SkyWatch Friday - Keep Out The Rain

Friday, October 23, 2009

I thought this photo would express how we feel around here lately. We had such a wonderful warm summer that lasted longer than usual. Then when the weather turned, it turned all at once. Wind, rain, gray skies all day long. It seems like we ticked off Mother Nature. As I was leaving work this evening and heading to my car I spotted this. Blue skies on one side, dark clouds on the other. I don't know how much good the barbed wire is going to do to stop those clouds from rolling on in, but I did think this would qualify for my SkyWatch Friday shot.

    Hmmm...excellent skywatch shot...a photo of strong conflictions (I know, that's not a word, but it fits here)...I can see the blue sky, perhaps signifying hope...but the barbed wire as shown reminds me of so many pictures of the Holocaust...

    Like I said, conflictions!

    Have a great day!

  6. Louise Says:

    The sky is fantastic. The barbed wire really adds an artistic element. Maybe it won't stop the yukky weather, but it could be a symbol of how that weather feels.

  7. Linnea W Says:

    It reminds me of a rollercoaster...your weather can't make up its mind! Still sunny and warm down here! I'll trade you weather...

  8. Unseen Rajasthan: Thank you as always.

    cieldequimper: I thought I saw Betty looking our way.

    eileeninmd: Thank you for stopping by also.

    Small City Scenes: That's how my wife keeps me in the yard. ;-}

    Jacob: Conflictions can be a word just cuz you said so, and you're right it does fit.
    You have a great weekend too.

    Louise: Thank you very much. The fencing shows up much better in the photo thank it does in person.

    Lennea W: I'm not so sure you'd want to trade. We're pretty used to it up here.

  9. In the yard huh? We'll just see about that. Nice pic.

  10. My apologies. Abraham Lincoln's Blog is now taking comments.

    I like this shot. It looks like it would being in side of a prison.

  11. Steffe Says:

    I can understand that feeling. Grey skies for a few days over here as well.

  12. Lois Says:

    That's a beautiful SkyWatch!

  13. AB Says:

    Barbed wire and storm clouds - very ominous. And it makes for a good atmospheric photo.

  14. Curmudgeon Says:

    Hello. I found you through Sky Watch Friday. Enjoyed this photo--definitely ominous. Also enjoyed visiting the Floral Friday blog but couldn't figure out how to leave a comment over there without having to provide a link.

    Nice colors, and I love the barbed wire looping through it. I somehow missed this one in October :)
