This week we have had some wonderful days of blue skies and light fluffy clouds, which change at a moments notice.
Today though, while I was bowling, Lord L took these two pictures.
The first is Starlings take flight.
The second is just as the weather was changing and becoming threatening.
It is now bitterly cold.

As always a big thank you to Tom, Klaus, Sandy, to name but a few of the team working behind the sceans to make Sky Watch available to everyone.

Welcome To Spain
We spent last week in Spain. The weather was lovely until Thursday when storms broke out,
warm rain is not so bad though don't you think ?
However we did get out and about. These are a few of the pictures I took throughout the holiday.
1) My interpretation. A Flamenco Dancer.
I watched this cloud formation develop over an hour while I walked to Torremolinos. It collapsed a short time later.
2) Mijas an Andalucian Village.
Up in the hills, the village is charming.
It has breath taking views and equally breath taking hair pin bends in the hill roads.
3) Andalucian Lakes.
Really the three great Reservoirs which join.
Information gathered told us that if you see a house alone, miles from anywhere, then this is the home of a head facility keeper.
This is the home of the head keeper of the lakes.
I dream of having a home like this, with the views of course.
The lakes are severely depleted, rain is needed in the hills.
Where you can see the rocks at the waters edge, these should be submerged.
The general public can have their water supply stopped for several hours each day, to prevent abuse of this vital commodity.
This would not apply to holiday makers and hotels though.
Please take time to click on the Sky Watch Friday banner on my side bar, to see many more wonderful pictures from around the world, taken by other Sky Watchers.
My thanks too, to Tom and his staff from Sky Watch, for making this site available and user friendly to us all , to blog and share our pictures.
Please may I also ask if you would click on the Poverty Action Day banner in my side bar also and see what the united front is doing to address Poverty World Wide. Thank You.
