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. Hooray!! We had some sun yesterday and the day before and night before last I caught this sunset over a period of about a half hour.

These are beautiful, Sylvia. I love the rays in the first one, the plane in the second, and the wonderful colors in the rest. Magnificent!

just awesome

Martha Z said...

Nature did reward you with a beautiful sunset, I hope you get many more though it looks like the weather pattern may be returning to normal, if the forecasts can be believed.
I never think of Einstein as a philosopher though I know he streatched his mind to topics other than math and physics.

George said...

I didn't realize that Albert Einstein was a philosopher as well as a physicist. I like what he had to say about kissing and driving!
Thanks for some beautiful sky photos. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Spiderdama said...

Peter said...

A great collection .. and the quotes, thankyou for the comments on my moon.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great shots all of them and I like the third one the best because today I'm looking for a little color. Old Al Einstein was on smart guy with a wry sense of humor that I didn't know that he had and I love his quote on kissing while driving. He doesn't seem that kind of guy.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Yep, I'm back already. I just had to share that according to the Tulsa World newspaper, parts of Oklahoma were colder than the South Pole today. South Pole was -23F, our house was -11F, other

AL said...

Inspiring Einstein's quote, and postcard perfect photos brightens my day!

Linnea said...

Always gorgeous Sylvia! Thanks for your shots and words of wisdom!

The Einstein quotes are good, I was not aware of many of the them. Wonderful sky shots too.

lotusleaf said...

Beautiful shots. Glad to know that gravitation is not responsible for falling in love; hehe!

I like the fireball in the first photo.

The others are all beautiful.

Gattina said...

What an event to watch that after all these grey days ! It's so strange that we almost have the same weather and are living so far away from each other !

Stewart M said...

Hi there - I noticed the two canola pictures as well - the web moves in wonderful ways!

Of your pictures I think I like the one with the plane and the last one the most - the plane is a great addition to the picture.

Cheers Stewart M

You have a dramatic sky series today, Sylvia, and Albert was more than just a pretty face, hey? :-D

stardust said...

All the sunset scenes are breathtaking! Like the last quote, I also make my life philosophy simple to clarify not to confuse. Thank you.

bracomfotografie said...

Beautiful skywatch pictures you have there. Happy Skywatch Friday and hope you have a nice weekend.

Reader Wil said...

Oh those lovely sunsets! We should collect them and make a slide of them!Have a wonderful weekend.

ladyfi said...

Wow - what gorgeous celestial light!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

All beautiful. The last golden one is my favorite. And I love that quote -- Alice was a real character wasn't she, but her simple philosophy pretty much works! I didn't know that Einstein left so many pithy sayings. They make him sound very human and not an egghead at all.

eden said...

These are stunning photos. Love all your photos and quotes.

Have a great weekend.

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.
