Skywatch Friday - corrugated sky


The clouds were low over Edinburgh yesterday, with a corrugated effect over the allotment site that I pass on my way to work. I thought they matched the corrugated iron that for some reason seems to collect on allotments. We're desperately trying to get rid of the stuff we inherited with our plot. I have decided that this will be the year that it goes. Watch this space.

More skies from around the world are at Skywatch Friday .

That's both a dark threatening sky and a hopeful azure blue sky. The clouds almost look to be in 3D.

Glad to see a new post from you. I always enjoy my visits to Scotland.

Me, again. I just noticed the mention of John Muir on your sidebar. He was born in Scotland as you already know, but did you know that when he was 1l, his family came to the US and settled on a farm here in my state, Wisconsin.

A connection between the two of us.

Great sky effect. Good luck with clearing your space!

Looks a lot dreary there. We are gray sky and fog. Melting snow is a mess and we won't have heat to dry it out for a few weeks. We have very windy March days at the end so that will dry us out a bit. I think spring might be a faint vision away. Take care.

Hi Linda,
We've both been busy. I am trying to do some catching up on my blog reading. I'm glad I made it this far on your posts. I've enjoyed them all, but wanted to stop here to say how awesome that photo is of the sky above the allotment. Beautiful!

I'm sorry about the theft of your strimmer. I don't know what that is.
