SkyWatch Friday: Mix in the sky

I took the shot below on Monday morning when we had a blue sky for part of the day. The dogwood trees continue to be the main ones giving us some early fall color.

The shot below is one I took Wednesday morning showing the rain which is being dumped from the sky on a very regular basis. My pecan tree which takes up much of the shot is still mostly green with a couple of leaves starting to turn yellow.

It was quite the deluge earlier this week, yeah? Even Tonka didn't want to go out in it. Nice shooting, rain's a tough subject to capture!

We're a little ahead of you here. My oak tree is shedding all over the ground and a couple of maples are reddish yellow.
I love the dogwood against that gorgeous blue sky!
Great job catching the raindrops.

Wonderful shots! The rain is awesome -- in the photo, I'm not eager for the return of the rain, but then we rarely get the big downpours either.

Have a great weekend, Carver!

Love the colors of fall! I've usually lived in places where the seasons are hot and hotter so I miss out on the fall foliage... (sigh)
