SkyWatch Friday

I had so much fun participating in SkyWatch Friday for the first time last week. It was great looking at all of the beautiful blogs and the fantastic pictures people chose to share. This is such a wonderful concept and I am so pleased to be a part of it. There are two pictures I would like to share this week. The first one was taken earlier this evening outside of my friends home. I love palm trees and I just love the way they look against the beautiful evening sky.




Let your imagination soar. Can you see the dragon in the clouds of this next picture? He looks pretty intense to me!!



Happy SkyWatch Friday! Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoyed! Until we meet again . . .

I love those photos, Joyce!

I've always thought that palm trees were so neat. Very different from our oaks, elms and cottonwoods!

Glad you could join us at Sky Watch.

This is very cool. I love the silhoettes of the palm trees, too.

Jules said...

Great shots and yes I can see that terrible dragon!!!! When I was a kid I used to lie on my back and make stories up with the clouds - we didn't have TV!!!!

It is great fun travelling around the world meeting people and looking at their photos and where they live, isn't it. I enjoy it immensely. I like you photo of the palm trees. They are magnificent specimens aren't they.

Great shots. I love clouds and try to see what I can find in them. That one looks like a dragon for sure. Happy SWF.

Jeanne said...

Thanks for coming by to visit. I just started SWF last week too. Love that palm tree shot. Used to be you were told to shoot with the sun at your back but it's so much more interesting to look at all angles now. You have a very cool set up for your blog and your pupster is a cutie.

Joyce: That was a dragon with some monster coming down to take a bite at his head. Please post larger photos so we can see the beauty of the shots.

oh love the plams you did a great job!

Jan said...

Lovely photos, we have lots of palm trees, here, too.

Dewdrop said...

It's so cool to imagine stuff into the clouds. I used to do that until weather took over my life... I have to force myself to see images in the scud and cumulus... instead of rain potential, severe potential, etc.

Sherry said...

Great sky shots! I especially love the first one with the palm trees, and I -can- see the dragon in the second photo. :)

Ellyn said...

Welcome back. Great picture. I really enjoyed it.

Rebecca said...

I like the whole palm trees and sky combo, too. Yay!

People with Cameras said...
