Skywatch Friday

There's a tree along the Lafayette Reservoir that
is decorated by locals with ornaments every Christmas.
It never fails; they hang ornaments of all shapes and sizes.

Here are two that caught my eye
against the late afternoon winter sky...
Lafayette, CA
(1/4/10)

Very pretty! I like seeing the one in focus and the other softly blurred. Of course, the sky is a gorgeous shade of blue!

That is such a nice community thing to do.
When our grandchildren were little and all assembled in our house on the mounten, we had a ritual where everyone, large and small, took a glass bauble and hung one on each little spruce and fir tree so that none of them were sad to be missing out at christmas.

Because you have come,
I have hung these ornaments
to give you delight.


Chilling grey sky!

Delightful discovery ... kewl capture! People do the same thing here and often the bulbs remain hither and yon for a long time.
Hugs and blessings,

What a simple yet gorgeous photo. Reminds me of something I pass by driving down to the shore in the winter (visible, thus, only to those few who can appreciate the shore in the winter)...some people put up a christmas tree on a tiny little platform in the middle of a small lake....
