Oh, I'm so pleased to have just discovered you! I'm a Brit (from Hampshire)now living in NY with the dog, the cat and the family in tow! We were in D.C for the holidays and loved it there- it really struck us how different it is to NYC (which we love too, but for different reasons)and how much it reminded us of England!

I'll be posting some D.C pics in the next few days but meanwhile wanted to say I really enjoyed yours! Will see you on SkyWatch Friday, too.

I look forward to reading more.
Bella :)

I like the bird in the sky, which appears when you enlarge it. Nice detail.

rsobczak said...

Those clouds look whispy ... and cold. That was affirmed by looking at the landscape below in the second.

Refreshing to see a blue sky with feathered clouds. It's been so long,

I don't really know what the difference is but we went through South Dakota on the way to Montana and came back home from Montana thru North Dakota. It seemed like it took longer to get through North Dakota than it did to get through South Dakota. And there is almost no towns or houses in North Dakota compared to South Dakota. The places we visited were really neat though.

Thanks for your visit.

Wren said...

It's been a while since I've seen that view - even when in the DC area, I didn't get to the cemetery that often.

Thanks for skywatching with us.
