SKY WATCH FRIDAY

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Skywatch Friday

Since Monday half Belgium from Brussels til Luxembourg and Germany is covered with a lot of snow which hasn't happened for at least 7 years ! It is so exceptionally cold, last time that this happened was in 1986, where the temperature dropped under - 20 °C (4 F) or even more.

Well wrapped up, I took these pictures looking up into the wonderful blue sky !

How nice that you got snow and sunshine. Those are great shots and really make me feel like I'm right there. Your neighborhood is very picturesque. Greetings from the San Fran Bay Area.

Such beautiful winter shots! Very lovely to see sunshine and snow together in one landscape!

I am still waiting for snow here. Winter bare branches are very pretty when it snows.

Looks cold for sure, but beautiful. Your narrative was a little surprising though. I guess I just assumed cold winters were common in your part of the world. I should have paid more attention to my geography studies back in my school days, eh?

How pretty to see everything snow-covered. All the neighborhood children must be loving it.

It's beautiful but I'm sorry you feel so cold. Blue skies are gorgeous. Unfortunately that usually means cool temperatures in winter. Very nice photos. Thanks for braving the cold to take them.

Beautiful blue skies, albeit cold snowy landscape! Love the shots though. We expect snow tomorrow so hopefully I'll be fortunate enough to capture some great sky shots after the storm passes!

Happy SWF!
