Skywatch - always something



As I was walking home from the canyon, this happy cloud formation caught my eye.  After stopping to take sky photos, I noticed some movement in the desert scrub.  It was a jackrabbit and two deer.  I'll  save their pictures for another post.
So often when pausing to check the sky, much more is seen than expected.  Thanks to the Skywatch team: Klaus, Sandy, Sylvia, Wren, and Fishing Guy for hosting this fun photography meme.  To view more skies from around the world or to share yours, visit Skywatch Friday.

Wonderful panoramic shot ... amazing sky! I was about to ask if you merged several photos ... then I read your response to Brenda. I learned to do this with Photoshop Elements but seldom think to put those skills to use.
Hugs and blessings,

Always a good idea to be alert and observant of both the big and small. This is an excellent panorama shot that so represents the southern AZ desert.

Love your pic! I showed it to hubby and he thought that it was "stitched" I asked him what that meant, so he explained (he's taking a class in Photoshop).The clouds are in a gorgeous formation!

Wonderful panoramic view with vast landscape! The cloud formation looks like rays of light spreading out. With a lone cactus in the foreground I like the composition.
