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.

In spite of the rain and the chill, I've been delighted to see some lovely skies put in an appearance at sometime during most days and those are the ones I share with you today. I hope that you, too, are able to see the beauty in your skies! It always helps on the dark days to be able to see even a patch of sunlight -- and I'm always looking out for those!
Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them. Bruce Lee

Another wonderful collection of images and quotes, Sylvia.
Here in California we are seeing the return of interesting skies, chasing away the lovely but uninteresting blue of summer.

Hello Sylvia,
I like this new system of the links in reverse order: we flutter down and down, like the leaves around us are doing.
Pictures are astonishing.

You found some beautiful skies ! I really had difficulties this time. Last week the sky was boring blue without a cloud and this week it's boring grey without a cloud. I had to dig out older pictures, lol !

Indrani said...

These are superb captures. The cloud pattern is amazing.

Stewart M said...

Hi there - nice set of pictures! I always think that a burst of light on a cloudy day seems so much better than interesting clouds on a sunny day!

Just back from some time away - pictures to follow!
