Sky watch Friday #40

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.

The skies this week have been all over the place and even a little blue.
This has been the norm for the sky as the sun tries to break through.
There are some great skies if you go and visit.

You must be enjoying some blue skies, I know I do when they make an appearance! The silhouettes are wonderful against both sky images!

bowledover said...

I too like the tree silhouettes against the filled in back ground.
Nice blue sky in the first picture to compensate. May you have many more soon.

RuneE said...

Better with a grey sky than no sky :-)

Sylvia K said...

Glad to see some blue, but both photos are fabulous! Even when I'm tired of clouds and gray, they never fail to fascinate me. Super shots, FG!

Merisi said...

Sky and trees go together like magic - glad you have blue skies again, though!

We have had Spring roaring in over the last two weeks, temperatures for the last couple of days have been the highest here in all of Europe (yes, higher than in Southern Italy and even Marrakesh!).

That top one looks like a chicken had started to scratch...I really like it.

Pretty Life Online said...

nice catch for skywatch... mine's up too hope you can drop by...

Tipper said...

Soon we'll be seeing summer skies with sun everyday!

Babooshka said...

Do you know both are so lovely but I am really drawn to the grey sky. It's so fragile, a delicate beauty.

That last one looks a bit angry, glad you got some happy blue skies for balance. Beautiful shots.

Donna(Texas) said...

Still looks Cold there!! Beautiful shots!!

Louise said...

Looks cold. And it's cold here today. In a couple of weeks, that will be a thing of the past, but right now it seems SO far away!

Oz Girl said...

Love the first shot... I think mom said it's pretty decent weather today in Akron. Of course, DECENT doesn't always translate into SUNNY. LOL.

Hope you're having a great week!

Jack and Joann said...

Always fun to visit your blog. Each week I think of you when I watch that cute little blond dancer on Dancing With The Stars who is also a good country singer. She and her boyfriend make a really handsome couple. Hope they get married.

Mary said...

I'd say your skies are looking a lot like mine. Too many gloomy ones this week, but the sun is beginning to break through! I'm ready for warm and sun all the time.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Spring weather is always one step forward and two steps back until we hit the tipping point! Beautiful captures Tom and there is promise. Thank you for sharing and have a lovely weekend.

Love the blue of the first and the gloom of the second! Soon, those trees will be filled with leaves and obscuring your view!

Love the tree silhouetted around the sky Tom.

A drastic change in skies!

mountain.mama said...

Thank you so much for setting up SkyWatch! I see the sky differently now. And your second picture looks like the skies I've been seeing here this week.

Sally in WA said...

I like the squiggly contrail on the first one. You can tell there were winds up high.
