Skywatch Friday


We've been having a lot more weather this Winter than we're used to in this part of the world though I'm heartily glad that the blizzard that struck Marseilles, just a 2 hour drive away, passed us by.
Snow is all very well in its place like up in those hills but, please, not in my back yard!

If you'd like to see more great Sky watch images check out the Sky watch site.

What a beautiful photo! The scenery is breath-taking!
I did not know that you have blizzards over there :) (via Michelin says that it takes you 11 hours by car from Vienna to Nice 1.162 km).
Kind regards!
