Waterfront Sky

On Monday afternoon, we decided to take a ride to the Norfolk, VA waterfront, to catch some afternoon sun shots.  The weather was nice on the water, and the sky cooperated!







All of these were taken within 40 minutes of each other...and all but the last 2 were taken from the same location, just in different directions.  Hard to believe there can be so much difference in the same sky!  The last 2 were taken from the same location, just a mile downriver from the first set, facing 2 different directions.  All were taken on the Elizabeth River, in Norfolk, VA.  The river is a very busy, industrial waterway and extremely important to the area.  It leads to the James River, which empties into the Chesapeake Bay.  The other end of the river connects to the Intercoastal Waterway.


Linking to Skywatch Friday.

dramatic skies, I really like the second shot with the ship - I'm not certain what kind that is. I'm wondering how far away you live from here. It seems a nice spot to visit. The colors in the clouds/sky are spectacular. The last shot is very peaceful looking. Happy holiday weekend to you Linda.

Beautiful shots. Blown-up, framed, and hung on the wall, they would look really good in any living room.
