Sky Watch Season # 4 Episode # 17

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 3:00 PM EDT. SWF is run by Klaus, Louise, Wren, Sandy, Sylvia and myself.

I made a trip to Oil City, PA for a friends funeral. I couldn't resist this photo of the water tank high on the side of the mountain above the town.
Halloween night and here is a look at the full moon through the trees that was putting on quite the show.
My Brother-In-Law, Bro, was also capturing a full moon in a colorful sky.
There are a lot of great skies to visit above.

I love your header.
Being an oilie guy I like the picture of the oil tank on the hill. I hope that it doesn't have any oil in it. With no dikes it would make a huge mess if it leaked.
Great picture with the moon. Very otherworldly.

Carletta said...

I find moon shots such a challenge! You have a great post and captured it! Pat yourself on the back!

Pietro said...

Three interesting shots, Tom. In the last one the moon and the shaded colors of the sky are really amazing.

That hillside is just waiting for the snow to make it pretty again now that all the leaves have fallen off.

Bro: You are an ace. That is a GREAT picture.

Luke said...

The nighttime one is my favorite!

Your header is wonderful! That Oil City tank shot is a great view and the moon and sky color...beautiful.

Sandi McBride said...

Love the water tank, too...there is nothing quite so special as the sky mainly because it is always changing...no scene is the same...

Janie said...

I love the moon shots. The light on the tree in the foreground is great in the first - very Halloweenish. The color on the clouds in the second one is magnificent.

Louise said...

Something about the trees around that water tower are really nice. Bro's clouds were quite showy!

Pearl Maple said...

The water tank does add an interesting shape does add an interesting detail to the horizon. Halloween did turn on some fun skies for you. Thanks for your kind comment on my blog earlier.

Wren said...

I think the bird in your header is a cousin of the one in my post, mate. :)
