SkyWatch Friday #37

The weather has been quite beautiful, lots of sunny skies and slowly increasing temperatures. It has made my SkyWatch photos a little boring all that blue sky! However yesterday a weather system showed up on the horizon. Even though it is out of the north the temperatures stayed pleasant enough to be on the beach. The ice on the beach was not there the day before, the shift in winds brought it back into shore.

The dunes are slow to show any signs of spring but if you look closely

The willow is reddening and getting ready to bud.

After our walk on the beach. I decided to rake the yard of last years leaves. As the day wained the weather system settled in over the fields.

However there is promise of a better day for tomorrow on the horizon.

The Creator's glory!

Just a reminder before I close... Saturday, March 28th why not celebrate Earth Hour and turn off your power at 8:30 p.m. for an hour and join the expected 2 billion people around the world who want to make a difference and remember... if you think one person can not make a difference....you have not spent a night in a tent with a mosquito!


Now for more great skies from around the world go to SkyWatch Friday

Looks wild and abandoned in a free sort of way.

Ice on a beach seems wrong. I 4th shot with what appears to be a roll cloud. Awesome and the last with the one little crepuscular ray shooting up!!! Spectacular.

"Boring blue skies". I love clear days but you are right to note that pictures are far more interesting with some clouds. Great shots.

What beautiful photos...each one filled with serenity and wonderful textures.

The coastline photo is wonderful.

I like the hints of spring that I see, subtle colors of growth.

Lovely, lovely, lovely.
