SkyWatch Friday : I can see clearly now!

For SkyWatch Friday I am sharing this lake view, once again--only this time the water was like glass with every single leaf, needle, creature and piece of blue sky nicely reflected. Rounding the water's edge, I scared this white egret away from his fishing hole. He lumbered off quietly while I was amazed at the wingspan on such a narrow, long legged bird. The photo below was taken on the opposite side of the lake. Was it him? 'Well, you know how it is, they all look alike to me!' she answered, tongue in cheek.

Take a look at SkyWatch Friday for literally hundreds of amazing photos from all over the globe.

Happy 4rd Friday in August!

Beautiful shots. You have to repeat the lake view a lot as it is a beautiful natural landscape. Each one it will be another view.

You have a great touch with the camera -- the egret shots and the door photos are all great fun to look at. Lots to see!

Beautiful pictures! Like Monet's water lilies, the lake is a subject that bears much study and frequent repetition. I'm always happy to see it again.
