SkyWatch Friday

In the last couple of posts I introduced you to Lake Anne Village Center in Reston. These are a few sky photos Gregg and I took while there.

This is a condominium complex, a building that I showed in the other post.


A reflection of the sky in the lake.

A doughnut hole in the sky, Gregg's photo and title.

One of mine....
and another of the lake.

Lots of clouds but with the sun trying to break through, which makes for a very beautiful sky, one that is hard to capture in a simple photograph.


My thanks go to the SkyWatch Friday team who bring this wonderful meme to us each week. If you want to join in you can click here.

  2. Hi Denise,
    I was just through Reston last week. My son drove me around for a little tour. So many lovely buildings to see there.
    I love the reflection shots! Gregg's doughnut title is perfect.
    You two make a good photography team. :)

  7. I especially like the angle you shot of the building in the first photo. Now if I were only Superwoman and could leap tall buildings with a single bound....

  17. Looking up at those high condos, something invites me to daydream about hanging outside of one of those apartments, smoking a pipe with cherry tobacco (even though I don't smoke) and listening to jazz on headphones. It's a whole other world, and I'm happy where I'm at, but I'd love to sample some of that.

    Then I look at Greg's doughnut hole and it reminds me of a smoke ring... and suddenly, I'm back where I started.

  25. Hi Denise,

    I agree with Ebie, the photo of the sky with a hole looks very mysterious.

    Thanks for the visit. Hope to see you in the Farmer's Market.
    Take care.
