Skywatch Friday

Similkameen Skies
January 12th, 2012

As we speak the skies here in the Similkameen are dull, dismal and dreary, but yesterday we caught a little

 bit of sun and some beautiful blue skies which produced this sunset in the late afternoon.

The moon sailed high in the sky all night long

and in the morning there were bits of blue sky and this lovely gentle sunrise.

(complete with wires and poles and transformers)

I would be happy if these pewter skies that have rolled in now

were a portend of white flakes, but I fear

they only speak of low temperatures and chilly weather.

  1. Oh, you did have some lovely, colorful skies, Hildred, and what terrific captures you have for the day! Hope you have some more in the coming week! Happy SWF! Enjoy your weekend!


  2. Awesome!
    I wish you a Happy Friday!

  3. Oh wow Hildred what a beautiful sky and great shots.

  4. Wonderful sunset skies. They must have filled you with happiness.

  5. I love that first photo, Hildred, but really I can't choose a favourite because they're all lovely.
    We are having cold weather without snow, too. Very strange winter. Not that we always have huge snowy winters like last year, but this winter is very dry, even for the desert part of the prairie.
    I hope you and Charles are both well.

  6. You have beautiful collection of skies on show. How kind of the weather to provide all those pretty colors. Thanks for your kind comments.

  7. Picture perfect skies, lovely photos =)

    Have a nice weekend!

  8. Funny how we long for what isn't . . . your sky is beautiful, even if it doesn't bring a snow. I agree, however, that if it has to be cold, there might as well be snow to go along with it.

  9. Beautiful photos and lines : )
