Sky Watch #10


IMG_0050, originally uploaded by airam94564.

This is St. Mary's in the Mountains Catholic Church, the first Catholic church in Nevada, built in 1876 and holds services and is open to the public. Photography is allowed inside the church.

Taken before the rain came down hard for a few minutes.

  3. Would be just a normal photo. The skies however make it special, maybe they are promising the downpour?

  31. Thank you for stopping by.
    It is great to see via SWF beautiful buildings from all over the world which I would have no chance to see or now about; in your case an extraordinary church; and other interesting photography. Marvel about sunsets, sunrises, clouds in all formations, brilliant blue skies there is no end to it. It's great isn'it?
