Skywatch Friday: Blue Skies, Icy Trees

The view from our front yard, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. January 31, 2010.

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.

There was a brightness in the sky behind the clouds and haze that’s been there all month.  After doing some research I believe that brightness is something called the ‘sun’.  I didn’t have my camera with me to get a picture, but I’ll continue to do research on this phenomenon.

I had to go back to the last day of January to get a decent picture for sky watch.  This picture was taken after our big snow and ice storm.  For one day we had gorgeous blue skies, which made a great background for all the icy branches on the trees.

    It is a beautiful scene. Let’s hope the blue sky is accompanied by a warm sun instead of ice. MB

    That sure is a beautiful bright blue sky. Perfect background for the beautiful icy tree.

    Love that vibrant blue. We have that going on right now too! It’s nice to see after seeing nothing but gray all morning.

  15. Fishing Guy Says:

    George: What a neat photo.

  16. Rose Says:

    We had the hoarfrost, but not the bright blue skies to show it off to full advantage. I bet it was a real winter wonderland with that sky.
