Gray Alaskan Sky

Our first day in Alaska the sky was overcast, just as it was for most of our trip.  We had one and one half days of sun, but that was enough.

You can find more skies from around the world at Skywatch Friday, hosted for us by Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and Sylvia.

Thanks for giving me a sneak peak of Alaska. Our University Alumni Reunion will be held there in 2011.

The gray skies are beautiful but I love most the glacier.

Your Header is magnificent, Martha. I'm going to have to put a jacket on before I visit your photos again. Brrrr!

That's a beautiful shot -- was that the sunny day? It looks good to me. I could use a little overcast right now though.

What an outstanding header shot, Martha! And your gray Alaska shot has a beauty if its own. This state has been on my bucket list... some day.

Gaelyn said...

I'm in awe. The glacier view from the Lodge just blows me away! Those low clouds on the mountains under gray skies works, in an almost fantasy type of way.

That is such a beautiful shot - very evocative.

Lovely picture! The skies here are grey too .

Mysterious and eerie, yet so beautiful and serene! Great capture!

Almost in gray scale--which is one of the things that makes this kind of shot so attractive. In this heat it's just the thing to cool off the psyche.

Fantastic shot. Alaska is what hubby and I love to visit one day. Happy weekend!

Martha, I've always wanted to go to Alaska, so thanks for bringing us along.

I've been looking around your blog and it certainly is a place I want to come back to explore.

Even on an overcast day the view is beautiful.

We had a lot of rain in Scotland, too. Two days of sun--one in Wales and one in London.

In spite of lack of sunshine, you got some terrific photos and lots of wonderful memories.
