Skywatch

When visiting the USMC Museum last month, I especially liked the view of the sky through the glass ceiling. Among other exhibits, the museum has an art gallery containing the work of 350 artists and photographers.The entrance foyer where I took my sky shot is flooded with light.
Skies from around the world can be seen at Skywatch on the side bar.
