SkyWatch Friday: August Skies

After a rainy day the sun came out long enough to set.
Sunday was one of the few days where we had partial clearing for most of the day.
Because of a very rainy summer, any blue is welcome.
I have a lot of sky shots because I take a bunch whenever it's not raining.
The shots in this post are only from three days because the rest of the time it was almost all gray.
I took a ton of shots during an art museum park walk.
I've used other shots from that walk on posts this week but still have plenty I didn't use.
While I'm writing this post it's pouring down raining.
It's raining so hard my gutters are filling up and the rain is streaming down in front of my windows.
Past droughts are fast becoming distant memories.
The next few shots were taken in Durham, NC at work.
I've shot the watertower many times.
I like the depth of the clouds in contrast to the clearer part of the sky below.
I quickly snapped the next shot driving from work back home to Raleigh, NC where I live.
I took the last two shots at home.
I like the way the contrail shot a diagonal line near the cloud.

Beautiful photos of the sky. Yes, it is always worth it to look up. I like the photo with the pond. The reflection from the water makes it stand out.

The photo with the water tower is another interesting shot. It gave the perspective as if it was either holding up the clouds or the water tower is like a vacuum; sucking in the clouds.

Either way have a wonderful weekend.
