Skywatch Friday: Looking up

We've had a lot of gray skies this week but whenever I see blue my camera is ready.

I'm relieved that some of the green still looks healthy although there is an increasing amount of brown from the searing heat.
I love to see a hole in the sky where blue is trying to push out.
I can't believe July is almost over and it can't end soon enough for me.
I think the cloud below looks like it is smoking out the top of its head.
Nice seeing some of the crepe myrtle is still doing fairly well.
The tree in the next shot is a Pecan tree.
Below are some cotton ball clouds.
More crepe myrtle with a bit of sky because I photograph those trees a lot when they bloom.
Last the birds on the church steeple with a gray sky which to be honest is what the sky has looked like the majority of the time lately. It only seems like there is a lot of blue when I look through my photographs because I don't take as many pictures of the gray but run out with my camera the minute it turns blue.

thank you for sharing. I hope the your skies stay as blue as these photos.

Lovely skies and clouds and they do make the perfect backdrop for your beautiful, colorful crepe myrtle! Love them! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Carver! Enjoy! Happy SWF!

I like the giant blowing smoke - I think he is lying on his back - you can see his lips and his nose!!
And the birds on the steeple - nicely arranged!
I find I take a lot of photos when the sky is gray, because then I don't have the bright sunlight messing with my exposures...

What lovely skies. I mourn the end of July because school and work starts up again towards the end of August.

Your post give me a case of the very happy blues. Your skies are delightful. The myrtle is gorgeous, too. It's a treat to see in person, too. Exotic for me.

I love your profile photo, too!

Lovely shots of the clouds in their many forms--'specially the cotton balls.
Hasn't this been a weird summer?
Happy weekend!
