Sky Watch Friday # 3

This ia a road trip I took Sunday 11-23-08

About 12:30 pm Entering Jeff CityAbt 12:35 leaving Jeff. Pic taken on the Bridge over Mo river.
Abt 2:20 pm

Abt 2:25 pm

About 4:00 pm
The Starling picture was taken at my friends home. It would have taken 10+/_ pictures put together to show the mass of birds in the sky. There were 1000's. It was 1999 when I saw this for the first time.
These birds now flock in mass. And fill up trees. It is amazing to see the multitude.
These 2 pictures were taken about 4:15 pm. It felt like 9pm. I could not believe it was getting dark so soon. What was strange was this view with light was to the east. And west was dark.

Abt 4:17 pm
The massive amount of traffic in St. Charles is one thing I do not miss.
I love the 2 lane highways of Lake of the Ozarks area.
And the views on the country roads.
Where I am at now.

Yes I went back to Sr. Louis. I was able to see 4 friends.
What a joy it was. Will show pictures soon.

Wow, such a varied mix of sky photos. I loved them all. Especially the action shots!
I don't like Daylight Savings either. It's so dark so early that if I don't get up by 4am, I feel jipped of daytime :P
