A young woman in a hoodie walks in silhouette atop a Spanish American War era battery along the bluffs of Whidby Island. The Olympic Mountains in the distance were shrouded in clouds. It's Skywatch Friday, and you can see other skies around the globe by clicking here.

This is a very arresting photo. Everything about it is lovely. The silhouette of the walker really makes the photo unique, in addition to the remarkable sky.

This is a beautiful photo. I love how the bright colors of the sky contrasts with the silhouette of the young lady.

Thanks so much to each and every one of you. I'm happy that the image works for you. The young woman walking on the battlement looked like she was walking in the clouds, but was moving fast, so I just saw it on the fly, couldn't compose it as I might have liked if I'd had time to think. Reminds me of the time I caught the woman doing her flex exercises on the base of the Black Sun Sculpture in Volunteer Park in the snow a few years back. Just glad to get the shot and be there at the time. . .but the people in them have no idea how beautiful and fantastic they are. Thanks again.
