Sky Watch #87: Grecian Blue

22 Apr

Athens graciously welcomed us with the warmth of their sun and  treated us to  delicous Grecian blue sky.   I am hoping that someday I would be given the chance for a return visit – hopefully much longer than a day excursion.[November 2009]

Sky Watch is a weekly gathering of sky watchers and sky lovers. 

BTW, Happy Earth Day everyone!

    What wonderful skies you had in Greece. Beautiful shots. I’ve been following your beautiful shots from there on your other blog too but I forget to pop to that one and comment since I read it in my feed reader.

    Happy Earth Day!
