Sky Watch Friday







A storm blew through last week. No rain, just this spectacular cloud.

Summer is almost here, the snow is melting in the Sierra and we will be spending our time at our cabin or camping, comming back to lincoln every few weeks to pay bills and make sure all is well. We'll be off the grid and off the Web for much of the next five months. I will have some auto posts scheduled but usually I won't be in a place where I can link them. If I don't respond to your comments, I'm not ignoring you, just out of touch (hard to believe that in this day and age there are still places off the web.)

Fantastic cloud you have there. Not so sure that its not on fire.
Have a great time at the cabin, may all the bills be small ones.

Lovely shot! Pink clouds are always amazing.

Clouds almost always bring drama, don't they? Where I come from (the Owens River Valley), clouds like these usually bring promises they don't keep.

We'll miss you during your sojourn at the cabin--but hope that your break from "civilization" doesn't mean leaving the camera behind! Have a great time; can't wait to see what you bring back.

Beautiful sky!

Thanks for stopping by my PhotoHunt today. I understand your perspective about the issue. It is an important one. I would have e-mailed you but I'm on a different computer without my addresses.

Have fun in Yosemite--I've been thinking about going back there. It wasmy first National Park experience when I was 7. Our Mt. Rainier Superintendent is serving as interim superintendent at Yosemite right now.
