SkyWatch ~ A Moment Ago . . .


All week the skies have been grey and bland or just plain bland
and I decided to sleep in and not post at all until I woke up to
this an hour ago and shot outside like a bullet.


They are much better enlarged . . .


These are just the first four


and if this week is like last week, then next week I may show
you some more of this week . . . confused yet? Ah well it was
pretty weak . . .



Happy SkyWarch to you all!
