Sky Watch Friday

Thanks to our Sponsors for their efforts to bring us great skies to see each week.

To View these skies or to participate, just click on the Logo above.

My post today is a bit different than last week, in that we had two days of mostly bland skies and rain, at times torrential rain, especially the day I took these photos.

The particular evening( Wednesday ) as the sun was setting I noticed some awesome clouds stacking up in the West and South West, like big stacks of cotton, highlighted by the setting Sun.

I grabbed the camera and put on the 55-200mm lens and went outside to see if I could capture some of Creators awesome creations.

Following are some of the results of that endeavor...click on any image to enlarge and view at your leisure.



Starting Sunset in the West

Awesome Beauty in the South West


A Sun Dog appears in the far South West



Just as I was coming back in the house..I noticed this great " Promise of new things to come."
