Hammads Weekend Sky #41

Another early morning attempt at trying to get some colour into my weekend sky photos. The sun was just above my horizon, through the trees, so the sky isn’t the blue of previous photos.

Here comes the sun, it’s golden glow through the trees

The sunlight on the trees

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #27

The morning started quite foggy but I was too weary to get up and grab a photos. These are a bit later. Had to add two this post as I like the light clouds and subtle blue. Later it became quite overcast and cool. Now the sun is shining and it’s warm.

Your sky song for today

Early morning is for the birds

Early morning is for the birds
There is a place
to sit
enjoy
early morning
a cuppa
bird chatter
First rays
slowly lighten
appear
tree tops
a cuppa;
bird chatter…….

There is a place
to sit
enjoy
early morning
a tree
bird chatter
First rays
slowly lighten
birds appear
slowly
a tree;
birds chatter…..

There is a place
to sit
enjoy
early morning
a tree
bird chatter
First rays
slowly lighten
more birds
appear
a tree;
birds chatter…..

There is a place
to sit
high
early morning
a tree
bird chatter
First rays
slowly lighten
feeling warmth
feathers
a tree;
birds chatter…..

There is a place
to sit
among branches
early morning
a tree
bird chatter
First rays
slowly lighten
facing sun
appears
a tree;
birds chatter…..

There is a place
to sit
lower
early morning
a tree
bird chatter
First rays
lighten faster
in the bark
feeding
a tree;
birds chatter…..

There is a place
to sit
enjoy
early morning
a tree
bird chatter
First rays
cast shadows
looking about
gone
bird chatter;
a tree.

There is a place
to sit
enjoy
early morning
a cuppa
bird chatter
First rays
slowly lighten
appear
tree tops
a camera;
birds chatter…….

Sneaking into Debbies Six Word Saturday

Here we are again getting set for seeing the last photo from your cameras SD card or the last photo from your phone on the 31st October.

The rules are simple:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 30th October.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments
5. Tag “The Last Photo” or #LastOnTheCard

Here’s mine

From my phone Samsung Galaxy S9

From my camera Canon PowerShot SX70HS

and from my other back-up camera I don’t use very much and often forget to include, a Canon PowerShot A1200

Perspective #9

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: Square Perspective

Yesterdays Square Perspective has had a few requests as the ethereal mood of Perspective #8 did cause a few comments and a need to see the full scene. Luckily for me I took more than one photo of the scene. As requested, here it is.

Here is the song I was thinking of adding but changed my mind

Perspective #8

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: Square Perspective

Don’t know what’s going on? Well here’s the clues from Becky – The only absolute rule for joining in is that your main photograph must be square in shape, but here are a few more hints just in case;

  • Art – the method by which solid objects drawn or painted on a flat surface are given the appearance of depth and distance.
  • Geometry – the way that objects appear smaller when they are further away and the way parallel lines appear to meet each other at a point in the distance.
  • Point of View – a particular way of considering (looking at) something or the capacity to view things in their relative importance
  • Vista – seeing something over distance or time

The Winter mornings are quite a show at the moment.

The Pelican who can

The inspirational quote from Debbies at Travel with Intent

Sob, heavy world
Sob as you spin,
Mantled in mist
Remote from the happy.
-W. H. Auden

Sob not elegant bird
Sob not as you fly,
Mantled in mist
Clothed in the joyous.
