Sky Watch Friday - Imperial Sky

My theme for this week's SWF picture is: Imperial sky!
The sky over the Imperial Palace,
Michaelerplatz, Vienna.
Wonderful! What's more thrilling than a relaxing stroll through the city, sightseeing...


But what's that?
There are so many dark spots over the imperial roofs!




Right! The Russian crows, Vienna's winter guests, are looking for a sleeping place,
which they usually find in the woods of the Vienna Prater!


Watch the sky all over the world and see if there is a place where it is roughly as exciting as it is in Vienna... ;)

These are great, Maria! The clouds appear to be calling attention to the palace as in a cartoon.

The silhouetted building and cloud formations are lovely. You certainly have no shortage of crows!

Hi Maria!
Such dramatic skies ~ yes, very Imperial!

The crows look amazing flying over the palace!

Here where I live, we know the weather is getting colder when the little dark-eyed juncos come back ~

Enjoy a restful and lovely weekend ~

Beautiful sky, I like the way the clouds radiate from the dome. The crows, they can be a problem.

Wonderful shots!!! The scenery is so...winter!!! Do you remember what I was telling you last year about the weather? It looked so strange to me to have winter at the end of October and now...with 6 degrees in Brussels it's winter for sure!
