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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

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

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

  16. 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!

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

  30. 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.
