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.

  5. 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!

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
Have a great day, Eileen
