In the first photo, sky is incredibly dynamic and gorgeous! Rippling ocean is calm and peaceful!
The cute otter wants to be her friend.
All of them are so lovely.

Great photos, Sylvia. I think you've had more sun than us the last week, as it's been stormy, thunder, snow, everything. But I'm not complaining as we're finally getting some of the moisture we need. Have a great weekend!

christopher said...

Wonderful reflections...can't decide my favorite...like the sky and otter equally.

And the quotes are tremendous...almost a three way tie for me there...but I favor Nelson's Rockefeller's just a bit.

Nature Rambles said...

Oh, I simply love the duck and turtle shot! Your skies are always spectacular. Again..the quotes make me nod in agreeement!:)

Carletta said...

Sylvia, that first one took my breath away - gorgeous!

Hi Sylvia, I guess I didn't scroll down far enough last week to see these wonderful pictures. I was having some computer issues, so I didn't do a SkyWatch or a SSS this week, but I wanted to stop by and say hi. Have you thought about using "Blurb.com" or another program and publishing thod wonderful headers? What a story they tell; they are wonderful. I can see a joint project there between you two gals.

Have a wonderful week!
