Sky Watch Friday #36

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.

I would like to thanks all those fellow Sky Watchers for their understanding while I go through this recovery process. Life has changed in a couple of ways since the heart stint. Some for the better for sure when I think of the options.

Here is another shot of the sky from Brandywine Falls. It certainly was a fun place to get photos.
I loved the look of this sky. There are just a number of special elements in the sky. I love the bottom of the low cloud. I don't like wires but didn't want to give up the sky and sun.
This was taken this week on one of my walks. The plane was coming down and heading for the Cleveland Airport. The temperatures went into the 60's F for two days and now are back in the 40's F for a high. Ohio weather is unstable at the end of Winter.
Go to the site above to see some other great skies.

Beautiful clouds there. I know what you mean about the wires, but sometimes you just have to let 'em be for the sake of the good stuff!

Photo Cache said...

Fascinating sky.But then I think the sky is always of interest,such variations from moment to moment.
Blessings,Ruth

Lovely series of sky images!
Yes, wires and are manmade ugliness can be a nuisance. However, I think that in your picture here they do not intrude, quite the opposite, they underline (no pun! *grin*) the unmarred beauty of nature.


Best wishes for a swift recovery!

Sylvia K said...

I hope you are healing well, FG. I'm glad your health hasn't stopped you from taking photos and blogging!

They are beautiful indeed esp the one with the plane. Yeah, I don't like wires too but somehow they'd get on the way. :)

Babooshka said...

I'm going for the very fast bird shot today. The jet really is a cool image. I hope spring brings better health

Really like the last 2. It looks like the trees reach the clouds & the blue sky in the 3rd is amazing!

Ranger said...

I love the airplane shot!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Tom, Our weather is weird this time of year also.. It was so nice and warm and tonight and tomorrow night, it's supposed to go down to freezing. Hope it doesn't hurt our spring flowers/growth.

Great pictures as usual. I'm still enjoying my picture(S)....

Tootie said...

Keep up your walks! I'm sure they're great for your health and wonderful for us, when we get to view the photos you've taken. :-)

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Great set of shots, love the jet. Hope you are continuing to recuperate well.

Robert V. Sobczak said...

Great photo of the contrails. I was trying to convince my 7 year old son that those straight clouds come from an airplane.

George said...

These are neat pictures, Tom. I hope warmer weather returns to Ohio very soon.

Small City Scenes said...

Great clouds. I really love looking at clouds. MB

Powell River Books said...

Those are some heavy contrails. Thanks for all the help with SWF. I invite you to come see my clearing sunshine. - Margy

Lovely Sky Watch, Fishing Guy.
I like the beautiful varied sky of the second picture.

Luke Wiley said...

Nice one of the plane!

vincibene said...

Beautiful series!

Arija said...

Great shots, but now you have me worried about your ticker. I'm a bona fide member of the zipper club, having had three open heart surgeries and having been sent back to earth and I hope, having become a better person.

Hello Tom. There is nothing like a sudden illness to make us sit back and take stock of our lives. I think we sometimes forgt that we are getting older and cannot do the same as we did 20 years ago. Our minds might still be the same but our bodies are not. So listen to this old lady and take better care of yourself. :)

Beautiful skywatch pics Tom. Where I am staying now I just never seem to see sunrise and sunset anymore. When I go on vacation in May I am going to have to take a lot of pictures to mak up for it. :)

Mary said...

I love the little tree sticking up bravely in the sky and the clouds are awesome.

TCKK said...

Great pictures. I especially love the jet.

Lisa Wilson said...

soulbrush said...

Erin said...

Lew said...

The walks in fresh air are good for the heart and the soul! And I appreciate your sharing of the nature as you pass by the falls and birds and sky. Hope your recovery is speedy and complete.

Tammie Lee said...

Wonderful series of images, each one so different. The clouds in the middle one are wonderful. I feel the same way about wires... but hey can't pass up that beauty!
