Sky Watch/Things in the Sky


This was a short power pole but I still had to climb a ladder to get this picture.
If you'd like to see more sky photos visit Tom at Wigger's World.

Beautiful picture! of the sky, trees and power pole (which, once upon a time, was a living tree).

I didn't expect to see pine trees that far South. Do you know the names of those trees in the background?

Short power wires or tall laundry lines?

Thanks to you and others, I get a big lift out of trying to outdo myself and post things that may surprise some and make others laugh a bit and most of all make lots of people aware of things that might not know much about.

When somebody actually takes the time to write a comment about my work and what I do, that to me is the biggest gift a person can give another. It is a smile on greeting, it is a welcome handshake, and it gives me and my family some hope that the dementia farm is still down the road.

You, yourself, are an inspiration to me. I come back not only to say, "thanks for visiting and leaving a comment" but thanks for taking the time to photograph things of interest and great beauty. Without that, blogging would be about as exciting as a wart on the end of my nose.

So, thanks for stopping at my blog. And rest assured, when you do, I will always try to visit your blog, in return, and leave a comment on your blog. I might not think your photography is ready for the masterpiece award, but it got my attention.

I hope I am feeling better and can particiapte in Sky Watch again.

Sincerely,

Abraham Lincoln

Climbing a ladder for this photo gave us the opportunity for a different perspective and I like how it turned out!
