OHIO SKIES FOR SKY WATCH FRIDAY IN THE BEAUTIFUL HOCKING HILLS

A SKYWATCH POST

skywatchlogo Beautiful skies from all around the world.

He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

“THE SKY IS LOW,THE CLOUDS ARE MEAN” EMILY DICKINSON

“The sky is low, the clouds are mean,
A travelling flake of snow
Across a barn or through a rut
Debates if it will go.
A narrow wind complains all day
How some one treated him;
Nature, like us, is sometimes caught
Without her diadem.”

Joe Todd says “As Always Thanks For Stopping By and if you have a chance check out ::”

I like your header, too, Joe. I'd much rather see a sky like that than those "mean skies"!

Great sky group. I agree - trying to read the sky can be difficult.

Beautiful Ohio skies Joe! Love that aerial view in the middle right collage.

And thanks for the plug... although I thought you meant that you would have a new button for yourself all created! LOL I totally misunderstood. :-)

Were you able to use the code I sent you and make one for yourself??

I love the collage. And Emily Dickenson. Although I wasnt familiar with this poem, it is perfect for skywatch and your pictures. Thanks for sharing.

Love the chilly collage. I stayed at a fire tower for 3 summers. Isolated but fun too. Beautiful Oregon scenery at the tower.

The previous post, Watery Wednesday is very nice too. MB

Great skies - very moody! I also like the angle on the tower! Is that the same tower you climbed a little while back?

Sharkbytes said...

great skies, Joe! Also, a nice view of the fire tower. Good memories for me there.

Skies are great, fire tower's scary-great. But I love the distant fields. Imagine old time farmers clearing out the woods to make those big open fields!

Ann said...

Is that your Ohio State flag at the corner of your collage?

JOE TODD said...

Ann yes that is our State Flag. Been having computer problems and have been gone a few days

Lovely winter scenes in your collage. I really like the perspective you used on the fire tower, that is a great shot. The Emily Dickinson quote is perfect for these photos.
