11/22 Dramatic Skies

Dramatic Sunset Skies
11/22 Give Thanks for Dramatic Skies
Breathtaking / Striking / Impressive

River Sunrise - But not today!
No, your eyes are not deceiving you, I posted this picture in the post about the number 4 earlier this week. I had great intentions to get a beach sunrise photo since my husband had to be at the airport by 6:30 and even though I would have missed the actual sunrise, I thought I would have gotten some dramatic skies. However, today was a misty, gray day here in Florida and there wasn't even a sunset shot to be had which meant I had to pick a shot taken earlier this week. The prompt was for a phone shot and luckily I had this one already and cropped it from a square to a 2x3 print. I was happy to use it, because I like the birds on the top of the fence, the cart path through the photo and the dramatic cloud formations. 

We have had beautiful sunrises which I have a front row seat through our large porch window, but it figures that the one day where the prompt is for dramatic, I get gray. I didn't get out once I came back from the airport and food shopping.  After doing a little bit of housework including some reorganizing of drawers/shelves, I got caught up on some of my favorite tv shows that I have missed including The Good Wife and Newsroom while knitting a dishcloth.  Luckily, I can watch HBO shows on the iPad where I watched Newsroom, by far one of my all time favorite series. The acting is excellent and the story lines are timely. I am sad that it is in the last season! Then I was switching between two football games, Iowa lost and UNH moves on in the playoffs by beating Maine before I finally ate a quick supper of a yogurt smoothie with frozen pineapple, banana, orange juice and vanilla yogurt. A light meal only because I bought some Pepperidge Farm cookies which may or may not make till tomorrow…

I was "tagged" by my friend Sandy on Facebook in a Black and White photo challenge which means five days of posting a black and white photo on Facebook and challenging others. This morning when I was getting caught up with the blog, I also went ahead and got my photos ready for the next five days. When picking the pictures, I tried to pick those that had good contrasts and textures. I do like how they came out. Which one do you like and why? ( You can post anon below) And anytime you want to see the pictures larger, you just have to click on the picture.
