This was the sky that greeted us in Seattle yesterday morning, heavy with a cloud front, but gorgeous when lit from underneath by Aurora's rosy fingers. It is my shot for this weeks Skywatch Friday. You can see hundreds of skies around the world today. Just take a look through the thumbnails for all the participants here.

Thank you so much to each of you! And yes, Seattle skies are among the loveliest. I took this while out on a walk in my hilly neighborhood, and even so, very hard to find a vantage point without poles, wires, houses and trees becoming the subject instead of the sky. I did have a clear view of Mt. Rainier, but this color show did not spread under the thick low clouds in that direction, so it was majestic, but remained white and cold, unwarmed by dawn's rosy fingers. :-) And as the old adage goes, red sky in the morning, sailor's warning. . .we had rain later in the day.
