Sky Watch Friday: Yellowstone

Here is another sky pic that I shot while on vacation in Yellowstone. I thought that these two trees sitting alone on the hillside were interesting. Then the picture got even better when white, wispy clouds came over the hill contrasting with the bright blue mid morning sky.

Great photo for sky watch friday, such a sparse and rugged landscape there which makes it an interesting place to share.

If I ever get back to Yellowstone, I'd better have an extra camera & lots of spare batts - because I'll be a picture taking fool! LoL! Lovely photo

Hi! Great photo. I wonder how long the trees have "known each other?" It almost looks like they're not speaking any more ;)

Your trees aptly illustrate Yellowstone's harsh climate. Hope you had a wonderful time visiting that fabulous place.

First, I saw yellow sand on a yellow beach in Sarawak, Malaysia.

Now, it's a yellowstone!

And what more? A nice pleasant day to be seen in your clear pristine cloudy sky.

Makes it very interesting to this Friday's skywatching.

Great adventure!
