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!  When we do have beautiful skies, they are truly awesome and sometimes I'm just lucky enough to capture them! I hope you enjoy these! Have a wonderful weekend filled with lots of love, laughter and lots of beautiful skies!!

        and city on silent haunches and then moves on.   Carl Sandburg

Beautiful skies Sylvia, and I agree with Jackie Joyner-Kersee about the age thing, or at least that's my excuse for acting the fool now and then haha!

Very beautiful Sylvia! I like all your sky photos but the misty one is my favourite. It hides something behind the veil of clouds.
Your header is brilliant as ever. Have a great weekend.

Pam said...

This header is by far the most unique one yet! Your friend is way-cool, Sylvia.
Peaceful, lovely and serene comes to mind when viewing your beautiful photos my friend.
Peace be with you.
