series of photos was taken as I was driving west on my way home several days ago. Don't worry I didn't take them while driving, I pulled over to take them. :)

There are only a few seconds between each shot. In the last shot I now see black specks which I suppose are birds. I didn't see those specks when I took the picture. I don't think it's dirt on my lens. Ha!

Don't forget to visit The Skywatch Team - Tom, IMAC, Sandy, Klaus or Ivar, and all the other participants in Skywatch.

What a blessing it would be if we could open and shut our ears as easily as we open and shut our eyes!

Mary, I love the clouds when you can see the range from dark to light -- especially when scattered against a blue sky.

great shots!

Jan said...

Great series. Yes, I've learned that lesson, with clouds, take 'em when you see them, things change fast!!

where are you that it is Friday already? I had to check the date on the calender and my computer! Love the pic's. The third one looks like two people (upside down) in a dancing embrace with wind blown clothing. (to me anyway)

Beautiful skies. Your sepia tones project looks interesting too. Once I can stop obsessing about politics, I'll probably join in.

Gattina said...

Now I am disappointed, I thought you took the pictures while driving, lol ! But nevertheless they are beautiful !

Dear teach Mary,
I love you sky series.
I always seem to find figures in the clouds. Makes me feel young again, lying in the grass beside my dad in our garden, finding pictures in the slow moving, but ever changing clouds.
Oh, yes, I can clearly see a big bird down in picture #3.

I’m relieved to know you pull over to take the photos rather than snapping them as you drive. These are amazing studies in light & dark! Thanks for sharing. My Sky Watch is at Sacred Ruminations with a bit of Haiku as usual.
Hugs and blessings,

Somehow I missed you yesterday - but your pictures are still there to see. Lovely skies - ours are black today and blowing a gale. Back to outage time already this season.
