Skywatch Friday

Do you know what the official state colors of California are?

Blue & Gold: blue represents the sky and sea; gold symbolizes the color of the precious mineral mined by the 49ers from the Sierra foothills. If you come to California, you'll see a lot of these colors!

I didn't know they are the state colors. And you have presented them well in the Sky Watch shot! Makes me feel like gazing endlessly.

I've never been to California, but I will one day - with my camera.

Loved the composition of your Wordless Wednesday shot, too. I like the way you choose your angles.
