Sky Watch Friday!

Time to share your skies, the beauty over your world, the clouds, the colors! Sky Watch is hosted each week by  the Sky Watch team of  Sandy, Wren and me. And this week as every week, we remember Klaus and know that he joins us in spirit! 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. 
The middle of September already???? Where did summer go???? Time does seem to fly whether you're having fun or not!!  Fortunately, I always have fun!  And the skies are always beautiful at sometime of the day! 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend with lots of love and laughter! Enjoy!
 
 Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one.

These are all beautiful Sylvia. The first one is my favorite. It made me gasp as it loaded.

Pearl Maple said...

Harvest moons are a delight to the autumn skies and your new blog banner is the coolest !

Judy said...

All three photos are gorgeous in their own way, but I am leaning toward preferring the middle one, the sunset! The last of the golden sunlight at the horizon, and a contrail, just to make it perfect!

Jackie said...

Three great shots, but I love Cirrus so the first is my favourite, and the moon shot second, all beautiful.

Kim, USA said...

Now I have a good laugh with the header, love it!

I know the Summer has passed by so quickly and the weather has been atrocious, must of been the wettest on record and the 80 mph winds up here in Scotland ( hurricane Katia) were not great either. Thanks for sharing, I like the Harvest Moon.

Ms. Becky said...

Hi there - more splendid pictures and words!

Priorities are a bit like juggling I think! The better you get at it the more things you can keep in the air without dropping any! I suppose the real skill is to know when you really have reached the limit of your skills so that you dont drop stuff!

Have a good 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.
