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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

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

    Lovely cloud and a reminder that spring is almost here.

  30. 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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  33. what a nice perspective, very pretty!!!

  34. 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!

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  43. 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.

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  46. Great shot! The orange streak gives a glimmer of hope to the stark branch.

  48. 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

    ReplyDelete
  49. Very well done, I love trees against sky ! Bravo !

    ReplyDelete
  50. 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.

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

    I did SkyWatch as well...:-)

    ReplyDelete
  52. 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!)
