Skywatch: In Between Storms


(enlarge to see greater detail)
This was the view outside my sunroom window on Monday. The day before it was pouring the snow down and I was out in twenty degree weather trying to take snowflake shots. What a wonderful difference a day makes. Of course it changed right back the following day to snow flurries and overcast skies and we haven't seen blue skies since. For me this is a wonderful reminder of what a really beautiful winter day can look like.

Beautiful big fluffy white clouds against lovely blue skies! They look a lot like mine if I ignore the snow on the ground where you are ;-)
It's a lot warmer than 20 degrees here.
Hugs and blessings,

This is what I believe after the storm there is always beauty that comes out from it. And this is one of the example, awesome scenery!

I totally agree with you, Carletta.
Blue sky, white ground, what more could you want? Perfect! Lovely shot.

Your winter day is very pretty, but I would like to sunny skies for awhile. We have 8 inches of snow today in Texas. That is unheard of.

Beautiful, Carletta!

I love everything about this photo! (I saw it the day you posted it but my hands weren't working to do more than click and scroll.) I even downloaded it for future use as wallpaper. :) Hope you don't mind. The focal tree in the center has so much character and the view is what I wish I could see when I look out my windows.
