BLUE SKIES OVER PUNTA CANA IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC FOR SKYWATCH FRIDAY
John William Strutt, third Baron Rayleigh won The Nobel Prize in Physics 1904. If you are at all interested in the scientific reason for why the sky is blue click . The short answer is; the process called Rayleigh scattering.
I wonder what Baron Rayleigh would think about “SMILEY GUYS” in the sky?
I thought Blue Sky was caused by “I’m feeling Lucky” using Picasa 3.
Landscapes, skyscapes and sun don’t forget the Polarizing Filter. So What Does It Do? First of all it can darken blue skies turning them a deep, rich blue.
If you really want to know about the color blue go see what the “kids” have to say.
Right now I’m doing a study on ( UV ) radiation or SUNBURN. Did you know: The use of sunscreen is known to prevent the direct DNA damage that causes sunburn and the two most common forms of skin cancer, basal-cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. However, if sunscreen penetrates into the skin, it promotes indirect DNA damage, which causes the most lethal form of skin cancer, malignant melanoma. This form of skin cancer is rare, but it causes 75% of all skin cancer-related deaths. Increased risk of malignant melanoma in sunscreen users has been the subject of many epidemiological studies. From WIKIPEDIA
To late for me I’m “TOAST” but thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to visit:
ARE you serious about the sunscreen risks! Now what!? Guess I'm dead in the water along with you being "toast!"
But...I love events like this in the sky! What great framing the clouds provided...fabulous shots and it must have been a great day "out in the sun!"
Thank you for this very informative post. It's very timely for me as I've been thinking about polarizing filters. Happy Skywatch!
A great and very informative post, Joe! I'd be toast too if we had that much sun!! Love your playful skies! Marvelous post, great photos as always! Have a wonderful weekend!
Thank you for the information and link.
Fantastic skies and captures.

Are you serious ? I hope not.
But the sky painted a beautiful picture. Have a lovely weekend.
Following is my url.
Fabulous shots! Makes me want to go skydiving now!
The face on my parachute wouldn't look so happy since I've never skydived nor do I want to.
Oh brother -- it's all over for me! LIve laugh and enjoy the sun with the time I have left I guess ;>))
Beautiful SkyWatch photo
Have a nice weekend
Thank you for sharing info.
Have a great weekend.
Baron Rayleigh would probably be SMiLiNG --seeing the Smiley Guys in the sky!!!!!
I hope that sunscreen is SAFE.... It's got to be better than getting a bad sunburn...
Fantastic photos for SWF! Happy skywatching!
You sure get some interesting sky photos! Makes me want to be at the beach NOW!!!
Forgot to add that I really laughed at your comment that blue skies were caused by Picasa's "I'm Feeling Lucky"! I thought about that as a way to cure the blahs when we were back in Oregon last Winter. It didn't last long though .
The second photo looks like the sky is an open mouth ready to take the glide. Happy weekend!
Fantastic shots in the truest sense of the word.
I couldn't do that for love or money!
Joe: That is really cool.
