Sky Watch Friday




Here in Michigan we had rain everyday. It's hard to find a good colorful sunset or sunrise when the sun just didn't come out. Few days ago we had a beautiful sunset, it showed different colors but I was hesitant to go out it's too cold, lol! My photos (posted above) I took this the other day when the sky started to clear out and the sun wanted to come out. And because of that it created a silvery gold lining at the edge of a dark and gloomy clouds. The photos didn't justify what I saw in person....it was really beautiful I had to take a good look and admire how nature can make me happy.

Very nice, I love that lining in the clouds. Sometimes stormy skies can make great skies too, but not when they're simply plain grey.

Hi Kim,

Those are spectacular! I love 'em.

I've been having computer issues, so I didn't participate in SkyWatch Friday or SSS ... but I wanted to stop by and say hi.

Have a wonderful week!
