A Potpourri of Skies

On a recent evening the night came closing in on what was left of a cloud covered blue sky.


When you were little didn't you love looking at the clouds and picking out the shapes? Don't you still love it? What do you see? I think Miss Piggy was floating around looking for Kermit.


Days after the Harvest Moon I was out trying to capture a photo for my little granddaughter Lily. She had seen the big ole moon and remarked to her Mommy that 'if that moon comes over here maybe I can sit on it." Ah, the mind of an almost four year old!

The moon seemed very big and bright but there were many clouds the evening I was trying and they kept getting in my way. When I downloaded this one it looked like the 'Man In The Moon' was posing for me.

I was able to get this egg shaped image before I gave up.

Great skies. Lily would love to sit on that moon and float on those clouds. So would I!

These are terrific, Carletta, and what a variety! Isn't it wonderful when you are able to capture them like this! Love the moon, of course, but the first sky has such a variety of colors and clouds and all in one shot! Love it! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

These are all so beautiful. You're reminding me that I haven't been keeping an eye out for the moon lately although most days we've had too many clouds.

I saw a pig, and thought that that wasn't quite right...Miss Piggy it is!

I love that first sky picture, Carletta...it is just so beautiful.

and yes, the mind of a child...gotta love 'em!

Love the cloud photo's..and yes, it does look like Miss Piggy.

Nice moon shot. Children do say the funniest things sometimes, has she ever seen a picture of someone sitting on a crescent moon?
