Sky Watch Friday- Spring Comes to the Olentangy

Monday morning, April 21, 2008. I waited a while on the gravel bar of the Olentangy River for the clouds to position themselves just right for this photograph. There was a gentle breeze beginning to pick up after a still and calm morning. Winds from the southwest, and the fluffy cumulus clouds were moving from right to left in this image. Things are greening up so quickly here around Columbus, even though I took this photo at the beginning of the week, this scene is so much greener now. Happy Sky Watch Friday.

  18. Before I read your description I imagined a breeze as I viewed this shot. Nicely done.

    I know what you mean about the green coming on quickly - I noticed today as I drove around running errands that our once naked-winter trees are sporting fine new suits of green, and plum, and yellow, and just all sorts of nice new colors.
