Sky Watch #33


IMG_0019, originally uploaded by M'roy.

There are times when you find a sky watch entry while doing mundane tasks, like going to the store or something. My entry for today is what I saw as I was leaving a local Barnes and Noble. So hurried to my car and pulled out the camera from the glove compartment (it's a compact point and shoot) and snapped this before driving away.

Don't you love it when you go outside at just the right time? I'm sure the wonderful color on those clouds was much different not a couple of minutes before and after. Maybe even gone entirely.

Dewdrop said...

So glad you had a camera handy... in the glove box, love it! Wonderful capture... on a quick glace, it looks like the tree is on fire. Wonderful lighting on those clouds. Awesome silhouette shot!

Darn, I'm not first. lol

Louis said...

Great skywatch picture. Long Sikh (sick :-) ) parade. They have very colourful clothing.

Carver said...

I love the colors of the clouds and the almost bare limbs against the sky.

RuneE said...

Always carry a camera (those subject don't last).

bobbie said...

This one is amazing! Striking contrast.

I would never have guessed there was anything mundane anywhere near this lovely shot!

Sylvia K said...

Stark and dramatic shot! Absolutely beautiful!

Bradley Myers said...

Good post, I find myself looking up much more now that I do skywatch Friday also.

Babooshka said...

Always have a camera you just never know when a beauty like this will pop up.

Rune said...

I must admit I find that kind of shot very exciting to take, the ones that come upon you suddenly.

imac said...

Love the colour.

bowledover said...

It is amazing how those last few leave hang on even after all that has been thrown at them.
Lovely cloud and a reminder that spring is almost here.

Maria said...

Beautiful colours and composition. I hope you bought some great book or CD, and this photo was a bonus.
Have a nice weekend!

Reader Wil said...

The tree in front of the pink cloud is a very lucky coincidence. It's stunning.

Jew Wishes said...

How lovely! I like the silhouettes against the sky...

Ruth said...

Glad you were so observant and had your camera handy. Beautiful shot.

Kathy said...

I was at B&N today also. Love those clouds. Kinda reminds me of a Poe story. =) Hope you have a great friday

PJ said...

You couldn't do that with a film camera! What beautiful coloration. Happy SWF!

Larry D said...

Nice catch!

Wren said...

The light and color are fabulous in the clouds, and the tree silhouette makes this photo stand out.

Raven said...

Great shot - just love the cloud formations and colour against the tree.

Luke Wiley said...

Very attractive sky!

SandyCarlson said...

The clouds are like tufts of cotton!

2sweetnsaxy said...

I would have run to my camera for this one too. I love it. :-) Just don't do what I've done. I've backed out, seen something and stopped in the middle of the lane to get a shot. :-D

earthtoholly said...

This is really nice...the smokey clouds and silhouette of branches. Great job!

Mary said...

Oh, how pretty! It reminds me of a japanese print -- very graphic yet soft... Glad you had your camera. have a great weekend. :)

FickleMinded said...

what a nice perspective, very pretty!!!

Light and Voices said...

No procrastination on your part. See the shot. Grab the camera out of the glove compartment. Point and click. This image is very dramatic, simple and pink cloud adds that punch. Nice job!

Beautiful shot of the sky with the tree braches against it :)

Bohol Today said...

This is wonderful! Superb sky you had, how lucky to have your camera by you.

alicesg said...

Lovely photo for SWF. I always have my camera with me whereever I go. :) Have a nice weekend.

Today's Blah... said...

Hi, was looking for your followers but couldn't find it. Anyway, am adding you to my list so I could check what you've posted. Mabuhay!

Arija said...

A fire in the sky with blackened paper raining on the trees...
Great capture.

Hilda said...

And a lovely capture it is! Love the small, red-rimmed dark clouds. Happy Sky Watching!

Leora said...

What a lovely shot. You got the cloud burning, and the branches wagging. Great composition.

Sidney said...

Its beautiful !

chanpheng said...

Cool cloud. When I first saw it, I thought it was colored cotton stuck on the tree!

shaker said...

Great composition !

Jeannelle said...

Gorgeous! Stunning! Good you looked up as you were walking out of the store and great plan to always have a camera handy.

Thank you for visiting my SkyWatch.

don said...

The combination of the stark branch and its few remaining leaves works beautifully against the sun touched clouds. A beautiful shot.

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

I love impromptu shots like this, they are often the best we take! Very nice.

John said...

Excellent shot!

Sreisaat said...

Great shot! The orange streak gives a glimmer of hope to the stark branch.
Have a great weekend :)

Heart of Rachel said...

It's a great capture.

Dennis Villegas said...

wow beautiful shot! nice silhouette, nice sky!

syel said...

we should never really leave home without a camera. i'm pretty sure it just lasted for a couple of seconds. lovely colours and silhouette! :D

Imaginerf said...

Very well done, I love trees against sky ! Bravo !

Mojo said...

This is exactly the reason I have a point-and-shoot backup camera on my to-get list. It's not practical for me to schlep my DSLR everywhere I go, and I miss so many shots just like this one because of that very fact.

RJ Flamingo said...

Neat shot! Grackles against the sky... this could almost be for Halloween! :-)

I did SkyWatch as well...:-)

Janice said...

Great shot. I love the very limited colours and clean 'sparseness' of it. (Not sure if that's a word, but you know what I mean!)
