Late Summer Skies and Trees

For this week's Skywatch Friday post, here are some typical late-summer skies seen through the trees at Fox Run Park, taken recently while I was walking Socks. First up is a pine tree, followed by a beautiful Colorado aspen. These blue skies with white clouds are very common in the early afternoon; later those clouds can build into strong thunderstorms.
And finally, here's a sky which I though looked like it was painted in watercolors - not worth a post by itself but I wanted to show it anyway.

  2. Been seeing a Lot of clouds here also, not always white and fluffy. I love looking through the trees.

    Thanks for the advice. I have a 500GB external so will continue to move pics to it, and burn DVDs as a back up.

  23. Green leaves against the sky are something to appreciate at this time of year, when soon they'll be turning colour and falling.

    The last shot is lovely and delicate - definitely worth including.
