Skywatch Friday



Photobucket

On this day the sky had an interesting look. Dark clouds were taking over the sky of blue. The cupola atop the Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, N.Y. caught my eye and I took this shot from the ground.

On another day I took this shot of the cupola from across the way on the same level as the cupola against a most lovely BLUE sky. It's quite decorative.

Hi Mary, you did it good this week. Your sky is so clear for these pictures, it may be the same one we are having. I took a similar shot at noon today but it didn't make my Skywatch.
Happy Skywatching! :-)

Beautiful structure against two complimentary skies!

Carver said...

I like both shots a lot. Usually cloudy skies are my favorite but I think in this case the cupola against the blue is my favorite but both great.

Geraldine said...

What great photos Mary! This is a beautiful building, judging by the peak. I love the color, amazing.

The center must be quite a building to warrant such a lovely cuppola! Great subject and skies, Mary!

Pretty Life Online said...

Perfect catch for sky watch! Clouds fill the skies above us and they are always part of our every day lives... Mine's up too hope you can drop dy!

Patti said...

Nice shot of that cupola against the gorgeous sky.

Hildegarde said...

I prefer the first one : very beautiful with the soft grey-blue-green combination.

CrazyCath said...

It contrasts well against either sky...
Great post.

Norm said...

beautiful cupola! I love the color of the skies very clear and gorgeous..

me ann my camera said...

The soft shades of both the sky and copula portray a sense of peaceful harmony.

Desert Songbird said...

Beautiful color; much brighter with the sunny skies.

oh very nice Mary and I like the differences w/the contrasts

Bradley Myers said...

Nice photos, I like it best with the blue sky.

Rebecca said...

Pretty!

Leora said...

Mary, you do have a good eye for architecture!

ChrisC and JonJ said...

I love the play of colors!

Kathiesbirds said...

That architecture set against that blue sky is so lovely. I love the soft green of the cupola. You've captured it well.

Abby said...

Such a beautiful color. It's rare for architecture to be so striking, but blue sky behind it as well almost makes it glow!

Julia Smith said...

I think I like it against the grey sky, best. Very beautiful cupola.

napaboaniya said...

That cupola looks pretty much like the Supreme Court House in Singapore.

Its the rainy season here too :)
Hope all is well with you Mary!! {Hugs}

storyteller said...

Isn’t it fascinating how the same sky can look so different from day to day! I played with PSE6 today to ‘alter’ the appearance of a single SKY photo 7 different ways at Sacred Ruminations this week … just because.
Hugs and blessings,

babooshka said...

That combination of clours is gorgeous.

lucy said...

I love the contrast of the colors against the sky. What amazing photos.

Larry D said...

Excellent photos!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

The cupola is a standout against both skies, ;-) Nice photos!

Louise said...

I don't think it would matter what kind of sky you had. That cupola would make any sky look fabulous! Great photo choices.

onangelwings said...

Ohhhhh I absolutely LOVE those colors. Stunning against that beautiful blue sky.

Queen-Size funny bone said...

oh I love the views, great shots.

forgetfulone said...

Those are great shots!

Carletta said...

Gorgeous Mary - I love the first one though! I really think the dark clouds with a touch of blue shining through adds to the pic.

Miss you!

2sweetnsaxy said...

I really like these. The love the way the color of the tower looks against the clouds and then the sky in the 2nd shot. Very nice!

Tommy V said...

nice skywatch Friday photos love the contrast

Gattina said...

The colors in the second picture please my painter's eyes !

Gattina said...

Bobbie in Hawaii said...

Had you not said where that was, I would have guessed Italy. Very nice, Mary.

imac said...

Beautiful contrast Teach, like the building it looks very old.

SandyCarlson said...

Laura ~Peach~ said...

Hootin' Anni said...

Beautiful...both of them. But I think I like the stormy sky better.

Happy weekend.

Mary said...

What a beautiful dome! The green and blue together are perfect!

Deslilas said...

Fine post and good luck for the next election.
Unfortunately I'm not allowed to give my vote and my candidate did not win the French Presidential Election last year.

Daryl said...

What a perfect sky to offset the utilitarian green of the dome ..

Carole said...

The green copula against the blue sky is just such a striking contrast. I like this very much.

Maddy said...

Cheers

Love all those details on those old NY buildings. Downtown Manhattan is a veritable feast that way.

Hope "back to school" hasn't been too traumatic for you! :D
