Welcome to My Sky Watch Photos

I hope you get some pleasure from seeing the beautiful Sanibel sky. Every sunrise and sunset is different. On rainy days we usually see clouds with the sun shinning behind them and many times a rainbow.

The 'Grim Reaper'

These photos were taken at night in the month of July, during a bad thunderstorm. At first the dark clouds and lightning looked very threatening, but then the clouds took on a little different look, after taking a whole series of photos; it was surprising to see what appears to be the 'Grim Reaper' pointing the finger in the direction of the camera. I wonder what that meant?? Everyone here is still alive, thank goodness. I thought these photos would work well for the end of October. You must click on the photos and enlarge them to see the image.

That's frightening. The image in the last picture seems it didn't want to have its picture taken and trying to snatch your camera.

Please check my entry here.

Real mystic thunderstorm shots. My favourite is # 3. Clouds are looking like a giant shadow in the sky.
Have a nice SWF

Beautiful, in a scary way (but isn't true beauty always a little fierce?)

Great photos, good composition and good job capturing the mood.

Incredible Sky Watch Photos! I didn't realize Tootie was the same person as Sanibel Toot. :-) I always love your beautiful photography of the beaches there, but these sky photos were just so dramatic! Thanks for coming by my site, also!
