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 and I. 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! 
All seems to be well again and Sky Watch is up and running!

Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are
infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.     Oscar Wilde

Often while traveling with a camera we arrive just as the sun slips over the
horizon of a moment, too late to expose film, only time enough to expose our
hearts.

Update on my daughter! The surgery went well and she will be leaving the hospital in a few days. Thank you for all the good wishes!!

Well, you have gone and done it again...more fabulous skies. I am wondering if you all get better skies on the west coast than we do. That first one is so beautiful and the quote is so lovely. I love looking up quotes and reading them. The third shot is another awesome one. I have never seen one so red as this. It’s unbelievable. All of them are pretty but these are my favorites. ps...we are coming to Seattle and B.Island in August. Bud and my son are going on a weeks hike on the Pacific Crest Trail and I am going to sit on B. Island and chill. Cannot wait. genie

What wonderful photos you have for us again today, Sylvia. I agree about that last shot. The colour is just superb!

Hi Sylvia, My prayers go out to your daughter. I hope shes recovers quickly from the surgery. Your skies are absolutely gorgeous. The first and last ones are my favorites. Happy Skywatching. PS, I also hope everything is Ok with Sandy. Have a great weekend!

Wow! I have never before seen a sky like the one in your last photo--It's a spectacular red-orange! The light orange in the first one is gorgeous, too!

I hope Sandy is OK.

Carletta said...

I have to agree with Genie - I think you do have better skies there. They get washed out by the time they get here. :)
The color and texture in that last one is is awesome!

Hope Sandy is ok.

I sure love your series of photos this week, they seem to get better and better...love the last one. Hope your daughter gets well soon.

I am worried about Sandy at Sky Watch as she always has the linky up...

Sérgio Pontes said...

The color of the sky is amazing

Al said...

Lovely shots, Sylvia - that last one is stunning. I hope Sandy is okay, and your daughter is in my thoughts today. I'm hoping and praying that things go well.

Arija said...

You do have glorious skies!

My dear, I have held you and your daughter in my daily prayers ever since and especially now. I sincerely hope it is successful.

I too am worried about Sandy, it is so unlike her. I had not realised that you two were the last stalwarts to host this meme! You are so brave!

TexWisGirl said...

these are gorgeous. (i hope both your daughter and your friend are okay!)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Sylvia -- your skies are just fabulous (and pure Pacific Northwest).

I was afraid something was wrong since the meme wasn't up when I checked in. I'm grateful to you and Sandy both for all you do -- hope everything is OK.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I am thinking about your beautiful daughter and wishing her speedy recovery.

Rajesh said...

I am so glad that SkyWatch came back up, I was missing it! The first image...is that a little cabin, or home in the bottom part? The lighting on it is really serene. The last sky image is as if the sky was lit up in flames, just amazing!

Francisca said...

I scrolled down to enjoy your beautiful skies when I saw your note about Kerith! Happy to hear all went well and hope she has a fast and full recovery!

Liza said...

Love your skies Sylvia. Visiting late for Skywatch Friday.

My Sky.
