Skywatch Friday

Took this of the Mediterranean from one
of the hiking trails in the Cinque Terre,
in Italy. The not-too-tough trail got
treacherous when the skies finally
opened up—those rocks are definitely
slippery when wet!


  1. I always found this interesting:
    a deep blue sky, bright, without clouds, that's nice because it means nice weather most of the time but,in fact, that's ...just blue sky !
    But a "tortured" sky, with clouds, smoke, pollution, sometimes WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!
    Just like yours, Alexa ! Bravo !!

  2. As Marylène says, Bravo, Alexa! This is breathtaking. I can almost imagine the finger of God pointing down through the clouds ...

    And when we go to Italy again someday, I'll be putting Cinque Terre on 'the list'. It will give us a great excuse to eat more pasta.

  3. This photo is nothing short of brilliant! Wow.

    Have a nice weekend

  5. this is so pretty! I love the rich colors you have captured.

  6. Fantastic shot! You sure are brave to walk on those wet boulders.

  7. Thanks, all!
    Marylene -- a "tortured" sky is the perfect description. Truly, you speak English like a champ!
    Shell -- yes, this is what I always refer to as a "hand of God" sky.
    L and V -- not brave. Had no choice. (Unless I wanted to spend the night on the cliffs!)
