Sky Watch Friday:

All winter long I dreamed about days like this, the sun is shining brightly, the sky is deep blue in color, the air is still and temperatures are in the 70s. I can feel the warmth, of this day, starting to defrost my bones.

I love the angle used for both pictures. the sky is such a pretty blue in both! Great catches.

Michele said...

Oh yes, the sky is a nice rich blue. We are getting warm temperatures as well but there is snow forecast for this weekend and I'm hoping the weathermen are wrong!!
Have a good weekend.

Lovely shots today. The one I also enjoyed was the one of the coins on Wednesday.

I'm testing a new Sigma macro lens at the moment and have posted a few shots already, but I have some great shots of coins in low light that have turned out pretty good!

Dottie said...

I love those kind of days too! Very beautiful photos!

Nice shots

SandyCarlson said...

Me, too, and I'm savoring every moment. It would be a crime to rush!

Carletta said...

I don't know what that first one is, but I like the composition and angle of it.
The bottom one is soothing.

Great Skywatch Photos!

Snap Catch said...

great catch! In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west, the people create distinctions out of their own minds and then beleive them to be true…. mine’s up too hope you can drop by

Berit T said...

Tom said...

These are very fine approaches to SKY WATCH theme.
A fantastic angle for framming both photos gives us strong colours and a nice sensation of space!

To you and your puppies, two very different beautiful sky images. Low ground shots aren't easy, but you gait that so well.

lv2scpbk said...

Beautiful sky. I'm not sure what the first photo is of or what it's for, but I really like the 2nd one.

i really love these, the deep sky is such a great background for the interesting foregrounds.

Andree said...

Isn't it marvelous? I love the stalks from last years plants, like you show here. There is a promise in them, even as brown as they are.

Dina said...

"Defrost" your bones. That's good. I'll have to remember that for next winter to spring.

Scotty Graham said...

Ah, I can just feel those nice temperatures in your photos. Good Stuff!!

Thanks so much for your visit to my blog, I hope we can both become regulars...

Cheers,
