Skywatch Friday - 1 June 2023 Edition
Sunset at Island Park, Idaho, June 2013. Welcome to Skywatch Friday. Us in the northern hemisphere are plunging into summer. In the southern hemisphere everybody seems to be getting out their winter clothes. You folks in the tropics, we envy you.

Memories of May 2019 when torrential rainfalls lead to record floods in northeast Oklahoma. Keystone Dam was at maximum flow in this photo.

A view from 50 meters above my backyard on Tuesday evening looking to the southwest. Storms were rolling through the Tulsa area but missed us except we got good skies. I love blue skies as much as anybody but I also like a little texture and color every now and then. I hope everybody is doing well. I appreciate everybody who checks into Skywatch Friday and especially those who link their posts here.

Skywatch Friday - 4 May 2023 Edition
Welcome to a new month and week of Skywatch Friday. Here in Oklahoma new life is springing up everywhere. The leaves on the trees seem to be a neon shade of green. The snakes are out, the butterflies are here, the birds are building nests. It is a great time to be outside! Thank you for participating!!

Skywatch Friday 27 August 2023 Edition
Welcome to Skywatch Friday. I appreciate you being here and participating. Here in Oklahoma we had a brief interlude of Spring and now we are going back to winter. Freeze warnings and snow in some parts of Oklahoma. I'm having to dig out my winter clothes again. But hey, we have some rain and things are good. Could be worse. My sister is going back to Yellowstone very soon as a seasonal ranger again and the place she supposed to park her trailer has snow piled up the roof!!

Spring is here (in the nothern hemisphere). Nothing like the redbud trees to signal the season. In fact they are the state tree of Oklahoma.

March is coming to an end soon. It's been cold and windy here in Oklahoma. Rainy as well which has been a blessing because it was very dry.

Skywatch Friday - Spring is Here 2023 Edition
Spring is now officially here in the northern hemisphere. Here in Oklahoma it's kind of hard to tell but the tulips are just beginning to do their thing. The redbud trees are just now starting to bloom and the temperatures have started to get to shorts weather. Full blown Spring will be here before you know it!

March is a heart breaker here in Oklahoma. In like a lion, out like a lamb is going on. It is going to get bitterly cold the next couple days so the weather people are saying cover everything up you don't want to lose.

A superduper, loop the loop, ride at Branson, Missouri's Silver Dollar City several years ago when we visited on Spring Break. Son and Wife went on the ride. I held their drinks. I don't do rides.

Sometimes in February in Oklahoma, the weather gets very warm and sunny for a couple days. This shot is from a few years ago at a equine therapy facility in the rolling prairie north of Tulsa. That's my son on the horse with his therapist walking alongside.

A scene from February 2016 in downtown Tulsa at quitting time. The sun was just starting to set and I was going home. Sometimes you have to be in the right place at the right time for the photo.

A colorful sunset from back in February 2015 captured from my front yard. Sometimes you don't need to travel far for a great sky.

Skywatch Friday - Groundhog Day 2023 Edition
Meet Punxsutawney Phyllis doing her thing in 2013 our cranky 20 pound Maine Coon who we recruited every year to go outside so we could see if she saw her shadow. She never did warm up to the job and she is long gone now but we (by that I mean everybody but her) had a lot of fun. It was always a good idea to wear a heavy duty canvas coat and leather gloves when taking her out to see if we could see her shadow.
The days are getting longer but I'll tell you that February and March will break your heart in Oklahoma. It will be cold and windy. That's okay by me. I love hiking and not worrying about the snakes and insects is great. Plus there are a lot less people out and about.

Skywatch Friday - 26 January 2023
Welcome to another edition of Skywatch Friday. I appreciate everyone's participation. The above photo is from 2014, when I still worked. I had a cubicle facing a western window in a high rise with a direct view of the Arkansas River. I took photos almost every day in the winter of the sun setting. I hope everybody is doing well!!

A view of the CityPlex Towers in Tulsa. 2.2 million square feet of space in three buildings. Now it is a commercial property. Way back when it was the City of Faith Hospital and Research Center that failed back in the late 1980's. I love seeing buildings repurposed. The views from up top are wonderful.

This is a photo of Swan Lake here in Tulsa taken with a film pinhole camera that I had. I loved playing around with it way back when and am feeling the need to get back into it. It has no lens, just literally a tiny pinhole camera and you have to manually open and shut the shutter. No focussing, no zooming, no nothing. I use an iphone app to determine how long to hold the shutter open. Generally it was at least a few seconds of exposure required so I used a tripod.

First Skywatch Post of 2023
(The view from my office in January 2013, from back before I was a shiftless retired person. Hey, here we are! Another year! It seems like just yesterday it was 1986. The days are long and the years are short is what it seems like. Here's looking to a great 2023!!
