Sky Watch Season # 4 Episode # 23

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 on Thursdays. SWF is run by Klaus, Louise, Wren, Sandy, Sylvia and myself.


The Winter skies can be all gray at times with not much to show. A lone crow in the top of a tree calls to its friends. The haunting caw, caw, caw, with no answers.


Then there are some days when there is a mixture of blue, gray clouds and light at sunrise.


The sunsets are the same as the sun barely breaks through the clouds before setting. This could have been a beautiful show with less of the gray.


Visit some of the other great skies that are at the above link.

I like the bottom photo with the sunshine peeking through near the horizon. It has been grey here too although the sun does come out occasionally. In fact it's brilliant today. ;-)

Reader Wil said...

Your sunsets are terrific! We haven't had any beautiful sunsets lately. There were either too many clouds or the sky was dull gray like today! Have a great weekend!

JOE TODD said...

Good shots. You found more blue and color than I could. Good job

Beautiful shots as always Tom. Love the silhouette of the crow.

Ah, the wonders of the changing skies. Nice sunset Tom.

A good combination of colors in the sky, Tom. This is the time of year when the sky colors change hourly!!!!!

I like the mix of blue and gray in the second photo. We get a lot of days like that. Love the solitary crow.

susieofarabia said...

I especially love the skies in the 2nd photo - really beautiful! I like the whole feel of that one.

Wren said...

I really can't give these the attention they deserve, with that scene-stealing mallard up top! A double helping of fun and photography.

:)

Julie said...

That crow is all puffed up in his cold and bleak loneliness. He cuts a magnificent figure at the top of that bare tree.

Kilauea Poetry said...

I think at times we're a lot like that crow! ha. The silhouette is great and I really like the middle one too. The skies over here are full of volcanic emissions at the moment. Still, that's a nice sun. Tomarrow we'll be heading over to the other side of the Island. Generally it's worse but we will soon see. Have a great weekend-

Darla said...

These are very good...been gray everywhere I think..still love your header the Best!

It is great fun to see the different views folks find to share with us in Sky Watch Friday, the first photo is very artsy.

I love the variation in your skies. It's great to see the crow balance in top of the tree.
Your header is simply wonderful.

Actually, I think you got a wonderful picture of the sunset. But I am glad you occasionally gets some blue in your gray skies. I wish we would see some blue as well.
