Sky Watch Friday!



Sky Watch is hosted each week by Klaus, Sandy, Ivar, Wren, Fishing Guy and Louise. It's a fun way to share the beauty of the skies above you with people all over the world. Click here to sign up and show us what you see when you lift your eyes!



From week to week, day to day, evening to evening the skies over Seattle change as if they are always trying to out do themselves in colors, in clouds, in breathtaking beauty. Here are a few examples. We're blessed to live near the harbor, on a hill so I have a fantastic view of it all!

The next two shots were taken in Houston, Texas yesterday where I went to attend a family reunion. Of course I couldn't resist taking a few shots of the stormy skies as we drove around, seeing the sights.

I like the 3rd orange coloured pic.

Lew said...

Gorgeous shots of the Seattle sky, especially the "firey" last one! I also like the trees that set off the sky in your Houston shots. I like my stairway shot too. The church is up the hill and to the left of the view up the stairs. Chris and I did not have enough time to go up the hill. I plan to go back soon snd get shots of things we missed.

I'm always happy to see the ever changing skies in your part of the World and this week we get Texas skies too! Wonderful, yet quite different, clouds in both locations.

Have yourself a wonderful weekend and hope the reunion was fun too!

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
