Sky Watch Friday

I hope you'll forgive this 'old' picture but I haven't been feeling too good of late and so haven't been able to get out to snap something new.



Anyway - this was the sky behind Guisborough Priory last Saturday afternoon. As you can see - it was a fairly grey day. Almost as ashen as my face after this little episode yesterday!!!


For far more interesting sky watch pictures please visit Tom at Wiggers World.

These are very dramatic. The doorway is like the mouth of a large, angry creature--the the original intent, back in the day, I'd say! Great stuff.

There are nice photos with the dark against the sky. I like them, Gary.

I have a dear friend with Crohn's disease - for the last 10 years - and she goes through awful periods, too. I always feel so bad for her when it happens. Hope BOTH of you are cured soon!

Lovely SWF!

The 'almost' silhouettes look stunning! Coming off steroids is sickening :(

Lots of details in those ruins that makes for an interesting composition. Hope you're feeling much better soon.
