Awesome sky pictures! I didn't play this week - our sky has been pretty blah recently. We do so many of the same memes. I'm really enjoying yours.

Paulie said...

I remember coming here before but I can't find my comment so it must have had trouble with safari and I gave up temporarily!

Glad I came back. . . I love the one with the ominous dark clouds interspersed with the "fire" sunset. Such contrast! Gorgeous!!!!!!!!
