Sky Watch Friday

Just a little offering for Sky Watch. Sky Watch is a meme to join and share your photos of the sky....believe me, I see some awesome shots every time I start visiting.
These top three photos are more from when we went up north last week to Willow Slough and Jasper-Pulaski Wildlife areas.
It was sure awesome to see the sky changing the way it did. And I loved the silhouette effect it gave everything.
Now this bottom photo was taken just last night on the way to Terre Haute...it was definitely on the way to being dark when we decided to run down there. I told Roger I was taking my camera cause I always regretted it when I didn't.
I only took about a dozen shots and this was my pick of them. I was shooting out my side window and when you going 55 mph down a highway, with telephone poles, it is hard to take pictures between them. Or at least it is for me...some of the time. I honestly think that sometimes they are a bit farther apart...but maybe it is that we just aren't going quite the speed limit.

Anyway, if you want to join, or just check out the views from around the world, click on the badge at the top of the page. Also, these photos should all enlarge and I think the bigger they are, the better.

Wow!! What color! The wind turbines are outstanding against that backdrop. The last photo is gorgeous... taken at 55 miles an hour, or not! Great SWF post, Rose.

Great shots and wonderful colors for skywatch Friday.

Thanks for the good words, I love your owl shot, I just have not had that kind of luck yet. You mentioned your sandhill cranes, I have some planned for the next couple of weeks I photographed in Florida.

George said...

Great sunset pictures, Rose! That's quite a wind farm in your first three pictures. I didn't realize you had them up there.

Very nice drive-by shootings, Rose. I especially like the last one!

RuneE said...

Those windmills made terrific silhouettes!

Carletta said...

Awesome Rose!
I love those wind turbines and that last shot is just plain gorgeous! Hard to believe you got that out your side window - impressive.

Mojo said...

Trust me. It's tougher to shoot when you're driving.

Nice job on these -- driving or sitting. Looks like the power station was off line though. What's up with that?

Daniel said...

Beautiful pictures. I like the silhouettes of the windmills makes for a interesting shot.

Carver said...

Those are wonderful skies and I love the mindmills and then the tree against the sky.

Mary said...

Such beautiful skies! Love the windmills. We flew over fields full of windmills coming home from Tucson and I forgot to ever post them. Those giants are so interesting to see both on land and from the air!

Laurie said...

I just LOVE sunset shots! GORGEOUS! Thanks Rose!

A fine series of drive-by shots. The wind turbines are always so deceptively larger than they tend to appear at first glance. Nice post.

Bryan said...

Nice photos! I like the first two when viewed together because the size relations flip flop despite perspective remaining fairly similar. Splendid colors too!

Kilauea Poetry said...

I like the wind turbines-lovely..and that third shot! Also your header is wonderful.

Sally said...

Beautiful pictures!!

Thanks so much for commenting on my blog, and congratulations on becoming a grandmother. It's such a beautiful GIFT! :)

Arija said...

Absolutely wonderful sky shots!

Evita said...

It is so neat to see such an orange hue sky for a change, aside from the typical blue. Great captures!

Red said...

Those are just gorgeous! What a beautiful evening it was with all the clouds and sunset and a touch of fog.

Last nights high speed shot was pretty too. I always regret not taking my camera everywhere too :)

Hello Rose
Loverly Sky Watch post... we have these windmills or Wind Farms as they are know over here... at first I did not like to see them but like telegraph poles and pylons I have got used to them...

Have a great weekend Rose... be happy and be safe.

WoW Gorgeous sunsets!!! It's been a while since I was in Indiana & all those wind turbines weren't there then - there's so many of them in that one shot!

Thank you very much for stopping by & seeing my lil Jilly - I'm so happy I got to see her!!! Today was a really really good day - I got to see Jilly & then my friend from grade school stopped in from Florida to see me too that I haven't seen in a couple of years AND the weather was sooo nice on top of it all!!! Great Day!

Tricia said...

That's what they're called - wind turbines - right?

Small City Scenes said...

Perfect Sky Watch shots. Love the turbines. We have them out here too. Only in Eastern Washington I believe. MB

Bestemor Aud said...

Really nice subjects for Skywatch!
Good shots through the car window! The last one was my favourite - very special clouds, colors and light!

Quiet Paths said...

Super subjects for skywatch; and for going down the road they are really good. I like the colors... it has an other worldly feel to it. Thank you.

dot said...

Really nice pictures! My favorites are the first and last ones.

Naturegirl said...

I saw hundreds of these wind turbines as we drove through Texas!
Sure is wonderful seeing the sunset behind!
