Sky Watch - Post 91


October 23 Sky

East, West and South skies here are mostly overcast today, but I did find a spot of blue looking across the street to the Northwest. We're in for some rain later this evening, I believe. It hasn't been cold enough, yet, for the leaves to show much change in color; here in central Arkansas they're still mostly green. I did spot a branch of dogwood in the back garden next door that had some beautiful color and got a photo, but no sky was showing, so that's a post for another time.

Sky Watch was created by Dot and is now brought to you by our friends Imac, Klaus, Sandy, Fishing Guy, Wren, and Tom. Visit the Sky Watch Friday home page anytime after 7:30 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time on Thursdays to see sky photos from around the world. You'll be glad you did.

Nice to see a tree starting to change color with a lovely blue sky and wispy clouds for a backdrop. ;-)
Happy Sky Watch!

Autumn, beautiful colors.
Great shot.

I was in SW Missouri 1-1/2 weeks ago, and the trees looked about like yours do now. They were hoping for frost to add some color, but don't know if they got it yet. We got our first last night.

I like your little patch of blue.

Dewdrop said...

Welcome back, Pat! I've missed you! Love the shot with the colors... We don't get much of that at all down my way.

Lovely, just a blush of color on the trees. Looks very nice against the sky.

I like this picture and how you tell that you looked for a spot of blue. Over here our native trees are also still green or slighty coloring and our americans (such as the Northern red oak) already have lost all their leaves. Have a nice SWF and weekend !

Reader Wil said...

Hi Pat thanks for your visit. Your photo is lovely and shows real autumn weather! I got the idea of "This too will pass.." from Dina in Jerusalem. It's good to know that bad things will pass.

Your leaves look like they're just starting to turn. Beautiful colors.

You have a bit of Autumn foliage in there. I am envious.

Mary said...

A pretty little patch of blue! We could use some of that rain here in NJ. Happy SWF. :)

Louis la Vache said...

Here in the very temperate climate of the San Francisco Bay area, we don't get many of these fabulous fall colors "Louis" is finding around the blogosphere. Nice SWF post, Pat!

Wren said...

Hey, Pat, welcome back to Skywatch! Looks like your seasonal change is a little behind ours.

SandyCarlson said...

That's beautiful. I feel like I could touch those clouds.

Yen said...

fishing guy said...

Pat: I do see some color happening against that blue sky. Up here in Ohio we are in all different stages of color.
Thanks for your wishes and I'm glad you are back.

Gallicissa said...

Wonderful composition to include a lot of details of the fall leaves as well. Happy Sky Watch Friday.

Great colors! We already had the autumn colors and are waiting for the winter to come! Greeting from Finland! :)

RuneE said...

You have got almost the whole spectrum here!

Aileni said...

A little bit of blue can promise much - or be saying goodbye.

Coloradolady said...

beautiful fall picture. Loved it. Happy SWF

B. Roan said...

That is a gorgeous fall sky. BJ

Anita said...

Very pretty... Because we don't have many trees left, we don't get to see the pretty fall colors until we go out of town... my favorite time of year, btw!

Thanks for visiting Prairie Visions!

Shinade said...

Oh my it's really very pretty. I am in Oklahoma so we don't get a real dramatic change at all.

I love the blue sky and also just the hint of a little fall color.

It's very lovely.

My #3 SWF is here.

Happy SWF:-)

D Herrod said...

Very nice being from Texas I really haven't seen the fall leaves very many times.

Pearl Maple said...

Watching the trees change colour at this time of year is a wonderful pastime. Seasons come and go as do pretty skies, always something to look forwad to in mother nature's ever changing display.

Thanks for sharing your view of the sky and your kind comments on my post earlier.

Sweeta said...

It's beautiful shot and nice color!

Robin said...

It's a pretty shot. I enjoyed the story behind it. :)

Carole said...

I never top missing that change of color in the fall. You managed to get a very lovely little patch of blue sky for us here.

Enigma said...

Trees are farther past here in the Great Lakes region. Great contrast in your shot! Wonderful...thanks for sharing!!!

Arija said...

You have enough colour in this shot too and a nice balance of cloud and blue.

Fish Whisperer said...

Lovely fall colors peaking through against a beautiful blue. Have a great weekend.
Cheers

Kahshe Cottager said...

Just a hint of colour as your leaves begin to change. It really makes a great contrast with the blue of the sky. Have a wonderful weekend.
