Blue Monday, Mellow Yellow Monday / A Fine January Day


We have had nice blue skies in the mornings with some clouds in the afternoon.  The temperature has been in the 70's!  It was a fine day, yesterday, for an airshow at our local small plane airport.  Sky diving was one of the events of the day.

The plane was at about 12,000 feet.



The sky was full of excitement as 18 skydivers took their jumps!  I couldn't catch all of them because they scattered so quickly.
But, the following photos show the beautiful scene it was, AND, they all reached the ground safely.
