SkyWatch Friday: Mixed

I caught a pretty sunrise this week.
Since most mornings were rainy it was nice to see a colorful start to that morning.
There were even a few days with some blue skies.
I think on average were have been having 20 percent blue days.
I caught a pretty sunset one day this week too. 
Tuesday morning it was pouring down raining when I had to go to my office in Durham, NC for the day.
I almost didn't take my camera because I thought it was going to rain all day.
As it turned out, I was glad I had my camera with me because by lunch it had stopped raining.
After a few minutes during lunch, the clouds began to part and some blue filled in between them.
I went on a photo walk to stretch my legs.
I took more pictures during a lunch hour than I've taken all week.
I like to capture reflections in buildings.
Spring has arrived in my part of North Carolina.
Each day more and more signs of life appear.
I like big puffy clouds against a blue sky.
I was surprised how quickly the outdoor furniture dried off.
It had rained very hard all morning but during the time I was wandering around most of the surfaces dried.
I like the bare limbs of trees during the winter so I'm shooting them before they sprout leaves.

Oh, my goodness , Carver...You have outdone yourself this week. What a wonderful series of NC shots. Looks like spring is trying to peek it little ol' head out. The skies are beautiful, and I loved seeing all the buildings and the reflections. Great post. Genie

That was one amazing lunch hour lady! My gosh. Looks definitely as if spring is one the way. Love the skies and the flower buds and the interesting reddish building...well, the whole walk. Felt like I went along on the walk...(except for that I didn't get to stretch my legs ;>)

(And BTW, Please don't ever go anywhere without your camera!)

Karen said...

A great way to spend your lunch hour! Excellent shots.

I like the clouds we get after a rain, they make beautiful photographs. That building is a beauty, too. I like the reflective windows and the overall look of it.
