Skywatch Friday: Blue Skies Over the Plateau

Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. September 12, 2010.

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.

This past Sunday was absolutely beautiful here on the Plateau.  The temperatures were fairly cool, we had gotten some rain on Saturday, and the sky was a gorgeous blue.

When I lived in North Carolina we said this color of sky was Carolina Blue, but I’m not sure if I should use that description here in Tennessee.  On the other hand orange is the color of the University of Tennessee, so perhaps there wouldn’t be a problem.

Every once in a while a small cloud will sail across Sunday’s blue sky.

But most of the time we just enjoyed that brilliant blue above the trees.

    I guess you could call it Fairfield Glade blue. Whatever you call it is certaintly is a beautiful blue. We are having just solid gray and lots of rain. MB

    That’s really blue sky! Definitely competition for our California blue skies! Love the lone, white clouds passing by. They look so happy! Enjoy SWF and the weekend.

    Ooooooo, love the blue with just a cottonball of cloud going about looking for some friends to play with! Today is a blue sky here, after a week of misty, cool cloud cover.

    I rarely see the sky with such a deep, intense color!! Well, in a couple weeks we will be having “October’s bright blue weather!”

    Looks a little like the blue sky of Texas, too! Glad you’ve had some nice weather – ours here in Virginia has been sort of mixed lately, and our skies are definitely not that blue. Gorgeous sky shots!

    Sorry I’m so late getting by! Your skies are gorgeous! I have to admit I’m a little envious, George — we had fog so thick I couldn’t see the sky at all! Have a wonderful weekend with lots of sunshine!


  18. Pam Says:

    Those are beautiful blue skies you have in the Glades, George. I’m glad to hear you had some rain to water your gorgeous gardens.

    Have a blessed weekend 🙂

    “Brilliant” is a perfect way to describe that blue! Puts me in mine of the theme from a show I watched way back when. Do you remember the song, “The Bluest Skies I’ve Ever Seen Are In Seattle”?

  20. Rose Says:

    I love it when the skies are that brilliant blue…seems like that mostly happens in the fall and some in the spring.

  21. Rajesh Says:

    Beautiful views of the blue sky with lovely little white clouds.

  22. Linda Says:

    Such benign, friendly little clouds against that wonderful blue backdrop.
