Skywatch Friday - Blue Skies At Last !!!

After weeks I've fairly dreary skies, interspersed with the occasional blue, we are finally seeing consecutive days of brilliant blue up there in them heavens!! Spring may finally be on the way. :-)

While there is nothing really remarkable about this photo does mark a big forward step in my learning curve with my 35mm SLR film camera.

A photographer friend of mine, suggested that I buy a polarizing filter for my lens.

Oh, the difference it makes, especially when you are photographing a scene with a blue sky and clouds.

Run of the mill photo or not ..I was over the moon when I brought this snap up on my computer. I saw a bright blue sky and white fluffy clouds .. instead of the pale, whimpy images I'd been getting previously.

Three cheers for polarizing filters!!! :-)

Taken at Virginia Lake, Reno, last week ... the trees are still bare, but beginning to bud and the lake was free of ice. The sky was glorious !
