SkyWatch Friday: Storms and blue

We've had plenty of stormy skies.
I thought this particular storm had a lot of variations in the gray.
The next shot was a late afternoon when the clouds turned pink.
Next is a morning shot when the moon stuck around to play jumping in and out from behind clouds. I kept missing it but finally it stayed away from the clouds long enough for me to capture it.
Next are some sky shots I took on a morning walk.
It started off pretty dark but the sun finally got out from behind the clouds.
Earlier that same morning I had fun shooting mackerel clouds.
Too bad the mackerel clouds were gone by the time I walked as I would have loved catching their reflection in the water.
Even without having water to capture their reflections they were my favorite sky shots over the past 7 days.
This is a great time of the year for skywatching.
The light is changing and is heralding a new season.
So far the changes are subtle but soon they will accelerate.

I have noticed the changes in the light are quite dramatic recently. Great looking mackeral clouds and I always love a glimpse at the moon. Thanks Carver, :)

I miss the energy of a storm much. No rain since about Easter. Rarely a cloud or two. Impressive pictures.

Lovely bright skies, Carver. We have no interesting skies recently -just gray or cloudless skies.

Those blue skies really are amazing!

Carletta said...

You've had stormy skies and crisp blue skies as well!
Love the reflection shot!

Thanks for the link to the Paul Simon video. I had seen it but had forgotten it. I sang the song in high school choir and because we live near the river with lots of bridges it just comes to my mind a lot. :)

I love the changing skies -- they really say Autumn -- and I always love your morning walks. That pond and reflection is beautiful--

Beautiful series, Carver, I think it's wonderful to see all those different clouds in the blue sky in a row.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend.

Absolutely gorgeous!

Hope you'd come and see my sky shots also. Your comment will be greatly appreciated.

Have a great weekend!

You captures so many views of the sky! Those mackerel clouds almost have a herringbone pattern! The blues are gorgeous! They are all really pretty!
