Skywatch Friday: Sky Over Carolina Mountains


Evening sky in western North Carolina. July 10, 2009.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

I haven’t had an opportunity to get sky pictures this week, so I’ve gone to my archives for this picture.  It was taken in the mountains of western North Carolina this past July.  It had been an overcast day, but as evening approached the sun could occasionally be seen peeking through the clouds.  There are no obvious breaks in the clouds in this picture, but if you look closely you can see sun rays beaming down on the mountains.
