SkyWatch Friday: Blue Skies Abound

I managed to shoot the moon several times this week before sunset.

The wispy clouds below make me think of fairy dances.
I think yellow leaves are my most favorite of the autumn colors.
There is something lovely to me about looking through the colorful leaves at the lake.
I like the sparkly path across the lake provided by the sky.
I think the leaves on the tree below look like red stars although that will be more noticeable when there aren't as many leaves on the tree.
The dogwood leaves are more orange when they first change colors but at the stage below they are burgundy.
I can't believe how many shots I've taken of the fall leaves this year.
I always take a lot but this has been a long colorful fall. The blue sky is such a good background for autumn leaves.

You are absolutely right that the blue sky makes a good background -- your photos are stunning. I didn't realize how lovely the dogwood leaves are in the Fall -- I need to pay more attention to them. I always loved it when Fall lasts a long time!
