Sky over the Jolly Carter


A memory from a few Saturdays ago.

We were sitting down on a bench opposite the Jolly Carter, waiting for the Ring 'n' Ride bus. The autumn leaves had not yet started to fall, and while we waited we watched the sky.

Visit other watchers at Skywatch Friday.

Being near Manchester you have a large airport nearby, but these seems to come from further away. Well caught.

Yen said...

Looks like someone is painting clouds with a very fine brush.
Happy Sky Watch!

Jackie said...

I keep looking up wanting to see a Saltire in vapour trails. Hasn't happened yet!

leslie said...

Great shot - I'd like to check out that Jolly Carter, though. ;)

You could have counted vapour trails like sheep, fallen asleep and missed the bus. Watching the sky can be a dangerous practice.

Mary said...

I could use a pint right about now.

You must be near an airport. Those look like jet engine contrails, and they make for a very interesting SkyWatch photo.

Wow - looks like someone with a white pencil has been scribbling on your beautiful blue sky there!!!

First time I have heard about Ring and Ride. I used the Park and Ride in Oxford some time ago and that is something I recommend for all cities.

Ida said...

A great way to spend some time while waiting.
Looking at the sky.
Nice capture and moment.

It's a wonderful sky, Gelard! I like how the clouds make the lines ... Wonderful.

Thanks for stopping by me post too.

Wow! Are they what i think they are jet trail clouds? Lots of jet passing by overt here! Lovely shot! Mine is about HongKong skies, I hope you visit mine :)

Hilda said...

Intriguing. Are those clouds or trails? They seem to be criss-crossing each other.

NYD said...

Wow! You have so many wonderful photos here it's going to take me one heckuva long time to peruse them all.


I notice that you and many othe bloggers "sign" your snapshots. Do you reccomend that for everyone?

Gretchen said...

Nice chemtrails

Photo Cache said...

That's interesting if your leaves are just starting and much of the maples in my neighborhood have glorious colors already and this is Califonia????What's going on.

Love your blue skies.

Oil price falls must be passed on to customers, says Gordon Brown (see the Morrisons picture)

What's up with Martin's server?

Enigma said...

So glad you had time to just sit for a moment and enjoy the sky. We should all be so lucky. My moment was to watch the evening sky.

John said...

Great shot and nice composition!

marley said...

Very nice sky.

Alan said...

Certainly a nice way to spend the time while waiting. :)
