Sky Watch Friday Season #4 - Episode #8

Sky Watch Friday this is the place. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were a lot of people with beautiful Sky photos last week. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post. You can link a 2:30 PM EDT.

This is a small park in Kent Ohio with a lake and soccer fields. The pond had a great reflecting surface for the floating clouds.
I had to swing around to give you two different directional views. I love the floating clouds in the lake.
Have fun seeing some great skies.

Hello Tom. I was just about to browse through your site to look for the picture I choose for my prize by there you have put it up for me!!

WOW!! That second picture of the reflection is simply stunning!! Please could I have that one.

Thank you for the wonderful and rare opportunity to be able to choose a photograph.

Sorry I have not had time to do this before now, but the period over the end of the month is just too busy to do much else except work. :(
