SkyWatch: Contrasts




During the warmer months my wife and I frequently have dinner on the deck attached to the east side of our home.

One week ago Friday, as a frontal system passed over taking all of the humidity with it, the mixture of clear air, puffy clouds, and a bright sun combined to create this beautiful show of contrasts for our dining pleasure.

For more Sky Watch and to join in on the fun visit the gang at Skywatch

What a great sky you captured from your deck. Seems like you have a beautiful, rolling countryside view.

Wow. You live in a land that looks almost untouched by human hands. And the clouds are wonderful to see.

Nice photography.
