SkyWatch Friday Season 4 Episode 32

It was a grey, dank, damp day today and it rained - not heavily or steadily but intermittently.
The sky was sombre.
The ground was sodden and squelchy but it was milder than of late.
It was pleasant to be outside!
Thank you to the SkyWatch Team for their work and enthusiasm in organising and hosting this meme.

  1. Oh, I've been away so long but it's great to be back and catching up with everyone!

  2. Interesting how grey days give the rest of nature a chance to shine, hope you are enjoying all the sunshine filled skies in Sky Watch.

  3. The sky is moody and the scenes are beautiful.

  4. A wonderful photo essay!
    The shots are somber perhaps but it was your last statement of 'a pleasure to be outside' that brought hope for us all. :)

  5. I think we've all had a generous slice of grim and grumpy and gray skies! These are great shots though! Everyone is probably tired of hearing me say how much I love the bare trees against the sky, but I do find them to be so beautiful and the ones here are just that. Hope you have a great weekend!


  6. Rain rain go away.....

  7. Grey ducks on grey pond—
    do they think grey thoughts as they
    dip and bob for fish?

  8. O, I have great empathy for dank damp days, - we have had more than our share of them, but they have brought signs of spring blooming early. I lovely your photos.

  9. Thank you all for your comments.
    Sue, it's good to see you back :-)
    Pearl Maple - warm sunny skies are a delight to see
    Carver - thank you
    Carletta - it's (almost) always good to be outside provided one is wearing the appropriate gear ;-)
    Sylvia - I love bare trees against the sky too
    Mo - now London -or any city- is fairly grim in the rain :-/
    Magical Mystical Teacher - not much diving and ducking from these birds. They all flocked towards me expecting food! (They were disappointed)
    Hildred and Charles - thank you. Spring is nearly here!
    J Bar - thank you

  10. Even with the gray skies the photos and scenery are pretty.

  11. even gloomy days can be beautiful. nice shots!

  12. I love how the trees' bark is nearly black from the rain and I could almost smell the coming spring in these photos. Nicely done!

  13. Great atmosphere and charming skies in these wonderful pictures!

  14. Eileen, Lianne - thank you:-)
    Noni - it smelt . . . damp! Lots of rotting leaves underfoot - great mulch!
    Pietro - thank you so much

  15. It looks grey! Hope the sun has come out since you took these photos.

  16. Stine - it is an absolutely beautiful day today - heavy frost this morning and now bright sun, blue sky, fluffy white clouds - heaven!

  17. It's nice to see that you folks are enjoying dank weather, too. After our record snow and a couple of lovely sunny days, we're back to the winter grey--not nearly as pretty as yours, though.

  18. Beautiful wintry rainy day photos. The sun's out her right now but rain's on its way.
    Hugs and blessings,
