28 Jan

“No rain in the forecast………until tomorrow.” That’s what I heard on the radio today as I drive to work.  I don’t need to hear that no rain is expected today, because for the first time in a week or so we are bathed in glorious sunshine and up there is nothing but blue skies and for decorations some wispy white clouds. 

The picture above shows  a summer blue sky.  This is a church that I always pass by on the way to Sebastopol, this area’s main apple growing region – gravenstein apple. 

Skywatch is a weekly gathering of sky watchers and sky lovers. Join us.

    Lovely colors in your photo – the deep rich red of the church’s dome really sets a tone. It is a vivid blue sky, too.

    I lived in Sonoma County for many years and just reading the name Sebastopol makes me nostalgic. So glad you are finally having some clear skies. I heard it was almost like Seattle lately there for you, just all gray all the time. Anyway, love the cheery photo, and your very enjoyable blog.

    I know all to well what you mean about blue skies!! When we had a couple last week, I commented to some people that there was a strange light in the sky, and I thought it might be called “the sun”, and how I had read about it! It really was even better than the fog!

    Gorgeous blue skies! The church against that blue almost glows. Nice capture.

    Its like this church was designed to be draped by the blue skies.

    Hope you have a grand weekend whether there is rain or shine.

    What a perfect blue sky. And I like the church as well. We don´t have this kind of architecture here, so it seems like from a fairytale to me:-)

    I love the church architecture, and the beautiful blue sky. Really like how the blue sky is even visible through the bell tower.
