SkyWatch Friday: late September 2013

September is flying by like the rest of this year has done.

There are more and more signs of fall each day.

The dogwood trees as well as a few others are always way ahead of oak trees that change into their fall colors much later.

My next door neighbor's weather vane is one of my continual photographic subjects.

I like the way the rooster looks and it's much quieter than a real one.

The moon was playing hide and seek behind the clouds this morning.

I had to wait a while to catch it as the wind moved the clouds.

I've been noticing how the light is changing as the season changes.

This is one of my favorite times of the year for sky watching.

I also look forward to winter when the bare limbs will be against the sky.

I love trees throughout the year but there is something especially beautiful to me about deciduous tree after they drop their leaves.

There are also a lot of evergreens where I live to provide some green in the winter which is also nice.

This is a long post because I had trouble deciding which shots I liked.

There were only three good sky watching days but I took a lot of shots on those days.

When it's windy and there are a lot of clouds against blue, the sky changes so much within seconds.

I also wanted to include the few fall leaves I am spotting.

I've heard that rainy weather leading up to fall doesn't usually provide the best color so I'll be curious if that's true this year. We have had a lot of rain.

i know it's already fall and i haven't enjoyed summer yet.

i know it's fall bec even though our temps are still in the 70s there is that unmistakable fall chill in the air and the air smells like fall.

i like the dogwood leaves shot.

enjoy the first weekend of fall.

My favorite clouds are the little cotton ball ones, Carver, but I can see why you had difficulty choosing. So many beauties.
I love the autumn leaves, too.

I noticed this evening the skies seemed more fall like to me.
You are certainly getting some early signs of fall and beautiful ones at that.
Lovely captures!

Indrani said...

All shots are equally good! Real hard to choose a fav. Love the way you composed the shots of the branches.

All of your cloud and sky photos this week are beautiful. So much fluffy white. And the leaves....so pretty. Ours are turning rapidly and Bud is having to mow them to cut down on my allergies. The coloration of the dogwood leaves is lovely. genie

You have a lot of fall color ...still not much here and it has been a rainy September ...maybe that is why.

I don't know how you could choose which sky photos to post either. They're all wonderful.
