What a dramatic skyscape, Kay. It reminds me of a window shade slowly being pulled down.

Now I can say I've been to Russia--vicariously, of course!

A MAN WHO LOOKED UP AT THE SKY

A man who looked up at the sky
Saw ravens and clouds flying by.
He had to look up,
The sky filled his cup—
He’s my kind of sky-watching guy!

O Kay, that must have been so great to sit there in your cruise ship on the lake watching this sun put on a show for you!

I would so much like to travel...and to see Russia. I'd like to think of a new career where travel was a burden to many, but not to me.
These images are stunning...thank you for sharing. I'm living on your coat tails for now.

I can just imagine how lovely it was to look at from the deck. The last photo is especially wonderful, with the doubled effect.
