Skywatch Friday

The sky has been very blue around here in the San Francisco Bay Area; that's nice if you like sunshine, but we REALLY need some more rain.
Here's a view from Bishop Ranch Regional Open Space.
Everything is very dry and dusty.
The hills are just now starting to show a bit of green grass.
Usually by this time of year, the hills are emerald green. I like blue skies, but I wouldn't mind some dreary overcast ones right now that brought us some rain!

Oh yes, it does look rather dry there.
Going to be a dry spring and summer here, too, with very little snow over the winter. "Flurries" forecast for this weekend, but won't be enough to help the water levels.
Beautiful photos, however, Linnea.

The landscape looks almost brittle there! Looks like a scene from the Australian outback! Still there is beauty!

You rarely get such an awesome sky blue look, as the pollution tans the color of sky. It's an extraordinary look for me. Nice blog.

You've captured a gorgeous blue sky. I wish we could send you some of the rain we've had lately. I really like the tree on the hill top that you've pictured.

Lovely capture and great contrast between the blue of the sky and the yellow-green of the vegetation.

It does look rather dry! I hope you get some rain soon.

We have had a few weeks of storms, rain & flooding... very normal for this time of year as it's the tropical rainy season. I jump at the chance to get out side when the sun comes out (it's very humid though). I am longing for Autumn :)
