This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

There is, to me, something special about the sky and the ocean together.  It may be that the ocean magnifies the beauty of the sky.  White clouds in a beautiful sky above the sea reminds of the glories of God’s creation.

Sunrise on our last morning at the beach gave us a silhouette of the Ocean Isle Beach pier with the red sky reflected in the water.

When Betsy and I drove from Rocky Mountain National Park to Yellowstone National Park in September, 2012, the trip took us through parts of Colorado and Wyoming that we hadn’t visited before.  Part of the time we traveled through Wyoming’s Medicine Bow National Forest and along the Hoback River.

While we were eager to get to Yellowstone, the scenery was so pretty that we ended up stopping several times just to enjoy the view.  The Hoback River is not very deep, but the water was pretty and clear.

I’m sure we could have made the trip in less time if we hadn’t stopped to enjoy the view and get photos.  But looking at these pictures now, the extra time on the road was very well worthwhile.
