blue skies over St. Paul

More blue skies from Minnesota!


I took this sky view this morning while walking in a St. Paul neighborhood near Como Park. The church's coat of many colors was beautifully enhanced by the vivid blue sky and vice versa.

See more spectacular and worldwide sky views at Sky Watch Friday hosted by The Team of
Klaus, Sandy, Ivar, Wren, Fishing Guy, & Louise . Happy Friday!

Beautiful!

I came over to see your ABC post after reading about a Zamboni on another post, which naturally made me think of you:) I've never heard of zeppole, but they certainly look delicious!

Oh, this is a lovely sky. I do love interesting skies like this, as the backdrop to some interesting building or other object of interest. I prefer these skies to the all-blue, for dramatic photography. Thank you for your lovely comment just now re my SWF post.
