SkyWatch Friday: Sky and Water

Looking out to sea from Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. December 22, 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.

When Betsy and I were at the beach in December, we had one very cloudy, dreary day.  I went for a walk along the beach and noticed the difference in the sky over head and a little off shore.  Over the beach the clouds were dark and gray, but out a little way they were a golden orange.

But light does interesting things.  If you look closely at the water on the beach itself you will see the golden orange of the sky reflected in the ripples at the beach.

    Dreary is as dreary does.
