I’m participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge and this week’s theme is up. You can notice quite a lot when you look up, and here are just a few things I captured on camera. Remember you can click on each photo for a larger view.

    There’s that vividly blue sky again. And I love the tall pine tree. Great angle!

  2. Lovely pictures. I like the one of the hawk best because I love looking for hawks while driving. They’re everywhere but easiest to spot in winter without competing colors and foliage. Years ago when we still had a bird feeder, a hawk decided it was the perfect fast food location and set up shop for a couple of days. I didn’t see any birds with birdbrains enough to get caught, though, but I enjoyed watching him/her so closely.

      Thank you! This one was all the way up the tree and not hidden in the middle of it.

      I saw a hawk snatching a pigeon once so I bet your birds knew to stay away. They’re not called birds of prey for nothing!

    Yea! I love UP pictures. Yours are great. My favorites are the cool tree and the poplar leaves.

      Thank you! I usually look down, very low to the ground to capture nature up close (haha, “up” when I’m down!) so this was a photo theme that made me think a bit.

  4. That really does look like a dog!

    I love that dog cloud! The blue sky in all of these is amazing. Love those yellow leaves too.

      Thank you! We’re lucky to have that beautiful sky many months in the year (except the hot summer months). It makes for a nice uniform, contrasting background.

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
