Time for Sky Watching!

It is time for Sky Watch Friday once again. It is almost a habit that is hard to break. I don't have any recent pictures , so I was thinking about ignoring the fact that it was Thursday. It has become such a habit for me, though, that I resorted to some photos taken earlier this year.

They are all taken within a very few miles of each other, and probably within 2 or 3 hours time.
The last two photos here were among my favorites, not saying that the others don't have merit. I just didn't do a good job in the first photo of capturing what I saw and though I have messed around with Photoshop, I cannot seem to recreate what I saw with what I took, so left it the way I took it.
If you want to join Sky Watch, click on the badge at the top or go HERE. It is a lot of fun to see the views from around the world and I am very thankful to the team that keeps this running. The team is made up of : Klaus, Sandy, Ivar, Wren, and Fishing Guy. Sky Watch Links officially open today at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Really nice sky horizont...

Nice weekend to you from Anne in Norway.

Louise said...

They are ALL pretty. I LOVE the first ones. And I don't care if you took them 20 years ago! Beautiful. (I understand the habit, too. I feel like I'm missing out when I don't post.)

Beautiful sky. I love the round barn on a previous post. That is really neat.

Beautiful share - thank you! My favorite is where the clouds are boiling out of the sky in the 3rd shot. That's just stunning. The great thing about sky shots is that it doesn't matter WHEN you take them - they're still amazing. Happy SWF!

Grat shots, looks like there's something brewing, too?...those big heaps of 'mashed potates' behind the trees

Texas Travelers said...

Well done.

I love them regardless of when you took them. Remember photos have no expiry date. I do post mostly from my archives.

happy weekend.

Beautiful sequence of shots. I love the sky over the field and road.

ilanadavita said...

Great selection, especially the second and third one.

Tabib said...

The second last pic is great.
The clouds formation and the sun that shine on it, look like a smoke from a ship.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Lovely skies. I always enjoy shots over farmers' fields, that's for sure. And I get a get a kick out of your road shots, so much that I've stated taking a few myself. ;-)

Arija said...

joie said...

i am really skywatching this time.. Great collection of sky photos.

Reader Wil said...

Great series of photos. I agree with you that a photo doesn't exactly turn out the way you want it to. At least that happens with mine.

Babooshka said...

How the sky changes, lovely shots, but he last one is awseome, so spacious.

Mary said...

I think that all of them are wonderful, but I do like those last two a lot!

Linda said...

That's the great thing about skywatch - most of the time you have plenty you haven't shared before. I like the really white clouds in the last pictures.

Pearl Maple said...

Roose: I'm going to say outstanding on that third shot. It is really special Four was fighting awlfully hard for my favorite but three won.

Wren said...

Lovely! I'm glad you decided to participate, and older photos are always welcome. The second one with the open road ahead is my favorite.

Tricia said...

Oh Wow, it looks like an explosion behind the house in the 3rd shot. I like them all, but I have to say the 3rd one just stands out to me!

Jules said...

All of them are great. i guess that is the beauty of SW - the sky is a changing palette all the time.

Laurie said...

Very nice "sky" shots. I too like the last two better for their contrasting kind of clouds. But, every sky is unique and worth a shot!

Neal said...

Beautiful shots Rose!!!

dot said...

Wonderful pictures! My favorite is the third one. Love that cloud!

CharmaineZoe said...

Great photos, I particularly like the 2nd one, the clouds look like they could be in Close Encounters of the Third Kind and the composition is nice with the road going off to the horizon and the telegraph poles and wires following it :-)
