The skies offered a variety of things this past week:

This is a seagull flying above the parking lot at Walmart.

I heard and spotted the plane before I saw the sun rays coming from the cloud. I wasn't fast enough to catch the sunrays directly on the plane. See the plane at the left side of the sun rays? Enlarge by clicking if you can't.

A ray of hope through the treees before the storm?

dot said...

Beautiful sky shots! I wonder why there are always birds at Walmart.

Carole said...

These are all wonderful, but I love the seagull flying over the parking lot. Why is it, I always wonder, that they like parking lots so much?

leslie said...

Amazing shots! I love the clouds and all, but especially the one through the trees. (just my taste)

Sandy Carlson said...

*gasp!* You caught a bird in flight! That has been very difficult for me. Very nice photos, Paulie.

lissa said...

Cotton candy clouds - that's a nice title for that shot.

The one with the tress is nice composition. Somehow shooting the sky through trees always comes out in such an interesting ways.

They are lovely. You caught the bird at a good angle, and the dark skies are so broody! I like ominous skies. Bye for now!

BOA LEITURA

granmal said...

Your right, a lot of good picture to choose from. I also agree with Dot, Walmart and Target you almost have to dodge the birds to get into the store.

Sol said...

Beautiful sky....It`s amazing how fast the light and the skies positions change. That`s what is so fascinating. Have a nice day.

Travis said...

I love all of these sky shots. Thanks for sharing them. I also like the one through the trees. Nice Work.

gmj said...

Great shot of the plane and sun rays.

I think NaPoblomo,sp, whatever is doing a month thingy. No I am not participating. I don't like being tied to blogging every day. I have other things to do. I almost didn't do a Photo Hunter post today.
