SkyWatch Friday

I missed SkyWatch last Friday. So I am including several images from a quiet little walk I took around Silver Lake, in Big Cottonwood Canyon earlier this week. It was a beautiful, cool morning. Only a few people out and about. The aspens were golden, the sky was blue. And the air. What can I say about the smell and feel of the air? It just makes you want to breathe deeply.

These are just gorgeous. I love SWF! The second and last are my faves. Thanks so much for a trip into such beauty. And I've posted some peach-colored clouds too, so stop by if you have time.

Your series of pictures are beautiful - the color contrast is so breath-taking. I especially like the texture of the clouds in the 2nd shot, and the reflection in the water of the 3rd. Very nicely captured. Thanks so much for stopping by and seeing my Elk this week. Happy SWF.
