Sky Watch #131: Summer Sky

17 Mar

The past two weeks I have posted sunsets and to break the monotony, I am posting something from the archive.

July 18, 2010 – deep into summer and it’s gloomy and foggy. You could almost believe the quote – the coldest winter i ever saw was a summer i spent in san francisco – supposedly by mark twain.

The white structure is the CONSERVATORY OF FLOWERS inside Golden Gate Park. Here is the website.

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

    I love the composition of this shot with the splash of color from the flowers. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    I love it, especially since I grew up in San Francisco and didn’t know there was any other kind of weather than fog until I was 11 years old.

    And Seattle isn’t that different!! Fantastic composition and capture — even without colorful skies! It’s where we live!! I love it! Hope you have a great weekend!

    Interesting quote! Is San Francisco quite chilly during the summer months?

    That is a lovely picture. I was in San Francisco once in August and I thought it was winter too.

    Fog in San Francisco? How unusual – it’s always been sunny when I’ve been there! Anyway, nice photo.

    Looks so cloudy and foggy. Is it unusual for a summer weather?

    Regarding your inquiry, I am taking time off from memes, been busy on a special project and some travel plans, hoping to share someday.

    This is one quote I have yet to hear from Mark Twain. Interesting design for a conservatory. Beautifully white-washed and uniquely wooden. πŸ™‚

    interesting conservatory. If it is a botanical garden, it should be a great place to take macro shots of flowers.

    My path through the oaks is delightful but someday I would love to walk through the gardens of Golden Gate Park.

    Oh, the sky is so plain that it looks like a white sheet has been spread. πŸ™‚

    the conservatory of flowers looks so inviting!

    It was wonderful your showing us a foggy sky instead of our usual bright blue ones. I think this looked like a lovely day…not do sunny and hot. Lovely shot.

    That is indeed one gray sky – we get a lot of those in Michigan, too. It makes for interesting photos and helps us not take our beautiful blue skies for granted.
