SKYWATCH FRIDAY (Over Lake Michigan)



I thought these were verging on the abstract with the horizontal bands of colour. We had violent storms a couple of days ago and now the weather is slowly clearing.
These pictures were taken over a couple of hours yesterday evening and you can see the gradual improvement.
As the sun slowly broke through the clouds, the first couple of sail boats appear............
Soon to be joined by more as the first patches of blue sky appeared
Until eventually there was a whole flotilla of white sails and more blue sky than grey - HURRAY!
