Sky Watch Friday #34

The new Sky Watch Friday is doing really well. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were over 300 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post.

Looking up into the cold Winter sky from my front yard we have a lot of small aircraft fly over. I was about 15 F but we had a sunny blue sky with white fluffy clouds.
This is from my trip to the Triangle Lake Bog as a copter broke the silence.
I was able to make two captures in the clear blue skies with a temperature of 34 F. Yes we are warming up this week.
Go to the site above to see a lot of great skies.

Esther Garvi said...

Your reference makes me wonder what the old skywatch looked like? The new one is fab! The only one I know though. Love your skies! Sheba came in the way of mine - which was gorgeous by the way - but so was she, so their sharing, lol!
Have a great weekend! By the way, Mojo has a mackerel sky going and is wondering if anyone knows why it's called such. I immediately thought of you, since your the Fishing Guy! but not sure if you fish at sea. My father used to fish mackerel (and so I totally get why those clouds are called after it) - delicious fish!

That first one was a really clean and fine silhouette picture.

Have a great weekend!

Carletta said...

Love the first one FG!
A copter in the trees. That's usually how I see them here. The flight path seems to be in my trees. :)

Dewdrop said...

You've got lots flying over you. I have seen that kind of copter around here... I'm near an air base. Great shots!

Carver said...

Great shot of the plane and also the beautiful blue sky and tree branches.

Me and my puppies said...

Cold winter sky, I want to be hearing warm spring breeze! :-)

Luke Wiley said...

The helicopter almost blends in with the tree branches!

Hey Fish - cool shots of things flying by. Keep looking up!

Rob Inukshuk said...

Good fun captures for SWF.

Bradley Myers said...

It looks like we were thinking on the same line for skywatch this week, good captures.

Wren said...

Nice theme tying them all together. It looks like it would have been a great day to be up in a small plane.

TCKK said...

Love these pictures. I love to see all types of aircraft. Have you ever been to Wright Pat? Love to see those big planes when they are flying around the base area there.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, these are great shots, FG! You can almost feel spring trying to squeeze a foot in the door of this world of ours! Sure he/she succeeds soon!

Tootie said...

You have quite a sky show there. :-)

alicesg said...

I love watching the planes fly above me. Like the way you capture the chinook through the trees. Have a nice weekend.

Janie said...

Good aircraft photos. And I liked seeing the red fox again in the previous post.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Tom, Hope you can get out and do some walking this week--since it's warming up a bit. Take care of yourself though--and go SLOWLY.

Great sky shots.. Like seeing the copter.

Have a good evening.
Betsy

Glad to hear you are healing. MB

I like the shot of the bird in the branches.

Beautiful shots!

Evita said...

Blue skies, white clouds humans and nature just enjoying themselves. Really love the one with the plane in the sky - looks like such a tiny aspect of the great big sky. Great lesson in that - thanks!

Mary said...

Love the plane against the clouds! Nice shot!

George said...

Nice sky watch pictures. Was there an air show or something going on or are the skies always that busy around your house?

Lisa Wilson said...

Nice catch!!

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Nice shots, especially the coptor through the tree. Hope your recovery still goes well.

Gretchen said...

Those are great shots! I'm hoping to be able to participate regularly again. I miss seeing everyone's view of the world. :)

Tammie Lee said...

So often those metal birds fill our skies. I am still amazed that planes fly. Ha.

tipper said...

WOW the first photo is amazing! I love to see planes or choppers go over our house-I always wonder at the people who are in them-where are they going and what is their life like.

Colin Campbell said...

Really like the first one.

Tricia said...

Great skies!!! Like the helicopter!!!

Dina said...

Oh Fishing Guy, only now I'm learning of what happened to you!
I am so glad your heart problem was found in time and that the doctors fixed you up. Be well! All blessings to you.
