Sky Watch - Post 48

I don't know if it's because I've just been to a worship service, but I always have an inclination to look UP when I walk out of the church building into the parking lot. Is it coincidental that I nearly always see a beautiful sky?

SKY WATCH is brought to you by our friends Tom, Sandy, and Imac, and the new home page of Sky Watch Friday may be found here.
I invite you to visit the Sky Watch postings of several hundred folks from around the world. Links on the home page are added starting at 7:30 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time (England) on Thursdays. Enjoy!

you could almost term it
a prophetic sky!

Michelle of Rambling Woods said...

First visit..I like the colors...

Julie said...

You have captured what you have seen very well. And it is nearly always worth while looking up. I now notice the sky all the time and sometimes feel like a storm-chaser.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Seems an appropriate time to be looking skyward. How nice you ar rewarded!

kjpweb said...

Beautiful. It's always the 1st thing I do when I get out - look up!
Cheers, Klaus

I always enjoy looking up up up.... but then I always end up missing the odd coins that people drop on the ground! LOL
Great shot!

That too often has happened here.
Whenever I see trace of aircraft in the sky.
Before not happened.
I believe that airlines should in that explanation, because we do not know to what extent these tracks lead us to the burning of the ozone layer.

Jim said...

Hi Pat, you found a very pretty formation after church this time.
Our 'little' Whopper was welcome food after being on the road and our museum visit. The veggies were good for us too.

Such a fascinating sky to look up at - I love that column of pink-tinged clouds. Very nice!!

afeatheradrift said...

I'm going to drop by Pat. I'm not sure I can load it with a lot of pics but I'll give it a go. I've got my camera downloading and such now, so I'm enthusiastic about posting some of mine. Your photos are always good, mine are well, lol. So much for an older digital camera,--nine years old, but still clicking away.!

"JEANNELLE" said...

Lovely, Pat! Many different patterns going on. Keep looking up!!

Pearl Maple said...

Great photo for Sky Watch Friday, it is a bit funny that since participating we all seem to be looking up and enjoying more often.

Thanks for your kind comments earlier on my blog.

Leora said...

And what a colorful, lovely sky you captured by looking up.

Quiet Paths said...

That is lovely; being in touch with God makes us more open to beauty, perhaps?

Snap Catch said...

Happy weekend! Perfect one for SWF! We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon.... Mine's up too hope you can drop by...

juliana said...

gosh, what an interesting sky!

me ann my camera said...

Lovely skies and how nice to view them when they are as beautiful as these are.

The soup looks wonderful.

HAHA, I think the sky IS always beautiful, even if black or misted out of view ;) That photograph of yours sure is spectacular sky!

Familia Khuletz said...

Now that's a wonderful shot!

Hope you can hop by my SWF post HERE. Happy weekends!

alicesg said...

Nice SWF photo. Dont we love the clouds. It always have different shapes and take one's imagination to wonder what they looked like. Have a nice weekend.

Rachel* said...

It may be that, but it also might be God's "thank-you" for worshiping and praising him. That is neat, a lovely sky. Great shot.

Titania said...

One always can marvel at the sky how beautiful it is. I too love taking pictures of the sky. Yours is very nice. Thank you for your comment on my sky watch. By the way, the soup looks delicious, getting hungry!

Whitney said...

This is a great cloud picture! This sky is beautiful and you captured it so well!

Kim said...

Gorgeous colors, great capture!!
Happy SWF!

Louis la Vache said...

"Louis" prefers to think that it is NOT a coincidence that you see a beautiful sky when you look up as you come out of a worship service...

Lori said...

This is lovely..and so much going on. the sky is truly amazing and this shows it off well.

Louis la Vache said...

Pat - that brioche bread recipe takes time but not much effort. The time is in the rising. The actual amount of time you spend making it is very small.

I've been having BIG problems with Blogger today - it is causing my browser to crash and the background graphics on my recipe blog and my blog about France have gone missing....

(Editor to "Louis:" I'm about to faint! This is the first time I've seen you write a comment in the first person.

"Louis" to Editor: The first person I'm going to tell to take a hike is YOU!

HFD60 said...

I have gotten some of my best sunsets either on as Sunday evening after services or prior to Wednesday evening services. Although my turquoise sky was not one of those.
