November Skies: Vee's Note Card Party




Vee's Note Card Party sneaked up on me this month. I haven't taken as many photos as I would like. So I went through past November archives and found a photo featuring a November sky for each of the past four years. 



Pinky greys and blues coloured the early morning sky in Parksville in 2010. 
 

Garry Oak branches and leaves against a cloudy sky (2012).


Stunning gold against impossible blue (2011).
 

Silvery greys reflected in the ocean (2013). 

Seeing the variety of sky colour in these November photos encourages me. Not every day is dreary and grey. The sun does shine! In fact, sunnier days are forecast for the rest of this week.

Edited to add: This morning was beautifully sunny, but now, just after noon, the sky is dark and ominous. This does not bode well - we're having our "new" driveway concrete poured this afternoon. Will let you know how it goes.

In the meantime, I'm planning to visit Vee's Party and chat with all her guests. It's always a fun time. Everyone is made very welcome.

What an amazing array of colors in these cards. They are beautiful and I'm not sure which is my favorite!All would be welcomed in the mail. I did love the one you send me, so I know you actually print notecards!

Lorrie, those are beautiful. I especially love the ocean-sky photo! I see I'm not the only one who loves sky photos. :-)

Donna said...

Such wonderful variety for November skies! Yes, there's some color if you know when and where to look for it, LOL. Hope all goes well with the driveway pour!

I sure hope the weather clears for your project. LOVE looking up at the skies. Of course a photo of the ocean is always my favorite! Sweet hugs!

Vee said...

The variety is remarkable. I think a day like Stunning Gold Against Impossible Blue would be enough to take a gal over many gray days. If it doesn't rain hard, water is good when pouring concrete or so I'm told. Beautiful images, Lorrie, print'em up!

I love the sky any time of the year and have found November's to be as beautiful as any other month. Your photos are beautiful, especially the last one with all the greys. They'd make nice notecards! I hope the driveway work goes okay.

Each card is lovely, but the last one really speaks to me! There is wonderful gradation of colour and it seems to have movement.

Dawna Motz said...

Great idea to post the different years! I love the last one :) Again, I will be scramblin to even make the party! Having some friends in for a pasta supper and then will see if I get back to the computer. Hope all goes well with the driveway.

Beautiful postcard pictures.
Would we be bored if the sun
always shined? I guess we
must take the rain with the sun.

Now, these beautiful photos would make really great cards. Good job.

Spectacular photos - I especially love the reflections on the ocean. So calm and lovely.

Cheryl said...

I love this idea, Lorrie! How fascinating to look back and see the many variations on a November sky. Each is beautiful in its own way...even the gray sky, I think. Of course that view of the golden leaves against the bright blue sky...stunning!

Terri Buster said...

These are all very nice and would make lovely note cards!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Some pretty skies, and although I like the pink in the first photo, I'm drawn to the silver grey of the last one.

Andrea Dawn said...

Your 1st and 4th shots are my favourite, Lorrie. Hope your driveway turns out okay.

Sheila said...

Sunshine is in the forecast Lorrie so that's good news. I love your photos as always…especially the first and fourth. Hope the driveway project went well!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

What a great idea! They make beautiful cards! I might have to "borrow" this idea some time!

Mrs.Rabe said...

The clouds in that first shot are really something. I could take pictures of clouds all day!

What beautiful skies! Isn't it great that not every November day is grey.... Love the first and last shots! Thanks for sharing Vanc. Island's beauty with us.

Friko said...

That last photo is a humdinger! Not that the others aren’t great too, but . . . .

Mary said...

Beautiful shots Lorrie - especially love the golden leaves with that amazing shade of blue sky. A lovely set of cards for sure.
Hugs - Mary

Jeanne said...

It snuck up on me too and funny... I did the same thing you did. Search the November archive. I didn't find much so resorted to recent shots. These cards are absolutely beautiful. Good luck with the driveway.
