Skywatch Friday – Tulsa Skies


On a bike ride a week or so ago I stopped and took a photo across the Arkansas River to this power plant. Yep, I used a filter.


From the same spot I turned about 30 degrees to my right and captured this scene of the new pedestrian bridge and low water dam going on. They are really busy, busy, busy with all the work going on. Who knows when it is going to be done.

A few days later I took my bike back to the river to do another dam inspection trip and the skies opened up. Fortunately, I hadn’t started my ride yet.

A few days later I was walking in a park and captured this scene.


I took a hike on Turkey Mountain and captured a scene at Pepsi Lake.

The trail I was on came out on a powerline right of way and hey, there is the office building I worked in for about half my career way on downtown. I waved, “Hey guys, get your butts back to work.”

That’s about it for this week. I’m linking with Skywatch Friday. Come join in the fun!!

    I like the filter on your first photo. The rain video is wonderfully refreshing. I can sit here and watch it over and over as I swelter in the heat!

    I’d say its a good thing you hadn’t started your ride yet on that rainy downpour day. But all the rest of the blue sky days were beautiful so who could ask for more! There’s a power plant across the river from the mouth of the canal we live on in Florida — I should try a filter to see if I can make it look as pretty as yours does . We’ve always thought of it as the thing that makes our Florida house affordable. (Because otherwise there would be McMansions in our neighborhood instead of ours!)

    The filter seems to really make a difference. I love the view of where you used to work. My favorite thing is to watch the news and hear of high winds or heavy rains and I think ” I don’t have to drive anywhere any more”

    I love the view of the park and trail. We could use some rain here, it is always missing us.
    I will be happy when the weather is not so humid. Happy weekend! Take care, have a happy day!

    Ah using the filter changed the plain scene into a mighty interesting one. Betcha you glad that you worked there all those many years so you can retire and not have schedules that someone else makes for you. Thanks for hosting.

    There’s a decommissioned power plant visible from my back yard when leaves are off the trees. I’ve never thought of taking a picture of it, but why not? Nice variety of views, man made and natural. I could tell how happy you are to be retired!

    We need power plants and office buildings in life, but the trees and ponds and rain views are so much prettier to see. Continue to enjoy your retirement!
