SkyWatch Friday: Mixing it up again

The sky seems to be changing a lot this week both within a day, and from day to day.

First, a day time moon and an evening sunset.
Next an early morning sun, on another day, that almost looks like the moon.
Same morning with the sun trying to break out.
Finally the sun is up and out and shining through the clouds.
Another day below with the sky reflected in the water.
The next two shots were taken the same day as the shot above.
I have been posting a lot of shots from the lake near my house lately. I guess I should try to vary it more but the trails I walk on and the lake I walk around are a good way for me to take pictures and get exercise.
On to another morning walk at the lake.
The rest of the shots are from the same morning as the one above.
I think the touch of red in the shot below looks like a sign of autumn but it's really dead leaves.

Great series of shots..I especially like the second one..we call those clouds "Horse Tails" for they resemble horse tails blowing in the wind.

Thanks for sharing!

Such beautiful captures!

<a href=" Skywatch</a>, have a great weekend ahead!

Wonderful captures, Carver! What would we do without clouds in the sky to give the landscape its meaning. They look awesome reflected in the lake and, depending on where they form around the sky and sun, give each horizon a contrast of hues.

so many beautiful must have had a lovely time photographing each one.

If I had a lake walk like that, I'd be photographing it all the time, too.
I love the shot of the sun pretending to be the moon.

I think this is going to be the best Sky Watch Friday yet. The things I have seen are very encouraging and the photography is spot on. I really admire your photography skills and your critical eye for composition, lighting and texture.

Lots of variety! And the moon again - a lot of people captured it this week! But I love the second shot - the pink wispy clouds of sunset!!
