SkyWatch Friday: Green White and Blue

More shots from the road a week or so ago.

I always take a lot of sky shots when I'm on the road and don't have to drive.
There is often so much variety in terms of sky shots when the car is moving.
I also think this time of year tends to be good for clouds against blue which I like.
The contrasting greens from the landscape are also appealing to me.
Even the grays can be beautiful.

The scenes you captured are idyllic, Carver. The green rolling hills spread out for miles and the blue sky filled with endless clouds are a traveler’s dream.

Yup!... such contrasts..... I'm more than a little jealous to be honest as I often see perfect skies while driving but have no opportunity to capture them, thank you for sharing!...:)

I do the same thing Carver. I shoot nonstop. However on some days when I'm more in contemplative mood like yesterday (when my skywatch shots were taken), my husband would wake me up from whereever my mind had taken me and asks why I wasn't snapping at the sky :)

These are all so beautiful, Carver. Spring greens are so wonderful against white clouds and blue sky.

Drives like that are so relaxing. All the fields and open space and skies and soft colors just chase the stress away.

Your skies blue skies with the fluffy clouds look like mine this week, Carver. The bog difference is in the landscapes, because we don't haven any hills or mountains.
Enjoy your weekend!

SandyCarlson said...

Wow, wow, wow. These are pure magic. I am glad you were free to get these.

Beautiful blue sky behind the clouds white.

Barb said...

Some of those clouds have a wonderful spattering effect. Must be a green spring there.

Arija said...

Lovely shots my dear. Mine are from the road as well, it lends itself so to photographing the passing scenery and cloudscapes.
Himself offered for me to drive since it 'must be boring just sitting there'!!! Boring? For me? Never!
