Sky Watch - Post 97





It's a gorgeous, bright, not too chilly Autumn day today. Perfect weather! Not a cloud in the sky this afternoon, so this photo is a Sky and Tree watch. I've been keeping a close watch on our neighborhood trees, monitoring the color change daily. My neighbor has a Sycamore tree in her front yard (the brown-yellow-green leaves on the left of the photo). The tree beyond is also a Sycamore, but the leaves have a more reddish tint. I love Mother Nature!

Sky Watch was created by Dot and is now brought to you by our friends Klaus, Sandy, Fishing Guy, Ivar, and Wren. 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.

The contrast between the colors and leaf textures is so cool - nicely captured. I love watching the fall colors change too. Happy SWF!

Today is about as perfect as a day can be, and with the wonderful fall colors it just puts a smile on my face.

Oh Pat, such a lovely picture! I love the dark blue of the sky, and well, it's a pretty day like that here as well. The last few we shall see no doubt for some time. I love fall, but alas hate winter. LOL. The dogs are in seventh heaven at this time of year, and very woofy, given the rutting season.

Pretty sky. I like the differences in the same type of tree, too.

Looks like the leaves have already changed and winter is on it's way. Beautiful skies where you are :)

Happy Sky Watching!

The lovely autumn tones are always the best.

Blue sky and coloured leaves pretty much guarantees a fresh fall day! Add a crunchy just picked apple to snack on and enjoy the beautiful day!

I imagine this Fall must be the most photographed ever with so many digitals working away.
A good record of an obviously lovely day.

Fall is such a beautiful prelude to what is a cold winter here in Buffalo NY..
