Sky Watch Friday 4-11

If you would like to join Sky Watch Friday go to Wiggers World


This was a nicer week with a promise of Spring getting closer. We hit the 70'F two days but there was frost on my car windows this morning. Guess what, the weathermen are predicting snow for the weekend. What would April be without a snow.

We had a beautiful sunset one night this week. I haven't seen many of these.
I went to a local park to get pictures of the two towering trees as they go into the sky.
The winter has hurt this one some but I think it will put on a display this year.
You can see the loose branch in the sky.

I love the glow of the sunset through the trees. And I love fractal skeletal tree photos. Yours are very full and interesting.

This conveys a really nice impression of the atmosphere in the photos. Congratulations on the sunset!

great photos.

Good sangin, good pitchers, and good fun. Who better than a fisherman to know the beauty of the sky. Red sky at morning sailors take warning - Red sky at night sailors delight. Good fishing from the Texican.

The tree in the bottom photo has an intriguing shape. Makes me think of an obelisk.

These weather patterns are nuts. I comfort myself by recalling the heat wave of 6 years ago, when kids were swimming on Easter vacation!

I love trees against the sky. So lovely.

Well Done... these are stunning for Sky Watch.. and I have a thing for trees.. I don't go around hugging them or anything.. not that kind of thing.. I just like them...
How am I going to go on this week with Sky Watch, Blogging and The Masters being on.. ;o)
Just Rose -4 =68 again top of the leader board...
Did you get to see any? Our BBC will be showing it live at times and then highlights..

What about the Hole in One... another Brit.. Ian Poulter -2 =70..

I still think the man to beat will of course be Tiger..
Anyhow back to Sky Watch...Tom

These are classic examples of Ohio skies. Nice shots.

Good job!! Love that first photo, especially ... but I'm partial to trees also!

gardenpath said...

Nice tree and sky shots. I guess trees in any form are one of my favorite things to photograph.
I hope the snow fizzles out before it gets up here to Maine! We had 66º yesterday.

Stacey Huston said...

Great old tree. Thanks for sharing Fishing Guy. You get to get out and go fishing lately or is the water still to cold. ;-) Supposed to be nice this weekend (here anyway)

nina said...

I love the shapes of trees against the sky--a nice way to appreciate them--before they all leaf-out.

Anita said...

Very nice photos! Such great colors...
I feel sorry for the broken tree... You should see the sorry state of the trees here in my town, after a tornado destroyed 95% of the town last year!

Carla said...

These are great sky watch photos!

John said...

The photos are awesome!

Daniel J Santos said...

Beautiful images, well done.

ellen b said...

Beautiful skies for sure. The sky and clouds looking through the trees are really great. Have fun this weekend, (fishing?) :)

Jonna said...

Great photos. I love sunset ones, especially!

Love the towering trees. The ice storm we had here in December damaged most of the trees here too.

Someone told me that this Winter is being considered the "worst Winter ever" back home in Ohio.

It's almost fishing time! Ahhh, that makes me miss my dad, the wolf, and Mogadore Reservoir!

Kostas said...

Very beautiful photographs with marvellously hot and cold colours, make our disposal and your blog.

Rambling Round said...

Hi there, Fishing Guy! Gotta ooh and ahh over that sunset! Oh, and I love the name of your blog, and I wouldn't want to turn off the music...

Angie said...

Beautiful photos and I enjoyed the music as well

The weather's crazy but soon it'll be so warm we'll be complaining about the heat. ;-) But I do hope you didn't get any snow.

Tree limbs are beautiful against the sky, I think.
