Sky Watch Fridays #43

Sky Watch Friday is doing really well. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were over 330 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post.

The week has been cloudy but no rain until today. It all went a little south and circled around us. This was a photo from the neighborhood as the Sun tried to break through.
The day before while cloudy was considerably brighter. I went to the ponds to get some Canada Goslings. When I saw this reflection I immediately thought, Sky Watch.
You can see a lot of great skies above.

Oh pretty is the combination of green green grass and water reflection.

Beautiful! The second one is very artistic!

Tarolino said...

I find clouds always fascinating. Black, white, grey or pink. They are all quite special to watch.
The pond with the reflection is ever so pretty but I must confess what I really fell for this time was your other post with the chipmunks and squirrels. Lovely critters they are and such nice clear photos of them too.

Thanks for your comment to my GH picture.

Rune said...
