Clear Skies Over Kilmarnok-SkyWatch Friday Post


My husband and I spent November 5th, 6th and 7th in Kilmarnok, Virginia.We had taken a few days off to attend the Urbanna Oyster Festival. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and we had a most enjoyable time.  I will share more of my photographs in the upcoming weeks.

Be sure to check out others SkyWatch posts. We have a great group of participants from all over the world. And, I can't tell you how much I enjoy visiting their blogs and seeing what they've been up to.

The bare branches make this look like a stained glass piece with a saturated blue sky. Nice capture Erin. Have a great weekend.

Hi Erin, what lovely colors! The branches/twigs are so defined and delicate, with the blue skies!

P.S. I am glad you enjoyed my Griffith Observatory post. It was also beautiful watching the sunset. Tonight is the opening of the DWP Christmas lights on Crystal Spring Drive, we might go this weekend.

Wonderful composition. I love how you positioned the tree!

I really like the texture and shape of the clouds!

It's now 3 weeks that I haven't seen a blue sky here in Belgium ! I think I better look on my screen the whole day than out of the window !

The bare branches add lot of stories to the pic.
