Sky Watch Friday


A view from the back of the Mayport Ferry, an auto ferry that crosses the St. Johns River from Mayport, Fl on the south bank to well... a ferry station on the north bank that is not near any true town - all of which is technically part of Jacksonville, Fl.

More on the Mayport Ferry in a few days - probably Sunday. Come back for more photos and a little more history! :)

Very nice capture from the ferry. The cloud formation seems to build to the steel work.

Great photo. I didn't know there was a ferry on the St. Johns. I enjoyed looking at all your Florida photos. I've lived here for 30 years, and it is always a joy to find someone who is enjoying the history and natural landscape of the state.

The sun peeks in on the photo like a cherry on top of a sundae. Very nice.

Happy Easter!

Willard said...

That is a different type of picture and I like it a lot!

I love how the clouds seem to be like the ferry's exhaust, trailing out behind the boat.
