SkyWatch in Ocean Township

swftomSky Watch Friday is a photo meme with photos of sunrises, sunsets, blue skies, gray skies, pink skies, dark skies and any other kind of sky posted by bloggers all over the planet.

We went down to the Jersey Shore on Sunday, to visit my in-laws. I took photos of sunset while my kids and their cousins played in front of the house.

I took photos of some kids down the block who were staring at me taking photos of the sky. I then took a photo of the kids, sitting on their bikes, looking at me. But I don’t want to post kids I don’t even know. Too bad, it’s a cute picture.

Because I take photos of the sky, my own children have become more aware of the sky and the changes in the sky. I think my nieces were excited to watch me take photos of the sky. But the youngest really wanted pictures of herself; she had climbed high up in a tree.

Lots of people enjoy the Jersey Shore; my in-laws live a few minutes drive from Bradley Beach, New Jersey. Seeing small planes in the sky there isn’t unusual.

The guy in that plane must have some spectacular view. But judging from the look of that sky, he might want to put that thing down soon. Small aircraft don't play nicely in foul weather.

Love the first shot. Like a doorway to heaven -- minus the door.

Leora says

Good point about the plane in the gray sky. Some people really enjoy a challenge, a little too much.
