Sky Watch - Post 81


Not a cloud to be seen anywhere today! Hooray!

We've had quite enough rain lately, thank you, so it's nice to look out my front door this morning and see clear, blue skies. To keep you from having to look at a totally blue photo, I included a couple of trees in my shot. Thanks to cooler weather, the maple tree across the street is beginning to get a few tinges of fall color. For some interesting information on what causes changes in foliage color, visit Jeannelle's post today on her blog Midlife by Farmlight .

Sky Watch was created by Dot and is now 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

Our sky is also nice and blue today, from the storm that blew through on Sunday.

Beautiful! I just wish the signs of Fall didn't lead to those colder winter days though.

After starting out all cloudy, the sun is shining here and the blue skies have replaced the cloudy beginnings. Have a good day.

Hi, Pat!

Your photo is crisp and beautiful! Yes, I can see the maple changing color and that's always a nice contrast with evergreen foliage!

Thank you for the link to my leaf-changing info post! I just found that little article to be so interesting.

Nice photo. I like the blue sky almost as much as I like mine.

My SkyWatch Friday photos are on my Canon Pixels Blog.

I have reintroduced Better Blog Writing but pulled a hamstring muscle and have not been able to get a lot done.

I know juts how you fell but we're still waiting for our beautiful blue sky like this.

It is a rare and beautiful thing to see the sky so blue. I like that you included the trees for contrast, though I once took a photo of pure, blue sky. It didn't impress anyone... I needed a point of reference. Nice work here.

SandyCarlson said...

That is one beautiful and intense blue, to be sure!

Chrisss said...

It's nice to see your blue sky as mine was cloudy and filled with dark clouds all day. Happy SWF!

Laura ~Peach~ said...

MEDITERRANEAN KIWI said...

we had skies like this for so long we got tired of it...
hania is now entering autumn mood

Aileni said...

A September sky. Like the spring they can be bluest... so can those frosty skies of winter, come to think of it. I can them Hedge Sparrow eggshell skies.

RuneE said...

I can tell you where all your clouds went - over here...

Beautiful blue of an autumn sky is always beautiful.

Greyscale Territory said...

Clear blue sky always feels like a symbol of inspiring happiness! Lovely pic!

Jim said...

I love a clear blue sky. Usually means great weather.

Gallicissa said...

I know how good it feels to have nice blue skies like that following our monsoonal highs.

Lovely capture, Pat!

Merisi said...

Happy blue skies for as long as you wish for! :-)

Regarding the skeins of birds on my blog, they were taken around Lake Neusiedl, which is a birders' paradise, especially during bird migration season. There were so many birds to observe there last weekend, starlings, swallows, geese, and birds of prey, all on their travel southwards. I even watched a skein of swans flying overhead! Too bad I did not recognize the noise of their wings until it was to late to grab my camera to get a decent picture (then my zoom is too weak anyway, to get close enough for really great close-ups).

nina said...

We're getting the first feel of fall, too. Cool nights I love!

magiceye said...

Oh Pat this is so lovely! I enjoy your photos so much. You are quite the photographer! I can see the professionalism that you exhibit more and more. Thanks for the treat.

JC said...

Oh, Pat this is a lovely picture. I hope you post more of that maple tree as it turns colors this fall. Have a great weekend.

Whitney said...

A good tree addition to this completely blue sky.

Beatiful blue sky!!

Wren said...

Don't you love days like this? Your photo really captures the feel of the clear blue skies.

Misty Dawn said...

What a gorgeous day! I'd be out on many walks on a day like this!

rhymeswithplague said...

Well, I thought I left a comment earlier, but apparently it went off into the void (that big bit-bucket in the sky).

Great photo, Pat, with such vivid, brilliant colors!

I wonder, are you and I the only ones *singing* the caption? It is, after all, the second line of an old popular songs from the 30's, "Blue Skies."

Again, great job! I loved the red, the blue, and the green together.
