SkyWatch Friday: A feather boa let loose on the sky

Normally I try to choose one shot for Skywatch Friday. This week I'm making an exception for the feather boa let loose on the sky.
These shots were all taken during about fifteen minutes on March 5, walking around my neighborhood.
The sky was a vibrant blue and the feather boa fluttered and stretched and roamed the sky.
I don't know when I've seen anything quite like it. The more I walked and looked up the more it took on a life of its own.
I love this time of year when the sky is the bluest of blue and anything against it stands out so well.
Blue skies are still a treat because most weeks we are continuing with as many or more rainy days than sunny ones.
I think blue skies are enhanced when something like a feather boa is tossed across it.
I guess I'll end with a couple more shots although I'm still not sure if this post includes my favorites.
Kind of hard to choose photos when the sky puts on a never ending show. That's why I usually only post one for sky watch because each week I take so many sky shots.
For other skies across the world please visit the home of SkyWatch Friday.

WEll done sweet friend, it's wonderful!

Carver said...

Thank you and an interesting question about what music I'd choose. I think I'd probably go with part of Vivaldi's Four Seasons.

Mojo said...

I don't blame you for puttin gon the show. I don't think I could have picked a favorite from this lot either. Nicely done!

Daryl said...

Spectacular! That is such a wierd cloud!

overtiredmum said...

Brilliant title for the post. You need Dewdrop to tell you the science bit (I'd like to know!).

I'm with you on the struggling to limit the number of photos - every week I think just one - can never manage it though. xo

eden said...

Great shots. Very beautiful cloud formations.

Sylvia K said...

I love your sky's feather boa!! And that's the perfect description! I wouldn't have been able to choose just one of these shots! So glad you posted them all! So gorgeous! And, yes, it looks like spring with your rich blue skies! Have a wonderful weekend, Carver!

Very cool shots you're sharing with us on SWF this week. Will be wonderful if each day we're greeted with such sky :)
Have a good weekend Carver!

Jan K. said...

What in awesome serie of shots, Carver.
It's always great to see the wind play with this kind of featherlike clouds.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend!

Manang Kim said...

It's spectacular! It looks like a white feather but it's clouds, nature has its own beauty and I see that every Friday ^_^

Sky Watch Friday

nonizamboni said...

These are AMAZING clouds! I'm speechless. . .except to say that your did a great job!

Arija said...

I am so glad you did not limit it to just one shot. It would have been criminal to withhold all that beauty from the rest of us. That feather boa was certainly leading your on and understandably irresistible. How many did you take in all. My beat total for a single sunrise up to now has been 144.

Sharodindu said...

it looks like a cloudy backbone in the sky!
nice shot :)

hrg at sacredruminations said...

Hugs and blessings,
