Weird clouds in the backyard - Skywatch Friday


These are some pictures I took in my backyard a couple of weeks ago. It didn't rain that night but it looked like it would storm pretty good. The sun was peaking out around the clouds just before it went down.  Below is another picture of my neighborhood osprey with the pink and orange clouds behind him. The last picture I took standing on my dock looking down the channel right before the sunset. The weird clouds cast an unusual reflection in the water.
