Sky Watch #96:

17 Jun

Was flipping thru my albums recently and I noticed these sky watch images that haven’t seen air time in these meme.  These three are all drive by shots.

Sunset as seen from Highway 580 in Oakland.

Trying to get home before the clouds open up (not successful) – skywatching along Highway 680 Walnut Creek.

Watching the sky at dusk while driving around Emeryville.  A winter shot.  I thought I’d not wait for the next winter to roll around before I show this.  I know I’d have more in my albums before then.

SKYWATCHING is a weekly gathering of sky watchers and sky lovers.  Join us.

    Great jetstream crossing over the sunset in the first. It’s heavenly on the second one and below is pretty skyly fair. Good that you bring them out on the air. Now the the clouds on the third photo are waving but finely. 🙂 Lovely Madam.

    I can’t choose a favorite but I’m always drawn to sunset/sunrise photos. Anyway, all are great photos that maybe the reason why I can’t choose right now. Ciao!

    It looks like 2 jets have done a cross flight. Great golden color. But I like the fluffy clouds of the third best.

    You sure are good with those drive by shots! I think I photographed that same sky – the last one. It reminds me of cottage cheese for some reason. Thanks for your visit to Z’s grad ceremony. It was a fun event. He got into all the colleges he applied to but has decided to attend the local community college. That will save some money! In a few weeks though he’s off to Boston to go to a five week summer program at a music college. I’m flying out with him so I’m looking forward to shooting some of the sights. Enjoy the warmer weather!
