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.  Just like last week, we actually had blue skies, lovely, puffy white clouds and SUN!!! They seem to be scheduled for Wednesday these days! And again the skies began to change as the afternoon slipped by and ended like this one.

Liberty doesn’t work as well in practice as it does in speeches.  — Will Rogers

Principles have no real force except when one is well-fed.  -- Mark Twain

Why not go out on a limb? That's where the fruit is.  — Will Rogers

Always drink upstream from the herd.  — Will Rogers

The problem ain't what people know. It's what people know that ain't so that's the problem.
Will Rogers

If pro is the opposite of con, what is the opposite of Congress?  — Will Rogers

I especially like the top shot and the lovely frame works just fine, Sylvia.

Martha Z said...

I like that last quote, progress, it never occured to me.

ladyfi said...

Gosh - you've outdone yourself with this stunning photos!

Arija said...

Your full moon capture is an artistic delight, I'm not complaining about the others either.

Have a wonderful fun filled weekend Sylvia.

Kay L. Davies said...

I agree with Jim and Arija. That first shot is a keeper. I like that frame better than the clipped-off ones, too.

Is there anybody in the public eye who is as witty as either Mark Twain or Will Rogers? If there is, I hadn't heard about them. All your photos are great, I really like the first one with the feathery branches and the one of the moon behind the leaves.

Linda Reeder said...

Great photos, Sylvia. And now the fog is lifting and I see the sun burning through. Another dry, mostly clear day!

Randi said...

These wonderful shots really proves that there is a moon somewhere in the sky. I can´t remember when I saw it last time. It´s foggy here every day. Your blue sky is so wonderful, Sylvia!

My entry is here

eileeninmd said...

Sylvia, these are wonderful and I love the framing too. You are seeing some beautiful skies there. The first shot is just gorgeous and the quotes are great. I love the blue sky and gorgeous clouds in the fourth shot. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by. BTW, I do not like hunting either.

Regina said...

Wow glorious and magnificent!

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Oh Sylvia, your new stage for sharing is so bright and cheerful. I am amazed at how so many people are changing their look, and I am so afraid to change that I might would lose it all... I think your images are splendid, especially the fourth one down. I always like jet streams, knowing jets have flown through, and I allow my imagination to soar as well. Have a great and safe weekend~ Mary

VALKYRIEN said...

Beautiful shots Sylvia - the two first are my favourites!

Carletta said...

Sylvia these are all great. The full moon is pure magic. My favorite of the quotes is "Principles have no real force except when one is well-fed." All the quotes are great but that one is my favorite.

Misalyn said...

Ebie said...

I am speechless of your full moon shot! Nicely captured!

Mark Kreider said...

Hi Sylvia, I especially like your moon shots. The moon has a way of getting to me that few other things do.

Karen said...

They are all terrific. My very favorite is the full moon shot, with the almost bare tree branches, it's just Gorgeous, with a capital G!

Photo Cache said...

Samson said...

Beautiful skywatch photos Sylvia, Have a great weekend

Kay said...

That first photo with the silhoette of the trees is just magnificent! Have a great weekend, Sylvia.

alicesg said...

Your header photo never fails to attract me. :) Lovely photo of the moon. Have a nice weekend, Sylvia.

GVK said...

Like the image of white streak in a blue sky (Photo 4).Learned from the quote that went withe photo.

John S. Mead said...

Great images ...and thanks for sharing so many of them! Cheers for a great weekend!

Liza said...

Fantastic photos!

Larry D said...

Always amazing, great shots! I really like the Will Rogers quotes.

Francisca said...

For me the first image takes the prize this week, although of course all are super, Sylvia. I'm just partial to those wispy tree silhouettes and the warm glow of the sunset. And of course we are of one mind on the wisdom of your quotes, with Will's "It's what people know that ain't so that's the problem" striking the loudest chord.

chubskulit said...

Gorgeous!

My Sky shots, have a great weekend!

Indrani said...

You always present beautiful shots, each one different and so pleasing. Loved these. :)

Lara @ Uproad said...

Jidhu Jose said...

Mark said...

Great shots but I love the Will Rogers quotes

stardust said...

In a series of beautiful shots, I like a crescent moon hanging in the indigo sky though it may be simple.

Mridula said...

The full moon shot is gorgeous Sylvia.

Nature Rambles said...

I LOVE your photos! The first one...the look of the tree complements the wispy clouds. And the moon beyond the nearly-leafless branches...oh-so-magical!!

Have a fantastic weekend, Sylvia!

Louis la Vache said...

hee hee...
Ronald Reagan had a variation on one of the Will Rogers quotes:
It isn't that Liberals are ignorant, they just know so much that isn't so."

kat said...

Opposite of congress is progress lol.(That's why)

Oh I so love the second photo Sylvia...

Happy SWF.mine is here

This is a very nice series again with a lot of variation, Sylvia.
