Crystal blue sky behind the Mt. Soledad cross

Skywatch Friday

The weather in San Diego is unusually warm with beautiful clear skys. Our daughter is flying home tomorrow returning from VERY cold weather in Washington DC and Chicago.  See skys from around the world here at Skywatch Friday.

Crosses have been erected on Mt. Soledid (822 ft.) since 1913 but this cross was built in 1954 as a memorial to veterans who have served our country during times of conflict.  The US Navy administers the federal land just under the cross.  Mt. Soledad and the cross are a visible landmark in San Diego.



  1. That’s an excellent shot!

  2. That’s quite a large cross. It is vibrant in that light. Thanks.

  3. I love the contrast and simplicity here. The bright white against that beautiful blue sky!

  6. I couldn’t comment on your other blog, which has been happening for weeks now, with certain blogger formats. Anyway, that “fluffy cloud” photo is just gorgeous. I also love that mosaic you photographed and use for your blog header.

    And this picture – wow. Everything about it is perfection. Bravo!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog.

  7. Wonderful SWF shot. Great color contrast. Your sky looks the same as our up here in the SF Bay Area. Enjoy the warm days – we need RAIN!

  16. Why such a high fence around it. Is it to keep vandals out? If it is – what a shame that some people are stupid enough to ruin such a remarkable place.
