Sky Watch - Post 56

Just another pretty sky

I haven't been out and about this week to photograph anything particularly "interesting," so I just stood in my front yard and snapped a photo of the evening sky. This is just as it came from the camera; Mother Nature has an always changing and amazing palette.


Sky Watch is brought to you by our friends Imac, Klaus, Sandy and Tom. Visit the Sky Watch Friday home page anytime after 7:30 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time on Thursday (that's 1:30 p.m. Central Daylight Time here in the U.S. -- if you're in the U.S.A. you can figure it out from there.) You'll be amazed at all the wonderful photos from around the world. And, if you have time, it's nice to leave a comment on their blog site to let them know you enjoyed their Sky Watch photo.
Happy Sky Watching!

I think some of the best pictures are taken right outside our door. This one is beautiful. I used to make cards. I have a great stamp collection and should give it a shot again. It was such fun. I now bead jewelry, but blogging is pretty much taking up a lot of my free time. I bet you make some beautiful cards! Happy SWF!!

Titania said...

This is for sure a beautiful photo of the sky above you. It shows one doesn't have to travel far to get the best pictures!
Thank you Pat for you visit to my SWF.

Marvin said...

Hey, what happened to your profile photo?

Funny thing. This past week, I was thinking about clouds. Always changing... every formation your eyes catch is an original creation. That in itself is a marvelous thing, wouldn't you agree.

Back to your profile... I like that you're so involved in your church. May you be a blessing to Christ and the rest of His people.

Maria said...

So beautiful!

Raven said...

Beautiful shot! I love the wonderful golden-pink that clouds get. These are stunning.

dot said...

This was my intention when I started Sky Watch..to post what you see and that is what you did. Beautiful!

And a beautiful sky to go with it. Thanks for sharing. For my contribution I chose a mackerel sky. I invite you to come see both of my posts as well. -- Margy
