SkyWatch Friday: Walking with the sky

I was running errands on Monday and hadn't intended to go on a walk, but the sky took me by the hand.

My first idea was to walk up to the dam and take a few shots of the lake but not take the time for a walk.
I was clicking away before I even made it to the dam.
Once I was on the dam I took a ton of shots to capture the variety of clouds in the sky.
I hope we'll get some days with clouds like these once the trees have changed colors.
At this point the trees that are changing are mostly in the woodland part of the trail.
It was hard to narrow down which shots to post because I took so many.
I felt like the sky was putting on a show to keep me from returning to my home office.
I particularly like playing with the reflections in the lake.
All it takes is a slight turn of the camera or a little less or more zoom for a different picture.
The sky led me into the woodland part around the lake.
The sky took me to the bridge where I could look in different directions across the lake.
It was tempting to go ahead and walk around the lake because the reflections on the other side are often good.
However, I didn't have the free time so I contented myself with bridge shots before turning around.
It was also supposed to rain at some point so I didn't want to push my luck.
It is so much fun to sky watch that it would be easy to do it for hours.
I certainly took enough pictures of this particular show.
The good thing about the sky is that it is always changing for my enjoyment.
Now that the trees are changing too that will add another layer of fun.

Thanks for the walk, absolutely beautiful skies for long walks.

Arija said...

What a great not-walk! I can feel your excitement. Such skies with reflections in a still water are like hobgoblins in a marsh, they just lead you on and on . . .
Hope you do go for your walk today though.

wonderful skies. And I spotted some birds here and tehre.
Glad you liked my butterflies. :)

Jackie said...

The sky is guilty of a lot of things, probably accounts for my computer crashing too because of all the sky shots I've put up there.
I get carried away when I start taking pictures of the sky.
Lots of great shots, and the lake will look fantastic when the Fall foliage takes over.

Jeannelle said...

Beautiful series of shots! Glad you decided to take that walk. Happy skywatching!

Absolutely wonderful, Carver. A sky that beautiful simply demands to be photographed. You're so right, it took you by the hand! Well said, and well done.
