Skywatch Friday - Mountain Clouds


The first part of this week was foggy and then rainy, and I despaired of every seeing blue sky where I was visiting.  But finally, the clouds started to break up.

First, this.

Then, the mountains appeared.

Still later, a golden sunset reflects against a "Gold's Gym".

Finally, Thursday, I said goodbye to Central Virginia and returned to my home in upstate New York.

Back to the gloom.

Thank you to #SkywatchFriday for hosting this weekly meme.  Please visit others posting their pictures of the sky.

  1. Love these Alana - especially the second one where the clouds are so defined against the sky.

  16. Beautiful photographs of the sky. Although it is more fun to have a bright blue sky, these arrays of thick clouds are very appealing to look at and would make gorgeous paintings.

  17. The vivid blue and golden orange streaks sky is a wonderful mood booster, isn't it? And, it makes for a great Skywatch Friday share. Of course varying weather conditions make interesting shots so I'm eager to see the world around me when it's sunny or gray! I'm eager to day to the mountains. I hope it's not too cold next Saturday and maybe we can do that. Thanks for sharing and visiting. Have a good weekend!
