SKYWATCH - Who Has Seen the Wind (North Shore, Lake Erie)



A lot of the SWF photos I’ve posted lately have been sunsets. With the sun slipping below the edge of the Lake every evening the year ’round, the most interesting and dramatic skies with the best unobstructed views just seem to be over the water at the end of the day. After so much red and orange and magenta, I’m really pleased when I can occasionally catch something intriguing during the day! When I took this one, the sky was filled in interesting patterns and shapes. Whether you think of them as friendly contrails or not-so-friendly chemtrails, they do make for some pretty designs as the winds at differing elevations whirl them around the sky.

I love the designs that contrails/chemtrails make in the sky... as if they are drawing a picture for us to enjoy. So interesting! I have seen days when they sky was absolutely full of them!

The patterns in the sky are perfect for SWF.

We all enjoy the skies and clouds in all its forms and shapes and patterns. Thanks for sharing.

I loved seeing these, how lovely! We don't get them where I am, so thank you for sharing your photograph of them on SWF. I love the peace quote too.

Very cool, Deborah. Yes, intriguing.

Hmmmm. Who HAS seen the wind, with a nod to W.O. Mitchell and Christina Rosetti?

Wren said...

Sometimes I forget those trails aren't a natural phenomenon.

A nice capture, good sky watch post.

Beautiful designs in the sky! Isn't nature magnificent. I think Bobbi is right, an unseen hand writing to us! Beautiful shot! And you're welcome to show up on my doorstep any time!

Nice picture.I like looking at crisscrossing chemtrails in the sky even if they are not so friendly. I saw Lake Erie for the first time last summer! which is unbelievable considering I live in SW Ontario. We always head to Lake Huron and Ontario.

Love the patterns! Since I go to bed so early, I seldom get sunsets. Most of my photos are blue skies and the occasional sunrise!

Lin said...

fun cloud patterns, one of our writers in our group wrote a poem about clouds and how she as a child imagined them as different animals.

Hi
Love your shot...the trails make an interesting composition. Thanks for dropping by my blog...have a great evening.

Louise said...

This one is funny. It looks like a plane was flying in circles for one of them!

Nice capture!

Jim said...

Hi Deborah, that one plane must have seen you and did a quick Uie.
Happy Skywatching!

Lakshmi said...

love those little swirls and patterns created on the sky

Rose said...

I like the designs in this...and I tend to think of them as friendly contrails. I remember when 9-11 happened, apple picking was just starting and there were days and days when there wasn't a one in the sky. So to me, they are a good thing.

Those circles are so interesting - vapors and wind are great sky tools.

Denise said...

This is such a beautiful photograph and a lovely contribution to SWF. Thanks for sharing it.

Aleta said...

Wow.. Love seeing the wind in that picture.

fishing guy said...

Very nice captures of the clouds and contrails.

Arija said...

Sometimes they hang about like teens at a street corner, cometimes they disperse quickly scuttling in all directions, somethimes lit magically by a sun not yet risen, but always interesting.

Mary said...

Such pretty patterns in the sky! Happy SWF. :)

That's a lovely swirl in the sky. I love the intense light on the deepening blue.
