Lovely shots with light and shade, but did I find anything?? Blue sky, beautiful. Greetings from Jean
Hi Jean. Thanks.
What a gorgeous tree and sky! That blue is spectacular! So I'm two hours into the 21st of December, and nothing has happened! Looks like the Mayan calendar just rolled over into another long count cycle. I think it's safe to go to bed. Hee! Hee! Thank goodness it's the longest night of the year, so I can sleep longer. I've been up way too late. Hope the world hasn't ended in your area, and it's just working its way west to reach me! Take care!
LOL! Louise, you're a riot!! No, we're all alive and well on the east coast!!
Oh, I'm a riot right now, Jim! We just got back from Friday Night Date Night at Parkway Grill. I've had 2 1/2 glasses of wine. When I handed Chad (bartender) my empty glass for a third glass he looked at me, held up three fingers, and raised his eyebrow. "A third glass - are you sure, Louise?" "Terry's driving," says I! "Pour on!" T has the next eleven days off, and they are going to be eleven days of fun! Enjoy your weekend! LOLOL!
Vivid and dramatic!
You talkin about me?? Oh,sorry Mitch, glad you liked them.
I love to see the world through your eyes and camera. You notice things many wouldn't see.
Thanks so much Chania. I guess I always look for the 'unordinary' in life. And have no clue why!
I was hoping you would find a squirrel. Sophie probably was too.
Actually Debra, that would have been our previous to Sophie dog, Jessie, who went nuts after squirrels. Sophie? She just doesn't notice them!
Beautiful textures and colors in these shots.
Thank you Pat. I am always attracted to a tree's trunk/bark. Ron taught me my appreciation for trees many years ago...he made me pause and just look at them.
Amazing how straight it grew, each half reaching for the sun.Lovely blue there!
I love pine trees especially ones like this that take on a life of their own.
Twin pines, how great is that? And that sky, so blue. Loved this post, Jim. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
Thanks Inger....Twin Pines, sounds like the name of a 'soap opera'!! lolMerry Christmas to you and yours too Inger.
Sometimes, I think Black Jack is barking up the wrong tree, but she always proves her point sooner or later. The shadows and textures in your photos bring the thought that there may be a squirrel or two hiding among them, but I wasn't able to confirm that idea. And, as so many have mentioned, the radiant blue skies really are spectacular!
I know Black Jack would LOVE this park Carol....as there are 100's of squirrels here! Sophie could care less...her main thought is to find the next puddle!!
I've seen trees with funny bends like that. I always wonder what caused them.Have a wonderful weekend!
This particular one has survived a hurricane (unlike the 10 thousand that didn't in this park) and it also faces the force of the wind from the Atlantic. It's a wonder it is still standing.Linda, have a great weekend too!
Cool bark, and your sky is Colorado Blue. I like bark, and gnarly old roots too.
You are so right, Terry! It is Colorado blue! And I love it. Jim takes spectacular photos!
Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
