Sky Watch Friday


There's not much of it but what there is is such a startlingly bright blue I had to share it. This is the winter sky above Valbonne on Christmas Eve, clear, cold and blue. We've had such awful weather recently that I must admit to feeling entitled to this.

To see Sky Watch photos from around the world visit the Sky Watch site.

The blueness of the sky is very beautiful...the right description of a perfect day. Happy new year!

The blue sky together with the color of the houses is beautiful.

Happy new year.

The gorgeous cobalt blue of the sky against the yellowish houses remind me of Van Gogh's paintings. Very lovely Sky Watch capture. Have a terrific New Year!

I'm so glad you were blessed with beautiful weather on Christmas eve then. That blue is gorgeous!

And I'm intrigued by those shutters. Are they windows or do they all have little balconies behind them like that one on top?

You're right -- the blue of the sky is amazing. I can't remember the last time I saw such a brilliant blue sky.

we'ev not had much blue either. Thanks for reminding us what it can look like. Like the color of the houses against the sky too.

Love the composition and all those glorious colours. Apparently it's going to be good on Sunday - photography day for us both, perhaps? Having said that, it'll probably rain. Thanks for your comments on the new dogs, Angela. They are coming along a treat.

There is so much to ponder in this simple image of the buildings and bare trees and the blue sky.
