SkyWatch Friday Blue




I took these a few weeks ago and chose them for this weeks SkyWatch because I love the blue hues in the sky and water, the way the clouds all lined up for what seemed infinity and the play of light on the water on one and the sun in the other.

If you're fortunate enough to live or travel in the countryside you realize just how big the sky is and the funny thing I find being on a lake is that when you're on the water it's as if you're in a bowl. The sky is large but round!

Be sure and check out the sky from the vantage point of others around the world by clicking on the emblem below! Happy SkyWatch Friday!!

I agree with you this is a spectacular view. The sun the sky and the water make it all work. Just looking at it makes me feel calm and relaxed. Awesome shot! Mine is about HongKong skies, I hope you visit mine :)
