Skywatch Friday

I started a new blog about my travels and for photos of scenery and the wildlife I see. I love to travel and I really love seeing wildlife of any kind.

I am starting this post with a Skywatch Friday entry, it is from the Alaska cruise I took with my family.

For more great Skywatch photos from around the world please click on my link. Thanks for viewing my photos and have a great weekend.




During our cruise to Alaska and the inside passage we had  longer daylight and shorter nights. So the skies would were looking great.










And special thanks to Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Ivar, Fishing Guy and Louise for hosting Skywatch Friday.

  31. These are gorgeous! I love the water and the wake of the boat in the first one - the sun's rays so perfectly highlighting a part of it. It's fun to see what you've chosen as a blog topic, as I keep thinking about whether to break out certain types of photos into a new blog or dump them all into one or two :) Good luck with your new endeavor!
