Sky Watch From My Front Door



After a scare earlier in the week (Winter Storm Watch) which turned out to give us only a short-lived light ice coating on Monday night/Tuesday morning, we have lots of sunshine today, and not a cloud in the sky! We have much to be thankful for here in central Arkansas when we consider the weather-related trauma occuring in other parts of the U.S., and in other parts of this state. When I looked outside this afternoon, there was not a cloud to be seen anywhere. The blue skies captured by my camera have not been altered in any way. What you see is what we've got.



Sky to the East




Sky to the West

Very brilliant! I love that colour blue! And it's always very good to add trees in a sky watch photo.

Pat wonderful pictures. Even though we got ice believe me when I say we are very thankful it wasn't a repeat from the ice storm of December 2007. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Hi Pat,
The sky is a pretty blue there! Great pics! Thanks for your comment on my blog. We have had ups and downs in our temps. Just as the snow is melting, we get more.

Is it your son's family that moved to Fremont?

Pat,

Good to see you! I was worried that you might have gotten more ice than you wanted. !!!

Wren said...

That's a very intense blue. Skies that color always lift our spirits.

Nothing better after the cold than beautiful blue skies!

Ruth Hull Chatlien said...

Beautiful shots.

I was worried about you when I read how many people lost power in Arkansas. Glad you're ok.

I think those storm watches are meant to inject drama in January. It's an unwritten weatherman policy. Great, blue photos.

No wonder blue is my favourite colour when we are blessed with skies as blue as these. Keep well and warm.

JC said...

Beautiful blue!!! Great skywatch shot. Have a great weekend.

Deb said...

there is something about the silhouette of a tree against any sky that I am just drawn to. nice job..

Tricia said...

I captured some blue skies too, however, we weren't as lucky - we were hit hard! We're still under ice, but it looks like some of it will be melting today! Thank GOD!!!

Lindab said...

Two different shades of blue - how lovely with the filigree effect of the branches.

Denise said...

Crystal clear blue skies, nicely composed with the branches framing your photo. Lovely shot.
