SkyWatch Friday: Mix from April and May

Looking back at my photos from April, I was struck by the clouds against blue sky.

The first three shots are all from April, 2011.
I always enjoy photographing the water tower near the office buildings in downtown Durham.
The rest of the shots were taken in May. I left my camera in the hotel when we went out to eat one rainy night in the mountains. Of course I looked out the window and saw a rainbow and realized I didn't have my camera but I did have my cell phone with it's inferior camera. Lousy shot but a beautiful rainbow.
I love the wispy clouds that look like a veil to me.
The next shot is a sunset from my bedroom window.
Last but not least a hawk in a pine tree.

I love the rainbow and the hawk looks so tall and strong there.

I'm glad you thought of a way to capture that rainbow! Neat shot of the hawk!

Dee said...

Really like the hawk.

Judy said...

The rainbow is wonderful, as ever, even with the phone rather than a camera, but my favourite shot is the sunset! I love the tranquil colours!

The rainbow in a purple-hued sky really captures my imagination. Lucky that you had the cell phone to record the moment. Technology can be a handy tool when it works as it should. Also, had recent issues with leaving comments. A glitch that will resolve itself, I'm sure. :)

Beautiful photos from you. I think the picture with the rainbow was really cool with the reflections. And the Hawk is such a beautiful bird, great to see :)

Leaving the camera behind doesn't sound like you, Carver! Thank goodness the cell phone recorded that beautiful rainbow.
I love the shot of the hawk in the tree. Fabulous!

Beautiful shots all. I would call those wispy clouds angel hair and the rainbow really is a blessing.

The sunset from your bedroom window is just superb.
