Skywatch Friday ~ Indian Beach 12-7-09

We decided to go for a drive on one of our coldest days this winter and this is where we ended up. Indian Beach! The wind was bitter cold on the beach and of course we were unprepared and not dressed appropriately for the cold weather. These lighthouse pictures aren't as sharp as they should be do to my shivering. Andy was laughing at me, as I was shaking all over and my teeth were chattering uncontrollably. He even tried to hold me steady while I took the pictures! I think the first lighthouse turned out pretty good, but I had to try and sharpen the second one a little. It was quite an adventure......we even had to cross over some water on a skinny log to get where we wanted to go on the beach.....it was fun!
I love that I caught this helicopter over the lighthouse!
It was so beautiful!
There were no clouds in the sky, which was very strange to see!

I took this picture from up on top of Ecola State Park. I think I prefer the view from down on the beach!
These icicles were down on the beach. Brrr! It was sooo cold!

Please hop on over to SKYWATCH FRIDAY to see other skies from all over the world!

  10. These are a terrific series..wow, the bottom is like a macro of the icicles..gorgeous! The lighthouse shots are really cool and there is something about the second but they each have something unique about the capture. The beach..of those fourth one down might be my fave! All my blessings for a New Year and a New Decade! Regards, Regina-
