Skywatch Friday-ish

It's Skywatch Friday (Thursday, actually) again. Between endlessly gray skies and computer problems, I haven't participated for a few weeks. Don't have much to share despite that. Please check out all the other sky-watchers at the link above and you'll see lots of glorious sunsets and sunrises and clouds and other wonderful sky scenes. We haven't had much sun this month, but we did have a few days when the sky was something other than gray.



This is what the sky has been like most of the time. I posted a bunch of snow photos a couple of days ago and the sky is so gray that some thought the pictures were black and white. I have to admit that the world feels very monochrome these days and the rare blue skies are especially nurturing to the spirit.

I like them all but the sixth one with the snow covered tree branches is my favorite!
I smiled at how much your first two look like my two. :)

Dewdrop said...

Love your old fashioned icicles! Great snowy shots. I hope you get the pleasure of seeing mammatus. They are amazing, truly glorious.

Mojo said...

I'm with Carletta... love #6 ... and #5. Though there's not a slack one in the bunch anywhere!

Bradley Myers said...

Great sky watch, and just the way I want to see snow in some one elses photos, LOL.

Beautiful array of trees and ;skies. Love the snowy branches too - like snow, underlined!

Babooshka said...

The barest branches are the ones that jump out. Cool crisp images.

The world here has looked almost B&W too, which can sometimes be very beautiful. I Love the look of bare, graceful branches against the sky.

Jim said...

Your skies are very pretty. You could have saved a couple for next week, but thanks that we can see them now.
Happy SkyWatching, it's been a while. I've been out too, since Dec 5th. Today my sky is one from Florida instead of Texas.

Winter skies offer such beauty - wonderful job of framing it to share. LOVE the icecicles in the last photo.

Raven,
You had plenty of good work to share! Thanks.

Wren said...

I enlarged the last photo, and got a great view of the icicles on the eaves. Thanks for skywatching with us.

Tarolino said...

Pictures two, five and six are all gorgeous. So glad you had a chance to participate this week.

Dianne said...

these are all fantastic - for some reason I'm drawn back to the second one most of all

Arija said...

Not much to share? Ha, who are you kidding? Great series, I love all that snow clinging to trees and covering things.

Pagan Sphinx said...

You always take lovely photos. These are so nicely framed. You have a good eye for composition. :-)

April said...

I love the clouds in your photos, and the third one with the little building looks like a Christmas card.

John said...

what a beautiful series!

How LOVELY is this winter series of photos today once again. The first was my favorite until I saw the third and fourth and now I just can't choose.
Hugs and blessings,

Reader Wil said...

How important are trees and branches in photos, I like all your photos and the bottom one is my favourite.

Janie said...

Nice pictures of sky and snow. You have a good eye.

Carver said...

I love your winter shots. I think there is something so peaceful about bare branches against the sky. All of these are lovely shots.

Hello Raven!
I really enjoyed all your skywatch photos this week. Living in Southern California right now makes me appreciate the winter that parts of our country enjoy. There's is such beauty to snow on branches that I appreciate. I hope you have a peaceful weekend!

RuneE said...

I fell for the one without the sky, but nearly B6W with snow on the branches.

Old Wom Tigley said...

That's some fine view from your 'Nest' Raven.... each one as good as the one before...
Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Great series here! The thing I love about your lane are all the deciduous trees. Just an ever changing sky, isn't it?
