skywatch in plainview, new york


please click on photo to see more puffy cloud details



as I walked to my car in a
parking lot in plainview, I couldn't help but notice the huge expanse of clouds in the sky before me. the view was such that I needn't look up to see the massive puffs of white cloud as they floated by. the one pictured here on the right reminded me of one I had seen at the exquisite "about new york" blog a few weeks ago. perhaps they are cousins? what does this cloud look like to you?

to see more lovely skies, please go here thanks to klaus and his skywatch team sandy, ivar, wren, fishing guy, and louise.

Lovely fluffiness, LH! (BTW, does this mean you also know Elizabeth? Isn't she great?)

The cloud on the left reminds me of Australia when I turn it upside down.

Beautiful picture, and they do look similar :)

I'm not sure whether we will be able to see such beautiful skies after a decade or so. You may wish to see this… Height of Cruelty

Well, now that you ask, it looks like some thing is floating through the air by stretching out its arms/wings to its sides. The hole in the middle really isn't going to help it to float, but that's the way it goes.

You can just tell that the sun is boldly waiting behind that cloud on the left. Great SWF capture over Long Island!

Puffy clouds against a deep blue sky — very unusual for me, and I love it! Happy Skywatch Friday!

It's a cute little cottonwool ball floating away.

Super skywatch. Love those billowy clouds. Could easily be a Florida sky!

Beautiful puffy white clouds on gorgeous deep blue skies!

Yes, I think they are related.
Maybe it is the hole in it?
Not quite sure what it reminds me of yet......
thanks for linking!

Nice cloudy sky picture but I was struck by the old Mercury. Boy those were the days.

Gorgeous blue behind and around those clouds.

Isn't it amazing how blue the sky is with that pure white cloud? It must have been a glorious day.

I love how the blue of the sky gets darker as the eye moves to the right. It give the photo a very dramatic effect.

It looks like Snoopy doing a snoopy-dance!
Beautiful clouds in a big blue sky. Great shot.

It looks like a cloud that is ready to spawn off into four separate clouds! Nice colors and lighting. Thanks for stopping by at my SWF post...

I enjoy the clouds/sky so much. Always walking around the yard looking up. Beautiful picture.
