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!
The only gift is a portion of thyself.

The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves.

Martha Z said...

Lovely captures, as usual, Sylvia. But I hear from another blogger that your skies recently have been filled with haze from distant fires.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Such radiant skies and love the colours! The first photo is a stunner with those "bubbling" clouds!

Icy BC said...

Sylvia, beautiful skies. The first shot is my favorite, lovely colors and photo. Happy skywatching and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Leovi said...

Yes, I really like the sky of the first, pretty pictures.

Lowell said...

Three brilliant ways to end the day. Your header picture is also brilliant. Bullfighting is a travesty so if your smiling face can deter the bulls from getting it between the shoulders, go for it!

Hildred and Charles said...

Gorgeous, as always.

The gold of the sky AFTER sunset - the best time for photos of the sky.

Beautiful photos and quotes for the day Sylvia.

We are going to be in Seattle next week. I guess we are doing it all, Mariners Game, Whale Watching out by the San Juan Islands, Mount Ranier, and I have an appointment at the Geocaching dot com headquarters that I may or may not make depending on what the family is doing.

afanja said...

Wonderful series. The first one seems to be made of pure gold. What a sunset ...

Huge, wonderful, eye-catching set! I especially like the first one -- great silhouette of the trees against an extraordinary sky. Very, very well done.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
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.
