Skywatch Friday

Please scroll down for the Poem of the Week

This is my 5th time participating in Skywatch Friday after taking a week off last week because I didn't think I could do justice to both Project Black and Skywatch at the same time. That means I'm making up for lost skies this week, so to speak. Drop by and check out hundreds of links to awesome, varied and beautiful sky scenes from around the world.

Sky Watch Friday is hosted by Tom at Welcome to Wigger's World and I hope you'll make it a point to visit his wonderful site as well. He takes awesome photos.

Boy, there's some intensity in those skies!

Carletta said...

Such varied skies Raven!
You have sunny happy views and some awesome cloudy skies as well.
I think you saved the best for last - it is my very favorite. It's like a fluffy cone of cotton candy coming up behind the trees!

Great series of shots. My favorites are the birds (love those!), then photos 3 and 4, and best of all that cloudy orangey greyish pinkish reddish thing under the birds. Wow.

Love the pinky-lilac skies in one of those photos. We get that sort of sunset here in Florida quite a bit, and I never get tired of it.

You certainly had some wonderful skies since your last SKF, Raven! I love the puffed up bird!

You were wondering how my photo was taken... I took it last October at an Air Show at Moody AFB, here in Valdosta. I was standing on the flight line and it's just a trick of perpective. It helped that I'm quite tall! I really like how it came out.

babooshka said...

So many, how to choose. Always a sucker for the birds, faubulous catches.

Whitney said...

Wow! You have so many great photos and I love them all! It is so cool to see the different "moods" of the sky!
