Sky Watch # 21

Sky Watch Friday has on it's own site. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were 300 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post.

The skies of dark and grey late Autumn turned into sunshine and blue skies. The snows were still there but that even changed.

This is an early morning Thanksgiving day photo at a pond.

There were photo options that had been gone for a week.
I showed the Mac Center at Kent State and this is the sky with a light instead of the building.

This final shot is where I captured the geese on yesterdays post along the Cuyahoga river.
If you like skies take a trip around the skies of the world.

Michele of Rocky Mountain Retreat has had another set back and will not be posting this week. If you know her stop over and see the beautiful posting from her husband, Marcell, on her condition. Let us all hold her in our prayers for a recovery from this illness.

Wonderful images. Snow is the last thing on my mind here - yesterday was 44.6C

Deobrah Godin said...

I especially love the one of the big wispy couds that cross-hatch each other; must be perpendicular winds at differing altitudes?

crete said...

Lovely winter shots. We see so little of the snow here, but it looks like a truly cold winter this year.

Arija said...

Such wonderful photos. That first one has me totally enchanted and the mirror in the second too. All of them are lovely.
I don't know how I came to miss your World, maybe because the links fell out a few times, I've seen it now and it is an enviable one.

The lamp post shot is particularly good: a real mish mash of high altitude cirrus clouds up there, but with lots of blue too.

Reluctantfarmchik said...

Fishing guy - sorry I disappointed you with the lack of pond in my post - I actually thought of that, but since I'd not taken a shot with my iPhone, it would break this weeks rules!! :-) I enjoyed your series of pictures - especially the Thanksgiving day one of the pond - nice! Hope your weekend is fabulous.

shaker said...
