Skywatch Friday

It's Skywatch Friday (Thursday, actually) again. Not my usual gazillion photos this week, just 5... There are gazillions out there, though. Just check out all the other skywatchers at the link above and you'll see lots of glorious sunsets and sunrises and clouds and other wonderful sky scenes. The first people to visit have commented on the shots of the moon... that is actually the sun. That's how gloomy it has been around here this week. Looks pretty, though, doesn't it?





I know they look like moon shots, but these last two shots are the sun.

Happy Skywatch Thurdsay/Friday!

Dear Raven,
some good pix you've got.
My favorites are the icicle and the moon peeking out between the clouds and branches.
You've caught the moments!

The last shot was very well captured. But of course, all your pictures are great.


My SWF entries are posted here and here. Hope you can stop by, too. Happy weekends!

Great icicle shots, Raven. I believe my favorite, however, is the shot of the moon in that patch of blue, framed by the winter branches. So wistful and lovely.

You have another award over at my place...

All I can say is, "Oh, yeah!" Well done, Raven.

Gorgeous!
I like the lone icicle again; but that last shot is awesome!
That needs to hang on your wall!
Love it!!!!

I like the first three pictures best though all were very nice. I like the sky framed against icicles even though I don't like icicles.

This is like walking into Narnia, cool beauty.

SnoopMurph said...

Oooh, that last one is eerie-and might inspire a good, spooky story! Excellent!

quilly said...

I like looking at your icicles. I especially like that they are not MY icicles!

Natural Moments said...

I love icicles. We are about to have our first cold snap with a chance of snow here in Western Washington.

Happy Holidays.....
