Just a few interesting visible wind phenomena,
a contrail twisted by an upper atmosphere wind stream
oops, this is a bit of a ring-in, I saw some crows flying overhead,
did a fast reaction body twist and snap . . . gotcha!
A layer of cloud sweeping in,
can you see the associated wind turbulence that is whipping up
the clouds into a frothing surf?
When the wind does that at ground level where you cannot
see it, it can toss and topple a plane on landing,
not pleasant for anyone. Airports at some locations are closed
and all traffic diverted under such conditions.
Enough of the lesson in meteorology, here is some gentle
eye candy, just some cumulo-nimbus at sunset.
Don't you just love watching the sky?
Lovely Arija, meteorology stuff and all. Love the last shot. Beautiful, have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
i like the wind-swept contrails mixing with clouds. the color in the last is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Beautiful, delightful, fanciful, colorful skies and you've captured them all, Arija! Thank you!ReplyDelete
Those winds make for beautiful photos, but a rough ride in the planes! Indeed, sky watching is a relaxing way to pass the time.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing these sky shots. There is no end to the beauty to be seen when looking to the sky.ReplyDelete
Surfs up! Great shots!ReplyDelete
Lovely shots. The wind can do beautiful things with the sky.ReplyDelete
That last looks like a watercolor, Arija. I like skywatching with you.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous clicks enhanced by your comments!ReplyDelete
I enjoyed the lesson in meteorology! And the eye candy. I do love looking at the sky, our stars have been shining so incredibly bright lately. That makes me wonder. Sometimes when we're really lucky we get to see the Northern Lights here.. Do you get the equivalent of that (Southrn Lights?) there down under?ReplyDelete
No, unfortunately not. Although we are in South Australia, it is still too far north for that incredible light show.When I was a child in Latvia we sometimes got the red/orange flashing lights in the summer, around August. I was too little to be taken out in the middle of the night on those super cold nights when the Northern lights flash.Delete
amazing... it does look like frothing surf!ReplyDelete
I never, ever tire of watching the sky. These are gorgeous shots - thank you.ReplyDelete
Such a variety of clouds in your skies. I'm going to start looking for those twists. Thanks for the meteorology tips and great photos. I watch the sky because it tends to change faster than most of nature.ReplyDelete
Als wärs ein sanfter Seidenschal...und zum Schlus noch eine wunderschöne Abendstimmung...ReplyDelete

Hello Arjia :)ReplyDelete
magnifiche nuvole bianche in questo tuo cielo così azzurro !!!
Woosh! ... I love that top pic .... a plane has just jetted by heading off to some far flung corner of the world. Sky-watching is like seeing an ever-changing masterpiece and we all interpret it differently.ReplyDelete
Beautiful shots ~ Love the capture of the bird soaring high and strong ~ ^_^ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting.
The 4th one looks like the ocean with a foaming white wave about to wash up on the shore. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
All glorious Arija, especially that last shot!ReplyDelete
Wonderful skies to see...ReplyDelete
Wow, you know so much about meteorology. Beautiful shots of cloud and wind formations, and the sunset is lovely. Thank you for your nice comments on my post. You are so observant and detail oriented :)ReplyDelete
I do love watching the sky and your sunset is beautifulReplyDelete
Liebe Arja, gerne hätte ich auf Deine Fragen in meiner Foto-Poesie Dir mit einer Mail geantwortet, leider hab ich Deine Mailadresse nicht.ReplyDelete

Beautiful skies -- I am envious of your flight shot! I'm not agile enough to turn that fast!ReplyDelete
