Haiku, big sky shots and special effects. Something for everyone!

Gorgeous photos! It's amazing how different the same sky can look depending on time of day, time of year, weather, etc. I love your effects, too.

You and your beautiful skies, I'm always so jealous when I visit your site.

Shelley Munro said...

Your skies look much better than ours do today. It's wet and overcast here in NZ. I enjoyed your photos as usual. :)

Ralph said...

The sky blue paradise comes alive in your sky views. All are nice, but I am drawn to the view of the seagull about to land. It seems like this feathered creature is almost like a planeload of tourists ready to touchdown in a beautiful place - paradise, maybe! Nice!!

Looking @ The Sky on Friday said...

Very nicely done. The solarized version is pretty cool! :) Looks like a lot of fun playing around with your program of choice. Thanks so much for playing along.

Happy Friday!!!

What a beautiful way of saying "they're clouds with their own minds and emotions"....

The collage expressed that line of thought.

Great words from Richard Bach
