Sky Watch Friday

Pretty blue sky and cotton ball clouds for this weeks Sky Watch, hanging over a lake (really a giant retention pond to collect rain and runoff water from the nearby appartments and shops). These appartment/condo communities have overrun our city in the last 10 years - they're everywhere. At least these are colorful, providing somewhat of a contrast to they typical monotone, cookie-cutter buildings everywhere else. And the fountains in the lake are nice to look at while eating in one of the small restaurants that reside just behind where I stood to take the photos. But enough about the ground - this is Skywatch! So enjoy the lovely sky - mid-80s with a slight breeze; perfect Florida early summer. :)


A closer shot for a better view of the fountains.

Visit Tom for all of the Skywatch Friday fun.
