SkyWatch Friday Season 4 Episode 13

Today is my grandson Elliot's eleventh birthday. It was a beautiful day after yesterday's heavy rain.
The day dawned clear and fresh. Though the photographs are a little blurry I rather like the effect.


We didn't see Elliot today but wished him Many Happy Returns of the Day. Next week he and his family will be moving back into their own house and it will be good for them all to have their own things around them again.

This afternoon was sunny and bright, with clouds gradually building. Tomorrow will be another dull, damp day so it was a blessing to have this wonderful day.
Thank you to the SkyWatch team for organising and hosting this meme.

  1. Lovely, delightful skies! Great captures! I like the first ones -- dark and mysterious and then the sun comes out with lovely white clouds! The way I like my days to be!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. What a lovely sunrise. I wish someone would give me lessons in digital photography--in the meantime, I will continue to get my inspiration from my fellow Skywatchers. Thank you for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  11. Glad you got a bit of blue, we seem to have had more than our fair share lately, not that I'm complaining! Dull today though, probably much like you're getting.

    Well done on getting a sunrise shot. I never seem to be up early enough for those! Mind you, short days are just around the corner and the sun will also be later getting out of bed. Maybe I'll capture one yet.

  12. Thank you all for your encouraging comments.
    I'm usually only able to get a sunrise shot because one of the dogs needs to go out at that time of day.
