Yes, I have seen that sky before, but I didn't know its name. It certainly is very unusual, isn't it? Hope you're having a good weekend.ReplyDeleteLeslie:7 August 2011 at 16:56I've seen skies like this before but never new it was called a mackerel sky. Now I know why. :D Hope your foot is getting better and better and soon you'll be able to have the cast off.ReplyDeleteJane and Lance Hattatt7 August 2011 at 17:59Hello Anne:The sky rather, like the sea, is always a source of endless fascination with its many textures and colours. The pictures you have captured of the mackerel sky are wonderful.We divide our time bewteen Brighton and Budapest and whilst Brighton provides us with the most captivating sunsets the Budapest sky is the most changeable, going from cobalt blue to a menacing black in an instant, or so it seems.We have found your most varied and engaging blog via Craig and are so pleased to have discovered you. We were sorry to read of your accident and hope that full recovery is just round the corner. We shall look forward to future posts.ReplyDeleteMark8 August 2011 at 00:29http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcrEqIpi6sgm.ReplyDeleteLinda8 August 2011 at 06:43Don't you wonder what caused that?-some sort of strange action in the sky. When I was in Provence I was out more in nature and saw all sorts of great clouds. I don't notice them so much in a city.ReplyDeleteBarbara8 August 2011 at 08:11Bonjour Anne,How interesting; I never knew that name! Nuages moutonneux en Français.I hope that you are doing fine.
