SkyWatch#12 - Haiku Friday #74


These 4 photographs
taken last December ... have
been cropped and 'collaged' ...

My unsteady hands
created a bit of blur ...
within 'rainbow' streaks

Cropping images
allows for a more 'precise'
product in the end.

Note: As always, clicking on the images will 'biggify' them for better viewing.
For others participating in Haiku Friday this week go to A Mommy Story. To see my previous Haikus, click on the Haiku Friday label below this post or in the sidebar.

Love those dipping suns inthe sky and the clouds like living prehistoric animals crawling out of the slime.
I have to rely on auto-focus as my eyes have lost their accuracy. We just work within our limitations.

Awesomeness!! I love what you've done here. :D

Don't quite get it. I don't see any cropping*? Just resizing and collaging. Did I miss something?
It's a beautiful sequence, though!:)

Cheers, Klaus

*Cropping is defined as the removal of the outer parts of an image to improve framing, accentuate subject matter or change aspect ratio.

What a gorgeous series of photos. I like the rainbow light in some of them too. Great clouds. They make a nice collage.

Lovely pictures. I need to find some program that will work on my MacBook that will allow me to do some more creative thing--like you collage.

Thanks so much to each of you for visiting my Haiku Friday/Sky Watch at Sacred Ruminations this week. I enjoy the challenge of combining these two activities and am always delighted to find comments. Visiting your blogs to see what you’ve shared is equally pleasant, and it’s always fun to encounter ‘new folks’ in the Blogosphere while checking in with more familiar ‘virtual’ friends. The range of ‘skies’ shared world-wide is awesome indeed! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are experiencing a delightful day!
Hugs and blessings,
