Skywatch Friday

Decided I had to get on this beautiful bandwagon and join Skywatch Friday. I found the site a few weeks ago and told my daughter, Rachel. She has been posting pictures for the past three weeks and getting incredible hits and comments and I'm jealous. She is a much better photographer than I am, but she had to get some of her talent from me, I'm thinking:). So, here is my first Skywatch entry. We went to Naples on the west coast of Florida last week. We had an incredible time and had to hustle off the beach as there was a huge, typical Florida summer afternoon storm moving in quickly. Skywatch Friday has definitely made me much more aware of the beauty of the sky and I hope to improve as the weeks progress. If you happen upon my post here, I do thank you for stopping by and hope to share a moment with you again . . .

Thanks for joining us. These shots are just beautiful. I love the effect of the grey skies on the green. My favorite combination.

Welcome to Sky Watch, Joyce. Great photos! It really is fun to meet new people on this Sky Watch site. I love seeing people from other countries but it's equally wonderful to meet people from other states.

Fabulous skies... Great choice for your first Sky Watch!
I wish you could send some of that rain our way!

Thanks for stopping by Prairie Vision!

She certainly did get some of her talent from you! I do like the picture of the pier you have posted. The wooden structure is beautiful in itself. I like weathered wood very much. However, the cloud formation coming up behind is very atmospheric. Well captured ...
