Skywatch Friday






We hadn't seen the sun in quite a few days here but today she was a welcome sight for me. I just wish I didn't have the power lines in my path. I tried to head out to a local park just around dinnertime to catch the sunset in an open area but the insurance company came to assess the damage to our basement just when I was ready to head out. Thus, while they were in our basement setting up huge fans and dehumidifiers, rolling up our rug to take away to be clean, I stood in our driveway next to their truck and snapped a few photos for Skywatch Friday. Be sure to head on over to see other amazing sky photos from around the globe!

Sometimes you have to take them when you can get them. I missed a beautiful sunset tonight when I couldn't find my camera. By the time I did, it was gone. Yours are very beautiful, even with power lines.

Dot: What neat skies you have shown for SWF.

Lovely shots, pity about the wires, but I guess you can't have it all.

Love the way there's pink showing under the dark clouds.

Those are gorgeous! I am a sucker for a pretty sky, but usually miss the sunsets since I'm driving home at the same time. I hope I can capture a lot more in the Summer when the days are longer.

Sorry about your basement. Lovely shots though. You'll be able to hit your spot next time! :O)

Sorry your hot water heater went out at an inopportune time. But then, I guess no time is good. Not so good when it soaks everything, though. I admire your dedication in getting out to see the sunset in spite of difficulties. You really took some nice shots from right in your yard. Beautiful pink color coming through.

lovely skypictures!
I wish you all the sun you need in and outside your house.
I hope you got it all dry by now inside :-)

I wish all power lines were buried under the ground...wouldn't that make it a lot easier for those of us who are obsessed with photography? :)

Your photos turned out fantastic though! You did see a dramatic sky that night.
