Looking at the Sky on Friday

I am very happy to report that there have been blue skies to look at here in New England lately and you don't even have to wear a jacket to go out and gaze at them anymore either! I lucked out and had two gorgeous days on my last two days off so I took full advantage of them and went out with my camera both days. Now I just need more days off to sort the pictures out!

I've probably got more sky pictures now than there are Fridays in the year to post them but I suspect that's a good thing as I'll never have a good excuse not to participate in Tisha's meme! This week's photo was one that I took from the front porch of my house looking up through the branches of the tree in the side yard. I thought it came out kinda cool ...

Granted, you can only see a bit of sky through the green branches but the bits you can see are a beautiful blue! In my world blue plus green equals happy!

Don't forget to swing by Tisha's Looking at the Sky on Friday meme for some more great sky pictures!


  1. i like how the sun is sneaking through the trees! love the shot!

  2. Yes, after 16 days of rain, we have had a week of beautiful weather, so much so that the Mrs. has decided we can paint the house this weekend, yippee! Hope you have a great weekend and get out and enjoy that weather while you can.

  3. yes, blue plus green DOES equal happy!

  4. The effect that the sun has on this photo is awesome! I love the shot through the green trees with the blue canvas in the background. What a creative capture. Nicely done, Linda.

    I'm glad you have no excuses not to play along. :) Your photos are always some of my favorites.

    I hope you have a beautiful weekend.


  5. Blue and green is happy in my book as well :o)
    Have a wonderful holiday weekend! I suspect you will be at work...

  6. I love the flare of sunlight!

    beautiful colors lady, just plain beautiful!

  7. Terrific shot! (Per usual :)) I love the contrast...

  8. aaaah! Glorious!

    I'm sitting here reconstructing my accounting while it pours like crazy!

    I'm in the homestretch I think! But I won't know til the last item is loaded in. Keep your fingers crossed for me! :-D

  9. I enjoyed looking at all the photos this week!

  10. Hope you have a super weekend!
    ♥ HUGS ♥

  11. What a beautiful shot! I love how the sun is peeking through the greens. Happy LATSOF!

  12. Good job behind the lens as always, Linda! Most folks would agree w/ya that "blue + green = happy"! Have fun, and continue the good "shooting"!

  13. That sky needs a blanket on the ground under it so that you can just lay back and look up for hours.

  14. Brings to mind for me that song, "Blue skies, nothing but blue skies...." and I can't remember the next lines now but I'm betting someone else probably can.
    I thought it was pretty cool too how the sun looks so tiny, with just that little ball glittering between the leaves. Good shot, Kid.


Thanks for visiting!
