Sky Watch Friday


Yes, I'm joining in another photo meme!

For some time I've seen many inspiring sky pictures on blogs I visit, but I've been nervous of joining in. But now newly blogging daughter has taken the plunge, so I've been encouraged to follow suit.


I took this photo yesterday evening from one of our upstairs windows. As you can see, the sky is nothing like that posted by our host!

To join the fun, and so view some wonderful pictures, visit
Wigger's World
and enjoy!

Thank you for joining in and welcome.
Your sky IS different from mine and that just great to see... When I read about how much you like dragons I was hoping you had one flying around but maybe you will show that nest week... I wish you a great Sky Watch.. if you have the time visit a few of us and hopefully you will find a friend or to in the process.

Thank you for joining in with Sky Watch this week and helping to make it special.

Tom :O)

I would like to see a dragon in the sky myself but then if I stop and think about it I don't think I would like it so much. Our bird's ancestors were as close to being dragons I guess as it ever gets. They were really big birds.

I like your sky watch photograph.

Hello there missy dragonstar. Big welcome to skywatch. What a way to start with such a dramatic mean and moody image. Fantastic.

Carletta said...

If you scroll the image it picks up the dragon on your background and I wasn't sure about the sky at first - neat!

Hi Dragonstar! Really cloudy one! Beautiful post and I like your profile photo because you look very cute :D

Well "Louis" happens to think you've made a grand entry into the SWF meme! Congratulations!

"Louis" being an early riser, caught San Francisco waking up. Louis attributes the camera shake to (A) it was still early enough that "Louis's" caffeine meter was not yet out of the red zone and (B) the lack of a tripod for a shot like this....

Welcome to Sky Watch. Your sky is what I call 'broody', and very interesting. If ever there was a sky in which dragon's could hide, it would be one like that. Good Sky Watch photo.

pretty catch for Sky Watch Friday! earth and sky are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books. Mine’s up too hope you can drop by but if you already visited then thanks.

I've been really nervous to join in here too.First of all it was all the English. I have not written so much English since I was 19 (now I'm 43) and then it was my pictures...But I'm really enjoing it now and hope that you all understand my words:D

And your photos is always great!!!

I'm so glad you participated! I see hope and fear in the skies around you, a powerful combination.

My husband used to call me a sky witch. I'm always looking at the sky.

Look at all the comments! Impressive, just like your sky. Yay!

It look like a perfect picture for a movie with a mad scientist.

"Louis" thanks you for your kind comments about his s H a K y S h O t. For this next "ABC Wednesday", stop by for "Visions from Hell!"

And I thought three was enough - I think you're now participating in something on almost every day of the week! Not at all addicted, are you... Love the photo, you get some fantastic skies out of the front windows, must be something to do with the fact they look out over the Atlantic - my windows have a generally polite inland sky to look at.

BTW, part of the reason the shoreline on my two photos looks different is that I forgot what level of zoom I'd used on the first one, and used a higher zoom on the second one so you're actually seeing less of the shore in that one.

Little Baby Nothing said...

Ah, didn't think of that! I don't think it was even there then, as the barrage didn't exist and the Bay as we know it now was only flooded in 1999. None of those buildings except probably the Norwegian Church would have been there, either.
