SkyWatch Friday and Looking at the Sky on Friday / In Flight


 
The pier at Seal Beach, California

 

 
After the morning haze lifted a nice blue sky appeared along the southern California coastal areas.
I photographed these seagulls flying over the pier at Seal Beach at about 2:00 in the afternoon, 
yesterday,

The gulls are loitering above. Not that it's much work, they just open their wings to the fullest and let the sea breezes carry him aloft as he expends little to no energy. Such a brilliant blue sky, a beautiful view!

Beautiful blue skies and wonderful seagull captures. We have no blue skies today at the beach ... just drizzily rain under grey skies. Molly is beside herself and I'm a bit stir-crazy too.
Hugs and blessings,

Those seagull shots are quite amazing. Isn't it something how the sky can change in California?
