New York Skies #SkywatchFriday #AtoZChallenge

Today is "N" day on the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, and is also SkywatchFriday.

How about some beautiful New York State skies?  My theme for A to Z, after all, is "New York State", which leaves things just a little open.

So many places afford views of sunsets, but one of the best is Kershaw Park in Canandaigua, New York, along Canandaigua Lake, one of the Finger Lakes.

Another is Breitbeck Park in Oswego, New York, along Lake Ontario (one of the Great Lakes).

But urban sunsets and skies have their charms, too.  These next few pictures were taken in downtown Brooklyn, New York.

Brooklyn is one of the boroughs of New York City.

These were taken around Christmastime, 2018.

Once you are up above street level, the perspective changes.

 Who says I don't love New York?

My final picture is the sky in my area of New York State on Wednesday.  There was just something about the way the clouds looked, contrasted against the leafing out trees.

Join Yogi and the other sky loving bloggers who meet up every Friday to celebrate #SkywatchFriday.

"N" day of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge.  My theme:  New York State.


  1. Gorgeous pictures! NY has so many facettes :-)

  2. ...the Finger Lakes double the beauty of a sunset.

  3. These pictures just fill me with peace! With all the turmoil in the world, there are some things you can count on. Sunsets. Clouds. And the immensity of the sky. Love these, Alana!

  4. New York skies: beautiful indeed.

  5. I love the puddle shot. I wonder if that pothole has been repaired since then? Probably not, just outlined to make it look like someone's on it! Great use of your N!

  6. It always amazes me, the infinite numbers of looks a sky can have, and most all of them beautiful.

  7. first, second and third are stunning images....

    great shots

  8. Beautiful skies, and a nice variety. You can't beat a pretty sunset over a lake. Have a nice weekend!

  9. The Binghamton area has some of the nicest cloud formations. I remember them from my youth -- and love the one shown here.

  10. Wonderful pictures! New York has so many faces and facettes!

  11. Greetings and Salutations! The heart shape photograph makes my heart burst with joy.

  12. It does look like beautiful day in New York

  13. Yeah, that last image is way atmospheric.

  14. Alana,

    Excellent New York skies shoots, especially the one with the beautiful sunburst colors!
