A Turkey Vulture Sunset For Skywatch Friday

by Larry on February 25, 2009

Turkey Vulture Sunset photo by Larry Jordan

There were multiple layers of clouds this day last week with several different type of clouds evident in the evening sky.  I enjoyed the pastel colors of pinks and grays with pieces of bright blue peeking out occasionally and several Turkey Vultures enjoying the thermals.

You can see more great sky photos by going over to Skywatch Friday!

Beautiful blended sky. No vultures here, only the financial ones.

I love the colors… and the vultures! I did Turkey Vultures on my last Saturday PhotoHunt post – I think they’re cool!

Hi Larry,
Nice view. The sky is like the sea – you can just gaze into it and lose track of time. TGIF!

They appear to float among the clouds with no effort, making flying look easy.

Oh you are right there are so many beautiful layers here of the sky. It looks as if it is a painted canvas!
