Sky Watch

I love the weather.  In times of mental drought, it gives me plenty of fodder for my blogging habit.


The sky starts swirling over the farmette and out comes the camera. 


It was 75 degrees here yesterday.  Storms rolled by, but didn't bother us.  

Snow predicted tonight.   

Mother Nature...she is a fickle one.....

  15. Snow? Tonight? You have got to be kidding!!! And who would have guessed on a Friday of all days. >(

    That last shot is my favorite. We were spared from any storms here last night, as well. Of course, I was just about blown away as I left work for lunch a few minutes ago.

  18. these are wonderful, I like the color "push" are you using a special lense or playing with enhancements? Either way, very cool.
    not to be selfish but I do hope it snows tonight. My daughter & husband are on their way to Sugar NC for her last ski race...

  20. Love that last picture, Michelle - just beautiful! Notice how the sky looks darker when the sun is out - It got up to 82 here yesterday. That's a painting! You're such a great photographer!

  21. Great photos - I love to watch the sky, too . . .

  22. All three are wonderful. At first I was going to exclude the middle photo, because I see too many photographs with great skies and nothing going on below to add interest, but I decided that the sky is so unusual that it needed to be shown even without interesting ground below.

  23. What beautiful pictures! The last one was my favorite.

  24. "Is this a time to be cloudy and sad,

    When our mother Nature laughs around;

    When even the deep blue heavens look glad,

    And gladness breathes from the blossoming ground?”

  27. That last photo is just perfect, Michelle. The arch of the hill and fence is lovely. :)

  28. Oh I love your dark, dramatic skies. And what bizarre temperature swings!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wonderfully captured! The clouds are alive and vivid.... WoW!

  30. Oh, those are some wicked-looking skies ! Nice to see (and capture) but not nice when they unload. Hopefully you'll get another 75 to remove whatever snow you got !

    ReplyDelete
  31. Those are some of the best pictures of sky and clouds I've ever seen. I'm sure we can count on you to come up with beautiful photos if it snows too.

  34. The weather is something I think I could blog about every day! Mother Nature provides me something to talk about every day in North Dakota. Glad to see the same is for Kentucky! Hope you have an uneventful weekend. It's snowing here!

  43. Love these! We had a great storm cloud show as the sun peeked through just before sunset tonight. After 2 days of cold rain, we're looking to the 70's for the weekend. There is no predicting any more. :)
