Sky Watch #28

We finally got some clouds in. It looks nice and rainy but it's not doing much - an occasional drop of rain or two. I hear the mountains are getting some snow though. that should make for a nice view when the sky clears.


And then there is the occasional small airplane that flies over the lake from the nearby airport. That's my sky today.

A great picture of the clouds. I also liked the picture of the plane.

I envy the pilot flying over that beautiful looking lake :) Must be quite a view from up there.
Have a great weekend!!!

That looks like really scenic country. I would think that blue sky is the norm, that sometimes makes a few cloudy days a welcome relief.

napaboaniya is right..
There must be quite a view from up there.

Very nice shot of the clouds.

Up here in the north, we received more than two drops so far. But of course I want more. WE need more.

Lovely shots.

I like the airplane pic, looks like the clouds are about to swallow it up.

Airplane over the island is very poetic. Something timeless from another era in it.

It looks like you were in for quite a storm here TB. We have been having rain everyday for almost 2 months now, but I am loving it. :)

Lovely, peaceful sky. I hope you get the snow you're looking for.

Clouds = drama. Love it!

I wish you'd get some rain! It's so sad when the news talks about how tinderbox dry Southern California is in the summer so I wish rain for you now to percolate into the soil. ;-)

Good sky watch, our rain comes in the form of a solid these days.

Snow makes for good shots, but your sky shots are great, wide open skies.

Tarolino said...

Such grand images. There is great beauty in the first one but my favourite is the plane just about to be engulfed by the low clouds. Such lovely timing on that shot.

Ypur arboretum image below is gorgeous.

Your sky is very nice. beautiful shot!

Arija said...

Nice shots, both of them.

Mary said...

A nice paradox...the "heaviness" of the clouds (which are in reality light) and the "lightness" of the plane (which is in reality heavy)!
