Skywatch Friday

(Click the picture to enlarge it)

Walking the streets of my hometown of Amsterdam I witnessed this very strange phenomena in the sky. Anyone got a clue?















From a small bridge not far from my place I saw a different side of "the piramids" that are actually shaped after the christmas-tree in the architect's office. There's also a bird. Can you spot it?















Standing on that same bridge you can see this genuine old windmill. Unfortunately "the piramids" block the wind from it so it can't work anymore.





















Walking from my house towards the bridge connecting two parts of the city:
















"The Piramids" up a little closer:

Great photos, I love the first photo, are they trails from an airplane. Or could they just be clouds?

I would say the pink trails in the first shot are contrails, we get those here frequently -- not always in this lovely shade of pink, but in various shapes, lengths and they are all fascinating to watch! All of your shots are delightful and I really enjoy visiting your blog, Terrence!

Enjoy your weekend!

Leuke rondleiding. Jouw molen is mooier dan de mijne!
Geen idee wat die strepen in de lucht zijn.

Goeie morgen. Leuk dat je op visite kwam. Ik heb ook een poosje geleden een foto geplaatst met zulke roze strepen, ook geen idee waar ze vandaan kwamen, het was alleen bij mij bij zonsondergang, Misschien condensstrepen met de zon erop? Mooi die piramidewoningen. Mooie foto's

Terrence: I found the bird and did you see the boy drawn on the building was pointing at it. Those were a beautiful series of captures.
BTW: The attack fish are not harmful.

Mooie beelden uit een mooie stad. Die pyramides had ik nimmer gezien maar de vogel is gespot ... luchtfenomeen denk ik aan vliegverkeer, Schiphol ??
Fijn weekend, kijk naar de sky, maar let op het verkeer en de ... verkeersborden als je hemelwaarts kijkt !!

Nice photos. I especially like the first one although all are interesting. I did find the bird. Reminded me of Poe's "Raven."

These are great photos...your phone does a great job. The sky in the first photo is amazing and those clouds are so interesting. We never see those where I live! Very cool photo!
