Sky Watch #18

Sky Watch Friday has on it's own site. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were 366 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post.

Here I caught this light in a parking lot pointing out a really neat cloud formation.
This was early in a sunset on a cloudy evening.
This is a little while later and as the sun got lower it was able to break through the clouds. I was able to capture these back lit clouds. I always like the look of these types of clouds.
Have fun visiting the cloud shows around the world. The more you visit the more people will visit you.
