Sky Watch Friday # 28

The new Sky Watch Friday is doing really well. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were 339 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. We had Mr. Linky problems so some couldn't sign in. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post.

Yesterday I showed a New Years Day photo and here are some more from the Winter sky. This was taken at 11:30 AM. I had some lens reflections from the bright Sun which I left in. It was 1:00 PM and the clouds had overtaken the Sun.
I was able to get a couple of angles on the Sun.
I then take you to the 6:30 PM sunset with some great colors in the sky.
Go to Sky Watch to see some great sky shots.

Great shots. I REALLY like the 2nd and 4th ones!

Carver said...

Wonderful wintertime shots. I love how the sky looks like cotton wool in some of them.

Dewdrop said...

The second and last are my favorites, but you have a wonderful collection. I am partial to an altocumulus stratiformus cloud structure. The pink and blue in the last are so delicately woven together. Awesome!

Carletta said...

I really like the last two. The third one is like a postcard and the colors in the last one are soft and pretty.

Sylvia K said...

These are really awesome shots! Thanks so much for sharing the beauty! I still can't sign in to Mr. Linky, do hate to miss a Sky Watch!

Guy D said...

Nice assortment of photos, Tom. Fortunately, it looks like Mr Linky is on good behavior this week, so we should have a good collection of skywatchers to visit.

HI FG,
I like all of these, but esp. the last two. You caught cool cloud formations and the last, mmm.

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

The last one is especially beautiful. I believe it is going to rain this whole weekend and here I had been thinking that I would be able to get out to take some pictures.

Great photos, especially that bottom one. Love all that popping pink.

Raquel said...

Wonderful shots!

Arija said...

Love the first one with the exploding sun, although the others are nice too.

Afanja said...

As every week they're wonderful again.
I specially like the second and the fourth picture.

Catherine said...

On the second one, I was amazed by the thickness of the clouds. It gives texture to your picture.
That's a wonderful serie for Sky Watch.

Tarolino said...

Great captures! Picture number 3 is intriging. Looks like a gigantic UFO is landing to spread menace on us earthlings. It really is very unique.

Quiet Paths said...

Excellent clouds. I love those dreamy patterns but that last shot is a gem.

Mary said...

I love those skies full of fat full looking clouds...wonderful!

Pagan Sphinx said...

The second and third photo amaze. I don't think I've ever seen clouds like that; either in real life or even in photos. The textured look of the clouds is amazing.

Thank you for hosting and happy SWF!

chanpheng said...

Nice pictures. The clouds are very interesting.

tipper said...

Loved the skies-the sunshine-the cotton clouds-and the pink in the last one.

Kathiesbirds said...

Love the shots of the clouds, especially the one rimmed by trees! Congrats on the award!

spookydragonfly said...

Great captures!! Yesterday I took many photos of the skies overhead that looked almost identical!

Ken Conger Photography said...

Good stuff. Like the bottom image the best with the colors. Blue Skies.

Misty Dawn said...

I really, really like those second and third shots! Those clouds are awesome!
