SkyWatch Friday

Posted by Lorac Thursday, 12 November 2009

SkyWatch Friday

The skies here have been rather uneventful these last couple of weeks. Not that it hasn't been sunny the last week, it has! Just haven't been any where so nothing to see. I went into the archives and pulled out this pic from when I was in Holland visiting a friend. I had arrived that morning, was jet lagged and decided I needed a walk to clear my head. I couldn't believe my luck when I saw this!

The building where all the windows are reflecting the gorgeous blue of the sky which is once again reflected in the canal water! To top it all off, amidst it all is a quaint little  green skiff!

This pastel pink sky reflected in the lake looks warm and the baby blue bottom of the sky blankets the land.

Go to SkyWatch Friday for all the marvelous skies of the world. Enjoy the great hosts and  posts!


  1. I love the reflections in the first photo, the second one is so different from the first isn't it?
