Sky Watch Friday 7/2

It's Sky Watch Friday and it's your chance to post your Sky pictures and go to Wiggers World to join. Why don't you get a photo of the sky and join in.

This is my favorite ponds with a great cloudy blue Sky.
I was feeling artistic so here is the sun view though the Ohio Buckeye Tree.
I was on the dock at Lake Hodgson and the Sun was dancing on the water. It danced into two Suns. The little wave caused the split and I thought it was a quite artsy. If you look at the shadow below you might even see Darth Vader's helmet in the shadow around the twin Sun eyes. I hope that wasn't too artsy for you.

It is well known that we Portuguese once sailed the seven seas searching for new lands, wealth and adventures.
We were brave in those days and gave the world new worlds!

Luckily I don’t have to sail the big oceans on a small ship to sea the wonders of our world …
No Sir, I just need to check with Mr. Tom, the finest host there is, for a trip around the world with SKY WATCH TOURS and with a click here, a click there I am quickly in the USA, England, Brazil, Italy, China, Australia, Finland … well, everywhere.

And on each stop I come to see a little marvel of our world under a great sky!
Hope you can come and see my piece of the sky at lenses & visions

An excellent sky watch series, Fishing Guy.

I like the shots of the feathers and geese too! I never did see any young geese this year. I guess I just wasn't in the right place at the right time!

Pretty pictures with magnificent views and the last with the reflection very beautiful congratulations

Smack dab in the middle of perfection and includes the music.

I think this is going to be the best Sky Watch Friday yet. The things I have seen are very encouraging and the photography is spot on.

I really admire your photography skills and your critical eye for composition, lighting and texture.

My Sky Watch Friday posts

Dewdrop said...

That or C3PO. :O) Great captures. I love the beautiful cumulonimbus tower rising in that first one over the mountains... two of my favorite things. Have a great weekend!

Ackworth Born said...

Great pictures but I do wish you wouldn't play the music automatically.

It isn't that I don't like it - I just don't want it suddenly bursting into life. Having the option to turn it ON is far preferable.

bobbie said...

Beautiful clouds, and I like that last picture very much - just something about it.
I also like your choice in music, if I haven't mentioned it before.

SandyCarlson said...

Artistic works well for you! These are great.

Rose said...

I love that first photo with those big puffy clouds!

RuneE said...

That's the nice thing about a blog - you do as you pleas! And it was not too artsy...

Those clouds almost look like mountains above the treeline in that first photo. Lovely!

kathiesbirds said...

Never too artsy for me! I like your favorite fishing pond! It looks so refreshing. I would rather dive in for a swim instead of fishing though.

Country Girl said...

I don't mind when people get too artsy. Nice pics. Especially loved those clouds. Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great 4th!

Greyscale Territory said...

Definitely not too artsy! It is healthy to put a little of yourself into pics! Lovely!

That cloud made me do a double take because it looks just like one of our big, snow covered volcanoes. And no, not too artsy for me.

There is nothing better than a great sky over your favorite fishing hole.

Well done, great SWF photo.

I liked the artsy stuff also.

Come visit,
Troy

DrillerAA said...

Great SkyWatch shot. It's overcast and rainy here today. Not a good opportunity.
However, I do have some pics posted of Cinderella's castle at Disney World from last week, in which the sky participated very well.
Have a great day.

Stacey Huston said...

Well once again, I got sidetracked with the music. Beautiful song by George Straight...Great "ARTSY" Skywatch post.. didn't know you had it in you(wink) Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful Independence Day!

Artsy? I think the pictures are just perfect! The last one is my favorite.

They're all great, but I especially liked the first one with the pond.

Too artsy? Not for skywatchers. :-)
