Skywatch Friday # 33

30 Mile Point, New York.  October, 2008.

30 Mile Point, New York. October, 2008.

Back in October, Betsy and I went to Buffalo, New York, to visit my daughter Kelly and her husband, Chuck.  On Friday they took us on a ride out in the country around Buffalo.  It wasn’t an ideal day for sight-seeing because there were showers off and on for much of the day.

One of the places we visited was 30 Mile Point on Lake Ontario.  There was a park there, and a lighthouse, which we enjoyed seeing.  While on the lighthouse grounds I took this picture of the lake.  It wasn’t raining at that particular moment, but you can see the clouds scurrying across the lake.

This is my entry for Skywatch Friday, a weekly meme of sky pictures from around the world.  To see more pictures, or to post your own, click HERE.

    Cloudy skies while sight seeing can give you some dramatic shots! Lovely!

  7. Carrizo Says:


    That is nice shot although the weather was not at its best. Buffalo sounds to me so exotic as the friend od “Old wild West”.

    Cloudy but I can see whites promising sunshine, too! Lovely shot.

  9. angela Says:

    You travel round a lot. Last wek you were in St Lucia…
    It looks like the clouds are in layers, none of them very promising weather wise.

    I love how the clouds seem to be mimicing the angle of the trees to the right. Pretty shot!

    Nice shot!!! Looks like it’s going to rain any minute.

    That’s a beautiful view! Pulling it up larger really shows it off. I love being up around the Great Lakes in nice weather.

  22. zoid Says:

    Very nice capture and the exposure is perfect.

  23. Susie Says:

    At least you had a break in the rain where you captured a great picture George. I can only imagine how beautiful it would be there on a sunny day.

  24. Ruth Hiebert Says:

    Those skies look somewhat threatening.The park does look like a great place to visit.

  25. Carletta Says:

    A beautiful shot George!
    I do like those scurrying clouds. Looking at that lush green glass I’m a little envious at the moment as I look at the field of brown out my window.

    My Sky Watch is on Carletta’s Captures</a

    Hi, I see what you mean about the sun but I did put it back in the sky. Lovely shot with the autumn colours of one of the trees. The clouds do seem to move very fast indeed.

  27. Brit' Gal Sarah Says:

    Great cloud base and far off horizon you captured George.

  28. Neal Says:

    That’s still a beautiful shot, even if the weather didn’t cooperate.

  29. Jen S Says:

    Hope you parked closed, since those clouds look like they could have broken loose at any moment.
