That is really pretty :-) I love those lightweight clouds.

I played along today but not sure what I caught... (he-heee)!

Have a great Friday!

Looks like you picked the right camera! These shots are terrific. I'm wondering what camera you used. The three palms are great as are all of these. Gotta love our California blue skies!

Tremendous shots as always, thanks for sharing.

Cheers and have a great weekend!

I love the picture in the bottom right. Reminds me a bit of Aruba...where I'm headed in a couple of days. Can't wait to see palm trees and beautiful skies instead of clouds and snow :)

Great pictures and 'ku.

Karen said...

How lovely! It's cold and icy here--and since I have yet another cold, I won't be going out to take any pics. But I'm certainly enjoying yours!

The one in the top corner has clouds that look like washboards! I love the orange hues in the long one on the right.

You always have amazing shots. :)

Thanks so much for sharing them and playing along.

Gorgeous photos of the clouds. I love the orange stripes of the sunset.
It's cool that we can see tiny snowflakes fall on your warm-weather photos. ;-)

Nice haiku as well.
