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.
A dog in the sky
A red-tailed hawk in a sycamore tree
The moon rising in the broad daylight of the afternoon
The highest mountain peak around
The many branches of a tall pine tree
Or the sun shining through the poplar leaves in the fall
There’s that vividly blue sky again. And I love the tall pine tree. Great angle!
I thought about you yesterday because the sky looked just like that, and several days of gray cloud cover.
Very gray here today. But we had sunshine and blue skies yesterday (and 80 degree weather!) so I can’t complain.
Good for you! It’s way hotter today (I think it will get to 80 degrees) and the sky is light blue from the heat. Yuck.
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!
While driving, I’ve seen a hawk fall from the sky, then when you’re sure it will crash (even though you know it won’t), it pulls up with dinner in its talons. Beautiful sight (except for the dinner.)
Fastest animals on earth, faster than the cheetah!
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.
That really does look like a dog!
I knew I had to snap its photo quickly before it changed into something else. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment!
Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate the time you took to stop by. May your day be filled with joy and peace.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
You’re welcome. I’ve been so busy it’s been hard to visit so many blogs on a regular basis.
Great shots . . . love the “dog” cloud.
I wish we had cumulus clouds more often so I could spot more shapes.
Wonderful gallery for the up! The tree looks majestic.
Thank you! I love pine trees and the way the branches stretch out as far as they can.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment!
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.
