Going through my photos I found these two which I took some time ago. I wanted a picture of the AWACS plane and got the halo as a bonus.

For really wonderful sky pictures please visit Skywatch Friday

SkyWatch Friday

A sunny day, a lovely view and a beautiful sky. Feels good after a rainy week. A rural area not far from our home. The farm in the distance is located in Germany. The border between Netherlands and Germany is somewhere in the valley. Thanks to a united Europe there are no boundaries anymore and you would not know if you had crossed a border.

This region is traditionnaly Roman Catholic and everywhere along the way you will find road crosses and field crosses. Some of them are real gems. While taking pictures I saw this simple but beautiful cross right next to where I was standing. Only in this road there are three crosses. No pictures of the other two. Too much traffic.

SkyWatch Friday

After two steamy warm days the sky finally cleared just before sunset today. So much fun to look up again.
