Skies, Scenery, and a Quote

Friday's here and I have five images to link to Five on Friday and Willy Nilly Friday.  I'm also sharing a few of the images with other linkups. 

1. Yesterday we had a bright blue sky with white clouds, but don't be fooled. Temperatures started out at a freezing level and and felt that way all day. If you like clouds as much as I do, drift over to Skywatch Friday and see what other bloggers are posting.

2. Trees reflected in a pond provide my contribution to Weekend Reflections and Scenic Weekends.


3.  Here's a deer we saw yesterday at Skyline Drive. I seem to have caught her eating with her mouth open!

4. It wouldn't be fair to mention Skyline Drive without sharing one of the views, would it? This one qualifies for Friday Greens.


5. Another sky shot serves as a background for a quote from Martin Luther King. 


Here's a longer version of that quotation from Dr. King:
“When evil men plot, good men must plan. When evil men burn and bomb, good men must build and bind. When evil men shout ugly words of hatred, good men must commit themselves to the glories of love. Where evil men seek to perpetrate an unjust ‘status quo’, good men must seek to bring into being a real order of justice.”
