Skywatch Friday




My travel for work took me to Roaring Springs PA this morning. The well known Roaring Spring bottled water is captured here. The spring enters into a pond that is home to a number of ducks, fish, & a beautiful fountain. Benches have been provided to allow one to enjoy a bit of peace in the midst of the busy town. I've been told the fountain is lit by colored spot lights after dark, something I hope to see one day. Appleton Paper Company also makes its home here. The images show above are a by-product of the paper making process & is a very familiar sight to residents & travelers. Not a nice or beautiful Skywatch, but very much part of the sky in this area. Why not join in the Skywatch fun by clicking HERE!

I actually think this is pretty. It looks like giant storm clouds. But I'm guessing the smell isn't so pleasant!

At first I thought a storm was brewing - then realized it was smoke.I'm originally from Lancaster County, PA.

I must admit I have never liked the smell of paper mills. But the sky is lovely otherwise!
