SkyWatch - Late afternoon sky

Coming home from my specialist's appointment
I stopped at the post office to collect our mail

As I turned back from the PO boxes,
I saw this glorious sky

slightly to the lest it turned to zebra stripes

by the time I got to where the road has our
paddocks on both sides,
I let the dog out to run the last mile
and started shooting again

the light was splendid and the dog raring to go
but I just could not stop shooting

 to top it all off, a little video, just because I could . .
all are phone shots undisguised in any way.

Click to enlarge and enjoy!
Oops, for some reason the video did to load as video,
looks like I still have to learn a few things . . .

  21. Lovely cloud formations Arija! I especially like the effect in the second photo. Have a lovely weekend!

  22. Fantastic sky- what a womderful texture and stripes!


  23. When I was a little girl in parochial school, we used to get Holy Cards when we did something well; your second picture here looks the way those cards would represent God's blessings coming down from 'on high'. I don't believe that anymore, but I can imagine how a long time ago people would look at a sky like yours and think exactly that. A miracle of skies !
