Sky Watch Friday #15

Sky Watch Friday has on it's own site. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were 390 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this.


Today I'm offering four unrelated photos. The sky was a little plain but I always loved the little island beside the golf green. It has some railroad ties to cross if you pull your shot over there. I've never seen anyone cross them and I don't know if I worry about the ball.
This is some construction going on at the local car dealership while I was having my oil changed. I loved the construction against the neat sky.
This is my Red (leaves), white and blue (sky) post. Our elections are getting real close so get out and vote.
This is a really interesting sky with a hot air balloon up and away.
I do hope you enjoyed the variable skies which I captured. Visit some skies around the world.

Hey, the sky almost made the oil change fun, right? And hot air balloons are such fun to watch. Loved all four photos, FG.
Happy Sky Watch!

bobbie said...

They are all great, but I really love the last one! Just beautiful.

bowledover said...

Hi Fishing Guy, what do you play off?.You never mention the game you have played.
Lovely pictures that you are sharing with us.
I thought that (1) was a floating tree until I looked further.
Very restful and the hot air ballon is grand.

Leora said...

Great variety. Your choice of four reminds of the four seasons, though they are all fall landscapes. I like the verticalness of the second. Nice contrast with the relaxed trees and the ominous clouds of the 4th.

I liked the image where you have composed the silhouette of the balloon...Thomas

Christy said...

I was going through my google reader and opened up this post. As I scrolled down the post and came across the red white and blue image my almost 2 year old (five days away) saw it and ever so softly said "WOW". You know that little voice of complete awe. I had to leave a comment after a comment like that from him. And I was just trying to get caught up on reading not necessarily leaving comments today.

I really enjoy reading your blog though. The images and commentary are always a nice way to sit back and relax.

NCmountainwoman said...

You've done it again! Over the top photographs. I loved all of them.

Denise said...

It was great seeing you on the SkyWatch team and these are a lovely series of sky photos. Always so interesting.

Robin said...

Lovely shots. I like construction shot against the sky, too. Interesting lines and angles in that one.

Warren Baker said...

I like the Red White and Blue shot F.G. Thats what I would vote for!

Itravelhereandthere said...

These are all beautiful shots. Thanks for sharing.

walk2write said...

Interesting inclusion of reality (construction, oil change, golf game) with nature as a backdrop. I appreciate the fact that you don't try to pull the wool over our eyes with your blog. It's beautiful and true-to-life.

Pearl Maple said...

Fun collection of photos for sky watch Friday, always interesting to see what people find to share with us all. The sky is a never ending source of entertainment.
