SWF.....Baltimore Harborplace

These are my skywatch shots from March 3rd. I took my camera to work with me and was happy to see some pretty skies. I am also trying to get in some exercise by taking brisk walks down to the harbor. So I feel good by walking and taking some pictures along the way.

                                 I saw some pretty pinks along the walk to work.


The early morning pinks and blues are some of my favorites.


 

Hard to believe just a short distance away the sky turned more orangy.


The next couple are from my quick walk down to the harbor. I loved these contrails.
 

The sun was rising between these two buildings and by trying to take this shot I scared these ducks away before I could get a good look at them.




On the picture below, I believe it is a test area where grasses are growing to help keep the harbor water clean. I hope the test area works.

Thanks to the hosting group of Sylvia, Wren, Sandy, Klaus and Fishing Guy! They make Skywatch Friday happen every week.


Thanks also for stopping by to see my skywatch. Have a wonderful weekend.!

They are all very lovely, Eileen! But I like the pink/blue ones too. :)

Terrebel said...

Well done! I really like the contrast of man made objects (counting contrails) and nature, like the ducks and the sky.

Have a good weekend!

It has been dreary here lately...I could use a lovely sunset! It is nice that you have a harbor to walk to...very cool.

Such a lovely variety of colors and lighting - you got a lot from a small geographic area!

Awesome photo series. The orange sky is fantastic, and those contrails are great too. Thanks for sharing.

Relly like your header, looks like some one is beaming a message from the centre of the building.

LV said...

That is why we have to always be ready with our camera, as nature changes her mind rather fast. You are doing two very good things. Walking and capturing pretty sights.
