SkyWatch Friday: Variety on a single walk

There was so much variety in the sky on a single walk I went on this week that I decided to select shots from that one day.

I was prompted to walk because there were some interesting clouds and I thought I might get some good reflections in the lake.
As it turned out the only reflections I got were in the creek on the way to the lake, and I had so many shots for this post I'm skipping them.
Even without reflections of clouds in the lake, the interest for me came in how different the sky looked as my walk progressed.
I like the way at certain points it looked like streamers were tossed across the sky.
At other places the white highlights blended together.
Then the texture starts to have the appearance of a cotton comforter.
I like the naked trees that have dropped their clothes.
Then another soft cotton comforter is crossing the sky.
