Skywatch Friday
December 3rd, 2010

A misty November day..

In the morning the sky is a-blush, but the mist hugs the valley floor in the Cawston Basin.

Later in the morning we cross the pass to Penticton where the clouds wind around the hills
 and through the valleys.......

and rises as steam off Yellow Lake

Coming along the bypass on the way into town an osprey circles above, preparing to land 
on its telephone pole nest.

On the way home we pass Luscious Lake in the sunshine

and eventually the road curves and we are in sight of K Mountain, where a few angelic clouds still linger.

A typical November day in the Similkameen, as it was when I first saw this country in the fall of 1943
when I came home with Charles on his embarkation leave and we became engaged.

What a long time ago that was, but the country maintains its rugged beauty
and the Similkameen Skies are a constant surprise.

  8. These are all so beautiful. I love the progression through the day and how the mountains look with the different light.

  9. It is really a very picturesque country area. So much to admire from the blushed sky to mountaintops and lakes already glazed over from ice. Is this an early winter or is it every year the same. When I lived in Switzerland we sometimes got snow in early November but not always. They are lovely photos for SWF. thanks for your visit and enjoy a nice weekend.
