The Colors of Winter (SkyWatch Friday)

My Skywatch offering this week has been a surprise to me. I've just found out the past couple days just how colorful winter can be around here. A little sun can do some stunning things in the winter. I couldn't pick just one, so here are my 5 favorite from the past 24 hours.

A monochromatic snowfall in the early evening.

A contrasting of the starkness of the snow and the tree against a pastel colored sky.

Clouds holding back the light from the right side of the sky.

I like this one because of the yellow clouds and the large shaft of light that is actually going up from a setting sun.

A pink and blue late afternoon moment. The pink is reflecting on the snow covered lake.

Be sure and check out the sky from the vantage point of others around the world by clicking on the emblem below! Happy SkyWatch Friday!!

For those of you looking for my latest art, I apologize but I've been working on holiday orders and those are a secret until after the holidays. I have lots of ideas in the works and will be working through the holiday season so keep watching.

I like all the photos, but particularly the ones with a hint of pink - perhaps because that suggests warmth and light.
