Gorgeous Skies At The Salt Pond In Eastham On Cape Cod.

The skies were magnificent as we hiked the Salt Pond Trail, also known as Nauset Marsh Trail, the other day.  I took a horizontal photograph and thought that it looked pretty. The sky and clouds were spectacular.  And then I took a vertical one. Wow! What do you think?
