Skywatch Friday

It is Skywatch Friday again.
I took these two pictures a few weeks ago on a rare dry morning . We have had so much rain and the forecast was rain again for that day. This was a clear sky before dark clouds took over and we had rain again.

 

 
For more skywatch pictures go here. You will find a list of over 300 skywatchers there.

That is a lovely sky. I took a couple tonight of our sky which was dark and nasty, but they didn't come out well!!.We are expecting more snow tonight, although yesterdays didn't last long as it rained.

Hope all your preparations for Christmas are going well. Are you having all the family with you or are you visiting some of them?

Regards, Jackie.

Beautiful blue skies, Riet. I wonder if you have the snow right now. I've seen it on another Dutch blog this evening, and it's heading our way through the night.

Depressing isn't it when you look outside and you know exactly what is going to happen as the morning progresses!

I like the one that has more of the city skyline in it to give me some feel for the poor people who are going to cope with the bad weather heading their way.

Hello dear Riet, your blue sky is lovely. Such a deep blue too. Our sky is totally white today...no blue in sight.
hugs

Lovely blue skies! Looks as though the moody, grumpy clouds are trying to take over!! Terrific shots, Riet!

Wishing you a lovely weekend!

Hoi Riet,

Wat een overgang zeg, bij jou van die prachtige helderblauwe luchten, lijkt wel buitenlands.
En hier mooie grijze sneeuwluchten.

Je zal zeker wel een aantal super mooie sneeuwfoto's gemaakt hebben, denk ik. Of ligt er bij jou niet zoveel? Hier vanmorgen 21cm, en vanmiddag om 6 uur, 43 cm. Wel ERG fraai allemaal.

Lieve groet Josephine

Here in the Carolinas the blue sky has been non-existent for several weeks. You certainly captured a beautiful shot of the sky and skyline. Lovely.

Lovely skies with those wonderful clouds hovering above the urban skyline! I'm sharing my beautiful beach sunset views at Sacred Ruminations this week ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Prachtige lucht, de eerste vind ik nog beter van compositie als de tweede.

Reader Wil said...

Mooie indrukwekkende lucht, Riet. We hebben ondertussen nog meer sneeuw gekregen. Maar ik vind het wel leuk.

Elisabeth said...

Lovely blue skies...Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. Love those tiny snowflakes falling on your blog page.

The blue is incredibly brilliant in the second photo.

Love these photos - all that sky with just a hint of the buildings at the bottom. Can I ask where you got the code for your falling snow - I had it on my blog last year but can't find the code again. Thanks.
