Skywatch

I am posting the flag this week to celebrate the 4th of July. These sunset shots were taken in Annapolis, MD....


Beautiful skies from around the world are waiting to be seen at Skywatch on the side bar.

Flags and skies do go so well together and such a timely image.

I just want to stand up right now and break into song with my right hand over my heart!

"Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?"

Beautiful and appropriate shot!

Stunning and timely shot! Lovely sky is the perfect backdrop!

Kim has the right idea but I'd sing
'Day is done, gone the sun...' - seems to fit it being Annapolis.
I love both shots. Even though the depth of field takes you from the foreground to the sunset the flag still commands all the attention.
I like the way you caught the flag blowing in the second one.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Calm and serene ambience for an Independence Day. It's also my late parents' 62nd Wedding Anniversary if only they're still around.

HI!
Kim, who commented above, must have enlarged the second photo as I just did! I hope everyone who visits enlarges the photos... It's star-spangled!
Happy 4th! ~Maria

The orange is nice and subtle in the gray clouds, too. I like what Babooshka said about flags and sky. It's so true! Nice!
