Skywatch Friday

These photos were taken on Monday December 15th, 2008 around 4.30pm. It was super windy and the temperature was dropping like a stone. There seemed to be such a variety of colours and I just love the red/pink colour, so much activity in the sky.

What a beautiful set of magical sky. It must have been some kind of witchcraft to create such a sky. Wonderful.

I love it when the colors mingle in the sky in their own litle cloud dance. Awesome! The textures are awesome too, like cotton candy.

Beautiful pictures!
At work today, I took a gentleman home. He had a strong English accent. Reminded me of you. Even though I've not heard you speak.

The contrail or white whispy streak looks like the horn of an ancient animal attached to its furry head and body. Sort of... :)

Afanja said...

Amazing!
Must have been a magical moment to see it all happen above you. Thanks for sharing these beautiful shots!

Pat - An Arkansas Stamper said...

Beautiful photos. They remind me of a line in a Robert Louis Stevenson poem: "Who has seen the wind?..." Surely, one can see the wind in this sky. Well done.
Thanks for your visit to my SWF post.

Great captures of a very colourful sky. Oh, and I know how cold it got!

Wispy and puffy and pink - lovely.

Arija said...

Such flippancy the clouds display
as here and there they float,
it leaves the sky in disarray
as happily they dance and sway
to heaven's tune a cheerful roundelay.

Brit' Gal Sarah said...
