Sky Watch Friday # 46

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

The start of a day heading to the lake with my boat in tow. This is an early morning view across the cemetery.
The lake shows the similar cloud formation. The water is cold and the cold front weather had closed the fishes mouth.
There is a lot of time to take photos during those times. The head honcho of the Canada Geese was on his rock throne as a Mallard Duck goes whizzing past.
Go and see some other great skies above.

I guess it's difficult to catch a fish with a closed mouth!! Beautiful sky photos.

Sara G said...

Take care

Photo Cache said...

Looks like a productive outing nonetheless with all these pretty shots.

Babooshka said...

The imagery is gorgeous and relaxing but the closed mouth fish due to cold stunned me. I have never heard of that before. You just learn much blogging.

JOE TODD said...

Great shots.. I'm planning a fishing trip to Canada for this summer Plan to get some shots of the Canadadian skies

Sylvia K said...

Marvelous shots, FG, as always! Love the first shot, beautiful composition! Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!

These make me want to take a trip up to the lake. It's not as if I don't have enough photos (smile). There's just something about it that's calming too.

TCKK said...

So beautiful!!!

Oz Girl said...

Very pretty clouds, wonderful shots. I love the goose, it DOES look like he's walking on water. LOL.

Jan K. alias Afanja said...

Nice series! I prefer the first one because of the soft light and the depth in the sky.
Have a great weekend.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Looks like you are experiencing the same weather as we are in central Ontario. I'd say at least the duck and goose are enjoying it. ;-)

EcoRover said...

Canada Goose DOES looks like it's standing on water! Maybe a Hispanic goose, named Jesus? You should have left out the reference to "its rock"--that would have been in keeping with your "guess what?" theme.

Nature Lovin' Super Mama said...

Tom, Looks like you had a wonderful drive to the lake. Great photo's! Happy Friday!

nice captures...of course when one goes fishing there is always a chance nothing will be caught...
have a wonderful weekend.

Shellmo said...

Looked like that goose was doing an imitation of jesus walking on water - lol! Nice photos!

Pam said...

I guess you will have to invent a hook with a built-in warmer for those cool mornings.
Great shots, thanks for sharing and happy fishing :D

alicesg said...

Lovely photo for SWF. Love the photo of the goose relaxing and "standing" on water. Have a nice weekend.

SandyCarlson said...

I never saw a Canada goose quite do that. Amazing. These are wonderful photos.

Tammie Lee said...

wonderful moody images.

Sally in WA said...

It looks like the goose is walking on water!

And what is the old saying about the wind from the east, fishing the least, wind from the west, fishing the best? Or something like that. You must have had an easterly wind that day. But a bad day fishing is DEFINITELY better than a good day at work. :-)

Sherri Kaye said...

Love that 2nd shot!

The Write Girl said...

These are great photos. I love the shot of the Canadian geese. Very nice : )

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

Fishing in the boat like that is such a peaceful way to spend a day.

Arija said...

Nice shots, I bet once you were on the water there was no more time for photography as the fishing bug took over. So nice to see you doing what you truly love.

melandri said...

Anne said...

The sky is not blue, but even more beautiful!!

Dagrun said...

Your skies look a lot like ours (in Norway) these days. (I did not know that fish close their mouth when cold)

Anya said...

Wonderful shots,
my compliments :)))

hip chick said...

Great pictures. love the calm of the lake.

Bonnie Bonsai said...

The early morning sighting almost look like that of an early twilight. Great combo to post: cloud, cloud and water then reflection of the cloud to the water. Great Fishing Guy you are. Sorry that the fish kept quiet when you were around. Clever fish, ain't they?

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Sorry about the fishing, but the photos turned out really nice!

Jack and Joann said...

A dreamy morning sky. Glad to hear you are back in your boat. Summer is here!!!!!!!

Rose said...

Wonderful skies--I love that first one.

Pearl Maple said...

Lovely gentle colors in your sky watch photos this week.

Fishing can be a fun game with nature but only if the fish want to play.

Larry D said...

Wonderful photos! Happy skywatch Friday!

Small City Scenes said...

Lisa Wilson said...

Well hopefully you had a good time even though the fish didn't bite! Great photos.

Evita said...

Very nice images and the added birds are such a treat to any photo! Happy weekend :)

Jeri said...

Wonderful photos - if the fish would have been biting, you would not have had time to take all these fabulous shots!

Glennis said...

Looks like a whole lot of people go fishing at that point, I see many small boats on the beach, maybe the fish had all been fed for the day.
Nice place to sit with fishing rod in hand and mind drifting, while watching the wildlife.

Gretchen said...

Just beautiful! Happy SWF!!!

Tom said...

Hi Tom-

Beautiful skies. I did a little fishing from the dock while we were there in Maine, caught two nice yellow perch. Catch and release, but I was tempted....
