SkyWatch Friday: In between late August storms


The first shot was taken Wednesday when there was a break in between storms and briefly pleasant air temperatures. I took this shot standing on top of the Shelley Lake Dam facing towards the bridge.

The second shot was taken on Tuesday, also in between storms with pleasant air temperatures for a change, but I was standing on the bridge facing towards the Dam for this one.

What a contrast! Such beautiful skies and reflections in the first shot and then there are the beautiful grumpy ones, but you have to love them all. They bring so much variety into our lives! Have a wonderful weekend, Carver!

Lovely shots, both of them, but I couldn't help wondering where the Shelley Lake Dam would be, so I tried Google. Going to take me a long time to learn to do that instead of asking "Where is that?"
Have a happy Friday.

The reflections in the first shot are wonderful, Carver. It sure turned dreary for the second...but actually it's pretty in it's own way.

Arija said...

Nice contrast between the two shots. I love the first one with those fluffy white cloudlets reflected in the dam.

Have a great day!

Beautiful skies, lovely clouds,I know that the weather has been trying for much of the country. I hope that fall will bring with it pleasant weather but it is hard to predict these days.

All things considered, I'm not even complaining about the weather this week. Or last week for the most part. Anything would have been an improvement!
