SKy Watch Friday


Ok---I love ABC Wednesday but now I am going to try-at least for today_SkyWatch Friday. (I feel obligated to visit everyone on the list when I do this as it seems only the right thing to do which is why I have resisted. There are many skywatchers!!!) A storm was rolling in and it started to rain just a little bit after I took this shot.
I hope you have a chance to drop by Tom's and either sign up or visit some (if not all!) of the skywatch team!
I made it through the 179 on the list...yeah me! and saw some amazing things! the sky around the world is lovely.

  6. Glad you joined Sky Watch...you got a great sky here. I think I visited every one a time or two, but if you plan to visit everyone be prepared! It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

  10. Hello there my friend.. :O)
    Neva I never expect anyone to visit all, I just ask that you can visit as many as you can but do not let it spoil the fun of sky Watch or indeed blogging.

    Anyhow thank you Neva for joining in with your 'Stormy Sky' I do hope you enjoy it today and come back again next week.

  15. Hi Neva, welcome to sky watch. Though I am a relatively newcomer myself. It is quite a moody shot - rain or snow?.

    ReplyDelete
  16. That is a beautiful house. I love storms, and I love watching them.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Great shot. It usually takes me two days to visit all or most on the list. There are so many good and interesting sites.

    Thanks for the visit,
    Troy

  19. la photo est très belle, mais vraiment elle semble inquiétante.

    the picture is very beautiful, but it seems really disturbing.

  20. "Louis" is happy to see you "Skywatching", Neva!

    Those storm clouds remind "Louis" of summer skies in his native Texas Panhandle.

  21. I know what you mean about visiting blogs...I always feel like a snob if I don't visit other's blogs when people leave such nice comments...I have just spent the last two hours trying to visit as many as I can....it is fun though, like a trip around the world...great photo, by the way.
    Cheers,
    Scotty

  22. Welcome Neva, and what a beautilly serene photograph that is (with a touch of dark menace!) :)

  23. My wife got the whole lawn mowed and the grass was wet so it took an extra hour to clean out the mower. I wonder if you got the rain you talked about? This is a nice skywatch photograph.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great shot - very dark and menacing!!!

    I too am overwhelmed by the number of people doing Sky Watch - with my phone lines I can barely visit all those that visit me!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Let me say I am pretty glad you joined us, even if it just to give it a try.

    And you make a nice entrance with the house under stormy skies!

    Hope you enjoy.

  27. Not the way I prefer the sky!

    Is the car hesitating in front of the four garages?

    ReplyDelete

  50. Hello again Neva.. just called back to see how you did and rad a few comments.. Seems you did very well. I hope you enjoyed it and come back for more.

  51. Welcome, Neva!

    This is a very nice shot. Very soft and inviting despite the stormy sky.

    Just do what you can. I try to visit as many as time permits - some weeks more than others. No one is keeping track. I think the only thing I (personally) notice is if there is someone who does not comment on any blogs. But everyone understands time limitations. Come back!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Neva---You can do birds with that nice camera of yours. I have a Canon Power shot--not a big as yours. the eagle pic was fairly easy because there were 2 eagles lazily going in circles in the sky. I have to find them and then zoom in until the object is fuzzy and then i hope and pray and take the pic. Dumb luck counts. MB

  53. The lamp post adds just the right touch and counters the threatening sky. Lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Beautiful sky!

    And thanks for visiting me...I did some correction on the post and a note on your comment...Northern Lights IS the Aurora Borealis...but my "Northern Light" reference was only regarding the extended daylight hours in the very northern U.S. and other northern places in the world - not quite "land of the midnight sun" though :) ! Sorry for my confusing terminology on the post.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Great Sky watch photo. Very dramatic.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love this picture of the storm coming in...my pictures are sometimes dark but yours has such a mood to it....now I am so curious about that house???? Well nice neighbourhood there and nice house...I think I like the house best...(grin)...thanks for visiting me..wonder if you got to all of us???..cheers from the wild west coast.

  60. You captured this photo just right.

    ReplyDelete
  61. That house looks like the place to be with that storm coming in! I got a lamp post in my skywatch too, but I like how yours is lit! Good for you to make a visit to everyone who participated. I didn't get a chance to this time, maybe next week!

  62. Hi Neva! Here I am for the weekly visit… ;)
    179? did you comment on all of them; it must have taken you the whole Friday and Saturday... ;))
    Must confess that I prefer the Golf Club... ;)

    Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!
