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 had a blue sky day late last week and as the day slipped by the sky seemed to be celebrating not being covered by clouds and grim gray stuff and they began to play and I shared in their delight!! Hope you enjoy them, too!
Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.
Aristotle

Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.
Albert Camus

A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
Arnold H. Glasow

A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same.
Elbert Hubbard

A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world.

I love whispy clouds. These are fantastic Sylvia!

clairz said...

I love the delicate clouds in the first two photos. Several times this week when I was out walking very early I thought, "we're having Sylvia skies!" Then I realized it was because we had a few clouds up there. No rain, though.

Happy SWF, Sylvia.

Thom said...

Sylvia, these are such beautiful, feathery clouds! I really like the "friend" theme of your quotes today...They are all so true!

My favorite one is "A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same."

Lovely words and the clouds are like a ballet in the sky :)
Have a great weekend Sylvia!
Ps Next skywatch will be from Budapest :)

Eve said...

It looks like a perfect day of blue sky! I wonder what it is that causes the clouds to fan out that way? The way the sky is always changing makes it so interesting to sit back and just watch it sometimes. :D

Pearl Maple said...

Fun photos of clouds Syliva, the lines and decorative elements they add to the sky can be just beautiful.

ladyfi said...

Ha,I finally did get in!
Sylvia, your wisps of cloud are pure magic and the upper air disturbance so well illustrated by the con trails blown in all directions. Watching clouds is so satisfying.

Keep at it and enjoy!

I love the blue skies with feathers you captured. They do look to me like feathers were tossed. As always your quotes are so good too.

Genie said...

Beautiful dancing clouds. I had never thought about clods looking like feathers, but now I see what Carver is saying. Great captures and I adore your quotations this week.

SKY DITTY

Hey, my little pretty,
Sing a sky ditty,
Sing about the stars and the sun.

Hey, my little pretty,
Sing a night ditty,
Sing it when the day is all done.

Very beautiful sky photos. Have a nice weekend.

Hildred and Charles said...

Gorgeous blue skies Sylvia, and I love those feathery clouds. You might try sending some of those blue skies up north to British Columbia and I'm sure they would filter into the Similkameen.
Real ones would be nice, but your deigital ones are quite lovely.

Beverley Baird said...

Love the wispy clouds and the friend quotes you've added!
have a wonderful weekend Sylvia!

Angie said...
