Skywatch Friday - 3/13/09

We went out in the early evening this week to try to hear and see American Woodcocks doing their spring song and dance. The sun was setting amongst the clouds. It didn't make for a very pretty sunset.A little later the clouds started lining up in rows.
It almost appeared like someone was folding up the clouds for the night.Then the moon started playing peek a boo behind the clouds.
For more sky watching from all around the world go here. Have a wonderful weekend.

Lisa .. Very pretty pictures ! The moon drove me nuts last night .. slow to rise and hard to shoot .. the night before when I didn't have the tripod ready, the moon was fantastic of course ! LOL

Gintoino, we didn't get the Woodcocks. We did see and hear some Snipe. They also have such unusual songs and flights.

Nice SWF photos!

The moon last night reflected on the frozen cove off our back yard. It was surreal.

That middle photo reminds me of ghostly fingers;) I'm always trying to find shapes in clouds.

Great shots Lisa! I enjoyed the progression of the changing cloud formations and the mysterious-looking moon. Have a wonderful weekend!

I think these sky photos look beautiful! The moon was gorgeous last night, but I can't take decent moon shots. The weather forecast for next week is looking really good--maybe some garden chores will finally get done here:)

I think clouds are so fascinating.

Perhaps not a great sunset, but that is an awesome moonrise. gail

Your words and pictures are like poetry Lisa!

I love all the images here on Greenbow...they are a delight for the eyes!

The eagles nest shots are wonderful. I'm always amazed how big they are...and yet...the camera just does not translate the size. Your shots are some of the best I have seen that give an idea of the scale.

Lisa, I love the way you described the clouds, 'folding them'. And you always manage to get such good shots of the moon! Have a great weekend.

Jan (Thanks For 2 Day) said...

The sky looks like a lake to me, with ripples...very cool:-) Love your 'moon shots'!

Q said...

Dear Lisa,
Nice sky shots. It has been cloudy here so no moon photos.
Did you hear the woodcocks?
I would love to see them displaying.
