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 address under the post title to be taken to the SWF website where you can sign up.  These five shots were taken over five nights, starting last Friday. It seems no matter what the weather does during the day, the skies celebrate the end of each day -- and so do I!

America is a nation that conceives many odd inventions for getting somewhere but it can think of nothing to do once it gets there.

Things in our country run in spite of government, not by aid of it.

Oooh I like them all Sylvia (when don't I love your pics). Hey, I am going to be gone all afternoon. Would you mind sticking my link in the SWF meme for me? If not, don't you worry about it.

Take care,
Antonette

The little characters drawn for your header this time around are especially delightful, Sylvia. Your sunset captures are so alluring and restful. The top one especially reminds me of a Westcoast sunset.

Arija said...

No matter what the weather throws at you, you always get a stunning sunset!

Am having fun and games here. Got something very akin to whooping cough. QUack prescribed two different anti-biotics and two different puffers. He said he could not believe that with the sound in my lungs I could still be standing upright. When needs must . . .

After taking two lots, I feel a little better already even if I have two days worth of dishes piled up!

Enjoy your weekend and glorious sunsets while they last.

Before I address the issue of the beauty of your sky shots this week, I have to say...YOU LUCKY GAL...another great banner from India. You are going to need to make a book of them all one of these days to put on your coffee table or side table. They are all so special and pretty. These skies are absolutely out of this world...so unusual and beautiful. And your captures are fabulous. Happy SWF-genie
