Skywatch Friday

Hi everyone!

We've been having a lot of rain in Montreal this summer, but every once in a while, we do get a day where it's sunny or we at least get sunny breaks. On such day was on Friday last week, which is when I got this quick picture of the Oratory before leaving on a tour with a group. You'll undoubtedly notice the scaffolding along the wall and the edge of the roof, which was recently put in place because they're redoing that whole section of copper roofing as well as the joints between the granite blocks that the upper part of the Oratory are built with.

I hope that you all have a great weekend and that you're having more summer-like weather than we have been here in Montreal! If you're not, then you can see some awesome sunset shots taken by my fellow Skywatchers here:
