The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?
-Job 37:15

Ahh, the amazing sky

SKY WATCH FRIDAY time! Thanks to Dot and Tom, never forgotten founders of this great event. Come on, come fly with us!

Thanks to hosts: Klaus Sandy Sylvia Wren Louise Fishing Guy

I couldn't decide which shot was more significant to me this morning, so I just chose to post both. They are both from the archive. I haven't captured many sky shots lately. I need to get back to that...A sensationanl sunrise crepuscular displayI love clouds that look like cauliflower.
I can't think of a time when I have seen a 100% chance of tropical development, but here we are looking at the scraps of moisture that will certainly soon form Bonnie or at the least Tropical Depression 3.

THE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IN THE SOUTHEASTERN BAHAMAS HAS BECOME BETTER ORGANIZED AND A CLOSED CIRCULATION HAS FORMED.
It looks like the 11AM update will give her some sort of tropical designation.

  11. I'm guessing even without taking photos for a while your archives will sustain you. What lovely shots you take.

  12. Beautiful colours! Love the composition of the first photo and good use of the silhouette of the trees in the foreground to frame this shot.

    Have a great weekend.
