Sky Watch Season # 4 Episode # 7

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

I was taking an early morning drive to the PA mountains to do some golfing and these sights appeared to me. The photos are right out of the camera with no editing. This was a really neat cloud formation just before the Sun rose. I see faces on both sides of the cloud. Is the one on the left top giving a warning. It turned into a wonderful day.
The Sun rose as a golden orb lighting up the sky with beauty. I see fire in the sky above the Sun.
Check out the other great skies above.

Oh, so ethereal! Absolutely lovely captures! Usually my cloud pictures don't do the scene I am trying to capture any justice! You did a great job with these images. ~karen

Lovely skywatch photos. The last one is just gorgeous. BTW, I love your green heron header. They are cool birds.

I see both faces, too. The one on the top looks like it's huffing and puffing. Now I just have to comment on your previous post, too.

That fiery sun is amazing! Just beautiful. Your header shot is wonderful too -- nice of you guys to have a contest and share the beautiful results. Is that a night heron? I'll have to scroll down.

The first shot makes me think of a mythological figure breathing life into the day.

Such fiery beauty in the last shot. And the first one made me want to say, Bless you! Looks as if the cloud is sneezing.

Gaelyn said...

I agree with Ladyfi. I too saw the sneeze. These are both awesome captures Tom. A great way to great the day. Hope you had a good game of golf.

Hi Tom! Come out to the North Rim and we can golf the "Meadows" from the entrance station to the developed area... About twelve miles...

Maybe a par 3600... :)
