Skywatch Friday



Here are some recent sky pictures from the Sabino Canyon area. The clouds in the middle picture sort of looked like a bird flying to me.

The sky is so blue, especially with the middle photo, and they are just gorgeous!

Oh no! Another blogger from AZ---I'm always so jealous of you guys! I love AZ.

Your pics here are beautiful. I especially like in your first photo the way the cloud formations mirror the trees. Very nice!

Did I say I love AZ? :o)

Diane, these are all great. The first image clouds look like waves that mimic the tree tops. I see the bird in the second. Nice x.

Great set of photos! playful but lovely!

I gasped over these blue sky shots. They are some of the most beautiful I've seen. They're the kind of sky that just makes me happy to be alive no matter what is going on. Also, the dark green hedges against the gray is very dramtic, a great contrast.

I stopped by awhile ago and was looking at the post with Cardinal in it. I LOVE that photo. To see such red in a bird always just stops me. I'd love to see a whole flock of them at one time. it would be breathlessly beautiful. :)

Barb said...

I like the way the clouds in the first photo seem to mimic the shape of the bushes.

Arija said...

Great Skywatch shots, the first has the clouds echoing the tree line and in the last X marks the spot, I just hope that was for a drop of Easter eggs not a bomb!

Phoenix C. said...

I love the way the clouds in the first photo echo the shapes of the trees!

Connie said...

All that dry air really does show off the skies in the desert.

REally beautiful shapes of the clouds at the first one. Great series :)

Amazing pictures, again!

LisaNewton said...

I love your skywatch pictures, and I see the bird. Over the last few days, I've seen more clouds than normal here. Yesterday, I saw Micky Mouse, but unfortunately, I was driving, so I couldn't snap the picture..............:(
