Sky Watch Friday



Once again it's time to scan the skies. And thanks to Fishing Guy, Ivar, Klaus, Sandy, Wren and Louise, we have Sky Watch Friday where we can enjoy beautiful photos from all over the world.


These photos were taken a few months ago, before winter brought us gray and brooding skies. I took them looking over the Delaware Bay, along Beach Drive, where local residents like to sit and look out over the water, and wait for the sunset each night.



A single gull sails over the water, beneath the gathering clouds.

What a wonderful place that bench must be to sit on! And the gull is delightful in the cloudy sky. It does so look like a winter sky. Will spring be here soon? I sure hope so!

Daryl said...

Oh I could sit there a long time and just gaze out over the water and day dream .. thanks for sharing such a lovely sky and bench.

What a cool place to sit and watch the clouds and the weather all around!

Deborah Godin said...

That's a great stormy looking sky, and the gull riding the wind is wonderful!

Louise said...

I love it. The white sand attracts my attention, but I agree with Daryl about just sitting and looking.

Janie said...

I can see why the bench on the ocean front is a popular place to watch the sunset. Beautiful gull pipc.

Excellent shots, I would love to spend an hour with a hot coffee and sit and enjoy the view from that bench. Thanks for sharing with us.

Cheers!

That's one angry looking sky!

And one helluva brave bird too!

Great view with the sea... it must be five years or so since I last saw the sea... I really must try to get to a beach this year.

One picture to remind us of what we can look forward too Bobbie and one which we can long to see behind us.
The gull was happy enough though.
Thanks for sharing.

Love the beach scene and the seagull against the cloudy sky! Just beautiful! Thanks for sharing, Bobbie. And hooray for the equal pay for women! It's a good day today!

Trannyhead said...

That bench looks SO inviting. It makes me want to have a seat and take it all in!

A dreamy day, a stormy day,
a seagull tried to fly away,
but Bobbie snapped a photo off
and captured both for all of us!

Michele said...

Seeing the single gull through the sky is an amazing photo... great capture.
((Hugs))

Nice one, Kathie! Pretty cute!

PJ said...

I just love these, they're perfect. I think the gull says it all. Happy SWF!

Jeanne said...

Sunny or stormy that's a wonderful spot to enjoy the water.

Ruth said...

I would love to live by the ocean. I did for a few years but got stuck inland some how. Lovely, inviting photos.

Tranquility said...

Wow - just look at those clouds rolling in...

Shelly said...

Once again you've made me want to make a visit to Cape May, I could be one of those bothersome tourists ;)
Beautiful photos Bobbie!

bookbabie said...

I wish I was at the beach right now, in Florida:) Nice shots!

Tarolino said...

Very wintery shots. Grey skies seem to be your mood this week too. Still I love picture number two. The clouds have structure and the gull looks so free up there.

What wonderful wintry beach scenes ... I love the first one especially! I participated at Happily Retired Gal and Sacred Ruminations on Friday but haven't had time to do any blog visiting for a few days. I'm doing what I can to catch up this evening after being away from home all day.
Hugs and blessings,
