Sky Watch Friday

This is the wonderfully cloudy sky as I was driving up the 15 Freeway past Norco, going uphill as I headed to the Wine and Balloon festival last month in Temecula. I loved the way the sky looked over the hills on both sides of the freeway. I wish the images really captured the total view. The rolling hills are beautiful when they're are all green after a rain. Now they are all dry but their golden color is still beautiful in its own right.

Those are dramatic skies. The clouds seem to be hovering just above the golden hills. It must be hard to keep your eyes on the road!

It (the sky with clouds) reminds me of the Heaven I was in back in 1976.

Greyscale Territory said...

Fantastic panorama of blue sky and fluffy white cloud! The highway reaching to the horizon seems to add to the dramatic landscape!

Bim said...

I love cheerful skies like that one - I hope the Wine and Balloon festival at the end of this road was suitably enjoyable!

Evita said...

These are so beautiful! Fantastic and so blissful with the road ahead like that so free!

Debo Hobo said...

I always have fun looking for shapes in clouds, elephants in particular.

Happily Retired Gal said...

All three views are lovely and make ME want to drive out to Temecula and on to Hemet to visit with my sister in law.
Hugs and blessings,

Karen said...

Thank you for the several comments our blog. You really know photography! I've always liked your photos but don't know if I've ever commented before this Skywatch. It seems like meeting a new friend. Skywatch Friday has been great for that. See you next week, if not before!
