SKYWATCH FRIDAY – Eye in the Sky (over Lake Erie)


We’ve been socked in with rain for days, and my stash of Skywatch photos is depleted, too, so I went out with my camera during a break in the rain (but not a break in the gray) and took this one of the only clouds available. When I got back inside and looked at it on my computer, I could see a pale mysterious eye looking back at me. I think it was worth a pair of squishy wet shoes.

Then late in the day the rain stopped, and the sky decided to make it up to us with a really glorious sunset that turned everything to crimson!

the weather is always a surprise-just like life-sometimes so boring then other times spectacular. nice photos

i see the eye--I could stare at the sky for hours on end--I limit myself though-- it is one of the best ways to meditate... staring at clouds and listening for their messages.

I does look like an eye in the sky!

Your sunset was a marvelous reward for your wait through all that rain.

Oh look at that spectacular show at the end of a gray day. The sky made up for the blah day by this gorgeous sky at the end.

That sunset is simply breathtaking; I would have braved the wind and cold air for a little glimpse of that!

PJ said...

Amazing how that eye shape seems to softly take shape as you gaze at the photo! Quite extraordinary!

And beautiful tiers of sunset colours in the second photo.

Indrani said...

You have an eye to capture the nature's eye. :)
The second shot is gorgeous.

A nice contrast between both shots. Somehow I like the gentle first one best.

Debra, Thanks for stopping by. I leave Ontario next week to head home and I have to admit I will miss my daily walk in the beautiful sand dunes. All I can say is if you are ever down this way make a point of dropping by Sandbanks Provincial Park...it IS beautiful.

Oh!! I like the second one!

mom/caryn said...

WHO-EEEEEE!! I feel like applauding here. Mother Nature did indeed serve up a mighty fine dessert.

I saw the eye immediately. Good work. You certainly lived up to your "Cloud Messenger" name with this photo.

Erin said...

you were truly blessed with a most beautiful sunset...lovely

Pouty Lips said...

I see the eye, nose, and the mouth. I see a whole face. Good eyes.

VioletSky said...

That sunset should mean better days ahead! Though, I like that first cloud shot, too.

We had 25C and nothing but sunshine today - marvelous!

david mcmahon said...

Great shots.

Lindab said...

What a bonus sunset after a grey day. 'Socked in' - I've only ever heard this used by Canadians - it's very descriptive!

Ruth said...

I love the foreground in the last photo. A perfect picture!

Kathiesbirds said...

Deborah, you had a winner on both counts! Excellent skywatch post!
