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. 
We've had a wonderful variety of skies this past week, from gray and pouring rain, to enormous, fluffy white clouds and beautiful sunsets!  Doesn't get much better than these! And as I sit here at my desk watching the day draw to a close I realize once again how very blessed and fortunate I am! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy! And an early Happy Father's Day!!

Lovely skies as usual Sylvia. I wish to share the lunar eclipse of yesterday with you http://blogs.gonomad.com/traveltalesfromindia/2011/06/total-lunar-eclipse-june-15-16-2011-gurgaon-india.html posted it on Thursday wondering if I should make it a skywatch entry too even then?

There's something about the clouds in the first photo, and in the last one, that I really really like.
Great collage, as always, Sylvia.

Great collage of orangey and silvery skies. More Christians should read Gandhi, he gives us some well deserved pokes in the eye.
