SkyWatch Friday #54

My last Colorado SkyWatch shot, from somewhere along the drive through the winding canyons of the Colorado Rockies.

Colorado SkyWatch

One of the many things that impressed me so much about the beautiful imagery in Colorado was the deep rich blues of the sky. You just don't see that kind of color in the low-altitude, smog-saturated skies of Houston.


For more intriguing images of the skies above our world, check out the SkyWatch Friday home page.

I like the way the cloud seems to be reaching down to the tree. They definitely have an interdependence whether they know it or not.
