SkyWatch Friday: Spring

We've had a lot of interesting clouds this spring.
I'm starting with shots I took on April 3 and will be working backwards to the end of March.
I always take a lot of shots when we have the dense quilted looking skies.
The first day of April was almost all blue skies.
The white blossoms go so well with blue.
Although many trees are still bare more and more are starting to bloom.
I took a lot of shots on a stormy day when the sky was ominous.
Shortly before sunset some blue broke through.
I enjoy dramatic skies.
There is something very sci-fi about these shots to me.
I had trouble deciding which to use so I'm using quite a few.
For part of another day we had soft blue in the sky.
We had one day with some pretty sunset colors.
North east of the sunset the trees were shaded rust.
I always look on the opposite side of where the sun is setting because the light on the trees is often pretty.
The last shot is on the part of the sky where the sun was going down, or rather already had set.

I do the same thing Carver. I take a LOT of shots when there's puffy clouds overhead, well when I like the sky I just go overboard with the camera.

Happy April. Happy spring. It's kinda wet here right now. Rain thru the weekend they say.

The white blossoms against the blue sky are just elegant! Just love all your April skies -- perfectly shows how changeable this time of the year can be.

And I love your daff..oops -- narcissis header shot!
