Welcome clouds

.
Clouds! We finally had some clouds one day this week!
But not rain clouds. Our rain season begins only around October.

So pretty, so welcome. And they brought the high temperatures down by two degrees.
I just have to cross the street and walk a minute to see the wide sky above the Jerusalem Hills/the Mountains of Judea in all its sunset splendor.
.
Have a look at other bloggers' skies today over at SkyWatch Friday.
Did anyone see meteors?

Hmmmmmm... having just seen come spectacular cloud formations on a recent trip in Scotland, I sometimes wonder if clouds are 'messages in the sky'... cool pictures :)

Your Jerusalem sunset will have tobe the best of all.

I agree with Texas Travelers, a couple of degrees lower are welcomed.
The photos are lovely.

Lovely clouds Dina. Our weather is not as consistently hot as yours, but clouds are a welcome relief here, also, after a hot spell.

I love those great big pink gray clouds. Too bad they didn't cool things down a little more.

Pietro said...

Very beautiful Sky Watch, Dina!
Here it's hot, this year August is hotter than July, there is a lot of humidity that makes the heat really oppressive.

Hilda said...

I never really thought about clouds helping to lower temperatures, but you're right. Glad you got a little reprieve from the heat!

Kay said...

Very beautiful clouds. The colors are rich, the skies full of power.

RuneE said...

Oh, well, we might get a couple of hours without clouds later today...

I am sure you think the same way about clouds as I do, any cloud is a good cloud, of course the best are those drop a load of rain, but in the interim, the beauty alone is sufficient.

Beautiful skies, indeed!
