Sky Watch #52


DSCF3792, originally uploaded by M'roy.

My husband snapped this on the second night of our camping trip to Lake Shasta, which I blogged here. The reason why I wasn't doing the shooting? I was busy with my gals chitchatting and downing some adult beverage :)

Sky Watch is a weekly gathering of skywatchers and sky lovers. Please join us.

  1. This is awesome... to me, it symbolizes relationship with our loving God, as opposed to the whole ball of fire punishment argument... eek.

    Thanks for the beautiful compliment.

    I simply love the crepusculars your hubby captured.
