I suppose you have favorites. I liked them all for this purpose. Skywatch.

George said...

You got some beautiful sky reflections -- I like all of them.
Your rose dedication was wonderful. That's very thoughtful of you.

RuneE said...

I have no problem supporting the purpose of the rose - in addition it was a beauty.

Reflections are fun and I think my favourite must be the one Ferris-wheel. Double fun.

PS Thank you for the nice comments!

Great idea to send that rose to the Australian victims! It's a beautiful rose. Your sky watch photos are stunning. I think the second one is a winner.


The rose and the dedication was a wonderful gesture!

And some great reflections in your SkyWatch post! I love the second pic, the closeup of the windows!

Brilliant captures! Each one is so interesting and artistic.
