Hope everybody is having a great Sky Watch Friday !

I had to go back two or three weeks to find a sky shot that I hadn't already used, so I hope this shot fits the bill...   I'm not quite satisfied with the shot, so I guess I need to get back out there and do a re-shoot...

I'm off on a short holiday today so it may take me a day or two to visit everybody's blogs...

Beautiful, Donald! You and "Louis" are 'singing off the same sheet of music' today - "Louis" also shows a sun almost obscured by the fog - enough so that the freeway below is almost dark.

Bobbie said...

That's the sun? When I first looked at the photo I thought it was a full moon! That's pretty heavy soup that it's shining through.

Tootie said...
