Skywatch Friday

This was taken a few weeks ago atop Mt Greylock, MA.  I was up there for the September VHF radio contest.  I'm usually very busy up there, but I try to make time to walk around and see the sights.  Greylock is such a beautiful place!  On this day, the fog and clouds were just gorgeous- I had to go back for the camera.  I passed two people doing tai chi exercises and thought the morning sun and the quiet clouds below were a perfect accompaniment.

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.

  3. The City Daily Photo Blog Theme Day for October is nearly upon us. Have you, as yet, given some thought to your interpretation of our theme, ‘Silhouette’? There are a number of meanings to this word, and there is no need to feel restricted to the meaning in the English language. If you are a member of Face Book, you are welcome to post your contribution to the CDPB group page at If you are not a member of Face Book, you may care to post at
    As you post your October Theme contribution, please vote for your choice of the five suggested themes for November (My Street, Fresh Fruit and Vegetables, The Water’s Edge, Ageing (dis)gracefully, or The Thrill of the Dance). You may vote at either location, but please only vote once! The results will be conflated at the close of voting on Monday 8th November.

  4. Gorgeous shot! It does look like you had some beautiful skies there that morning!

  5. Magnifica foto.
    Buona domenica :)

  6. By coincidence I've just been re-reading 'A Walk in the Woods' by Bill Bryson, in which he climbs this mountain. Great to see it 'in the flesh'.


The spammers have struck. Due to this I will be moderating all comments. Sorry for the hassle, but it's the only choice because I refuse to turn on word verification.
