Morning Clouds





One morning this week we had skies of a different color than gray!  The rest of the week of consisted of dark skies, snow and cold.  Winter is just not my favorite season.  Usually I try to have a positive attitude towards winter but this year I didn't even try.  And you know what?  It's ok!  I'm practicing acceptance instead.

Hope you have sunny skies where you live.  Look and see if there are any at Skywatch Friday.

I love the light! And I love you not trying to force yourself into liking something just for the sake of it. Spring will lighten up 2010 for sure!

That definitely is a pretty sky. The colors are nice and I like the silhouette of the mountain on the side.

Breathtaking! And I agree, I don't like the cold and the rain and the gray and I don't pretend to either. It is nice to be able to get shots like this in any season. I do love the silhouette of the mountain against those gorgeous colors! Have a great weekend -- in spite of the weather!

Beautiful!
I have learned to just roll with what nature gives me.Day after day of gray can be discouraging.

I'm practicing acceptance, too - sometimes unsuccessfully! However, it wouldn't be hard at all to accept that glorious sky!

oow - I'm with you on the hate of winter (I write this with an ice related accident plaster cast on my right wrist) - I'm looking for signs of spring daily but not finding any. January is such a long month and it's lucky that feb only has 28 days!

On the plus side - that shot is fab, and the snowy hillside makes it!

Acceptance is good. And it's easy to accept a sky so beautiful.

I love skies like this, the greys and navies with the colour shot through.

Lovely! Nothing cheers me us so much as sun on snow... We've got lots of those grey skies you talked about, but a bit of sunshine came along and made my day too...

Thanks for the vivid color. Our winters usually offer beautiful hues, but not this year. So thanks for that dose of beautiful sky!

Your winter sky photos perfectly describe the ambivalent winter feelings I share too. Very nicely done and since I'm originally from Idaho I was thrilled to see the Western Sky.
Happy Skywatch Friday!

That sky must have made a welcome change. Any signs of Spring with you? Even the tiniest ones? I agree, getting through the winter is hard.
