Sky Watch Friday # 17

Sky Watch Friday has on it's own site. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were 359 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post.
I start at a sunset with a promise of some blue coming through between the trees of the neighbors. The sky wasn't much here on this day but the trees are ablaze with color a few week back.

This is the same stand of trees this week. The sky is better but the trees have lost their brilliance and are getting ready to shed.
Since the election I have been feeling a little reflective and so I offer some shots to prove that's the way I'm feeling. This is my favorite pond and we are looking North.
This is the same pond looking East toward the horse stables which can be seen in the background.
I do love reflective photos. Now, go visit some more wonderful skies.

I love photos with reflections too! The leaves are nearly gone here. Good thing I think bare tree limbs are beautiful, eh?

Texas Travelers said...

Love the colors and reflections.

I like it when the leaves change in the Fall, but I usually get sad when Winter sets in.

Looking forward to Spring,
Troy

Suzanne said...

The trees are beautiful and have such a striking colour.
I like the drama of the sky in the 1st one.
Happy SWF.

Carole said...

How beautiful! I do miss the changing colors of autumn living down here in Florida.

bowledover said...

It is a good time to be reflective I think.
Lovely photographs and the colour is still there.Thank you for sharing.
Now its time for some comfort food, to feed the imagination as well as the body.

Pearl Maple said...

Nice collection of photos for sky watch friday. The sky provides no end of entertainment, always something different going on up there. Fall is such a beautiful time of year.

Those before and after pictures are beautiful, even if they are beginning to lose their brilliance.

The first sky shot looks so menacing. I love it but I also love the reflecting shots. Beautiful.

Jeanne said...

Cool late fall shots. Isn't it amazing how quickly they change?

Sylvia K said...

What magnificent photos! The colors, the trees, the water along with the sky. It looks a lot like our fall here in Washington. Thank you!

reluctantfarmchik said...

I think I'd take up fishing just to see and be around water. Don't need a fishing rod to do that, do I?

PJ said...

Hey Fishing Guy, thanks for another week of SWF. You guys rock.

Your trees are so amazing, we don't get that this far south. Very beautiful.

The photos are lovely, I so enjoy seeing what you are doing. I think the whole world is shaken and awaken from a dark slumber so it is time for a little reflection.

Autumn reflections are the best!

gen/entry said...

I like the color of the trees....Love the fall.

Kahshe Cottager said...

I particularly liked the first shot with the light making a jagged break in the clouds and between the trees. Our leaves are all gone now and we are awaiting the snow which I hear is coming on Monday!

Faye Pekas said...

Love the dark, moody sky in the first shot.

Laura ~Peach~ said...

Angie said...

Hi FG,
These are amazing! The Autumn colours are glorious.

Titania said...

The autumn hues are wonderful, a great visual impact. But, I do love the inked out trees with the bank of dramatic clouds closing in and for good measure a tiny bit of blue to let you know it is not that bad. I love the photo. Have a nice weekend.

Inkivääri said...

Beautiful colours of autumn and sky:)

Afanja said...

Wonderful autumn pictures. I love the colors and the reflections in the pond. In a few days all the leafs will be gone, so it's great you caught them first.

Torsdag said...

I love the first one, beautiful shots for SWF.

Shinade said...

Oh my I am simply stunned at all of the beauty. The colors are magnificent.

I love them all but the reflection really grabs my eye.

I miss living in Maine when Autumn rolls around. We are south now and the change is very subtle.

Oh I did enjoy seeing the colors so very much.

Fantastic SWF.....thank you so much!!

Denise said...

Great series of photographs, from the first to the last. Great Fall colors. I love old barn so that one 'spoke' to me first, but then I also love water and reflections. I couldn't pick a favorite. They are all wonderful photos.

Merisi said...

Fishing Guy,
the trees in your part of the world are still beautifully dressed in fall colors! Colors never get as brilliant in the Vienna area, apparently. Must be due in part to different trees, but also to the fact that the nights are not cold enough.

I wish you a wonderful weekend!

John said...

Great set of photos for swf, FG!

Sailor Girl said...

FABULOUS!!!!

Kay said...

I love all your trees, with leaves or without. You are an incredible photographer.

Naturegirl said...

I love the reflection images and whatever mood Nature heals all!

Daryl said...

Such a contrast to my urban setting .. I am headed upstate NY at the end of the day and tomorrow I will be shooting all the leaves and skies of Beacon NY and Storm King art exhibition

:-Daryl

RuneE said...

We share that love for reflections!

Mojo said...

The first shot is very provocative. Almost appears that something split the cloud bank in half. And fall colors? It's hard to get a bad shot of those!

Susan said...

Autumn's a wonderful season, you captured it beautifully! Thank you for sharing these!

Robin said...

That pond looks like a wonderful place for a walk. Beautiful photos.

Bestemor Aud said...

The sky is never som beautiful as in the fall! All the colors against the sky are so beautiful. Quite the same in Ohio as in Norway I see. Very nice captures.

The Tile Lady said...

The leaves are just lovely, but I really did love that first photo of the sky. Isn't it great that the sky changes so much sometimes and gives us so much to work with! Take care--
Marie

Aileni said...

The first shot really is the one for me - excellent image with feeling.

jean said...

B. Roan said...

The colors are indeed gorgeous, but I like the wintery clouds in the first shot.
