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. So our new year is a week old! Hope yours is off to a great start. I was able to take advantage of the lovely days we had last week to get some interesting captures -- hope you enjoy them!
If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.

Great captures as always, Sylvia. I love the streaming clouds in the first two, very interesting.

Carver said...

These are all fantastic Sylvia. I love seeing the moon at different stages. I am also fascinated by vapor trails and the patterns you captured were great.

eileeninmd said...

Sylvia, Your skies are looking beautiful there. I love the streaking clouds across the sky. Great photos and quotes. Have a great weekend!

Terrebel said...

Hi Sylvia!

Yes, I'm back after a serious computer-breakdown. First of all: A happy New Year to you and your loved ones. And second I'd like to compliment you on another set of astonishing pics. Especially the one of the full(?) moon between the tree-branches...I love it!

Have a great weekend!

lotusleaf said...

Incredible designs on the sky! The full moon shot is beautiful.

Martha Z said...

I see that you had some more great skies but I looks from the weather forcasts that is coming to an end.
I suspect that you agree with Will Rogers about going with the dogs. Who'd want to go to heaven if God's other creatures were left behind?

George said...

You've gotten Skywatch off to a wonderful start in the new year. I really like your first picture and the picture of the full moon.

Janie said...

The swirly cloud patterns are lovely, and the golden sky is beautiful, too.
Love the Will Rogers quotes.

Bellybytes said...

So there you are! I had to scroll down pretty much to seek your wise words. Thanks for sharing your beautiful sky shots with your wonderful quotes.

Kim, USA said...

I so love your moon shot!!

Beverley Baird said...

Such gorgeous skies! Love your quotes as usual!
Hope you had a great New Year's Sylvia!

Indrani said...

Amazing cloud patterns.
Beautiful series.

Wren said...

One can never go wrong with Will Rogers, and his comments are sharply pointed right at our current political climate.

How lucky we are to have the peace and calm of the deep blue sky to remind us of the bigger picture.

magiceye said...

just one word - gorgeous!!

Mridula said...

Sylvia the way you can make the white sky look good, it is talent, I can never get good pictures with white skies.

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.
