Sky Watch Friday # 59

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

I don't always have blue skies when on the lake but as long as there is no lightning I'm game to be out there. Click on the photo and see the Cormorants setting on the big orange buoys and a seagull on the aerator platform.
Have fun seeing some great skies.

Hi Fishing Guy,
A boat in the middle of the lake - it's got to be good anytime - even under overcast skies!

My post is here: Carletta’s Captures.

I really like that deer. It looks like it just ate your salad.

Interesting catch of the birds decorating your lake!

Don't suppose it has to be sunny to go fishing.

Pretty cool - so is the deer and especially the Black Squirrel below!

A sky doesn't have to be blue to be pretty!
Happy fishing.

4 spots of colour there Tom.

That's a beautiful shot. I love how the lake looks so silver.

Great shot! Glad you said to enlarge it!

You got a great capture of all the birds on the buoys. The seagull is pretty neat, too!

Tipper said...

So peaceful.

Naturegirl said...

To be near water is most relaxing and calming!Have a great weekend!

Fun to see the cormorants on the buoys. Actually most of the summer our skies looked much like the ones in your photo (until recently) but all of the sudden we've got clear blue skies and sunshine making it HOT just as kids return to school. Isn't that always the way.
Hugs and blessings,

Kilauea Poetry said...

That header is too much..makes me forget your skywatch pic..ha..very nice! Hope you have a relaxing weekend.

SandyCarlson said...

That looks so peaceful and pleasant.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Becky and Gary said...

These clouds are getting to be all too familiar. The air has a hint of fall too.
This lake looks like a good fishing spot.
Happy SWF.

I like cloudy skies just as much as clear ones. They have so much dimension.

alicesg said...

Lovely scenery and it looked like a storm coming. It's been raining heavily here for the last couple of days. Have a nice weekend.

TSannie said...

I thought cormorants were strictly shore birds - a fresh water pond now and again, but salty sea preferred. Learn something new every day! Nice SWF pic!

TCKK said...

Cool picture! I love almost any picture with water and I like the deer in your header photo too!!!

Sally in WA said...

Looks serene, gray skies and all. And like you said, as long as there isn't any lightning, it's great to be out on the lake.

Arlene said...

i can feel peacefulness contemplating on this lake shot. thanks for sharing, Fishing Guy!

have a nice weekend!

Pietro said...

Great scenery, fantastic sky, Tom.

Jo Castillo said...

Ah, so beautiful.

Barb said...

Hi FG,
It looks like a peaceful - though gray - day for fishing. Hope you got some bites.

Luke said...

Time on the lake is enjoyable no matter the weather.

Rajesh said...

Very beautiful shot.

Mike said...

Broody shot :)

Regina said...

Great shot!

JOE TODD said...

Maybe the calm before the storm. Have a great day

Mark Kreider said...

Truly wonderful photo, for the first second I thought it was b&w then the contrasting red of the buoys and the subtle green of the trees became apparent. Very fine detail with much to see and enjoy, and, of course, you know how I love a water shot!

Bhavesh Chhatbar said...

Beeeautiful lonely place.

Nature is So Beautiful

Lorac said...

Sometimes the best times for fishing when it is overcast! Looks like the sky for most of our summer here too!

Tammie Lee said...

glad there was no lightening while you were out! What a thought.

Sreddy Yen said...

How serene and placatory! It must be wonderful to sit in the middle of this lake on a little raft :o)

Louise said...

I'm with you about being there as long as there isn't lightning. The lake is just happiness (even if we derive different types of pleasure from it.) And all the birds you see are wonderful.

Abraham Lincoln said...

Howdy...I was here the other day and left a comment but came back to thank you for visiting.

Thank you very much for visiting My Birds Blog and for the comment you left me there about my Coopers Hawk photograph. My Birds Blog

Pearl Maple said...

Blue skys are a pretty scene but nature treats us to so many different views to enjoy, cormorants and a lovely decorative accent for this view.

flyingstars said...

Simply beautifully captured shot....lovely!
