Sky Watch #37

It's skywatch time of the week again. I'll put Valley of Fire series on hold for a couple of days to give way to sky watch today and photo hunt tomorrow.
This series of photos were shot between 5:45 pm to 6:00 pm on February 5, 2009 from my work parking lot. I normally don't do some shooting when I'm around work but I already clocked out and was about to drive out when I spotted this interesting sky.

It became more interesting when a plane came into view. The airport is not too far from where I work.
Happy Skywatching everyone. For more skywatch photos, please visit here.

These are so dynamic and dramatic. Lots going on in the sky and the plane is a cool bonus.

I'm with Guy, love aviation shots and, forgive me, but I'm happy to see someone else is having gray skies! Yours are fascinating though with the different shades. Hope you have a great weekend!

Love the dramatic sky! Shooting airplanes is not the easiest thing to do - I have tried several times. I prefer your shots!

Hildegarde said...

The second one is the best one for me, it gives an interesting division in the sky, the barrier of clouds seems to mark two spaces, the plane adds depth and movement, yes : eye candy, well done !

Wow, wow...I've been wanting to take a shot of planes too like Mojo. And this one is spectacular. And the sky? one great show again.

Tarolino said...

I really like the way the plane gets smaller and smaller flying through those dark clouds.

Looks like the clouds are going to burst to rain. I live close to Burbank Airport here in So. Cal and I see a lot of them hovering the skies. Nice series of pictures.

Babooshka said...

Those skies are so moody for that poot little plain to be in.

Ginnie said...

YAAAAY. I'm finally able to comment, Maria. I had tried the last two times I came but couldn't. You know me...I LOVE skies like this, so BRAVO.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Threatening sky. Very well done.

Janie said...

Interesting clouds, and I love the airplane series, too.

Sidney said...

Dramatic scenery...especially the dark clouds...perfect capture of this plane!

Lovely photos for SWF. Love the way you capture the plane from close to faraway. The sky looked like a storm is coming. Have a nice weekend.

Tricia said...

Did a storm come out of those ominous looking clouds? Cool shots!

Lew said...

You have gray skies and colorful rocks out your way! Very interesting posts on the Valley of Fire.

PC: Neat shots of the plane as it goes into the clouds.

chrome3d said...

It seemed as if the plane was aiming for that hole in the clouds and in the last one it had gone through. Good aim. From you too.

Colin Campbell said...

Very interesting and atmospheric shots. And a plane. What a deal.

standley said...
