Sky Watch Friday #10



It's time for Sky Watch Friday again! The time of week each of us "Sky Watchers" pull out our favorite sky shots and display them for the world to see. :o) This week was kind of disappointing for me. I had some gorgeous skies to shoot, but my camera did not bring out the beauty in the shots. So what you see here was 10 times prettier in person...the colors were much more vibrant.

This is a tree that is about a mile and a half away from my house. I love this tree. Builders cut down so many trees these days and I was so happy they left this tree out in the field for people to enjoy!







To see more Sky Watch shots, or to join in the fun, head on over to the Sky Watch Friday blogspot!

I love the effect of the light on the tree. It is grand--mythic.

Trees are beautiful and this one looks like it has its roots firmly planted in the ground with plans to stay there. Nice photos.

It IS a beautiful tree, with the sky as a perfect backdrop.

Trees are special and you've made this one even more special by photographing it against a lovely sky.

Those soft colors are wonderful!

Beautiful shots. I have the same thing happen with colors at this time of night. Not sure what it is, but it seems like what I see out the door and what I see in the camera are worlds apart and I have to work really hard to get the camera to take the beauty into itself. These are beautiful shots, though. It looks like a beautiful tree. Glad it survived.

I have so many shots that really didn't demonstrate the real event. I'm glad you shared these. I love the colors. I know it must have been magnificent to witness in person!
