July 4th Skies

For Skywatch Friday, here's a shot taken on July 4th at the club where we relaxed with an appetizer and a drink. A typically perfect Colorado afternoon to sit outside!
And no, I wasn't laying on the ground for last week's Skywatch shot, but I did use my ultrawide fisheye lens.

Our first full morning in Japan was spent at Miyajima, or Shrine Island, near Hiroshima. Here's a view from the ferry as we approached.
It wasn't great weather but we didn't let that stop us from exploring.
It was truly beautiful, and if you look carefully in the above photo you can see one of Japan's most famous sights (there are more photos to come). Next week we'll see more photos of the shrine and a pagoda.

Japanese Trees

Here's a Skywatch Friday post, from Itsukushima, more commonly known as Miyajima, an island near Hiroshima. We don't get this kind of foliage where I live!

Our big vacation this year was to Japan and South Korea, and I'll be posting lots of photos over the next few months. We arrived in South Korea and flew to Japan the next day. After arriving in Tokyo we took the famous bullet trains to Hiroshima, and here are some photos from that first day's ride through the lovely countryside.
We stopped in several cities but only left the trains to get on another one.
They stopped in cities along the way.
Despite the rain the countryside was beautiful, as it went past at nearly 200 mph (320 kph).

San Fran Skywatch

Here's a final San Francisco Skywatch Friday shot, looking straight up with my fisheye lens. For next week I've got one lined up from the other side of the Pacific, where we recently vacationed.
