Skywatch Friday - Gathering Clouds

Friday, January 13, 2017 in upstate New York.
We are close to sunrise, but the clouds look pretty grim.
It starts to brighten.

Finally, the sun is about to appear, about four miles down the road.

Visit #SkywatchFriday for more pictures of the sky, the sun, and more.

  1. I am afraid those gathering clouds will settle over our country for the next four years. We are in the fog here.

  2. It's so stark and yet so beautiful - very different to our summer skies here in Australia.

    1. Usually our skies are more gloom, all covered in clouds like a grey blanket.

    1. It was not your normal sky for January - we have more gloom and thick, grey clouds.

  11. Those clouds were looking pretty ominous. I'm surprised to see they cleared and gave way to such a beautiful sunrise.

    1. Clearing is rare this month where I live. It was a happy event, indeed.

  12. We've had more rain in NorCal than I can remember for a LONG, LONG time. I followed a dark sky and was poured on today as I was making a Craig's List sale at our local Starbucks. Nice pics! I love clouds and skies!

    1. Rain is good. Too much rain is bad. Very bad. I hope the weather evens out for you and for all of us.

    1. The sun is quite shy at this time of year - it shines on others. But one day, spring will be here.
