Sky Watch Friday - Speckled Sky

Today (Thursday) is ANZAC day in Australia, where the country remembers those who have served, and especially those who have died, in Australia's wars.  So this is a very brief post.  My family have been at a music production involving my good lady wife for most of the day.

This post is of no real relevance to ANZAC day - but I suspect that the freedom of speech the seems to underlie the idea of blogging would not have come to pass if things had gone differently in the past.

"For it is the doom of men that they forget".


This is another product of my trip to Perth.  I like the combination of the linear cranes, the reflections and (above all else) the fluffy, speckled sky.



You can find more skies at Sky Watch Friday.

Beautiful sky and reflection, Stewart. ANZAC day sounds like our Memorial day, we celebrate in May. Have a great day!

Very pretty cirrocumulus clouds dotting your blue sky.
You certainly got your money's worth out of your Perth trip.

Thanks for the history lesson,yes and your Lady Wife too singing her freedom! What we take for granted in a free society, even singing out loud. We must remember the wars but sadly forget too soon and get into another. Best wishes, mary
