Skywatch Friday


This is my first "Skywatch Friday" post. I thought you might like two shots from my side door, over the roof tops and electrical and phone lines of the Empire State Building in New York City against an incredibly colorful sky.

What a beautiful, dramatic, golden sky! I love these pictures, Mary. Last time I was down that way, the sky was the color and texture of potato soup! Thanks for setting the record straight.

I loved NYC. My 18 year old daughter and I visited there the year after she graduated from HS, one of those mommy and me trips.

We had a fabulous time.

Your backdrop picture is simply breath-taking. I wish I could take a photo like that, but since mine don't turn out quite that well, I enjoy great shots all the more.

Welcome to the club!

Crop the picture with the Tower in the centre and include the pole etc, and you'll have an even better picture.
