SkyWatch Friday: This week and an old one

The first shot was taken this week and is my official skywatch shot. I thought it looked like sheer fabric was tossed across the sky.

The second shot was taken in January and the sky wasn't that interesting but I thought the little bird was a cutie.

To visit other skies across the world, please go to Skywatch Friday.

I agree that the first shot the sky does look like a sheer fabric.

Yes, I love the first one! We have a lot of those gauzy, sheer looking clouds here in WA and I love them! But I also LOVE the little bird! Marvelous shots! Thanks for sharing and Happy SWF!

Carver: Neat sky shot, the Tufted Titmouse is a great singer in the Spring.

The clouds are amazing. You just have to capture them to remind yourself of their beauty.
Love the bird too.

Rose said...

I agree the bird is cute and worth posting, and I do like that first one. A lot.

Diane C. said...

I love you describe the clouds as being like sheer fabric. I'm glad you included the photo of the titmouse also. We don't see those around here, but I think they are so cute. Happy SWF!

I like your fabric sky! Good capture of the bird in the second photo.

Kerri said...

Beautiful skyshots! Of course I'm partial to the one that shows the Tufted Titmouse. They are cuties!!

Bradley Myers said...

Great sky watch photo, and I like the tufted titmouse.

Ken Reynolds said...

Amazing shot of the sky and clouds in the first photo! I love all of the different faces that the sky puts on.

Laurieluc said...

Those are great. Love the pic of the bird--you had a good lens for that, i need a bigger one. Loved the clouds--

It reminds me of a seersucker tablecloth thrown across the sky for the bird to dine on.

VALKYRIEN said...

A beautiful shot the first one! The bird is so neat!

Sara Chapman in Seattle said...

That first one is a stunner. I LOVE that sky. I've never seen that combo of puffy and wispy. And you are right, the birdie is a cutie. And I love the March Madness one!

Thanks so much for your comment on my Skywatch guest post. Much appreciated.

Indrani said...

The cloud pattern in the first shot is amazing!

Robert V. Sobczak said...

Really great top photo: that's a brilliant blue, and intricate lattice lace of clouds.

napaboaniya said...

I'm seeing a huge blue and white blanket, the kind that I wouldn't mind falling on me from the sky :)

Nice one Carver!!

p/s: I made a mistake at Photo Cache website calling out your name in the comment page.. *blush*

Mojo said...

I love the sprinkle of clouds in the first shot.

And I've actually got one that looks almost exactly like the second one.

Carletta said...

I totally see the sheer curtains - pulled back to watch the clouds dropping cotton balls :)
The little birdie is cute.
Beautiful shots!

Greensboro Daily said...

Wow Carver, great cloud-- similar clouds were sighted over Long Island. That's what makes Skywatch Friday so fun. Seeing the world as the one big place that it is. Happy Friday 13th from your I-40 buddies over in Greensboro

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Great shots, that first one is like sheer fabric!

ViennaDaily said...

Beautiful skies, the first one in particular is an awesome sky...

Dewdrop said...

Oh I love the composition on that first! The cirrus mixed with the cirrocumulus make it so fun, like a popcorn sky. Wonderful shots!

Taj said...

Sarge Charlie said...

Kathy said...

Looking forward to blue sky's here! We must have birds on the brain! I posted birds too.

Michele said...

Oh wow... I really did think the sky looked stunning and you are right! It does look like a lace fabric of some sort laid across... beautiful!!
I hope you are doing well these days...
