Darkness at Noon

A dark sky at 1:00 p.m. yesterday, but no rain for the past week.
.
Tons of earth have been removed from this construction site on prime real estate near the Knesset. In fact, last July I posted these same cranes, but they were lying on the ground, being painted. The fancy-shmancy residential Mishkenot HaUma will be built here.

You might find some brighter skies over at SkyWatch Friday. Hundreds of them.

Good capture of what's going on in Jerusalem. I'm curious to see this building finished.
Nice clouds, I'll join in prayer for rain!!

We have rain practically every day! Happy SWF.

No brighter Sky here, unfortunately.
As there was a blue period for Picasso, we, Skywatchers, enter in a gray period, for many of us.
We count on you to show the new building, Dina.
Have a Sunny week-end in your heart.

Atmospheric for photography but sad for my temperament- rain

Jeanne said...

Looks very dry. Those cranes against the grey sky seem to echo the mood of the construction it seems.

Oh yes it's dark, grey, winter sky period now! I wish both our countries will have lots of rainy days so that we don't have water problem in summer! :-)

Best regards from Istanbul,

It looks like a stormy sky. Hope you do get rain. Sorry I haven't been over here very much, our usage at work is being monitored so I need to be more careful.

Leedra said...

Seems like there are alot of dark skies this week. I posted from about a month ago, so mine are brighter.

Dina: That is a neat look at all the cranes in a row.

Louise said...

With skies like that an no rain, it must be a bit depressing. But the cranes add interest for a very nice photo.

Wren said...

Great photos - though the birders may be disappointed when they see the cranes

Kay said...

I'm wishing for rain for you. We're getting our share of winter rains but there's still always a shortage.

Oh Dina what dismal skies, bit like here, not so far away in Crete.

And cranes are cranes, at least until the storks nest on them.

Lovely photo, though.

Take care
