Sky Watch Friday.

Todays two SWF photos are ones I took at my local nature reserve on the edge of my town of Frome in Somerset.

The first was taken as we spent Saturday morning assembling and placing some floating islands into the deepest part of the lake. Actually most of the work was done by others while I took photos for our website. It's a tough job, but someones gotta do it! (-: Seriously though, three of our members braved the chilly waters to get the islands in place. This should provide some great and safe habitat for birds and animals in the future.


The second was taken a couple of days later as some rain clouds were approaching.

Many thanks to the whole gang who maintain SWF site. For many other wonderful images from around the world, please click on the SWF logo on the right hand side.

Perfect shots! Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize__ blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, and our own two eyes. All is a miracle!!! Happy sky watch! Hope too see you @ corner too...

Oh, how interesting! You took fine photos too! Brrr.... I think they need a nice hot drink and a sit by the fire....

That is a beautiful sky to work underneath.
