Happy Thanksgiving Sky Watch Friday!


Time to share your skies, the beauty over your world, the clouds, the colors! Sky Watch is hosted each week by Klaus and the Sky Watch team of Klaus, Sandy, Wren and me. Join us and the many people from all over the world who share theirs with us each week! Click on the post title to be taken to the SWF website where you can sign up. We've had a little of everything this week in the way of skies and weather. We've had a gorgeous full moon in a clear sky, we've had plunging temps, wind, gray skies and five inches of snow!! It's been a wild ride to be sure! And here are some of our skies!

It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.

Wonderful pics! Thanks for sharing and Happy Thanksgiving.

Terrebel said...

Happy Thanksgiving, Sylvia! Althought some would say it's less of a happy day for so 45 million turkeys...But keep in mind the word of Tweety as he sad to Sylvester:"Of course I feel sorry for the hungry cat but I pity more the ltweety-bird who is about to be eaten..."

Great shot of the moon, there. And that snow landscape...*sigh*. We'lle be going to the Giant Mountains in the Czech Republic in february. Hopefully it wil look as nice there as in your picture.

Have a good weekend!

Your SWF shots are just brilliant irrespective of the time of day.

sceneoftranquility said...

I love the sunset most,lovely skies for SWF.

lizziviggi said...

Lovely skies-- I especially love the moon behind the bare branches. Looks like you got the same snow we did! Alas, my little girls were sad this morning to wake up to a shriveled snowman. I imagine there will be others, though! Love the Mark Twain quotes! I'm excited to read his autobiography.

Jo said...

Hi Sylvia;) wonderful quotes from MT again! And yes, we both saw and photographed the same moon. Amazing. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Blessings, Jo

Indrani said...

Excellent shots and terrific quotes.
Have a great weekend.

Francisca said...

Today my favorite is the moon shot. And I've quoted Twain's keep your mouth shut message for decades! I trust you had much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving weekend, Sylvia. I'd like to thank you for your many visits to my corner of cyberspace and your always encouraging comments. Thank you!

Shirley said...

Some terrific shots here Sylvia!! Have a great weekend!

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Sylvia, I do hope that you had a splendid Thanksgiving filled with blessings of family and friends gathering together. Each day is such a blessing.

Randi said...
