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. Our weather has been a little warmer, but still very wet -- incredible amount for the month of March! Ah, but Spring is on its way!

Lovely sky shots, as always.

Beautiful skies as usual Sylvia. Will wait for your next edition of pictures!

George said...

The color of the sunset sky in your first two photos is absolutely gorgeous. Wonderful captures. I also like your last photo of the coast under that clear blue sky.

clairz said...

It's wonderful to see your world through your eyes because you obviously love it so much! Happy SWF, Sylvia.

Al said...

Gorgeous skies as always, Sylvia, especially those first two. Send some of your rain our way, we've got dangerously dry conditions; this week we even had a wildfire within the town limits!

Socrates was a smart man who I doubt has yet been superceded in wisdom … even though we knew so much less about our planet during his time. I love the top photos and noticed that the sky we share from a distance was equally spectacular. The daytime sky was a prelude to the later stunning scene.

The Cosby quote made me laugh!!

NCAA tournament time here in Tulsa. I didn't buy tickets but I'm going to walk around in the crowd at lunch.

You never fail to make me smile with you beautiful photographs and wise and funny quotes Sylvia.

Lovely color in those first two Sylvia. Today is predicted to be the one dry day in a long series of wet ones. I've too much to do for my camera to take advantage of the weather so my archives will have to see me through for a while. My photo a day for "Around California" is proving to be more of a challange than I had expected.

Regina said...

Wow such gorgeous skies Sylvia!

Happy SWF and St. Patrick's Day!
Ebjoy a lovely weekend.

Oh Sylvia, I love those skies. You certainly have the rosy tinted lining my song talks about.
Thanks for your comment on my new banner. Actually, it's the first Banner I had when I opened my Blog a little over three years ago. I had just finished painting the portaits in the banner. I decided it was time to enjoy them again.

Awesome series. Those first two shots so full of striking color are gorgeous. All of them are beautiful and the quotes superb, but the fire in one and two is superbly captured.

Wren said...

Glad you got your St Patrick's day green in with that last photo! But I wouldn't have wanted to miss the others which are so lovely.

I see a moving van in your header. Did you find your new home?

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.
