Sky Watch Friday #35

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.

This post is through the pines. I was at the newest national park in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park for my walk yesterday. Yes, the Cuyahoga River, from Kent, is at the center of the park as it runs North between Akron and Cleveland.

I thought these pines were quite the setting for a windy day with fast moving clouds.
This pine with the bent top was pretty neat.
The clouds were putting on quite the show as they moved.
I was surrounded by pines as I was able to capture some neat looks through the pines.


I may have pushed a little too far yesterday because I feel a little sore today. Sometimes you must push to feel better at a later time.

Things and cloud change fast.

Sue said...

Lovely skies, as always. We have some tall evergreens in our neighborhood I enjoy including in pics from time to time, but the clouds are usually on the other side of them, behind me as I'm looking at them.

I enjoyed scrolling down to see your birds of many sizes in the air and water.

Steffi said...

Cold but bright - definitely a March sky.

Carole said...

Just beautiful! I am a huge fan of our NPS. A little sore is okay. It was worth it!

bowledover said...

My mantra is if I ache today tomorrow some more exercise will take the ache away.
This is not right for all people though. Do not push your self.
FG.
Lovely skies and cloud.
Be well.

PJ said...

Iknow the feeling, FG. I started a 100,000 meter rowing challenge yesterday at my local YMCA. I did 4,000 meters and now I'm waiting to see how I feel tomorrow. It's always the second day for me. Happy SWF!

Delightful images and you have managed to keep the colours of the trees just right which is not always easy against the sky.
