SKYWATCH FRIDAY (crazy clouds)



A couple of evenings ago I noticed this fascinating twisting candy cane cloud formation over the city. As usual I took far too many pictures of it so bear with me :)


At least I was reasonably restrained and narrowed it down to four!

For skywatch pictures from all over the world go to Skywatch Friday.

Your sky watch photos are outstanding.

Fantastic shots of the skyline, the last one is very intriguing as it looks like there is a blue and pink rope in the sky.

Cheers and Happy New Year!

Fascinating display in the sky. I have never seen it look like that. Gorgeous. I don't know what would have caused it to do that, but I am so thrilled that you shared. :O)
