Skywatch Friday

Every June and September, my amateur radio club goes up Mt Greylock, in the northwest corner of Massachusetts, in order to participate in a radio contest. We set up our towers among the trees at the summit, hoist antennas and talk to as many other hams as we can.

The mountain is a beautiful place, and I'm very grateful to be a part of this effort, not only for the radio experience, but for the exposure to natural beauty (which often expresses itself in liquid form!)

This is the view from Bascom Lodge, at the summit, looking roughly south. The skies are a mélange of air and water, flowing over the ridges like an ocean. It's magical to see in person.

A group of photobloggers post a photo of their skies each Friday - it's called Skywatch Friday. Click the link to see photos from round the world.
