School Sky - Skywatch Friday

Busy week is over. Flight back to home arrived at 11:40 pm! It’s been a long week – apologies for lack of replies – will get on to those as soon as I can fully open my eyes!

Was in involved in a school fund raiser last weekend – lots of kids trapped in a school hall by thunderous rain! Stepped outside for a moment in an attempt to regain my sanity and was greeting by this sky trapped between passing storms. Only had my phone as a camera – so I’m pleasantly surprised by the results.


Some of the ‘clouds’ in this picture are actually sheets of rain being lit up by the setting sun flashing though a hole in an otherwise solid sky. It was pretty remarkable I have to say.

You can find more skies from around the world at SkyWatch Friday.

You can also see the most recent post on my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention picture on the RHS of the screen.

Enjoy the skies.

The sky never fails to amaze us.
Wonderful (some times we get real good results from our simple cameras)

I love storms with skies such as this (but not with lots of kids trapped in a building with me!)
