The Skies of Lexington and Rockbridge County ~ 8-30-12

 House Mountain in Late Afternoon

Contrasts in Color

 Sunrise at Highland Belle School
This is where I walk every morning before driving to school.

 Close Up of Sky over Virginia Military Institute
I think is looks like North America 
with the state of Florida  just off of center.

Same Sky but with Virginia Military Institute Popping Up

And last but not least, here is the front of Virginia Military Institute. Buddy's daddy worked at the equipment manager of the football team for 30 years. When he passed away the school honored him by flying the flags at half mast and placed a portrait of him in Cameron Hall. He was a quiet and unassuming gentleman who gave his life to VMI.

This post is linked with Skywatch Friday.


  1. Love pictures of the sky. Are you doing okay? Last year of school? How are the kids behaving so far.

  7. Beautiful skies -- and a great place to walk (I have been way too lazy about my morning walks lately...and I don't even have to do them before I go to work like you do.) Seems like school started awfully early for you.
