SkyWatch Friday

SkyWatch was originally Dot’s idea and is now managed by The Sky Watch Team of Klaus, Sandy, Ivar, Wren, Fishing Guy and Louise.

Sky Watch Friday starts each week on Thursday Evenings at 7.30 p.m. (GMT). If you would like to join in the fun and post your own photos, or just want to look at incredible sky pictures from all over the world, please visit their site by clicking on icon above.

I think these are the last of my Autumn photos, taken at Harper's Ferry in West Virginia a few weeks ago.


This one was taken in the Shenandoah's. The cow was on display at an open market, and the bright sunlight made him glisten.

Still in the Shenandoah's.
My last photo was taken in Norfolk looking towards the cranes at the dock yard.

Such a variety Denise! The leaves are still lovely where you are. I can't choose but that last one with the colors is a stunning image.

All great shots. The most beautiful snowfall I ever saw in my life was in Virginia. It is such a gorgeous part of the country. (I lived in Colorado for 36 years so I've seen my share of snow.)

Kathleen said...

Once again you have made my day with your shots!

Louise said...

These are all wonderful shots, but my favorite is the first. Something about that cloud just makes me smile.

Darla said...

the fall colors against that blue sky is beautiful, my favorite is the last one!

JennWasHere said...

Hi again, Denise, you sure get around---Shenandoah, Norfolk. Great pics. Hard to choose a favorite. I like the black cow looking towards the blue sky and I like the yellow leafed tree.

Lovely fall pics from my home state of WV! :)
I love the silhouette of the cow's head - very whimsy.
And you end with the Norfolk area where Hubs and I spent 30 years.
I have really enjoyed your post!!

Mary said...

Lovelly little yellow tree and I like the glistening cow! Cool!

roadgurl5 said...

These all are so lovely! I am also in Virginia and have enjoyed our beautiful fall foliage. :o)

Lilli & Nevada said...

These are all beautiful but i like that last one the best....

To answer your question about the photo with the hole on the beach it was taken at Bastendorf Beach on the coast about 2 miles from Charleston Oregon

Lew said...

If you had a shot from Bristol you would have traveled the entire state. Beautiful shots! My favorite is the Norfolk sunset.

Hope said...

Hi Denise, the autumn trees are so gracious giving pleasure with their golds and reds and browns until all their leaves fall and rest to nourish the tree from where they fell. Great photos Denise.

me ann my camera said...

Lovely pictures and the last one taken at Norfolk with all those cranes in the silhouette of the sunset are beautiful.

Webradio said...

Great serie of skies... The last one is beautiful !

The Tile Lady said...

Great Skywatch photos, Denise! Isn't it funny how we get SOOOO excited about the fall color, and then when it's almost gone, there is such a letdown. On to the browness, and it isn't even winter yet! :-) Thanks for commenting on my Skywatch--when I told my daughter (who lives in AZ) about the snow flurries, she called out to my grandson that we had snow already in Virginia, and he was so excited....it's 70 degrees, of course, there!
