Looking at the Sky on Friday

It snowed here in Connecticut on Wednesday - though thankfully not the big behemoth of a snowstorm that they were originally warning us about - the day before that, though, was an absolutely picture-perfect day with beautiful clear February skies and temperatures in the low 40's. It was the type of day that just screamed at me to go out and find a picture for Tisha's Looking at the Sky on Friday meme and who am I to refuse the call of a meme?  Exactly!  So I set off down to the Groton side of the Thames River where I was able to capture this shot of a seagull in flight:

Sometimes I just get lucky! Speaking of getting lucky, click on over to today's Looking at the Sky on Friday and see what sorts of skies Tisha's other participants have to offer - I bet you luck out and find there are some beautiful ones!

    Did you Photoshop it a lot?
    I want to know! :)

  10. The blue skies and sun's rays are stunning, a simple look at nature. However, the sun glare shows up on the trailing edge of the gull's wings, leaving a bronze glow on the bird. Nice view from a D60!

  15. The photo said unavailable here, but I clicked it and it took me to Flickr. I could see it there. :)
    It's beautiful, Linda. I love how the sun's rays are beaming down and lighting up that seagull. Brilliant!!! Those beautiful blue skies are breath taking.

    Thanks so much for playing along.

    Have a great weekend.
