Sky Watch #12


Sky Watch #12, originally uploaded by airam94564.

When I got my first digital camera, the first things I photographed were the blue skies. I was so fascinated with the cloudscapes and skyscapes that I kept clicking each time I was outdoors with my camera in hand.

So you can imagine how many images I have that would qualify for skywatch entry. That's why most of my skywatch entries are from my archives. Here's another one.

Taken in Skagway Alaska, June 2007. That's the dome of the Golden North Hotel. I previously posted the hotel here.

I particularly find cloud-covered mountain tops fascinating and mystical. I hope you enjoy skywatching as much as I do.

  1. I think fascinating and mystical atre excellent adjectives for that mountain top. Gorgeous would describe your shot as well.

    Don't feel bad. I do the same thing. Lots of stuff in the archive. :O)
