I love the color of the sky in your first photo, but the contrails in the last two are fascinating. You always have such marvelous photos. I hope you have a great weekend.

If I have fun shopping for christmas. No, not this year. Everybody will be all over the place so we skip that part this year. :) But we have Skype so we can talk. :)

Nice skyshots, but...it is snowing in your blog.:)

Hildred and Charles said...

Beautiful photos, as always Sylvia. Love the colours and the intricacies of the first.

Terrebel said...

Again you make it difficult to pick a favourite, Sylvia...I'll just treat your pics like my children...I love'em all!

And what's the source of your quotes? You sure know how to pick'em! ;-) Speaking of old age...I got a compliment from the surgeon whe he saw the first x-rays of my worn hip (which is now replaced and working like a charm!): 'I've never seen this much wear with anyone under 60!' Gee, thanks...;-)

Have a good weekend!

Andrea said...

Hi Sylvia, these are amazing captures. The first one is adorable, but for the last photo I wonder what contributed to those feathery clouds. I thought there might be a jet plane which just left its tails.

lotusleaf said...

Intellectual header!Above my head like the sky!

SandyCarlson said...

The liquid fire of the first shot just blows me away. All of these are so intensely beautiful. The contrails seem to be reaching for each other as if in prayer.

LV said...

Wonderful display of beautiful sky sights, but love the quotes. I can relate to most of them.

Karen said...

Wonderful captures! Beautiful silhouettes in the first two! Enjoy your weekend.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Haha! George Burns was hilarious, such a dry sense of humour, very beautiful image Sylvia and i haven't even started my Christmas shopping yet eeeek!

Arija said...

I don't know what it is about you, God seems to turn on more magic for you every week than anyone else.
The first shot is to die for but the last two, especially the last with the snaking contrails, leave me speechless.

All else aside, you have me LOL as well!

Gattina said...

Beautiful "scratches" in the sky !
I don't do any Christmas shopping, I do it the whole year long and put it aside for Christmas when I see a good bargain !

Pearl Maple said...

Fabulous collection Syliva of photos and quotes, thanks for your kind comments on my rainbow post.
