A View of Contrasts-Skywatch Friday

<>
We have had a very hot week her in souther Ontario breaking all the records for highs.  We are not complaining but it is unusual to have this hot at this time of the year.   I took this photo this afternoon on my way home from the gym.  I just like the dark green foliage with the blue sky and fluffy white clouds.   More great sky photos can be found here.
 For our American friends I hope that you enjoy your Memorial Day weekend and that is just as spectacular as Victoria Day weekend that Canadian had last weekend.   
Blogger is not putting my pictures where I want them again. Grrrr!

What a gorgeous capture, Valerie! Great composition! I, too, love the dark green colors, the blue sky and lovely clouds! Looks like a perfect summer day! We could use a little of your warm temps!! Spring came very early and then I think it said, Oops, we're too early, and brought back the gray, chilly, wet days we were expecting in February and got flowers instead????? Weird weather year! Have a wonderful weekend!

That's a beautiful sky and it does look great over the dark green foliage.

The deep, rich green that has exploded this past week, providing shade has been most welcome!

Has been too hot here, hopefully tomorrow we will get a less humid day. Love the shot, stunning.

The transition of the cold to warm weather produces beautiful clouds. These are really pretty!

Enjoy your weekend!

Valerie, this is such a lovely photo and so cool and peaceful looking. I am surprised you have such beautiful contrast and little haze dispite the heat. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.

A beautiful summery picture - May can be so lovely with the greens still fresh and abundant.
