Happy Skywatch!



So, here we are again. This week has been filled with wicked thunderstorms almost every day. Usually they show up around lunchtime, sometimes closer to mid-afternoon...sometimes all day. First photo is from the Beach, very close to the Naval Air Base, this plane made it's way slowly by.

Yesterday we lost power for a bit, so when I got home from work (it was windy, but no storms in sight), I decided to take my usual trek down the road..that boat ramp is becoming like a second home, lol. Sunset photos taken with sunset setting.

The sunset was beautiful, as usual. and this pretty pink cloud is what I saw walking back to my apartment. I walked a bit farther up the street, to get it just right under the overhanging branch, by then it had started to sprinkle again, so I quickly made my way inside where it was safe...and the power was back on, too!
To see more great photos, go here, Skywatch is great!!

Just amazes me how many different colours can be present in sunsets. That big storm head cloud is awesome.

Very interesting series of Sky Watch images, Kim!
"Louis" finds it difficult to capture airplanes with his toy Olympus. Good catch!

These are great. I really like how the sun's reflections glisten off of the choppy waves.

Rain here almost everyday which is unusual for WNY...

What unusual color in the sunset shots. More golden yellow instead of the orange/reds we tend to see. Can't wait to see it in person!

It always brightens "Louis's" day to see you've stopped by, Kim! "Louis" thanks for your visit and kind comments at San Francisco Bay Daily Photo. "Louis" agrees with you that 'CAFFEEINE IS LIFE!" ;-)
