Black Forest Skies

Nothing spectacular for Skywatch Friday this week, just some pleasant skies from the nearby Black Forest Regional Park where Socks and I went for a hike last weekend. As you can see, most of the snow is gone.
There were some clouds off in the distance, but it was a beautiful day.
And remember, never look into the Sun. Otherwise you might get a strange spot in your photo, and other bad things!
I'll never tire of all the incredible blue skies we get here in Colorado - I've never lived anywhere else like this. For lots of lovely skies, visit the Skywatch Friday meme.

  4. Hiya Al,

    Never mind the photo: Beware of getting it in your EYE.
    Very important warning indeed. I've been thinking about it a lot lately, as it is so easy to get carried away.

    Hiding behind a tree helps :-)
    Is that what you did for that third image?

    Thank your for sharing that blue sky with us all.

  9. I love the flare in the last one!
    The strange 'spot' is probably if you are using a UV filter on your lens. I know I do when taking moon photos.

    Yes...looking into the sun can also damage your cameras sensors too...scary.

  19. So true about the blue skies. It's so calming to look up when there's no cloud in sight. Unfortunately, I don't have a photo ready for that.
