Sky Watch Friday 5

I love to participate in Sky Watch and am humbled to be honored in the link. I try to be here each week. Sky Watch Friday has a new home and a life of it's own. Please check out the new sight and link in if you wish to participate. There were 375 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or above

This is the view across Lake Hodgson my fishing lake at sunrise from my car. Click on any photo to get a closer look. The view even got more spectacular as I drove to work and the Sun rose into the clouds.
Last weekend was a beautiful two days on the lake with a wonderful Sky. The fishing was also really good if you look at previous posts.
I even caught a Seagull aloft over the lake in the beautiful Sky. This cloud has an animal shape with the and I think it is Dumbo the flying elephant. This is my front yard yesterday morning with the Ohio Buckeye Tree set against the morning Full Moon. Those are the fast growing Buckeye from my home state tree.
This was a trip with me around the wonderful State of Ohio.

Ellyn said...

I loved the first two. What vivid colors.

Andy said...

My personal favourite is shot 2, nice colours in there. Could I just say that the auto play music on your blog kind of assumes that the person isn't already playing music on their computer, and it doesn't sound good playing over the top. If people want to listen to your jukebox, can they can start it themselves? Again, great sky watch, thanks.

Anne-Berit said...

Beautiful photos,I really love the first and the second one!

mirage2g said...

A lake plus beautiful sky in a photo is always the best to look at! I enjoy skywatch too and so do I enjoy your photos too! =)

Thanks for the trip around Ohio. I love the morning shots. I've seen a couple of shots in my rear view mirror as I drive west toward work, but so far haven't been able to find a place to pull over and take the shot. It's my favorite time of day.

Craver Vii said...

Yes, that cloud DOES look like Dumbo, and your fishing spot is so appealing... I wish...

I wish I could some day go fishing with you, though I don't know if I'll ever get out that way... I'm just sayin'. I expect there's a lot I could learn. That catch from the posts below is amazing.

Patty said...

Beautiful fishing lake. I'm too much of a slug to get up for sunrise. I do my fishing at sunset and right off the front porch of my floating cabin. My contribution today is about airplanes in the sky. I invite you to come see. - Margy

Sherri Kaye said...

These sky shots are just beautiful! I have enjoyed your site. Come visit mine sometime at www.sherrikphotography.blogspot.com. Have a great weekend.

nonizamboni said...

What a great photo album! That seagull was the icing on the cake.
Enjoyed your words this week too on the SWF intro.
p.s. on my walk around the lake last week I came upon a twenty-something guy grinning from ear to ear, carrying about an 10" bass he'd just caught.
Happy weekend!

Greyscale Territory said...

I enjoyed the trip to Ohio!

I dedicated a song to you at my place.

Jim said...

Wow, you fish in pretty places. I like your clouds over the water also, it always makes so much more of the blues. You really will do some sky watching if you look at all 106! Happy SkyWatching!
Thank you for peeking in at my Gutemala clouds (a couple alos over the water).

Beautiful pictures. Sitting on a lake and meditating is the best thing to do.

We've been having some excitement here in Laos. My SWF offering shows scenes of floods and sandbagging over here. I don't know that you'd want to try fishing here!

Leora said...

Great photos! When I saw your "name" on top of SWF, I thought, wow, I know him! Like I really know you? That's what it feels like when you've visited a good blogger like yourself often enough.

I'm proud to be comment #121 on this long list.
