Sky Watch Friday: Before and After the Storm and Thursday's Moon

I took these photos in 2006, in La Pine, Oregon.  This first part is when the snowstorm was rolling in:

For all that we love blue skies, somtimes a huge slab of grey can be so much more dramatic.

As you can tell I think I like the "befores" more than the "afters"!

I could really see the storm brewing in your first photos but the moon photos were absolutely fabulous. Wow.

Hi Everybody, thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments. Now I am off to visit you. Donnie, I really liked the moon photos too. I took these last night, but I have a bunch more that I have taken over the past couple of years. Maybe I'll make a slideshow out of them sometime soon.

You did a marvelous job capturing so many pretty winter scenes. I like them better the next day, when things where brighter. Job well done.

Thank you, LV!

Wow! Those were really dramatic captures of the snow storm! It looked like it should have dumped two feet or more of snow.

I LOVE THE STATE OF OREGON.
