Riding in the Sky... SkyWatch Friday



A few more captures from the West Virginia State Fair. I so loved the skies the day we visited, the colors of the carnival rides popped against it. Do click to enlarge them.

For more skies from all around our wonderful world, please stop by and visit Sky Watch-Friday . It's a favorite stop of mine each week.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

You had bluer skies for the fair than we did! Our gas prices dropped a couple of weeks ago. I just did not need to buy any until this week.
