Skywatch Friday "And Glory Shone Round"






Technology has given us the ability to enlarge, enhance, intensify,and basically "redo" a picture.  But, I ask you, what could anyone possibly do to these original "untouched" photos of the sky to make them anymore beautiful!  I was in total awe of the beauty of the sky as it unfolded before me.  Nothing made by man's hand could come close to the magnificence I witnessed.

I could not have said it any better. I would NOT have touched any of these. They are magnificent. It is interesting that this week I have seen more fantastic sky shots than in weeks before. Maybe it is that they were always there, but I like the ones this week more. Your captures are awesome so you must give yourself some of the credit tonight. genie
