When the evergreens are black

I have resisted, so far, the urge to join the Skywatchers. Because I'm lazy. And it is always too difficult to choose; our skies are so beautiful, day after day.

And because they say Skywatch Friday. And I'm always late. Like now; it's Saturday night, almost Sunday morning. But, as my Momma done tol' me: better late than never.

So here are four sky shots. Laurie took these off the upstairs balcony after our first snowfall.

Dec. 21st, about 8:00 AM, looking East.

A few minutes later, looking South.

Next morning, same time. Looking West.

And looking East again.

And now, off to post my link!


  1. Glad you made the effort, they are all beautiful in their own ways. Nicely done.

  2. Ciao anch'io amo fotografare il cielo.-
    Ti aspetto nel mio blog. Hi !!

  3. I'm too inconsistent to join Skywatch myself! Though it seems a popular thing to do and gives one something to post about!! (I'm running out of subject matter).

    Welcome to Skywatch. Great photos for your debut post. And don't worry about posting every week, not everyone does. It's all very relaxed.

  8. Thanks, all.

    Wren, I'm glad you said that. I have a hard enough time, as it is, remembering that it is Friday for the Friday Ark.


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
