SkyWatch ~ Simple Summer Skies

The clouds roll up even in the summer time, the grasses have
dried off to just my favourite shade of Naples Yellow.


Dark clouds, light clouds, and a big patch of blue.

The lone tree supported by one of our patches of forest peeping
over the crest of the hill. A patch of bracken still shows green
dividing the dry paddock... ah, the joys of summertime...


Now click on the logo to see more skies, but please leave a
comment before you go.
Thanks to the industrious SkyWatch team we can all share
the beauty of our skies. Enjoy!

  11. Nice captures. I love the shape of that tree, there's nothing like that where I live. And no summer clouds, either, just winter blue skies with an occasional snowstorm.

  12. I have just visited a few blogs that have so many photographs of snow falling every which way.

    It is a relief to come back to a parched hill in South Australia.
