Skywatch Friday: Puddle Sunset

Every now and then an accidental shot turns out better than most intentional efforts. The other evening, after yet another rain, I went out to see what the sky had to offer. My battery was running low, so after I got a few more-or-less ordinary, but pretty, pictures of the usual late winter north Texas sky, I went in to swap the battery out for a fresh one. Things were getting pretty intense, color-wise, so I stepped out the back door into a puddle, and looked down to see what opens the post. Who could resist a shot like that?

Two examples of the earlier views appear below: nice to look at, but pretty much what I've become used to since I started contributing to Skywatch Friday.

Well, it's off to errand-running and a full afternoon and evening of teaching, but I did want to wish everyone a great weekend. May the colors be with you--and happy Skywatch Friday.

They are all beautiful shots, but the first one with the reflections in the water is fantastic! Wow! How often are we able to catch one like that!!! And the bare trees against the pastel sky is always a favorite for me! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

These would be fun to do as pastel pieces.

Lovely shots, all of them--but you're right, that first is something special.

I would love to do more "puddle skies" although out here in the desert it can be difficult :)

This one has wonderful colour in it.
