Sky Watch Friday 9/5/08

Sky Watch Friday now 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 373 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or above.

This is from the shore of beautiful Lake Hodgson on my drive to work.
I tried to get this shot from several views and I liked these two best.
I continued on and and the Sun rose on my drive.
It turned foggy in the mountains of PA and I was given this view. I thought very eerie.
Then I captured the reason behind the Sky. There is a green alien UFO if you follow the beam to the left from the Sun before the wavy contrail. Maybe Dewdrop can explain this one. LOL What a strange Sky for Sky Watch all in one morning.

You did good. Hard to pick which one is the best, can see why you showed them all.

Wow! If I had a view like that for my ride to work, I wouldn't mind going. Very beautiful.

Enigma said...

All are incredible shots -- especially since taken all one morning. A changing sky moves one's very soul. VERY nice. Mine is up, too. Hope you will drop by and say hello.

SandyCarlson said...

The sky offers so much--so many colors and moods.

Beautiful series of SWF photos, FG! That lake would easily be one of my favorite fishing spots.

Marvellous photographs with very beautiful landscapes! Congratulations!

Willard said...

You captured a beautiful series of sky shots. Well done!

Columbo said...

I loved you series of sky shots. I loved the first two the most. You got some awesome photos. Thanks for the posting.

Sara G said...

Beautiful photo's!!

Craver Vii said...

I like this progression of photos. They're beautiful.

You realize of course, that the green spot is not a UFO. No, it is actually a cloud fart. That's quite a remarkable thing that you captured it, because clouds are exceptionally bashful. ;-)

nonizamboni said...

awesome collection -- what a way to start the day!

Toni said...

Amazing change from beginning to end! Nice way to capture :)

mirage2g said...

Lol about the UFO.

You always have a beautiful set of sky to share with us!

Sorry to have dropped by so late, but its still Friday from my part of the globe. Visiting from Vienna Daily.

Greyscale Territory said...

Love this sky collection! Always enjoy seeing the varied moods of the skies!

Marie said...

Beautiful photos :)

Salty said...

Lovely series with the first shot simply incredibly beautiful, excellent composition, framing and exposure.

Thanks so much for your comment on my political post. There is no doubt that many Americans are hurting because of misguided policy. I listened to McCain last night and although he promised change I also heard making the Bush tax cuts permanent, new corporate tax breaks and more of the same broken health care system. I guess I'm still in the undecided column.

It's amazing the shots one can get that are all so different in a short period of time. You did a great job! The Brad Paisley concert sounded good also. I'll have to catch him next time he's around. You gave a good overview which I enjoyed. Happy SWF and have a wonderful weekend!!
