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.

    Beautiful- I agree with you about the sky and ocean. I think I love it because they join together- no trees, buildings, or fences in the way..just a merging of the two. Always pretty, always awe-inspiring.
