“Artist’s” sketch of today’s Sky Watch Friday photo

We’ve had some REALLY pretty skies the last couple of days, and I’ve been taking photos. Not feeling otherwise inspired today — and having the aforementioned lovely sky photos — I decided I’d do Sky Watch Friday.

Then the intermittent computer network problems we’ve been having the last week or so became… um… mittent again. (No, “mittent” isn’t an actual word.)

Therefore, I bring you an “artist’s” sketch of my Sky Watch Friday photo. I am the “artist.”


If you’re not good with childlike drawings (or perhaps even if you are), that’s the moon as seen through the pine trees. And, no, the moon isn’t full in real life. But I’m not so good at drawing full moons, much less trying to draw a waxing gibbous (bigger than 50 percent toward full) moon, so it’s full for the purpose of this post. Gotta love being an artiste!

And Ed thought I was a little crazy when I insisted he buy me some Crayola markers. 🙂

Tropical depression Fay finally started clearing…

This is what I saw.


I took this photo at 6:10 Wednesday evening. When I went into Curves about 30 minutes earlier, the sky was filled with HUGE puffy, dark clouds like the ones at the bottom of the photo.

The new Sky Watch Friday Mister Linky will be posted at 3:30 p.m. eastern Thursday afternoon. Or is it 2:30 p.m. eastern? Or 4:30 p.m. eastern? (I’m SO bad at figuring out what time it is where I am compared to 7:30 p.m. GMT.) Whatever time the new Mister Linky is put up, I hope you’ll join the fun.

Sky Watch Friday

The “power”…

I posted this a few minutes ago, but I’m pulling it back, because I decided it’s Skywatch Friday-worthy. 🙂

Actually, I’ve been meaning to do Skywatch Friday for awhile, and I decided to strike while the iron was hot.


I got started with this tonight, because I wanted to remove the power lines in the original, which is here.

I’m glad I figured out something decent… because the original file is gone. I forgot to make a copy of it when I started cloning. OOPS!

This is the first time I’ve done any heavy-duty cloning. I’m pleased with the results. 🙂
