Sky Watch Season # 4 Episode # 39

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 at 3:00 PM EDT on Thursdays. SWF is run by Klaus, Wren, Sandy, Sylvia and myself.

I thought I would show some more shots as we leave the Venice Grand Canal headed for Lido, Italy. Here is a ferry that we rode in to Lido.
We ended with a golden sunset. It made the photography so easy.
You can see the city of Venice skyline at the bottom of the screen.

You can see a lot of great sky photos above.

EG Wow said...

You saw some great skies when you were away!

Johnny Nutcase said...

that is a pretty sunset, looks like fun! I love ferry rides.

Tom said...

Beautiful views for sure Thomas...
I have looked forward to seeing more pictures from your trip.. and I knew Sky Watch would have been catered for while you was away..
Great Sky Watch

I have sat in front of the TV.. and PC monitor watching the opening round of the 'Masters' unfold. Apart from the golf the course is always stunning and the Skies above Augusta would be an ideal subject for Sky Watch.

As for the golf.. Who would have bet on Couples, Watson and Lyle being at the top of the leader board, with Westwood, Mickelson and Poulter in the hunt. What a performance from Woods, the best start he's had at the Master.. looking forward to round two. ;o)

Great Golf..

Gaelyn said...
