Looking at the Sky on Friday and SkyWatch Friday / Hmmmm...Will It Rain?

Click on photo to enlarge!
The sky over the Claremont Wilderness Park a few days ago when a weather system was blowing in from the northwest.
We got a few showers but nothing significant this time.

Nice sky backdrop for what appears to be a flag tree.

eden said...

Great capture and I also love that windy action of the tree.

Carver said...

That's a beautiful sky and I love how you got the movement in the trees. Hope you get the rain you need.

Great dramatic shot! I like the crooked tree trunk and clouds. This image would make an intriguing book jacket cover.

promise of deluge—
dark clouds, northwest wind howling—
then sun reappears

Even though I don't participate in Skywatch Friday, I've looked at several of them and yours is really ahead of the pack. I love the tree against the sky and the composition. Nice job!

Nice composition, Carolyn! It looks like that tree has grown up with wind blowing on it.

i could feel the wind blowing on this hapless tree.

i hope it would rain here--it's 37 degrees C outside.:p

The weather has been weird lately, and now its so hot!

I could see the tree swaying with the wind blowing gently.

P.S. I already got the plug in for Friend Connect. Just linked my SWF a few minutes ago.

Can't believe it didn't rain! I can almost feel the wind blowing that tree -- and from the color of the sky, it seems as if rain would have to follow. Great picture.

dancin' under the sky, lovely capture.

tut tut, it looks like rain (as Christopher Robin said). That dramatic sky promises a deluge ... glad you didn't get soaked :)

SquirrelQueen said...

That is a great tree. All the wind and rain stopped here in SE WA so there wasn't much left by the time it got to CA.

I like the silhouette of the tree against the sky.

Great shot! You definitely caught the wind blowing.
