Let It Shine

The sky was magnificent.

I thought it was a fabulous way to end this work week. So was learning that my friend Dimitri, who just completed his Project Biwa fundraiser for the earthquake relief here in Japan, has joined Skywatch Friday with his photos taken during his project! Hope you'll go see here!

And I just realized that Cafe Pasadena, who always has humorous posts with amazing amounts of information regarding the city of Pasadena in California, has joined Skywatch Friday, too! Hope you'll go see here, too!

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend with friends and family!

Enjoy looking at more beautiful skies all around the world here.


  1. Lovely picture!
    Was this taken from your work? I wish I had such a view from my desk, (though I would probably have trouble focusing on work!).

    And thanks for mentioning my post, and Project Biwa once again! :)

  2. Great SKYWATCH photo, Kaori! Love how the sunbeams are streaming down over the city!
    Happy weekend to you, too!

  3. this is a gorgeous photo! the sunlight breaking through the clouds is simply beautiful.

  4. Stunningly beautiful Kaori! The light is gorgeous.

  5. I'll say. It happens so fast. Mission accomplished!

  6. As I said on my blog, most of the SWF photos are much better than mine. Including yours today.

    Thanks for the mention of my blog on SWF. So yes, you're welcome to ck me out but realize my photo doesn't compare with this awesome photo on Shinkjuku's blog here!

  7. Marvellous light and view over the city!

  8. Amazing sky and city shot, Kaori!

  9. You combined it all in a great composition... Brava!

  10. Fabulours sky, the city looks like it goes on and on. Happy weekend, Evelyn

  11. simply divine :) I've never been so high on a building so it's an interesting perspective of the city and the way the sun shines through the clouds is truly beautiful. love your eye for photos :)

    p.s. if you want to join the Earth Wonders photo challenge you have until next Tuesday. it changes every Wednesday. xo

  12. What a stunning sky!

  13. I had to enlarge your photo and use a magnifying glass but that is quite a capture you have there!

  14. Amazing capture. My son was over in your country helping with the earthquake relief a few months ago.

    Thank you for the kind comment on my blog today. I truly appreciate it. :)

  15. Awesome !
