Looking at the Sky - Swampy Sky


Looking at the Sky often evokes nice memories.

Soft December skies lie above a marsh in Martin County Florida. Scanned from a print taken decades ago, I was in Florida for warmth, and the winter days were ideal for a snowbird. The days started out at a crisp (for the Sunshine State anyway) 55ยบ and I was to wear a light cotton sweater in the AM, and not in the PM. Thus from New England, that was an ideal Winter day.

Nothing extraordinary, but that is the appeal here. The sky was just blue enough to add a wonderful tint to the water. See the sky in many beautiful iterations at Tisha's great meme!

That is a beautiful swamp shot! I know we should be focused on the sky, but I am amazed how blue the swamp water is!

Looks like those water lilies are getting ready to bloom! Nice sky tops it off!

It always fascinates me that the reflection in the water is often darker than the sky. Interesting, don't you think?
