Thursday Thirteen - Looking at the Sky

and Haiku Friday too
Original - straight out of the camera
(The mosaic ... in all it's various forms ... contains 13 Views of the same place directly across the street from my patio. Is it not amazing how different the sky can be? Do you not see something odd about the center photo ... something clearly NOT present in the others?)

Thought for Today
"It is always with excitement that I wake up in the morning wondering what my intuition will toss up to me, life gifts from the sea. I work with it and rely on it. It's my partner." Jonas Salk

Again the natural is my fav - I especially like the tile roofs.

Ocean Ripples reminded me of a Monet and Twirl just made me dizzy :)

Someone has been having fun with effects, actions, and presets! Very pretty skies.

Lisa said...

How much fun is this? Love the experimentation! And the quote. Blessings today, Skywatcher.

Keep on having fun with the photos,and thanks for stopping by my blog. I was a pharmacist for 30 plus years and didn't really enjoy the work. Then I worked in the RV industry at a dealership with a camping store which I enjoyed much more. Are you going to post some of the Alaska shots?

I only have PhotoShop Elements, but don't you just love playing with the filters and effects? Great work.

The sky has the tropical look I like, enhanced by the palm trees, stucco siding and red tile roofs, a Pacific Coast style far different than New England! The sky blue and oceanic clouds are delightful!

SandyCarlson said...

The effects are a lot of fun!
