SkyWatch Friday - Not all promises are kept.



We have had some strange skies here this week – many looked like they may give up some much needed rain, but we had to wait until tonight before we had any rain. Then some people got a little too much rain.

The pictures are taken from my house – so some have had a little hair cut to remove unwanted TV aerials and such like.

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

You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention link on the RHS of the screen.

Enjoy the skies.

Very nice depth n these clouds. Rain is good...but it's very sad that some people received too much.

The skies are surreal, so blue and vivid. Great shots Stewart.

Cheers.

Your clouds/skies look so much like ours here in Seattle, Stewart, beautiful and dramatic! We sometimes get more rain than we bargained for, but it does keep things growing! Hope you have a great weekend!!

Really does look like storms coming! Changing skies are the most dramatic.

Those are the kind of skies we normally get and moody grumpy clouds about to burst are as intense and eye cacthing as any sunset.

Beautiful skies, Stewart! Seems like it's always hard to get just the right amount of rain... usually not enough or too much. Happy skywatching!

Dramatic skies. It does look as if they are about to unleash a torrent of rain. clouds can be so deceptive sometimes.
