Looking at the Sky - Marconi
Tish is on to something with her meme Looking at the Sky. You can see lots of moods in the skies that aren't necessarily blue. This example was from the Cape Cod National Seashore, and at the Marconi Beach - this is the place Marconi sent his first wireless communication to Europe in 1903. These forty foot high dunes are so rough hewn and natural with their grasses and ground shrubbery - a non cultivated beauty. But what of the sky? It is in August 2001 and the oceanic clouds have covered the sandbar known as the Cape. The sky has deposited a briny fog of sorts over the land, and this is the case where it is 15°F cooler here than the 45 air miles north to Boston, where no doubt it is sunny and warm. Bur for the sun to be hiding, the sky and terrain form a view that is probably closer to the shores of Eire and Scotland (and I would love to visit both someday!). A unique view of the combination of turf and sky. See many more sky captures at Tish's site!
