Sky Watch Friday - Happy Fourth!

July 4 Sky 5

Hi everyone. The sky was doing amazing things today and into the evening so as we drove down Court Street from HEB area, I thought I had to try and shoot the sky. It was beautiful and as usual, there's no way to do it justice but I tried to catch what I could. It was very cool to see the changing colors and clouds. We have finally gotten some much needed rain this past week and I thought we'd get some today but it held off though the clouds did look pretty interesting. Bottom left of this picture is where the clouds were darkest and it happened to be over the area where the fireworks are going off right now.

As I type this, I can hear the booming from the fireworks show down at Starcke Park tonight. We decided to skip it this year and just relax at home. I'm doing all sorts of things (craft, blog, read, listen to my music) and trying not to distract Mark too often since he's busy busy on his book. :) BUT, we did go outside to see if we could see any of the fireworks and I caught a few. This one is my favorite. Check out other Sky Watchers!
