Watching the Texas Skies

Just wanted to share a few insights into the ever-changing Texas skies from the past week.

We've gone from clear, almost spring-like deep blue skies ...

Standing tall

... to the beginnings of thunder storms rolling slowly in ...

Thunderheads rolling in

... to puffy cotton ball clouds in a bright pastel sky ...

Goode Co. BBQ

... and back to crisp, clear breezy skies that have the birds all awake and ready to soar!

They always say that if you don't like the weather in Houston, just wait a few minutes and it'll change...

The eagle is magnificent and the clouds bouncing along just gorgeous.

I kind of wish I'd seen your post before I linked mine--but at least we're in different parts of Texas . . . Even the raptor shot is one I could have almost duplicated if I'd had my camera with me on the way home from work yesterday.

Nice stuff. I'll be back.

I really like that second one, but then I'm also a sucker for big fluffy clouds :-)

That sounds very much like Melbourne, Australia where the temperature can vary 20 degrees in fifteen minutes.
Love your shots.
