SkyWatch: Breaking Through



The Chesapeake Bay was shrouded in heavy rain clouds at daybreak Saturday morning.

After a thundershower passed to our north near Annapolis Md. the sun began to peek through the eastern sky. Sunrise and Sunset normally are best for dramatic photographs but, as in this case, not always.

Happy Sky Watch everyone. For more Sky shots and to join in on the fun visit the gang at the Sky Watch blog

I have been dealing with rheumatoid arthritis in my hands. The chemotherapy drug doesn't stop the pain. Typing is a chore today.

Fantastic photo for Sky Watch Friday, clouds add so much dimension to a good sky photo but that touch of color is striking.
