Sky Watch Friday 8-8-08

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 335 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or above.

I had a great week of cloudy Skies. No storms but a great powerful show. I caught this bird in the tree, I think it is a young woodpecker.
I captured this while doing the horse shoot yesterday.
This was the duck pond that had some neat clouds.
I am going to do a post next week on Triangle Lake but this shot was so neat I wanted to share it today.
I do hope you enjoyed the Sky show.

The Triangle Lake one is pretty neat - I like the reflection a lot.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

You certainly DID have beautiful skies last week! No rain, though? It feels like Central Ontario has gotten a little rain every day ...but maybe it only seems like that. LOL

My favorite is the 3rd one. I'd love to see where that road goes.

What a beautiful series. Each and every one, beautiful. I think I especially like the duck pond, though I love them all.

A very beautiful sky show indeed!

Wow. Some really beautiful photographs.

Have been dealing with my RA in my hands. The chemotherapy drug I am taking for it doesn't get rid of the pain so it is hard to do much typing.

genny said...

oh nice one the sky is great. Happy SWF!

all about paper said...

Agree with you that cloudy skies gives a photograph lots of texture and interest but you do live in a beautiful area too.

Thanks for sharing your views and your kind comments on my blog earlier.

Tina Coruth said...

These are all beautiful! That is a wonderful capture of the woodpecker!

The Texican said...

The bottom two are my favorites FG. Pappy

Stacey Huston said...

Greatly enjoyed the show.. thanks for sharing

sunshine said...

All are beautiful but my fovorite is the first one.

Dewdrop said...

Thanks for sending Tricia my way... and calling me an "expert". I don't consider myself an expert, but I certainly love everything about weather and clouds. What she posted was actually a sun dog in a wispy result of a contrail that had been absorbed into the atmosphere as a cirrus cloud.

By the way, I am a female... ;O)

Larry D said...

Great photos, all zen moments.

redlan said...

the sky was so clear with cotton like clouds.

Kerri said...

Oh, these are lovely! Great work!!

Old Wom Tigley said...

The cloud shot are truely great.. and it looks nice and warm there... it's now turn a touch chilly in the air

pts said...

lovely!

Rambling Woods said...

Fishing guy..I would love it if you would come and tell me what some of the fish in our pond are. Somebody along the way stocked it with "game" fish..but I don't know my fish at all.

Tommy V said...

Nice series of pictures. I love having animals in the sky watch photos

Tink *~*~* said...

oh yeah - that last one is just wonderful. Reflection shots are hard because there are so many variables (fish, wind) that can break up your shot, and you have to be really patient. Thanks, that was beautiful.
