Skywatch Friday - A cool sky behind a cool tree

Thanks so much for all your comments last week when I was the guest host to Skywatch Friday...
I was only able to visit a few blogs due to my extremely slow internet connection, so if I missed yours, please don't think I am a snob...I tried to visit as many as I could...

Have a great weekend, and have fun traveling the world through the bloggers who participate in Skywatch Friday...

Breathtaking. If I could produce one photo in my life this perfect, I think I might be happy.

Love your blue cart below, too. SO blue.

And I can only say "wow" to the answer to the quiz on the post before that.

It was so nice to read your beautiful text:)

I love old trees and I love your pictures:)

Love the effect you used - it makes the tree look like a rock!!!

I adore these trees and have many photos of them - not on digital though - which is a pity.

Hope your connections are better this week!!

I just came from John's blog. Wow. And come here and am stunned all over again. I am not sure this is healthy but I like it. Beautiful work.

I reintroduced Better Blog Writing today but have not been able to do much on it as I pulled a hamstring muscle.

Dewdrop said...

My goodness! Your shots blow me away. I love your work! The colors are so dramatic and beautiful! Wonderful!

John said...

Impressive capture!

Laura ~Peach~ said...

WOW cool tree and sky! very cool tree!

Reluctantfarmchik said...

I wonder if I put a frame around my pictures if they'd look as stunning as yours. What a fantastic capture. I don't think anything would bring my photo quality to this standard. Excellent post. I love the contrast in texture and color.

Hello again, Scotty:)

Thank you for your nice comment:)

At Quint's blog he wright that he has been on a long vacation. And that he could not have the long blog-times he used to have. He had to take care of his health. But he will visite us from time to time. But not as he used to.

I "spoked" to him a few days ago:) And he was as usally. A very nice comment that got my smile on my face. A typical Quint-comment:)

Go into his blog and say hello. I'm sure he will be very happy for it:)
By the way: He have a new name on his comment. But you will know him from his comment-photo.

Cheers, Pernille

That's both an amazing tree and sky. I liked your commentary on SWF from last week, although I didn't have a moment to try to post something when I had internet access.

This week, I had some time so I posted some rainbow pictures as well as the boat racing in Salavan. My post is over here
