SkyWatch Friday

This is my first attempt at a SkyWatch Friday photo. I follow some blogs that participate, two of my favorites being Ivar Ivrig’s blog and The Rocky Mountain Retreat Photography, but it was my friend over at Bluff Area Daily that urged me to participate. I took this photo while riding lift 10 on Sunday while we were skiing. We could see the moon all day. Can you see it? It is right above the pine tree.

Please visit
SkyWatch Friday for more beautiful photos.

Great picture for SkyWatch Friday and welcome. I'm up to about 7 posts with two big benefits: 1) I think about the sky more often and 2) I get to see tons of great posts from all over the world of people doing the same thing... like YOU. I love Ivar too, that guy lives in a wonderland. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Welcome to Skywatch! We had a slice of the moon in our blue sky yesterday, too. I almost took its picture but didn't, so I'm glad you shared yours.

Yes, I saw the moon before I read your post. I think it really adds something to the photo. I like the large birch tree, and the smaller evergreen, with the moon on top!!
Thanks for sharing!
