Skywatch Friday

For the first time in many days we have beautiful sunlit skies. Just a few white whispy clouds. It looks wonderful to me. The sunshine makes those -2 to 16F temps more bearable.
Happy Sky Watch Friday to you all. For more skies to watch go here.

Very nice. It is mostly a gray day here with some sunlight poking through now and then. We have reached our high of 28 today.

I don't see snow on the ground, did you all not get any?

I am so thankful for the sunny day, I can't imagine these temperatures without the sunshine. It would be most unbearable.

That is beautiful! I just found your blog and thought I would pay you a visit. You have a very nice blog here!

Robin, we have had no snow to speak of, just a skiff one or two days. I agree, sun makes these low temps more bearable.

Lisa at Greenbow said...

Welcome Cascia. Thank you for the complement.

Lisa, thankfully we've had sun too. I think God must have decided we needed a little bright to help us cope with the cold. :} We are having a heat wave here-it got to 7 today!

Have a great weekend and stay warm.

Wonderful shot, Lisa! Those are the kind of clouds where fire rainbows are born. Have you ever seen one? I saw a small one about three weeks ago.--Randy

Lisa at Greenbow said...

Randy, I don't suppose I have never seen a fire rainbow. I have never heard that term before. It sounds most interesting. I will have to google it to see what it is.

Mon@rch, it is funny that you mentioned painting skies. I have found that the most difficult thing to do. I have never been pleased with any effor I have made to paint skies. They look so simple yet to get that texture and whispyness it is so difficult.

The ice blue of your sky looks like my cold sky.
The sun does help.
Stay warm.

Hi Lisa, I love the wispiness and the blue blue sky of your photos. Winter skies can be some of the prettiest of the year.
