SkyWatch Friday

My thanks to the Skywatch team for bringing this fun meme to us weekly. You can see other photos if you click on the icon above.

I reached into my archives for this week's contribution. We vacationed in the northwest several years ago and the photo above is looking up at the Space Needle in Seattle. The one below is on the ferry traveling from Canada back to the US.


These photos aren't the best quality as they are scans of old 'film' and the quality is better when not enlarged this time.

Those are gorgeous skies. Also good to see your purple day post. It's taking a long time for the comment box to load so I thought I'd comment here on both.

Oh, those clouds are gorgeous! And the sky and water have such deep color. Very nice!

I've never been to Seattle but would love to go up in the Needle!

You actually came to Canada and then....left? (only kidding! But it is nice here.)

I like the angle you took the Space Needle from. Cool.

Glad you dug into your archives to share these. I like that interesting view of the Space Needle and the pretty blues in the water, sky, and clouds in the Canada shot.

Babooshka said...

Very creative angle on the needle and the second one just struk me as being like one from my own beach sky collection.

Tricia said...
