SkyWatch Friday: Moving too fast

A few trees are moving too fast towards spring due to the crazy weather.

Although most of the trees are naked, I do worry about ones that are starting to look to spring.
I am enjoying the variety of sky shooting opportunities.
It seems like it's always gray until I glance at my weekly sky photos and realize there is a lot of blue in between the storms.
The Dogwood may not do very well this spring because I've noticed a lot of the tips of the branches have been broken off.
I think I prefer the bare branches of winter to almost any of the tree cycles.
I like how the light can bronze the branches like the shot below.
I am missing snow this winter. I don't want an extreme storm but I enjoy a pretty snow.
I feel like I'm saying the same things each week when I post my sky shots but that's because there isn't much new going on.
I keep shooting the hodgepodge sky and wonder about the bizarre weather.
I am starting to bore myself although I don't find the sky boring.
I run out of things to say so perhaps I should just post one shot and not try to write in between shots.
Maybe I'll try that next week.

Oh, that last shot would make a wonderful backdrop for a mystery. Dark and brooding with a hint of light on the horizon.

Beautiful shots! We have had no real winter here either. It's a bit scary to see trees in bud in January.

What gorgeous blue skies! We had some buds coming out in December because it was so mild... the snow has put a stop to that now.

I love all photos especially the last one. Happy sky watching.

I especially like those last few shots with the silhouettes and the one of the weather vane.

Wonderful captures as always, Carver! I do love those BLUE skies, but like you, I worry that January is too early to see buds on the trees! The weather everywhere has been so bizarre the past several seasons!! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Fantastic views of the sky with those naked trees.

nice shots. It is not good if they come out with leaves now. It is way to early. I m happy with the little amount of wnow that we have. But I would like a few days with -10degC. I need to defrost my freezer. :(
Have a great weekend.

Beautiful sihouettes against the skies!

Laura said...

beautiful photos is strange here too...I see buds and a vine growing green through the snow the other morning!

Ebie said...

The first tree looks like a promising abundance of spring flowers!

I am definitely with you....I want nice snow but NOT a big one. Our tree and daffodils are doing the same as yours and it is a bit scary. At times like this I remember my aging mother saying...” That “Sputnik” thing should never been sent up. It is going to mess with our weather!” I still get a chuckle out of that one. Maybe it is Global Warming...that is frightening. Your shots are beautiful. You gave us a flawless series today. So glad I didn’t miss it. Genie
