SkyWatch Friday

Thank you Dot for originally creating SkyWatch and thank you Klaus, Sandy, Ivar, Wren, Fishing Guy and Louise who now run the SkyWatch Team. If you would like to join in and post your own photos, or just want to look at sky pictures from all over the world, you can visit by clicking on the icon above.
These were taken in and around the Washington DC area. Above is part of the Washington Cathedral.

This hard thinking rabbit can be found in one of the sculpture gardens along the mall.

Not sure what the above building is but it is not too far from the museums.


I think many will recognize the Washington Monument.

Gosh! I've never seen that rabbit in the times that I've been to D.C. You're making me want to go back just to find it. Terrific sky watch photos, Denise.

What a lovely series!

Denise said...

Barbara, thank you.

Kay, I can't remember which garden he was in but he was across the Mall from the Air and Space Museum.

Pat and Abe, glad you visited DC. I love going there when I have the opportunity. It's only about 45 minutes from our home.

GuyD, I think you would have a great time here. So much to see. By the same token I would love to visit your part of the world one day.

John, thank you too.

Great building. But the rabbit shot really shocked me. Just didn't expect it.

Denise said...

Quiet Paths, thank you and I am honored that my photos make you feel that way.

Larry D, thank you too, that rabbit is a wonderful sculpture.

JoAnn's-D-Eyes, thank you, I have enjoyed my visit to your blog.

Beautiful, yes that's the effect that rabbit had on me at first. Didn't expect to see him but he has now become a welcome sight on my walks along the Mall. The more I see him the more I appreciate him.

Mojo said...

That's the same problem I have with my DC photos. I can never remember what building was what! But you caught the light just right on that frieze whatever building it was on. (Actually it looks very familiar... I may have a shot of the same place.)

mommanator said...

I love those sculture gardens! I could satnd and look at them ALL day!

Dot O said...

Love your pics! I've been mentioning for a couple of years that we need to drive down to DC and spend a few hours touring the sites with the kids - hasn't happened yet but your photos have made me want to head down there!

Dewdrop said...

Awesome collection of shots! I love the castle!

Mary said...

You know...it's the rabbit I like the best :-) It made me smile. Great photos of all.

Dee said...

Lovely photos! I have fond memories of Washington DC.

Diane C. said...

Gorgeous skies for fascinating art and architecture subjects. Thank you for posting these, I've never been to Washington DC.

George said...

I'm not sure what the columned building is, but the gold cast you've captured makes the picture a real work of art.

Lew said...

A great place for taking photos! And you get your daily exercise getting from place to place. I like the rabbit.
