Sky Watch Friday Season # 4 Episode # 14

Sky Watch Friday this is the place. 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. You can link a 2:30 PM EDT. SWF is run by Klaus, Louise, Wren, Sandy, Sylvia and myself.

This is a view from a few weeks back over the soccer fields. It was the last great day for sky shots for a while. There are a lot of shapes in these clouds.
A lone Turkey Vulture circled above looking for something to eat.
This is a look at a Texas sunrise that Bro, my brother-in Law, sent me. He certainly caught a beauty from his patio. He lives in the Austin area.
You can see a lot of great skies above.
