Skies from the past month

Having spent the past 6 weeks on the road I witnessed some beautiful skies. While not photographing all of them was perhaps a mistake I did manage to photograph a large collection. Here are a some images from this past road trip for today’s photos. A few days from now I’ll be back in the Pacific Northwest with some new images, stay tuned!

    Hi Cecilla,

    It is amazing light. I could have gone back to the same location for days.

    You’ve got some fantastic captures, Kevin! So glad you had the opportunity to see such gorgeous skies and share them with us! I’m afraid you may be disappointed with the Pacific Northwest skies — we definitely have not had a season of colorful skies! But who knows, maybe next week will be different! Happy SWF! Have a great weekend!

    Hi Sylvia,

    I’ve been in Seattle for the past few days so slowly getting used to the cooler weather again. I do know one thing however, I would much rather be here during the summer than in Texas!

    The clouds over New Mexico are my favorite. Wonderful.

    Isn’t the lighting magnificent in the southwest and the western skies? New Mexico skies, my thought is, they can’t be beat.!

    What’s amazing about the southwest is how much there is to see and photograph. Everywhere you go something else comes along.

    Very stunning landscapes. The southwest has a wealth of scenery that evokes serenity and timelessness which you have expertly brought to view for us on Sky Watch… thank you!

    Thanks all,

    It’s hard to go wrong with such amazing scenery. I’m back up north in the rain now, should have stayed.
