SkyWatch Friday: Blue walking sky and dappled sky back home



The sky was blue with barely a whisper of clouds when I walked around Lake Lynn. The sky was dappled above my crepe myrtle tree in my back yard.

Oh you have a lovely summer day for a walk.

That crepe myrtle is really in bloom. I've never seen them grow this large. I was thinking of getting one because the last two that we got didn't survive.

Hello dear friend!
This lake is so beautiful! Adorable sky and I loved the perspective as well!

Wow your crepe myrtle is in way better voice than mine! That's what I call "full song".

Don't think I've ever been to Lake Lynn... It's not on my usual "loop", so I don't think about it.

Gorgeous shots, Carver, as always! What a great place to walk! And such rich, wonderful colors!

Have a great weekend!

What a fantastic place to walk and with such clear blue skies too.
I recall last year loving your crepe myrtle.This year too.
My garden myrtle has white flowers.

Beautiful! That's a great board walk.

Those are both beautiful but the first one is my favorite. Pictures of roads and paths make me wish I could step right into the picture.

Liked that first one very much. That wooden ramp or bridge leading into the distance gave it great depth.

What a great contrast between the blue sky and the dappled one! Very beautiful Carver! Have a great weekend. Fortunately the damage in my house can be repaired!

Just love the first one. The board walk is just so inviting. We don't have crepe myrtle here.

Gorgeous sky - I have the same kind of trees around our apartment complex - we have it in white, red an purple. Love their bloom! Great puffy sky!

Gaelyn said...

What marvelous skies to walk under and return home to.

Carol said...

Great shot of Lake Lynn and I love the boardwalk leading into the photo. The crepe myrtle is gorgeous; I don't think I've seen that tree before.

Jan K. said...

Wonderful shots, Carver.
I love both of them, because they're so harmonious and peaceful.

Happily Retired Gal said...

Both are lovely sky views! That wooden walkway is most inviting ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Lake Lynn, I'll have to tell my buddy about the name of this lake. She'll be thrilled to know a lake this beautiful carries the same name as her :)

Have a good weekend Carver and thanks!!! :)

Janie said...

Your crepe myrtle tree is looking fine beneath the dappled sky. Looks like you had great weather for your walk around the lake.

Regina said...

I love the lake. I love the boardwalk. I love the blue sky. But that crepe myrtle is fantastic! What a specimen! (Mine isn't even 3 feet high and isn't blooming yet. I don't predict big things for it in my climate. It's pretty when it blooms, but it will never be as spectacular as yours.)

Carver: Both shots were truly beautiful, thanks so much for sharing.

Denise said...

Hi Carver, these are pretty spectacular photos. Thanks for sharing them and have a great weekend.

Wren said...

Nice, Carver. There's a nice contrast between the two photos.

Ebb Tide said...

This is the kind of blue skies that will entice me to walk. How lovely!
