Sky Watch Friday

Angel on blue

You get two for one today as I didn't have connectivity in Fallon, Nevada last night. Here's the angel from afar with a beautiful blue sky as her backdrop. Below is a shot of San Geronimo Cemetery. Don't forget to check out the other Sky Watchers and have a great weekend!

Well groomed cemetery. I love the first photo.

It's been a while since I was out that way...we used to have a regular customer in that area who I would deliver to a couple of times a week. Is there still that narrow, one-lane suspension bridge with a wooden floor across the creek? And I think there was another, much smaller cemetery just past the creek from San Geronimo.

I used that area in a story once.

By the way, my daughter really liked that first angel photo. I had saved it as my desktop wallpaper and when she walked into the room she gasped out loud.

Cemeteries are dreamy places. I love them. And I love what you have here. Thanks.

Thank you everyone.

Alan, I'm glad your daughter likes the angel! :) And I'm flattered you made it your wallpaper. I will try and send a special one just for your daughter.

I believe the bridge is still there but I haven't gone by there in a while so I'll make a trip and snap some shots for you. And I'll look for that cemetery too.

Two beauties....
love them both... and it is always nice to see such places kept so well.

Please forgive this 'copy & paste' part of my comment but I am on my rounds checking all the links but wanted you to know I have seen your post and will try to get back again.
On behalf of all other Sky Watchers the team thank you for taking part this week.

The bold blue background really underpins the statue. Fabulous shot.

Love the statue against the sky, that is a stellar shot.
I like walking through cemeteries. the second shot has nice sunlight and shadows, makes for a nice mood.

It's true, cemetery photos are strangely peaceful. Beautiful pictures.

My Sky Watch Friday post is here. Hope you enjoy it.

Hi, I like your statue picture. For some reason I like taking statue pictures. Very good looking that strong blue.
