SKYWATCH FRIDAY - Clouds Drift In Like Waves to the Shore


Along the north shore of Lake Erie, seagulls head off to their nightly roosting-spot against a backdrop of high clouds that mimic the gently lapping of the water beneath.

I love the sound of gulls by the water. Rather hate them when at McDonald's though! LOL Nice shots!

These are beautiful captures Deborah...I love watching birds on the wing in the wind. I have just caught up on your blog and looks like you are having an interesting summer. I love your post on the spiders! One of the beauties of living on Haida Gwaii is that there is nothing predatory at all...no wolves, cougars, snakes, mean bears or big spiders which is nice but it can be a little difficult when you go off island and have to make a reality check!!! Have a great weekend.

No seagulls here but we did have clouds this morning. However, our high temps have burnt them off and we are in for another long, dry spell. My sister is up there releatively close to you right now in Olcott, New York on the shores of Lake Ontario. She sent me a pic on her cell phone of the most marvelous sunset yesterday. Enjoy your weekend!

Beautiful clouds, and the gulls look nice high up in the sky,against the clouds. Do clouds hang over the lake like the do the ocean shore?

I love these. It's fascinating the way clouds mimic the land below.

I love the tilt to the top shot - gives a sense of freedom and being slighty off tilt myself I relate :)

Dee said...

Wonderful pictures- I love the shape of the birds wings against the sky- and the dark trees-stunning!

Petty photo of the sky and how kind of the birds to cooperate with a fly through to add to your view. Thanks for sharing with us all.
