Skywatch Friday - Pink Clouds

This week has seen some very strange cloud formations and colours.
The night before last, I stopped on my drive home from work and took these.








Sadly, I cannot show just how odd these cloud formations were, they do lose something when reduced to a photographic image but I think you can tell that snow is on the way.
Incidentally, it is snowing this evening ;-)
Happy SWF, other images can be found here

Interesting you should say they mean snow is on the way, because the first thing I thought when I saw those beautiful colours was that these are exactly the same as I saw the evening before snow hit the UK in January. The colours are gorgeous and your capture of them is lovely.

There have been some wonderful skies this week I think it is that time of year.

I especially love the second picture.

Here is a slightly different view of that hill.

Beautiful shots and colors, Chrissy. Don't know why, but they kinda remind me of scenery in Africa...although I've never been there. Just what I've seen on PBS! Really gorgeous... Happy SWF!

Gorgeous Clouds in the SKY!!

LadyFi said...

Such pretty colours. The first one looks like a poodle cloud!

Halcyon said...

I know what you mean. Sometimes the picture just doesn't do justice to what was really there. These are really nice photos though. I like the pastel-y muted pinks and blues. Very pretty!

Pat said...

What pretty splashes of pink in the purply clouds! Great shots!

Your photos are very spiritual. On her last weekend, Christina and I drove through the valley near Princes Risborough, on the M40. I remarked on the sky. "Yes" she said "It's just like being in Heaven"

I hope she was right

Wow. So very pretty! I love when the sun kind of highlights the tops of clouds, while the bottoms are in shadow. Very cool.
