Sky Watch #38


IMG_0022, originally uploaded by M'roy.

California (in this part of the state at least) welcomed Spring with the most pleasant weather. Today our highs in the bay range from 60 to 67 with sun and blue skies, which makes me long for a day off today.

I went out walking to Pt. Pinole Regional Shoreline last Saturday, March 28th, and this shot is from that walk.

Well folks it's SKYWATCH time of the week again. Go and visit the site for more glorious photos.

  17. This is the second photo this week that I've said looks like the default desktop background for Windows XP. It almost looks like an artist's rendering as much as a photograph.

    Love your "Valley of Fire" Series too!

  18. Ah, simple yet effective! love the contrast of colors...we had 18° today!!! Its getting better :)

  23. I too love the simpleness. For me it has a Little House on the Prairie feel.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks for that 100% Natural picture. It's so rare. I take a big breathe.

    ReplyDelete
  25. That view is just so spring like; beautiful! The contrasting green and blue is refreshing. Here it seems to be still blue gray white, blue gray white...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Makes me want to run up that hill, then roll down again in the grass! Wonderful contrast of blue and green!

    ReplyDelete
  27. It could be the UK. The meeting of sky and land with those contrasting colours is just perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  28. How lovely! Makes me feel like jumping and playing here :-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. My MIL always said blue and green should never be seen together.
    In truth she ment in fabrics.
    I fail to see why as they are perfect together. Love the wispy cloud too.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hmmm, it's a beautiful day! We have rain and flooding but I feel better seeing your patch of sky. Happy SWF!

  36. Wow love the sight of the huge green field. When I was young, there was a small hill that looked like your photo and I would roll down the hill on the fields. Was so much fun but the hill had since shrunk due to increased in population and more houses need to be built. Have a nice weekend.

  37. Love the complimentary yet contrasting colours

    ReplyDelete
  38. Looking like a great place, somehow I'm reminded of the show "Sound of Music"!!

    p/s: You meant March 28th I assume? :P

    ReplyDelete
  39. Isn't that the perfect spring scene! Green green grass & a blue sky! Don't get me wrong, flowers come mind when I think of spring, but it's the green & blue that top it off!

    ReplyDelete
  40. A simple pic of rolling fields and sky, but so pleasing to the eye.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love scenes like this one. It screams "California"! And yes, it does remind me of my screen saver on my PC at work too, but yours is better! Soon I think our green hills will start turning brown...boo, hoo.

    By the way, I think you mentioned that you had seen a mountain lion when you were in Sunol. It's funny because when I went hiking there last week, I was alone and I specifically asked the ranger if any mountain lions had been sighted. He gleefully exclaimed that there haven't been any in years. Makes you wonder how accurate their information is!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Linnea---the sighting of mountain lion was a few years back, maybe 5 years ago on my first visit. No sighting on the second visit, which was last year.

  43. This is a gorgeous shot of greens & blue! It reminds me of a place in China during the height of spring time. :)

    Thank you for the visit!

  44. Hey, that looks like Microsoft's wallpaper! Great sky.
