Sky Watch Friday

More beautiful clouds, mainly of the Cirrus varieties, they paint some gorgeous patterns across our skies.  Though the first photo is one my husband took about four years ago, of an oval ring cloud, I don't know if it was the remains of a 'fall streak' or 'hole punch' cloud.

Fallstreak Hole...Maybe?


Cumulus over Asda


Cirrus uncinus feathers


Cumulus and Cirrus over Malton


Sun about to set over the village


Sunset in Black and White


Beautiful Cirrus over Swinton


Sun shining through black rain cloud


And what happened here! - I caught the sun in the lens and WOW ' Cirrus and Cumulus fractus in glorious technicolour.  Weird, but I rather like it.

'cumulus over Asda' has to be one of the great British photo titles of all time.

I have been to Morecambe twice as I was visiting the Lancaster University on both the occasions. Managed to go to Heysham too this time. I like the area.

And I also enjoyed your pictures for this Skywatch.

Amazing how clouds can form many different ways. The first one is pretty unique I haven't seen like that, this is my first. Thanks for sharing and the visit I do appreciate it very much.
