I discovered last week that Highland Park Public High School is a great spot for a Sky Watch post. I drove by a few days later and saw the cupola (is that the right term? more cupolas here) against a sky of blues and pinks. Too bad I was driving kids and had no camera with me.
In other news, my red berry tree from last week was ID’ed as a hawthorn. Here’s the post about the red berry hawthorn tree.

A nice angle and thus a great capture. I don’t get tired of bare branches and boughs against the sky.
It certainly is a very great spot to take sky photos with that tower in the background.
Pretty fancy high school, with its own cupola. Good sky to go with it. Yofi!
I think you are very right that it is a good photo opportunity. Probably any sky will look good with the trees and cupola. Very nice!
That sky looks almost Belgian!! Dark grey clouds, and full of drama!
Beautiful angle here. I learn something here, cupola. See you next week.
This IS a good spot to take sky photos from, Leora. 😉
Great perspective, I really like this shot.

This is so wonderful! I love the clouds in this photo.
My SWF entries are posted here and here. Hope you can stop by, too. Happy weekends!
The skies never cease to amaze. I carry around a guide book to clouds … as the birds are always too fickle, and often too small for me to see … whereas the clouds are just the right size and shape, and always right up there whenever I look.
A sky with a sense of mysterious 🙂
The school has a classic look, especially when set against that late autumn sky. If you didn’t know it was a school, the classic lines could be almost like Independence Hall or some Revolutionary era building in Boston. A noce shot!
Leora: Neat capture and you certainly got the term right. A cupola rising into the sky.
Very dramatic and I hear bad weather is heading your way…stay safe
Very nice shot! Love the angle as well 🙂
Great catch! Happy SWF! 🙂
Good capture of a great skywatch. Look forward to seeing lots more of the cupola.
