Skywatch Friday: Skies Over the Glade

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

The sky over Fairfield Glade has been interesting this week.   We desperately need some rain, but while there were clouds, that little opening of blue sky always seemed to win out.  The clouds disappeared and any chance of rain went with them.

Finally on a hot, humid afternoon we did get a brief shower.  But once the rain ended, the skies cleared and the mist rose from the mountain tops.

Last night the skies were  clear with a nearly full moon looking down on the Glade.  I was able to get this picture at 8:26 pm.

    George, it does not matter what time of day or night you are taking pictures, you find some great sights. I have not learned how to do nights with my digital. Stay cool.

    Look up in the sky, there is a hole in the sky.

    The other day I desperately wanted to take a photo of the clouds in the sky, but I would have caused a car crash. When I had stopped the cloud formation had changed — oh well! Thanks for sharing all your expert photos of the skies! Gonna check that moon tonight – I can physically and emotionally feel that it is almost full, LOL!! Have a lovely dinner tonight and a great week-end! God bless!

    The 1st and 3rd picture reminds me of Tim Winton’s book title – That eyes, the sky.

  15. Rajesh Says:

    Awesome shots, I love the last shot. Here it is cloudy and raining.

    Your photo is just wonderful. I specially love the first one with the “blue bird” Here in Western Norway we got more than enough rain, and I`d love to give you some. But luckily for us the sun has come and we stop freezing.

    Have a nice sunday 🙂

    How come the moon hardly ever is seen that clear in Los Angeles? I wonder if it could be all our wonderful smog?

  18. Mary Says:

    I like that hole in the clouds. YOu got some great shots…especially the moon.
