Chesapeake skywatch

I took these shots last Friday early in the morning on my way to the Blackwater NWR. The sun was already up and I think the clouds and light were pretty.


                                      My sunrise reflection.



To see more wonderful skies from all over the world go and visit Skywatch Friday

and thanks to the hosting team of skywatch Friday.

also I think my first shot looks great for Weekend reflections the sun is reflecting nicely on the icy pond.
to see more weekend reflections go and visit James at newtowndailyphoto. Thanks James for hosting this fun meme,

And thanks for stopping by my blog to see my skies.

I did see the same sky. What a wonderful thing for us from two different places.

Two beautiful sunrise pictures. I especially like the first picture. The clouds are quite distinctive, and I like the reflection on the water.

jabblog said...

Beautiful shots, particularly the first one. It looks dramatic and mysterious and the clouds are splendid.

Carver said...

Both of these shots are so beautiful. I love the puffy cotton ball clouds, the reflection and also the sun.

Beautiful skies and scenery!

Shellbelle said...

First I have to say one thing, you need to remove that part in your profile that says you have to admit you're not the best photographer! That simply is not true, these shots are amazing and it takes someone with a good eye to capture the scene so well. Bravo!

These sky images are fantastic! Clouds make the sky so interesting and I selfishly think sometimes that they are intended for those who have the heart to see.
