Sky Watch Fridays # 26

The new Sky Watch Friday is now a half year old. My how time passes so quickly. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were 296 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post.



This week I'm going to show you the evening sky from last weeks red sunrise. This was the most unusual wispy clouds showing. They seemed to trail down from the thick cloud cover.
I drove a little way and thought the reflecting pond may put on a neat show.

I did a second shot with just the pond as the view.
I was enjoying these clouds so much that I stopped again down the road at the golf course and took some more shots. This one at the pine tree was my favorite. The wispy clouds surrounded the pine tree.
Please have fun and visit some neat skies today from around the world.

It looks so grey over Ohio. But there's a certain beauty...especially of we call the grey "silver." They really are neat!

Merisi said...

Such magnificent skies,
love the whispy clouds!
We have had a long series of nothing but grey sky, mostly due to banks of fog which envelope the city.

Yeap the last one does look like the clouds are wrapping around that pine tree. Love the cloud reflection off the pond. Hope you have a wonderful week.

Oh Tom, those are beautiful photos. I wish I could participate, but it seems it's almost more than I can keep up with to post at all, let alone remember what to post on what days....but I do look and enjoy, and appreciate your efforts in making Skywatch successful.

Stacey Huston said...

Beautiful sky photo. Maybe I will have to see what I can come up with in the a.m. thanks for sharing Fishing Guy, but how did it get to be 6 mo's already??

Grammy said...

I so enjoyed your photos. I had to take a closer look at the pond reflection. It seem the sky keep getting better and better as time goes on. I have never seen any thing like the low clouds. I have seen some that reminded me a the start of a funnel cloud. But yours are fluffy like cotton candy.
Have a great week

very nice...i love that last photo too...

Pietro said...

A wonderful silver winter sky. The reflection in the pond is really great, Fishing Guy.
Enjoy Sky Watch!

Capt. Ben said...

Oh how it pains me to see a boat on the hard for the winter!

We went sailing on New Years day here in the ONC! It was a bit nippy, but no ice or snow.

At least your boat is still performing its most vital function... keeping water on the outside!

Arija said...

The pond shot is quite a gem. Nice that you shot another one of just the pond.

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

Oh my!! Those are terrific replections Tom.

The second photograph is by far my favorite: I really like the symmetry of the reflection.

Mary said...

Wonderful! Looks great reflected in the water! Congrats to all who work so hard on Skywatch.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Very nice pictures i love those reflection shots.

As for my photos i have to say those were my son's photos that he took for me when he flew to Calif. I personally do not fly anymore. I called him at the airport before he took off and i asked him to take photos from the sky.

Small City Scenes said...

Wonderful pictures. I am fascinated by all the different clouds in our universe. MB

I like the photos a lot. I never get tired of looking at wonderful sky pictures and water reflections. I guess most people love looking at them from the response to your sky watch blog.
