The sky in this week's pictures is reflected in gazing globes. All four have been found in the gardens surrounding the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse in North Wildwood, New Jersey. I came across each of these globes during different years, and in each one you can find reflected the lighthouse itself as well as the garden surrounding it, and the sky above.
Each summer the gardens at Hereford are different from the previous year. I have rarely been disappointed. Thousands of local people and tourists have been through them, and I imagine that thousands of photographs have been taken there.
I don't know why the globes fascinate me so, but they always have, and I usually attempt to capture the lighthouse in each one, and to avoid finding an image of myself there as well.
The most recent is this one, surrounded by yellow flowers.
which we saw on a visit two weeks ago.
If you visit Wigger's World, you will find our kind host, Tom, without whom there would be no Sky Watch, and a list of more than 200 participants in Sky Watch Friday.
