Sky Watch Friday


Hope that all of you that celebrate Thanksgiving have a blessed day .

Last week my son flew to California and since i don't fly i asked him to take some photos in the air so this is one he sent me.
And i thought i would take this shot this morning of what our weather was like for Thanksgiving, Beautiful day, about 32 degrees what more can you ask for. Altho Mt Bachelor didn't have enough snow to open for there ski season i heard they were trucking snow in so that people could do the tubing.

Beautiful images!

Isn't it amazing how people can't wait anymore for Mother Nature to do her magic?

Interesting what the sun does to the sky, isn't it?

Happy Thanksgiving -- have a "card" for you on my site for today also.

Some people seem to be having great weather, still. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Louise said...

The color in the sky is nice. A nice Thanksgiving day, too! Trucking snow sounds like a lot of trouble!

Suzanne said...

Both the photos are wonderful. I actually though the first one was the front of a large ship and you photographed it from a small boat. Happy SWF.

Sandradb said...

Very nice shots, and , of course - Happy Thanksgiving!

We can't enjoy the turkey, so we will enjoy the pictures instead.

The first photo makes me look forward to fly to Cyprus on the 17th of December (for 3 weeks) - me and my husband. (It's a long story how we ended up with that!)
Very nice sky photo taken by your son.
But I like the next too - thinking of 32 degrees! Thanksgiving seems to be a good custom - hope you enjoyed it! By the way: more and more customs from the US is being copied in our country, so who knows when Thanksgiving will be ordinary here too?

I love the first one, looks like some sky monster is belching! :D

Carole said...

Wow. Your son did a great job of capturing a gorgeous sky.

TCKK said...

Great photos! I love the one from the plane.

Cool. Nice photo for SWF. I always dont get to sit at the window seat cause my nieces would always exchange the window seat with me. So it would be a rare chance for me to take anything from the window seat in the plane.

Luiz Ramos said...

Beautiful sky and day!!
Thanks.

Lilli: Nice shot from the plane and a neat sun shot. Congrats on the big screen.

Kahshe Cottager said...

Lovely view from the plane ... the whole world is spread out when you are up that high! You also have a nice flash of the sun through the trees! I wish I could send you some of our snow ... I don't ski and can live without it just fine! *-)

Thanks for your visit!

Looks like you had a beautiful, if chilly, Thanksgiving Day. The airborne photo is nice. I like to fly, but don't do it much anymore.

Thanks for your visit to my Sky Watch post.

Your sky is beautiful!

Gardenia said...

I love the way the sunlight looks so silvery in your pictures!

Dewdrop said...

All that traveling and you don't fly, huh? Great shots by your son! Hope your Thanksgiving was terrific!

Namnet said...

The plane photo is superb. I have never seen something like that on my own eyes. I wish I would.
And the sun peeking through the tree - stunning. Simply love it.
Happy skywatching and a bit belated wish: happy thanksgiving!
