Winter Morning Skywatching

Sometimes it's nice to take a moment on a busy morning to go for a walk and check out the sky...






Enjoy more skies from around the world or share yours at Skywatch Friday. Special thanks to Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and Sylvia for hosting this wonderful photo meme.
