Skywatching from the ship.. Skywatch Friday

I was watched the skies a lot while we were on our cruise in July. Nine nights on a cruise ship we did see a lot of sunsets over the water.






On this photo I zoomed in a little closer. My header photo is even closer.

  1. Ships are a great place to see the sky, lots of stars at night (exept Alaska in summer) and great sunsets if you have a few clouds, as you did. Nice shots.
